MicroGrants supporting Sustainable Living Activities in SCI Branches / Groups

You are planning a weekend-workcamp in a local biological farm? You would like to arrange a debate/movie evening in a local theater to raise awareness on environmental challenges… You are interested in organizing a local training over a weekend to train volunteers to act as eco-messengers… The MicroGrants are for you! The objective of the MicroGrants is to provide micro-funding (up to 150 euros) to enable volunteers to realize small initiatives at the local or national level.  Selection of the Initiatives We will select initiatives based on two criterias: - their relevance to the topic of “sustainable living”, - their impact (i.e. how you plan to involve more people, have a long term beneficial effect), - its additionality. We also invite you to consider the balance between the footprint (negative impact on the planet, e.g. printing…) and the handprint of your initiative (e.g. reducing energy consumption of a building, additional awareness). Timeframe: The MicroGrants will be distributed on a first came/first served basis. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis during autumn (from 20 th September and until 20th December): you can send us your short description of your initiative any time and we will confirm whether your initiative will be supported by a MicroGrant within a week. Reimbursement - Reporting We will only expect you to fill in a brief evaluation form after the initiative has taken place, to send us your bills as well as 3-6 pictures of what you have done. We will be reimbursed through your national branch, max. 3 weeks after the report was sent.
