Institute for Climate and Society is a philanthropic organization that supports projects and institutions that aim to strengthen the Brazilian economy and the geopolitical positioning of the country, in addition to reducing inequality by tackling climate change and providing sustainable solutions.
iCS was created in 2015, the same year as the Paris Agreement. Its function from the beginning has been to finance and catalyze the climate agenda in Brazil. The Institute embraces its mission with practical and strategic work, bringing to Brazil resources from major international funders – and raising support from Brazilian funders – to support various local agents who fight for Brazil in order to avoid the negative impacts of global warming. Much more than a financial intermediary, iCS promotes dialogue between the sectors, adds knowledge and establishes networks of information, intelligence and cooperation, aiming to achieve the well-being of the population.
The Sunrise Project is a network of changemakers who believe in the power of social movements to change the world.

Now, more than ever, we need to nurture and scale powerful movements to solve the climate crisis.
Sitting at the intersection of social movements and philanthropy, we’ve developed a ‘directed network’ model that supports networks of people and organisations to work together to achieve large-scale change that wouldn’t have been possible by individual organisations acting alone.
