About

We have raised £30k to cover printing expenses for local groups of various movements working for climate justice in the UK.

TLDR

If you are part of a movement working for climate justice (Fridays for Future, (Grand) Parents for Future, UKSCN, Extinction Rebellion, …) we can cover your expenses for printing posters, stickers, leaflets, etc. 

Getting funding for local groups is hard

We have created local groups of various movements for the climate ourselves. We know it’s not  easy to get funding to cover expenses. When we organise an action to raise awareness of the climate crisis, we often need to print posters, flyers, leaflets. But there isn’t the time to fundraise properly. Yet, there are foundations and family funds out there that want to support different movements for the climate but they don’t know how to help most effectively.

How frustrating. 

The money is often trapped within NGOs and foundations with slow and highly bureaucratic    application processes, but the energy is within movements where local groups don’t have the time nor the structure to apply for that money.

We decided to do something about it.

We have raised £30k that we will use to reimburse printing expenses made by local groups in the UK working for climate justice (Extinction Rebellion, Fridays for Future, (Grand) Parents for Future, ...). This is a first trial and if successful, we intend to raise more money and expand the programme to other countries (if you want to create such fund in your region, please let us know, we will help you!).

How does it work?

  • You print stickers, flyers, posters, leaflets, pin badges, banners at any printshop in the UK
  • You take a picture of the receipt and submit it as an expense to our open collective (or you ask the vendor to directly file their invoice)
  • You share on social media (twitter, facebook, instagram) a picture of the printed material with the hashtag #allforclimate from the social media account of your group (it has to have at least 50 followers or likes)
  • You share the URL of that social media post as a comment to your expense along with a link for other people to download the source file of what you printed (so that others can copy and adapt!)
  • You will be reimbursed via your PayPal account (or the vendor will be paid via their bank account)
Look at the previous expenses submitted for some examples 👀

Conditions

  • You are a grassroots group for climate justice based in the UK (you don't have a legal entity)
  • Your social media accounts must have at least 50 followers / subscribers (social proof). 
  • You must provide a valid receipt or expense dated in the past 2 weeks.
  • You must agree with Our Principles & Values
  • Maximum £500 per local group per month (to make sure many different groups can benefit)

Who are we?

We are a collective of citizens that have been contributing to different movements for the climate. We have realised that our respective movements share some common issues. One of them is securing relatively small amounts of funding at short notice. We collaborated on weekly calls to understand how we could solve this issue and this is our first trial. We hope that it will help all of you who are already doing so much for the climate.

Thank you all for your work 🙏
