We're proud to coordinate the Green Action Fund. This annual award aims to promote sustainable development and reduce poverty by promoting worldwide awareness and advocacy activities which encourage sustainable patterns of consumption.
The Green Action Fund is the funding element of Green Action Week, an annual global campaign running in the first week of October, to promote sustainable consumption. The fund is made available by our partner the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation and is administered by Consumers International, with materials, research, policy support, and joint-campaign communications being provided. The theme for Green Action Week 2019 is ‘Sharing Community’. Under this theme, participants are encouraged to expand sustainable access to goods and services by promoting cultures of community sharing and collaboration, while also reducing stress on the planet.
The programme is open to our members in economically developing countries to assist them in carrying out their own campaigns.
To be eligible, membership fees must be fully paid to the current year (including January to December 2019).
