We know many of you have been working further on the ideas explored at the sprint in May, and that some of the ideas are now getting ready to progress to the next stage. To support this new phase of the Climate Goals Design Sprint, Challenge LDN is making available the opportunity to access seed funding from the GLA. There is £40,000 of funding available in total which will be granted to one or more ideas based upon application by completing the form below. We are looking for applications that will enable projects to be:
  • Ready for delivery by any of the stakeholders, 
  • Ready for procurement, 
  • Further developed into a clear roadmap for delivery.
The judges will be looking to score any proposals on the following criteria:
  • Feasibility. The idea can be put into practise.
  • Roadmap. The team has a clear set of activities and milestones for delivery or a plan for how to create this.
  • Sponsorship. The team have the necessary commitment, time and permission to make the idea come to life, including the funding for phases not covered by the seed finance.
  • Impact. The idea aims to make a difference to the lives of Londoners.
  • Scalability. The idea has the potential to grow with a model that can be replicated by other partners and boroughs who may not initially have been involved in the project.
  • Ecosystem. The idea brings together a wide network of stakeholders and innovators.

Please fill in this form to apply for seed funding.

Deadline for applications midday 28th November.
