The Ecoversities Alliance sends out a Germinator call once a year offering seed money to jump start projects that can eventually transform into a full Ecoversity. We recognize that building your own Ecoversity is a complex challenge which can also request a large budget. Although currently we cannot fund the full creation of an Ecoversity, we are able to provide seed money to help with the initial efforts. Setting up an ecoversity requires a group of passionate committed people that are willing to invest time and effort in long term processes. Therefore we propose the following criteria in order to distribute the funds in a fair manner and in the spirit of cooperation and collaboration.
