Thriving Earth Exchange projects start with community priorities and any community can start a project! We encourage communities of any size and type within the United States to submit a local priority, issue, and/or project idea related to natural hazards, the environment, or climate change.
Check out these examples:
- Assessing Flood Risks for Community-Led Action in Gulfport, Mississippi
- Mapping Heat Vulnerability and Community Health in the Bronx, New York
- And many others!
Thriving Earth Exchange is free of charge for communities, and projects typically do not come with funding: we design projects that make an impact through creative problem-solving, in-kind support, and the resources at hand. Projects are supported by Community Science Fellows – project managers we train and match with you – and volunteer scientists and technical experts.
Thriving Earth Exchange launches projects quarterly, and applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. This is for the April 2022 cohort start.
