The U. S. Embassy Seoul of the U. S. Department of State announces an open competition for organizations to submit applications to carry out a program to plan and execute a 10-14 day exchange program to the United States for young Korean climate activists.

Please follow all instructions below.

Program Objectives:
As addressing climate change is an essential element of the United States' policy objectives, Embassy Seoul is planning a grant for an exchange program for young climate activists in Korea to meet with and build synergy on shared environmental goals with counterparts and experts in the United States.

The Young Korean Climate Activists Exchange Program aims to:
· Provide participants with a deeper understanding of the U. S. commitment to and leadership in addressing climate change both at home, and as a partner in multilateral efforts, abroad.

· Build synergy on shared environmental goals between the United States and the Republic of Korea.

· Build relationship with and between Korean and American emerging voices leading the environmental movement in the Republic of Korea and the United States.

· Promote U. S. companies with exemplary corporate social responsibility practices in climate change and environmental sustainability.

The 10-14 days, three city (Washington, D.C.

and two additional locations) program would include meetings with and visits to U. S. government agencies focusing on climate change/environment, non-profit U. S. organizations focusing on sustainability, 1-2 U. S. companies with leading corporate social responsibility practices in the area of environmental sustainability, counterpart young, climate activists in the United States, and cultural outings to provide participants with first-hand experience of American culture and values.

An important component and expected outcome of this exchange program is for participants to gain a deeper understanding of the U. S. commitment to addressing climate change and the multi-agency cooperation in place to achieve climate goals.

To demonstrate this commitment and to provide participants with an understanding of the U. S. federalism government structure, the proposal should include concentrated engagement in a large city or state capital that highlights corresponding state and federal efforts on climate change.

Please also note that the program should align with laws, guidance, and Executive Orders passed by President Biden since January 202 1. This program would take place in July of 202 2. The program will include 10-15 young Korean climate activists.

In addition, please budget for two (2) local Korean language interpreters to accompany during the two-week program.

One Embassy Seoul employee will plan to accompany to engage, liaise, and troubleshoot.

The applicant organization should plan to include the Embassy staffer in making logistical arrangements, including any cultural activities or ground transport.

However please note funding for the Embassy staffer’s flights and hotels will be borne directly by the Embassy (i.e., not included in the award budget).

Participants and Audiences:
Young Korean climate activists (age 15-30) who have demonstrated leadership in the climate change movement in the Republic of Korea.
