Funding opportunities for youth-led climate action projects.

Next deadline for Clean Climate Action Grants: May 26

Our grants help youth in Nova Scotia take action to address climate change in their communities.

Clean Climate Action Grants offers opportunities for youth to develop, create and execute climate action projects that will create positive environmental impacts within their communities. These grants of up to $500 can be used to turn a project idea into a reality. 

Applications will be received and reviewed throughout the year, and must be submitted to Clean by the following dates to be considered:

Who is eligible?

Clean Climate Action Grants are available to youth from schools or other youth groups (e.g., Girl Guides, 4H, library youth groups, summer camps, etc.) that have, or are willing to, participate in a Clean program, workshop or visit in the 2022-23 school year. 

If you’re interested in having Clean do a virtual or in-person visit to your school? Check out our Education Programs! 

Projects must take place within Nova Scotia. 

Youth must have a teacher or mentor identified in the application process. This individual will be responsible for receiving funds, supporting youth actions and communicating with Clean on project activities.  

Any fundraising done in conjunction with this grant must also further climate action efforts.

Is this project aligned with the Nova Scotia curriculum?

Youth-led climate action projects can be wonderful opportunities for cross-curricular learning, as well as for achieving Nova Scotia graduation skills and competencies.
