UP TO eu 50,000 FOR YOUR IDEA!

Advocate Europe is looking for original and transnational project
proposals that foster connection and cohesion in Europe

At the end of January, Advocate Europe will open its online platform.

For six weeks you can propose non-profit ideas, initiatives and prototypes
of projects that foster connection and cohesion in Europe. Ideas that
transform Europe and show that a different future is possible. Ideas which
demonstrate that when active and engaged people come together they can
co-create a different way of handling crises. Ideas of a Europe defined by
possibilities, not by limits.
Advocate Europe is open to civil society actors who seek financing and
support to realise sustainable ideas. These can come from fields as
diverse as social innovation, arts and culture, or civic education.

Up to twelve winning proposals will receive funding of up to eu 50,000
each, as well as mentoring and support. Download the Advocate Europe idea
