The 2022 team is an eclectic mix of people with academic and practical experience in areas such as microbiology research, biodiversity conservation, environmental activism, corporate sustainability, agriculture and marine ecosystems.
The Infinite Fellowship for Climate Action welcomes its second team of 24 Fellows from 13 countries. This diverse group of climate change solvers was selected this year after rigorous evaluation of 2703 applications from 50 countries. Since its inception, the fellowship has attracted people from a wide range of backgrounds in law, public affairs, finance, engineering, academia, policy, architecture, corporate sustainability, media, entrepreneurship, environmental activism, and more. This year, the youngest applicant for the fellowship was 16 years old and the oldest was 63. The number of women applicants for fellowships has also increased this year as compared to the previous year.
Fellowships are committed to empowering the global climate action community. This year, the Fellowship has launched 3 AFCA cafes, innovative and collaborative venues located in 3 different countries, where communities can organize meet-ups and collaborate on projects to improve peer-to-peer learning.
Fellowships are open to those who want to run the biggest solutions to climate change mitigation. There are no age, degree, or background criteria for applying for a fellowship. Fellowships offer a powerful combination of knowledge and advice. The curriculum covers three educational pillars – technical knowledge, change-making skills and personal development, and is divided into six sections conducted each two months. Candidates have the option to choose between full-time or part-time track.
