British Society for Geomorphology - Digital Education/Outreach Resources Call

Deadline: 1st February 2021

Maximum Value: £5000

Total Available: £5000

 

The Geomorphology Outreach Grant supports projects that seek to promote geomorphology as a science and/or the British Society for Geomorphology to a public audience and in education. The Covid-19 pandemic has meant traditional face-to-face engagement activities have not been possible resulting in a large uptake of digital tools. This one-off call will support innovation for sharing geomorphology in the digital realm. This could be the development of web-based materials, digital games, videos, animations, or anything else you can imagine that means we can continue to share the importance of, and our love for, our science whilst we cannot be together. All applications must demonstrate the benefit of the project to the Society.

To apply please use the "Apply" form for the standard Outreach Grant call here.
