Workshop summarising bilateral and regional cooperation
02 April 2024

Summarise your international collaboration with us and plan your further collaboration!

Has your project with a foreign partner come to an end? Do you want to take stock of what went well and what did not go as planned and expected? Would you like to draw conclusions from the cooperation in order to better prepare for the next time, to make effective use of its benefits, but you do not have the opportunity and resources for such an educational and evaluation activity? Come to a workshop we are organising to take stock of international cooperation.

Dear Project Promoters of the Active Citizens Fund – National and Active Citizens Fund – Regional programmes, we would like to offer you an opportunity to jointly summarise your international cooperation (bilateral and/or regional) concluded or ongoing, under our programmes – whether part of bilateral/regional initiatives or in in a project conducted with a partner from Donor States and/or Beneficiary States.

The workshop will take place on 5-6 September 2024 in Warsaw and is free of charge for promoters of the Active Citizens – National Fund and Active Citizens – Regional Fund programmes and their project partners (we will cover the costs of travel, accommodation in Warsaw and meals during the workshop – also for a representative of foreign partners). The workshop will be held in English (no translation).

The objectives of the workshop are:

  • to take stock of the cooperation with the foreign partner,
  • to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the partnership in terms of the expectations of those involved,
  • to try to determine why expectations are not being met, as well as possible misunderstandings in the partnership,
  • to plan internal changes and other strategic activities (e.g. fundraising, how to talk to partners) to prepare for further collaboration with a foreign organisation as effectively as possible.

The workshop will be conducted by facilitators with experience in international cooperation, who will conduct the workshops to the highest standards (including confidentiality, respect and sensitivity to cultural differences, etc.).

We invite one person representing a Polish organisation and one person representing a foreign partner with whom you have implemented a project or initiative to participate in the workshop. The participation of a person representing a foreign partner is not a prerequisite for participation in the workshop, but such applications will be given priority.

If you would like to participate – please complete the application form [here].

One application (completed form) should list both people – representing the organisation and its partner.

Applications will be accepted until 5 May and you will be informed of your eligibility by 13 May.

NOTE: Completion of the form does not constitute admission to the workshop. Priority will be given to those organisations that register their participation together with their foreign partner. Participation of a representative of a foreign partner is not obligatory, but we encourage you to persuade them to come. The organisers will also cover the travel expenses of the foreign partner.
