At Google, we think that collaboration is key to making progress toward resolving an issue as significant and urgent as climate change.
We wish to support nonprofits, professionals, and groups working globally to increase knowledge and action associated with climate change. We are searching for solutions that will enable collective climate action and help the international community understand previously hidden climate concerns. Previous Google.org-funded projects have restored ecosystems, mapped emissions on a global scale, and made it possible for small enterprises to understand their carbon footprint.
Applications for the Google.org Impact Challenge on Climate Innovation are now open.
We are looking for transformational solutions that have potential for global impact. While your idea does not need to immediately reach millions of people globally, you should articulate how it could ultimately do so. We encourage collaboration between multiple organizations, as coalitions may be helpful for achieving the scale of solutions we’re hoping to support.
Projects should drive tangible, real world impact for both the climate and people. The proposal should explain how it will tackle climate change and/or the extent to which it will support others to do so too. Successful applications will be grounded in data and research.
Innovative use of technology
Ideas should apply technology by creating or enabling new solutions and approaches. Applications can also propose innovative applications of existing technology – solutions that apply AI and machine learning are encouraged!
Successful proposals will have well-developed and realistic execution plans supported with the resources and expertise needed for implementation. Taking on big, scalable ideas with technology at their core is difficult, and we look for teams that are equipped to implement the proposed project.
How it works
All eligible organizations will submit a project proposal for how they would use funding and additional Google support to meaningfully address a key climate challenge.
Google.org, along with partners and experts, review and select the top applicants as possible projects.
Funding and support
Selected organizations will receive significant funding, along with access to Google’s technical expertise and products, to accelerate progress toward a more sustainable and resilient future.
Deadline for Application is 29th July 2022
