Detailed Description

The Bengaluru Sustainability Forum (BSF) under its Small Grants Programme calls for grant proposals around the issues of urban water, urban biodiversity and urban climate change.

Project proposals that connect any of the aforementioned to other aspects of urban sustainability, e.g. quality education, responsible production and consumption and/or reduced inequality are equally welcome.

The Small Grants Programme is designed to break open silos of expertise and call for collaborations across different professional backgrounds. They therefore strongly encourage cross-disciplinary projects and involvement of stakeholders on the ground as well as collaborative applications of at least 2 individuals/organizations/institutions.

  • Examples of appropriate activities for these grants include documentation, data collection, research, outreach and communication, training, workshops, citizen science and citizen engagement.
