£10,000 funding available for young people’s environmental projects through O2

O2 is offering of up to £10,000 to 17-24 year olds that come up with a project that uses digital technology to solve an environmental issue.

The Environment Now programme is funded by O2 and the Big Lottery Fund, and is managed by the National Youth Agency. Projects must have a positive and measurable environmental impact in areas such as energy efficiency or waste and recycling, be based in the UK although they may have a wider impact, and not be part of an existing project or charity requiring additional funding to continuing its existing work with no new elements.

Successful applicants will also receive mentoring, work experience and insight days with industry professionals to help bring their idea to life.

Entry is online on the O2 Think Big site.
