Four Good Practices

With the conference we aim to connect civil society actors from ten countries for future cooperation. Our goal is to provide a space in which project ideas can be developed. As part of that process we are giving four organisations the opportunity to present a project they implemented successfully during the last funding period. Participants will be able to get inspired and get a glimpse of the wide range of projects that have been supported by the Federal Foreign Office. After each organisation has presented their project, they will be asked questions which will focus on one remarkable aspect of it. The first organisation that has been invited to speak at the conference is betterplace lab. They will present “Civic Tech Sisters” – a program for young female leaders from Ukraine and Germany. After that Eduhub will present their project “Youth-led Community Development” which aimed to foster youth-led community development, qualification, and exchange between young adults from Azerbaijan and Georgia regions. The third project will be presented by Disruption Network Lab and brought together journalists, activists and media experts from Georgia and Germany to discuss strategies to fight misinformation, hate speech and social network manipulation and to strengthen freedom of speech. After that, IBB Dortmund will present their project “Multiple perspectives on history”. For this project participants from Germany, Belarus, Poland, Russia and Ukraine were brought together to further develop pan-European memory culture.
