MFMC supports diverse voices that engage citizens, policy makers and businesses to accelerate the transformation to a low carbon society.
Climate change is increasingly recognized as a major challenge and has become well established as an important policy area. Despite this, we have yet to see action that matches the magnitude of the problem. A pressing task for climate change communication is therefore to foster a better understanding of the scale of necessary changes and the urgency with which they must be achieved. MFMC will prioritise projects that raise to this challenge and intends to radically scale up its funding to this end.
The Minor foundation supports communication projects that
aim to reduce GHG emissions in line with the urgent transformation required
lead to policy or behavioural change among decisionmakers or lead to
changes in policies or practices in public or private institutions
increase the public’s support for climate policy measures
are otherwise difficult to fund
Encourage and support innovation in climate communication
Increase the number of voices and narratives in climate advocacy
Help strengthen social and political movements that open up for radical change
Concentrate on supporting European proposals

The Minor foundation supports projects ranging from €20,000 to €200,000, but will consider applications up to €1,000,000.
