The 2015 Paris Accords and SDGs launched, a 3-decade, low carbon transformation, recognising “Climate Change is existential”. This is the rationale for SUN – the Strong Universal Network. Under the initial guidance of our friend and mentor, the late Maurice Strong - sustainable development pioneer, we are creating an eXchange for learning, innovation and resilience through Impact-Travel. With a growing cadre of graduate climate champions, supported by Maurice Strong Legacy Scholarships.

Maurice Strong Legacy Scholarships

We are offering 2 one-year postgraduate Maurice Strong Legacy Scholarships ($3,000 plus living support) and 40 Lifetime Learning SUNx memberships. The award recipients will work in Naples (Italy) at CNR-IRISS, which also hosts the t-FORUM headquarters. One will focus on Climate Resilience / innovation, and cultural heritage. The other will deal with portal content management and network expansion for t-FORUM, aimed at bridging theory and practice.

Applications close 15th August 2018: Winners announced 1st September. Scholarships commence 15th September.
