About the Programme

The German Government is funding cooperations with partner organisations from Germany and civil society in the target countries (the Eastern partnership countries and Russia) and the cooperating countries (France and Poland).

All projects must pursue at least one of the following overarching objectives

  1. Strengthening pluralism and reslience
  2. Promoting the discussion of values and human rights
  3. Creating future prospects and democratic transformation
  4. Supporting dialogue and rapprochement

In the funding year 2024, projects focusing on one of the following objectives will be given priority in the selection process

  1. Preserving and reconstructing civil-society networks in the context of European cooperation
  2. Counteracting disinformation campaigns and fake news
  3. Strengthening the political and social participation of women, as well as vulnerable and marginalised groups

This website is run by WECHANGE (the offical project partner) and guides through the application process, connects potential partners and gives assistance in practical questions around the project management, like visa regulations, financial calculations and how to deal with bureaucratic requirements. In particular we are organizing events to bring together potential partners from time to time.
