We want to become an avant-garde for changes and innovation in the field of cross-border Baltic cooperation of NGO entities. The project is a reaction to the need of systematic increase in innovativeness of small and medium NGOs from the North of Poland by virtue of their internationalization – only 14% of organisations have ever attempted to cooperate internationally.
The project is addressed to NGO representatives from Pomerania, Warmia and Mazuria. It is going to ensure a long-lasting change in the context of the commencement of internationalisation process, enhancement of projects and processes which have already been taken up by organisations and is going to ensure that a relevant, friendly climate for extensive NGO cooperation is created. The aim of our project is to strengthen other NGOs, increase the quality of their services and international offer as well as to create favourable conditions for their operations in the cross-border and international environment.
– workshops specifying the participants’ needs and expectations on internationalisation;
