About the grant: As part of the Pakistan UK Season 2022, we are delighted to announce the launch of the Gender Ecologies Grant Programme.
This fund will offer three to four grants, each worth £30,000 to support the development and delivery of projects that contribute to the Gender Ecologies programme, which explores the intersection of women, climate change and arts. The grants will be awarded to support collaboration between Pakistan and the UK. The proposal will be Pakistan-led.
Women are among the worst sufferers of climate change. They represent the majority of the world's poor and are proportionally more dependent on threatened natural resources.
From drowning in floods, starvation due to increasing food insecurity amidst climate change, to increasing violence during displacement and migration, women tend to be more adversely impacted due to climate disasters.
Gender Ecologies aims to foster a mutual exchange of knowledge and skills, promoting the voice of women, their safety and dignity. It supports cross-disciplinary and collaborative exchange, and aims to explore ways of communicating climate change, showing how arts can be a catalyst for positive change, action, and impact in environmental issues.
