Rockefeller Foundation: Envisioning Regenerative and Nourishing Food FuturesDeadline: January 31, 2020
The Envisioning Regenerative and Nourishing Food Futures initiative will support organizations across the globe to develop a vision of the regenerative and nourishing food system that they aspire to create by the year 2050. The initiative aims to empower communities globally to develop actionable solutions and become protagonists in their food future. Creating a compelling and progressive vision for the future of the food system requires a culture of collaboration that rallies industry, policy, academia, and society to act as one.
Up to 10 finalists will progress to a virtual accelerator that focuses on supporting vision teams to continue on their path toward implementation and impact. The accelerator will include mentorship, cohort-based learning, and one in-person workshop with advisors. During this phase, visionaries will make further refinements to their vision. Top visionaries will be announced in September, 2020.
Amount: A total of $2,000,000 is available to make awards that range up to $200,000 each.
Eligibility: Legally registered and organized entities, including companies, governments, cooperatives, communities, partnerships, NGOs, and universities.
Note: Prize participants may submit their visions at any point during the open submission phase and are encouraged to publish an initial post of their submission by the early submission deadline on December 5, 2019. Participants who publish their submission by this deadline will have the opportunity to attend an invitation-only webinar with members of The Rockefeller Foundation’s Food team, the sponsors of this prize. No preference will be given to participants who submit early; however participants who do may benefit from the opportunity to connect with other participants and seek feedback on their submission.
