Growing out of the environmental justice community in South Africa, EJF was brought to life after many years in the making and is excited to start supporting and growing the environmental justice movement in South Africa. On 24 August 2022, we had our official collective launch at Chiesa di Pazzo Lupi, Johannesburg.

Watch the replay here:

EJF works collaboratively with the vibrant community of NGOs, coalitions, academics, environmental experts, and activists who are friends of the fund. In preparation for the launch, we checked in with some of them.

Here is what they had to say:

Apply for support

We fund events, projects or campaigns designed to advance environmental justice. We also consider applications for organisational-strengthening initiatives. We understand that sometimes it is not possible to predict things in advance, and can therefore provide emergency grants to support responses to urgent and unforeseen crisis.
