Case Studies of Innovative Climate Change Communication and Education


Deadline: 4-Jan-22

The Monitoring and Evaluating Climate Communication and Education (MECCE) Project is seeking to fund Case Studies of innovative climate change communication and education (CCE) to inform global understandings of quality CCE.

As climate change impacts increase in frequency and severity world-wide without adequate societal action, the need for CCE has never been more urgent. The MECCE Project is a global collaborative research program working to increase both the quality and quantity of CCE to advance global climate literacy and action. They are a partnership of over 80 leading scholars and agencies, including the IPCC, UNFCCC, and UNESCO working to tackle the challenge of quickly advancing CCE globally.

The Case Studies will assist the MECCE Project in better understanding quality CCE policy and/or practice and in sharing this combined knowledge with policy makers, practitioners, and researchers around the globe. The Case Studies will contribute to an emerging global knowledge base and help inform and improve policy and practice in local, regional, and global contexts. Finally, hopefully your Case Study will also be of benefit to the case you are engaging with, in helping inform and further work in this area in your local context.


Funded case studies will be required to submit:

  • Narrative Final Report (5-10 pages) summarizing the case study
  • Multimedia package to illustrate the case study in action (e.g., photos, videos)
  • Complete Reporting Form
Benefits of Participation and Eligibility

Participants who contribute a Case Study to the MECCE Project will increase their global profile by:

  • Receiving up to $10,000 CAD of funding to develop their case study
  • Showcasing innovative work on CCE at an international scale
  • Connecting with a global network working to improve CCE
  • Presenting their case study at MECCE Project Regional Hub meetings and other venues to exchange knowledge with a network active in advancing CCE
  • Sharing their case study on the MECCE Project’s website, including in their Interactive Data Platform, Blog, and Digital Library

They invite proposals from researchers, practitioners, and stakeholders who are able to conduct high quality case studies of exemplary CCE. The Call is open to individuals, organizations, collaborations, and partnerships.
