International Climate Protection Fellowships 2017 invites applications from young climate experts from developing countries interested in conducting a project in Germany and developing long-term collaborations. This fellowship allows future leaders to spend a year in Germany working on the project of their own choice in the field of climate protection and climate-related resource conservation and they are also free to choose their own host.

An intensive German-language course before you begin the fellowship will smooth your way into everyday life in Germany whilst a continuing education event lasting several days in the course of the fellowship will enable you to acquire not only practical knowledge of climate protection but also expertise in management.
