People Powered Climate Democracy Accelerator (CDA) 2024 


The 2024 People Powered Climate Democracy Accelerator Program is now accepting applications. To create a new cohort of innovators interested in initiating participatory programs to shape climate policy in areas like clean transportation, renewable energy, decarbonization and energy-efficient homes, air pollution, agroecology, and more, People Powered is seeking leaders in the public and private sectors.

To be selected for this program, applicants must be governmental institutions, civil society organizations or non-governmental organizations. The program is open to applicants from all over the world, with space for 15 participants per cohort.

Who can apply?


This program is designed for organizations, not individuals. Here are the specific types of organizations that are eligible to apply:

  1. Governmental Institutions: This includes ministries, departments, agencies, and other public bodies at the national, regional, or local level.
  2. Civil Society Organizations (CSOs): These are non-profit, citizen-based groups that work on a variety of social issues. Examples include advocacy groups, community development organizations, environmental NGOs, and human rights organizations.
  3. Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs): Similar to CSOs, NGOs are independent, non-profit entities that focus on a range of social, environmental, or humanitarian issues. The key distinction is that NGOs often operate internationally.

Limited Spots:


While the program is open globally, there’s a limit of 15 participants per cohort (a group of participants going through the program together). This ensures a more personalized experience with ample opportunity for interaction and discussion.
