These assist individuals and organisations with promoting ecological science to a wider audience through the organisation of public engagement events. Grants support projects that:
- increase public understanding of, and engagement with, ecology;
- stimulate discussion about ecology and its implications for society;
- inspire and enthuse people of all ages about the science of ecology, especially those not previously interested;
- develop skills in communicating the science of ecology.
Individuals and organisations, including society members, researchers, schools, museums, libraries and community groups, are eligible to apply. Activities must be aimed at a non-academic audience, and must provide a clear demonstration of direct interaction with the public.
Grants are worth up to £2,000 each.
