Fellows receive training, mentorship, and a part-time stipend, which aims to make their climate organizing work more sustainable. This Climate Parent Fellowship is an opportunity to be part of a supportive and diverse peer-to-peer learning network. Most Fellows are focussed on parent-led climate engagement but this Fellowship is also open to non-parent applicants who are focussing on engaging people across generations.

Fellows are people who are playing a significant role in the climate parent movement or are developing a new idea or concept with potential to strengthen intergenerational climate organizing. We encourage applications from parents, grandparents, carers and anyone working on intergenerational and family-friendly climate organizing. Our selection criteria gives more details on what we are looking for in our Fellows and who is eligible to apply. Read the selection criteria for the Fellowship here.

Climate Parent Fellowship Selection Criteria

Alignment with the climate parent/ intergenerational movement

Fellows play a key role in developing and driving parent-led, intergenerational, or family-focused climate engagement, campaigning, and organizing work. This could include work that is already making a strong contribution to the growing intergenerational movement OR new work that would help strengthen the movement, including but not limited to: expanding geographic representation, increasing diversity, or strengthening a thematic area of work.

Climate work that is not parent-led, intergenerational, or family-focused will not be considered.

We understand that climate engagement, campaigning, and organizing work looks different depending on context and may include environmental and sustainability work.

Note: Intergenerational climate work is defined as climate engagement/campaigning/organizing strategies between two or more generations (e.g. parents and children, youth and elders, grandparent and youth, etc). Funding for youth only engagement/organizing projects is available from other funding sources (e.g. Me & Youth, Climate Justice Squad and UMI Fund) and will not be considered for this fellowship program.


Fellows have demonstrated the ability to both set a strong and ambitious vision and to make that vision a reality. Fellows understand the potential of their work and how it can make a big impact or important contribution to their community and beyond.


Fellows work hard to advance their work despite having limited resources. They play a leadership role and are often called upon to help get stuff done. They have progressed their work past the initial idea phase and are in the process of implementing, growing, or scaling their project, group, or organization despite facing challenges.


Fellows understand that the climate crisis requires us to work in community with others and have a highly collaborative mindset. Collaboration is demonstrated through the relationships Fellows have built: their networks, partnerships, teams, and communities and by exchanging ideas and helping to create space for others to lead. Ideal candidates take a movement generous approach and are working to build the intergenerational movement beyond one specific idea or organization.

Innovation, creativity, and courage 

Fellows are innovative in their work; they are not afraid to develop a new program, try a new tactic, or learn a new skillset. Fellows have a track record of experimenting, taking risks, and/or using creative approaches to help move their work forward.

Established need

This Climate Parent Fellowship is intended to support individuals working to build ideas, projects, groups, and organizations that have genuine financial need in order to move this work forward. Fellowships will not be awarded to individuals who are already receiving sufficient financial support for their work.
