JWH grants for young people in the environmental sector in developing countries

The Joke Waller-Hunter (JWH) Initiative creates opportunities for young people in the environmental sector in developing countries to unfold their full potential. By providing small grants to individuals to expand their knowledge, experience and training, the Initiative aims to strengthen environmental Civil Society Organisations capacity and efficiency. The mission of the JWH Initiative is thus to provide an accessible and tailored small grant for education and training of individuals who are nominated by their organisation as potential future leaders.

  • fully embracing the idea of sustainable development, gender equality and climate justice.
  • having a strong background in and commitment to working on environmental and sustainable development issues.
  • showing potential and ambition to be innovative and creative.
The grant can be applied for a wide range of activities, depending on the individuals’ need and interest. Most grantees request funding for advancing either their knowledge, and skills through courses, training or expanding their experience through internships, exposure and exchange travels, participation in conferences, high level meetings etc. It is crucial the activities requested are exclusively for personal development and should not be part of a larger organisational project.
