Momentum for Change holds calls for applications on an annual basis. Prospective activities must already be
demonstrating results in mitigating or adapting to climate change and have a scalable, replicable,
transformative and innovative component.
Each year, the Momentum for Change Advisory Panel selects a small number of activities to become Lighthouse
Activities. These activities are recognized during the United Nations Climate Change Conferences.
All applications that meet the criteria will be presented in the Momentum for Change activity database.
