About the Programme

The German Government is funding cooperations with partner organizations from the civil society in the Eastern partnership countries and Russia. The goal is to establish permanent cooperation between civil-society actors and pursue one of the following additional goals:

  1. Strengthening pluralism
  2. Promoting the discussion of values
  3. Opening up prospects for the future
  4. Fostering dialogue and understanding

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 organize a conference (16.–20.6.) to bring together potential partners.
