Climate & Gender Fellowship 2024
About the programme
Read this page in Spanish

This is a 10-month programme scheduled to commence on the 2nd of April, with the following key components:

  • Improvement of Project Management Skills:
    We will conduct three training sessions focused on enhancing the project management skills of the selected climate activists. Each participant will develop an innovative climate-gender project with our mentorship, promoting sustainability and potential growth.

  • Implementation of Youth-led Climate Projects:
    The participants will have six months to implement their projects, and the funding for each project will not be predetermined. Instead, it will be based on the individually designed proposals of the activists. The total budget for all projects is 30,000 USD, with a maximum of 2,500 USD per participant. We encourage collaborative budget planning among participants to foster a sense of community and encourage them to think collectively about how to use the available budget effectively.

  • Overall Capacity Building:
    Five tailored training sessions will address specific needs expressed by participants during the registration process, aiming to enhance their effectiveness as climate activists. Additionally, we plan to visit a minimum of two projects in the region to provide valuable feedback and further support to the participants.

  • Collaborative Learning Community:
    Four cohorts will be organised and led by participants focusing on their respective areas of expertise, encouraging leadership and collaboration.

  • Amplification of Voices and Narratives:
    We want to highlight the positive impact of these activists and their projects. Four webinars and the publication of one blog or communication material per participant, will contribute to creating awareness about climate challenges in the region. 

  • Creation of a Youth Women Climate Network:
    An in-person meeting with our long-term climate partner CEPAD in Nicaragua will provide a platform for the participants to share experiences and learnings. This meeting will be instrumental in tailoring the next steps for the group, with the goal of establishing a Youth Women Climate Network. This network will play a crucial role in future Climate Fellowships by creating a space for participation and empowerment for young women climate activists in the region.

Climate change is a justice issue

Those who have the least political and economic power, and the least responsibility for the changing climate, are affected the most.


We partner with CEPAD in Nicaragua to empower seven communities in Teustepe with the skills, knowledge and community resilience required to address their own problems.

Once In A Lifetime

A short social-friendly snippet from Amos Trust’s Once In A Lifetime climate justice summit in Cambridge in September 2019 when we were joined by climate activists, thinkers and doers.


We support rural communities in Nicaragua through our partner CEPAD but we can’t do it without your help. Every penny goes to supporting those most affected by climate change.
