What is expected of me once I am a fellow?
Strategize, organize, fight the climate fight. The fellowship is meant to support you and your kick-a** activism. Fellows are expected to take part in joint calls and training, collaborate with other fellows on joint projects and join in-person meetings as fitting.
I am a movement organizer from a different social justice group but have not particularly focused on climate change – can I apply?
The climate crisis demands an intersectional approach. If you are a strong movement organizer fighting an important struggle and plan to build bridges with the climate movement, you are very much invited to apply. The first cohort will focus on the climate movement and we invite activists from different disciplines, backgrounds, and social justice groups to join in order to strengthen our intersectional fight for climate justice.
What if I cannot partake in the fellowship activities anymore?
We know the importance of taking a break. Everybody needs them. We also understand that circumstances might change in a way that you cannot continue the fellowship at all- in such a case, we will jointly evaluate with you whether to pause or end the fellowship.
What do the monthly stipends/payments entail?

However, tax regulation is vastly different across the globe and in some countries you might need to pay taxes on these stipends/payments.
