Minor Foundation for Major Challenges — Public Awareness on Climate Change

Climate change is increasingly recognized as a major challenge and has become well established as an important policy area. Despite this, we have yet to see action that matches the magnitude of the problem. A pressing task for climate change communication is therefore to foster a better understanding of the scale of necessary changes and the urgency with which they must be achieved. MFMC will prioritise projects that raise to this challenge and intends to radically scale up its funding to this end.
