About this grant

Founded in 1999, the New America Foundation is a nonprofit organization that nurtures new generations of public intellectuals to address major social, economic, and political challenges in ways that engage the public at large. With Mott support, the grantee will launch the Climate Leadership Council, a new international research and advocacy organization aimed at mobilizing global opinion leaders around the most effective, popular, and equitable climate change solutions. Activities will include recruiting founding members for the council, beginning operations in the United States and Europe, and preparing for a high-profile launch event in early 2017.
