Eco-shout launchpad promotes grants, awards, competitions, fellowships and other opportunities for environmental and social justice groups and campaigns to launch, develop and grow. Add an opportunity to the launchpad and we'll share it through social media at peak times and do our best to shout about it. Share the launchpad with your grumpy mates who think there's nothing good around.
