University of California, Santa Barbara: Inviting Applications to bring together teams of 12-18 people from diverse organizations to tackle questions at the heart of sustainable economic development, human well-being and nature conservation.

Donor Name: University of California, Santa Barbara (The Science for Nature and People Partnership (SNAPP))
Funding name: SNAPP Call for Proposals 2017

Funding brief: The Science for Nature and People Partnership (SNAPP) takes on this key challenge and believes that successful solutions cannot be achieved by any single organization acting alone.

Just as human and natural systems are bolstered by biodiversity, people tackle complex problems more readily in diverse environments. SNAPP provides funding to bring together teams of 12-18 people from diverse organizations that we refer to as working groups. SNAPP working groups meet intensively in 3-4 in-person collaborative sessions (lasting 3-5 days each) over the course of 18-24 months. Strong leaders with open minds and flexible facilitation styles guide the teams to tackle questions at the heart of sustainable economic development, human well-being, and nature conservation. Between sessions, team members collaborate remotely to publish research, develop implementation tools and products, and support decision-makers’ use of the results.

Deadline: 5pm PDT on June 7, 2017
