Thriving Earth Exchange Project

Now accepting submissions for September and December 2019 project launches!  Communities of all kinds interested in working with a scientist to advance local priorities are invited to apply using the webform below.

Communities will be contacted on a rolling basis. Apply by:

  • August 16, 2019 – to get started in September
  • November 15, 2019 – to get started in December


Thriving Earth Exchange projects start with community priorities. Communities of any size from around the world are encouraged to submit a local priority, issue and/or project idea related to natural hazards, natural resources, or climate change. Projects are supported by specially trained staff and volunteers, and typically conclude within 6-18 months.

Any community can start a Thriving Earth Exchange project. All we ask is that you commit the time and energy needed to work hand-in-hand with a volunteer scientist. (Read more about what it means to be a Thriving Earth Exchange community leader.)
