We got to know the winners and winners of the second Mikrogrants recruitment this year, among which 38 new proposals for activities in Wrocław will be implemented.
continuous from 1 to 15 May recruitment for Mikrogrants was, as usual, divided into three paths – for adult individuals and informal groups, for non-governmental organizations and for informal youth groups. Due to the upcoming summer holidays, organizers called on people to sign up for events that would mainly take place in the open air. – Wrocław has many open green areas that are ideal for organizing a micro-grant initiative. The coming months are the perfect time for outdoor activities, so we’re glad so many people have decided to plan their activities in parks, plazas, and even riverbanks! – comments from the organisers.

Micro-grants for individuals and informal groups
