Roots Micro-grants 2024

Accessible funding is essential to support the flow of finance towards climate solutions, and away from fossil fuels. It is fundamental in helping to build stronger, adequately resourced movements with the resources to properly campaign and organize. Currently, there is a gap between access to resources and emerging climate initiatives driven by young community activists and organisations.

That's why Roots is offering micro-grant support for projects, initiatives, research, or campaigns that advocate for climate justice through an intersectional lens; have strategies rooted in radical systemic change; and reach new, persuadable audiences.
