Call for projects that put culture at the heart of Baltic Sea cooperation and empower the future-builders of the region

Call for projects that put culture at the heart of Baltic Sea cooperation and empower the future-builders of the region: Call open from 15 February – 31 March 2018

Regional Identity is a long-term priority of CBSS aiming to develop and foster the concept of a belonging to the Baltic Sea Region through engagement, dialogue, people-to-people contacts, networks and multilevel governance. We would like to see projects that focus on either one or all of the following: culture, education, children and youth.

Projects for, with and by children and young people are highly valued. The projects shall aim to strengthen children and young people’s influence and participation in organisational, cultural, and educational settings (international labor and student mobility, improved common education and labor market) and to strengthen a sense of “we-feeling” in the Baltic Sea Region.

Cultural co-operation in the Baltic Sea Region has many facets and we welcome projects driven by the highest artistic quality, as well as where culture is used as a force to build bridges across borders, as well as social and political differences. The declaration of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 offers a fantastic opportunity to focus on Baltic Sea Region cultural heritage. Looking at our common history fosters mutual understanding and is an important prerequisite for jointly tackling the challenges the Baltic Sea Region faces today.

What are the platforms for cooperation on education in the Baltic Sea Region in the future? CBSS has for years devoted attention to higher education, with projects within this field still remaining of high interests. We also welcome projects in other fields within education and projects that address the need for a strategic approach toward education in the region.

To qualify for funding, projects must also reflect dimensions of sustainable development and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Projects supported should provide space for both professionals as well as ordinary citizens to get involved and make their voices heard. Respect for the inviolability of human dignity – regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation or disability is implicit and every project should take gender mainstreaming into consideration.

Project Support Facility (PSF) in brief:

  • The projects should be transnational in character and aim to have a sustainable outcome.
  • The maximum amount of co-financing granted is 65 000 euros.
  • The project proposals may be initiated by individuals, groups, organisations, institutions, associations and companies in the CBSS Member states, as well as CBSS Expert Groups and CBSS Networks.
  • The granted projects should have the potential to become a basis for a network, partnership or cooperation model that would become viable beyond the duration of the project life itself.

Apply by 31 March 2018
