The Climate Strategies Accelerator is currently searching for leaders with ideas for ending our dependence on oil. They’re looking for social, cultural, and political solutions that re-imagine transit systems, water use, land rights, financial markets, consumer behavior, and more –– any idea that stands to dramatically cut oil use.
Once selected, CSA Fellows will join the Oil Breakthrough Lab, a 90-day acceleration sprint in which they’ll receive intensive support from a global network of experts, luminaries, and funders, all with the goal of refining and strengthening their ideas. At the end of the Breakthrough Lab, Fellows will have a chance to pitch CSA’s network of funders, and will be eligible for funding awards ranging from Prototype Grants of $50,000-$100,000 USD to Program Leader awards of $1-2 million USD per year for three years.

Applications will be accepted December 1, 2016 – January 31, 2017. Applicants NEED TO SPEAK ENGLISH since they will be participating in the accelerator program itself.
