  • Contribute to positive environmental change by addressing climate change, plastic & pollution, or biodiversity loss either directly (ex. reducing reliance on single-use plastics, restoring habitats, improving access to sustainable seafood, etc.) or indirectly (ex. encouraging nature connectedness, promoting accessibility & inclusivity in environmental spaces, raising awareness of environmental issues, combating climate anxiety & eco-grief, developing, and delivering education workshops and activities, etc.); and
  • Utilize the microgrant funds and submit a final or interim report by February 15, 2024 project activities may however continue beyond this date);
  • Be led by a youth or young professional aged 15 to 30 at the time of applying for the microgrant; and the lead youth must be a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or person granted refugee status in Canada.
