Support Gaia MicroGrants Programme

After successfully running for two consecutive years and supporting over 40 projects aimed at networking and capacity building within SCI, this year the GAIA MicroGrants Programme is testing a new format and will focus entirely on the practical support that SCI branches provide to local communities, mainly through workcamps. We want to challenge branches to show us how they can make a positive impact and if it can be sustained after or between workcamps (e.g. by involving and training local people through SCI activities). We want to bring the SCI motto "Deeds not words" to climate change and sustainability!

Gaia MicroGrants Programme

Gaia MicroGrants Programme is a source of funding for SCI branches and local groups for activities focusing on sustainable living and climate justice.

Providing support to local communities dealing with climate change is particularly urgent in the Global South. That is why a big part of the funding is available only for this region.

Currently the fund is available thanks to the generous contribution of the Terra 21 Foundation. We hope that the fund can reach further and enable more projects to support fronline communities in preparing for climate change and making our food systems more sustainable.

You can learn more about the programme, the application and reporting process and well as examples of funded projects on the GAIA MicroGrants Programme section.
