Nau announces second annual Grant for Change programme

Nau, the Portland-based sustainable, urban and outdoor apparel company has announced the launch of its second annual $10,000 Grant for Change. This year’s grant cycle recognises individuals, small teams and organisations using design as a tool for positive change. From 10th May until 11th June, individuals are invited to submit their stories or nominate others via the Nau website. Submissions will be posted on the site for others to view and share, and the public will then be invited to vote for their favourite nominee, helping to establish a group of ten finalists. The Grantee will be chosen by the Grant for Change leadership panel and will be awarded $10,000 to help further his or her cause. Whether it’s an architect building energy-efficient homes, an urban planner creating greener parks for inner-city children or a visual artist using only recycled materials to create masterpieces, Nau wants to see how global citizens are making a difference in their communities and beyond.

General Manager of Nau, Mark Galbraith, said: “We were so inspired by last year’s 284 participants and all of the amazing ways that everyday people were working to make a difference that we knew we wanted to bring back the campaign for another year. We are excited to see what this year’s program will bring, as we believe design can provide creative, compelling, and effective solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges.”
