Researcher Links Climate Change Challenge Grants 2020

Climate Change Challenge Grants are open by the British Council you can apply now

To promote global sustainable development, it is important to fight climate change and its effects. This call is one of the events organized by the British Council in the run-up to COP26 (the 26th Meeting of the United Nations Parties on Climate Change), which will take place in Glasgow in November 2021.

The mission is to mobilize the power of people around the world to interact and cooperate through culture and education to fight climate change, particularly the youth and those most vulnerable to the impact of climate change.


The Researcher Ties Climate Challenge (RLCC) grants were intended to provide financial resources to organize interactive science workshops for researchers from the UK and partner countries to collaborate on innovative responses to the development challenges of climate change. From a single discipline point of view, complex problems such as climate change will not be solved.
