Ukraine Calling programme helps to find collaboration partners
The Ukraine Call programme offers seminars and workshops to provide orientational and applied knowledge on the topic of local development, as well as to assist its participants in developing cross-sectoral competences and to foster international networking, for civil society organisations and initiatives from Ukraine, Belarus, France, Poland and Germany on local development.
Actors from various fields (i.a. education, human rights, culture, media, academia) are invited to apply, introducing a project idea for cross-sectoral transnational cooperation, that they want to develop for subsequent implementation after the programme.
A special focus of Ukraine Calling concerns the questions about the way societal challenges can be tackled better by projects involving actors from different sectors (i.e. civil society, culture, city administrations): What are success factors for cross-sectoral collaborations? How to bring differing expectations and logics together to serve a common goal?
The costs for the events, workshops, accommodation, catering during the seminars and travels to Frankfurt (Oder) and Kyïv will be covered by the organisers. Furthermore, participants are supported with a kick-off grant (up to 400 €).
