Applications are now open for the Knowledge-into-Use awards, hosted by the Resilience Evidence Coalition. This prestigious award recognises innovative and creative approaches to capturing and presenting resilience knowledge and evidence. Apply by 26 May. 

The award offers prizes of 100,000 Swedish Krona across three categories:

Performing Arts: Celebrating the power of performing arts such as theatre, music, improv, and folk performances in conveying resilience knowledge.

Visualising Evidence: Recognising creativity in visual storytelling, including art installations, graphics, animations, and chronicling recipes and cuisines that are climate resilient.

Participatory Approaches: Applauding initiatives that connect arts and science through citizen science, participatory arts, gamification, and other participatory approaches.

The award provides tailored mentorship and support from various experts, including CDKN's Dr. Nadia Sitas, who is the  Ecosystem-based Adaptation thematic lead. Other mentors include Rohan Chakravarty, creator of Green Humour—a series of cartoons and illustrations on wildlife and nature conservation—and Claire Homewood from CareCreative, a Cape Town-born artist inspired by wild nature and environmental concerns
