Climate change innovation marketplace events
What are these events about?
A series of Climate Change Innovation Marketplace events will be held in Melbourne and major regional centres across Victoria in September and October 2017 to identify and discuss regional climate change priorities.
Climate Change Innovation Marketplace events are designed to actively promote ideas and solutions to the challenges of climate change.
We encourage people from community groups, local businesses, universities and TAFEs, research institutions, local and non-government organisations to attend these exciting events.
These events are being held as part of the Climate Change Innovation grants program. The Climate Change Innovation grants program provides $3.8 million in competitive grants funding for innovative projects to address the climate change challenges facing Victoria communities.
Successful projects will receive $50,000-$300,000 in funding. Preference will be given to partnership projects. One of the aims of the Marketplace events is to assist interested organisations in developing partnerships to apply for Climate Change Innovation grants.
