In Europe, nationalism, isolation and separatism are becoming more common, making people feel polarised and powerless. We are witnessing a rise in hate speech targeted at those who are fighting inequalities. The right to express cultural or personal stories and opinions is increasingly under threat. Our right to public space is being taken away and our physical personal freedoms are being challenged. We believe these threats to democracy represent an attack on the major achievements in culture and civilisation that have been so hard won through European unity.
Your idea could be local, national or transnational, online or offline, and you can be based anywhere in the world but it must be striving towards stronger unity in Europe. This means projects whose focus is only artistic or only educational do not match our criteria.
You need to be above 18 years old and can apply as an individual or as an organisation.
Grants are available in three amounts:
o Small: €5.000 – 15.000
o Medium: €15.000 – 30.000
o Large: €30.000 – 50.000
We do not support proposals submitted by political parties. Our work is strictly non-partisan, although pro-European.
The call is ongoing with a deadline of 27 September 12:00 CEST
