A new grant programme was launched on 8 January in Warsaw at a conference attended by representatives of the Polish Foreign Ministry and the Norwegian Embassy, and social organisations from Poland and donor states. The aim of the programme is to strengthen and develop the civic society and active citizenship, and empower vulnerable groups.
Representatives of social organisations are invited to attend the conference launching the Active Citizens Fund – National programme, which will be held in Warsaw on 8 January 2020 at the “Dreamers and Craftsmen” House of Social Innovation, ul. Bracka 25, and on 9 January 2020 – in the Jerzy Turowicz conference room at the offices of the Stefan Batory Foundation, ul. Sapieżyńska 10a.
Consultations are currently being held on the form that the Active Citizens Fund – National programme will take in Poland. This is an appropriate time to recall the activities that organisations from across Poland have performed, and activities they have performed under the Citizens for Democracy programme.
[Active Citizens Fund consultations – have your say!]
The Stefan Batory Foundation, the “Shipyard” Centre for Social Innovation and Research, and the Academy of Civic Organizations Foundation have begun consultations on the Active Citizens Fund-National programme for CSOs financed using EEA funds.
In November 2018, a consortium of three organisations, the Stefan Batory Foundation, the “Shipyard” Centre for Social Innovation and Research, and the Academy of Civic Organizations Foundation, was selected to operate a programme for social organisations, the Active Citizens Fund – National programme, financed using funds from the EEA Financial Mechanism (known as the EEA Fund).
