Future Earth—a network of scientists set up by the UN to advance research in sustainability—has launched the second round of its Pathways Communication Grants, which are new this year. The grants offer small sums to help ensure that science on the development of pathways for sustainability reaches audiences beyond the scientific community. The programme supports projects that use innovative communication formats and practices to disseminate research findings.
