About this grant
The project goal is to involve nongovernmental organizations from the European Union new member states and accession countries in the debate regarding the future of the European Union. In order to coordinate and encourage nonprofit sector input into this debate, a coalition of European nongovernmental organization networks created a campaign called act4europe. The Social Platform network coordinates the campaign. During the grant period, the campaign will address issues related to the ratification of the European Constitution and accessibility of European Union structural funds. This grant increase will enable the Social Platform to widely disseminate the project results, conduct an evaluation of the act4europe Campaign, and prepare a new strategy for its future.
