with the support of the Government of Japan


Issued: 10th April, 2017

Closing date: 8th May 2017, 23:59h Central European Time (CET)

The Sustainable Lifestyles and Education (SLE) Programme is a global multi-stakeholder initiative, with the goal to accelerate the shift towards more sustainable lifestyles and education. The programme was launched in November 2014, as a multi-stakeholder programme to promote sustainable lifestyles and education. It is being co-led by the Ministry of the Environment of Japan, the Government of Sweden, and WWF, with the support of a 22 member Multi-stakeholder Advisory Committee (MAC). Furthermore, the SLE Programme currently has over 80 partners around the globe from all stakeholder groups.

Theme of the Call for proposals: “Reduction of CO2 emission arising from household consumption of energy, food, or mobility through innovative multi-stakeholder partnerships”.


The SLE programme looks for projects that are aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, in particular SDGs 12 as well as targets of other SDGs that are of relevance to sustainable lifestyles and education. Priority will be given to project proposals that demonstrate that they respond to country and/or local needs and contribute to the objectives of the 10YFP.

The projects contributing to the three working areas of the SLE Programme will be considered.

In addition, a successful project will address a core problem related to sustainable lifestyles, and have the potential for upscaling and/or transfer to other national/regional contexts. Preference will be given to high quality proposals that involve multiple actors from different stakeholder groups.
