Call for 2014 Fellowship Applications

Apply by April 11, 2014 for a Donella Meadows Fellowship to attend the next annual meeting of the Balaton Group. Established in memory of Donella Meadows, the Fellowship's purpose is to empower young and emerging leaders in sustainability research and practice. Fellows are principally, though not exclusively, women from Asia, Africa, Latin America, and Eastern Europe. Application is also open to men and to people from other regions of the world. This program finances the participation of approximately four promising new Balaton Group Members every year, as Donella Meadows Fellows. 

Fellows will be invited to participate in the annual meeting in September. This year the focus is on the post-2015 development agenda process and new sustainable development goals. The event brings together 50 leading scientists, teachers, consultants, writers, and managers in a multi-disciplinary, collaborative environment that encourages debate and learning founded on the highest scientific standards, free of political and economic pressures.

Applicants for the Fellowship must have the support or recommendation of an existing member of the network, should have finished their formal education, be less than 40 years old, and be engaged professionally in an organization or in projects that solve problems related to environment and sustainable development in their own country. They also must have a command of English that is good enough to permit full participation in our meetings, and preferably have a modeling or system thinking background.
