Healthy Lungs for Life grants open for applications!

We are thrilled to announce that ELF will again be partnering with the Forum of International Respiratory Societies (FIRS) to offer 10 grants of €1,000. The grants will go to organisations across the globe to help us improve lung health as part of Healthy Lungs for Life (HLfL) and World Lung Day.

HLfL is a global public awareness campaign that currently focuses on physical activity, (#TakeTheActiveOption), air quality (#BreatheCleanAir), stopping smoking (#BeSmokeFree), vaccination (#Vaccinate) and climate change (#FightClimateChange).

Find out more about the Healthy Lungs for Life campaign.

World Lung Day is a day for lung health advocacy and activities supporting this. By coordinating events to fall on the same day we can make more noise about lung health, sending a powerful statement across the world.

HLfL grants

We know that organisations working within their local communities are able to connect and inform in ways that can bring about real change. We want to provide funding to enable their work, helping us to reach more people and connect in imaginative ways.

HLfL grants are available to help organisations run events, create materials and launch online campaigns to promote HLfL and to run activities on and around World Lung Day (25 September).

In 2024 we are only offering the grant to people who have not received a grant in the last 2 years. This is to help us support new people and ensure that the HLfL campaign can reach new audiences.

We will be prioritising projects that highlight the importance of health equity and the impacts of air pollution in line with the priority of World Lung Day, and also engage children and young people.

The deadline for applications is 5 June 2024. Contact us by email for more information or if you have any questions.
