GAIA MicroGrants focuses on activities in two main thematic areas: preparing for climate change impacts and making our food systems sustainable. Applications are accepted on an ongoing, first-come-first-served basis.

The main goal of the GAIA Microgrants is to increase engagement in these topics among SCI activists and to increase the number of SCI grassroots projects making an impact on sustainability and climate protection.

During the previous 4th phase, the Programme provided support to 9 projects in 8 countries (Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Italy, Bangladesh, South Africa, Malaysia, Hungary, Slovenia). All of the supported activities were focused around forestry or gardening - some from the perspective of food sovereignty and avoiding food waste, others with stronger links to preventing climate change impacts. Activities varied from project to project but included learning about earthworm composting, planting trees, and reviving traditional planting methods.
