About this grant
The program goal is to strengthen the capacity of young political, civic, and business leaders from Russia’s diverse regions and to link Russian participants with their peers from Europe. This grant will provide support to the School of Civic Education to conduct a series of six educational seminars focusing on understanding global issues and trends and how they relate to local issues and challenges. Two international conferences will be held in cooperation with the wider European network of similar schools to which the grantee belongs. All meetings will take place outside of Russia and will provide a critical opportunity to link participants with peers from around the world. Established in 2016, the School of Civic Education is based in the United Kingdom.
