In 2021 CAST will be launching a competitive open Impact Fund, which will make small pots of money available for practitioners, communities, or organisations who want to work closely with CAST researchers to co-develop and deliver low-carbon transformative initiatives.
The fund will be open to non-academic organisations wishing to work with one or more CAST researchers, in particular our Early Career Researchers, to either evaluate an existing intervention or co-develop and evaluate a new intervention
Interventions eligible for the fund should aim to decarbonise diet, transport and mobility, heating/cooling, and/or material consumption using a social/behavioural approach that sees people as agents of change. Interventions should focus on creating change at household, community, and/or organisational levels
The total available in first round of funding likely to be £30,000 and match funding or in-kind support is strongly encouraged.
