Catalysts of Change: Call for Proposals (Portugal)

14 February 2024

Monitoring, Advocacy and Coalition Building for Women’s Rights, Environmental Justice & Anti-corruption Grass Roots CSOs

The NHC is pleased to announce a call for proposals funded by the European Union, aimed at strengthening civil society in five EU Member States: Romania, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Croatia and Portugal.

This initiative seeks to empower Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) working on women’s rights, environmental justice, and anti-corruption by enhancing their effectiveness, resilience, and visibility. By creating an enabling environment for these grassroots CSOs, the project aims to bolster the protection and promotion of EU values in these countries, ultimately contributing to the strengthening of EU values at the European level.

Objective of the Call

The general objective of the call is to enhance civil society’s response to new trends affecting democratic and civic space and civil society in the target countries. This call will ultimately help contributing to increase collaboration and networking among CSOs working in the areas of women’s rights, anti-corruption, and environmental justice. It will also encourage CSOs to come together, share resources, exchange knowledge and experiences, and build stronger coalitions at the local, regional, and national levels. Furthermore, it will empower CSOs to implement outreach initiatives aimed at raising awareness about the issues they address, such as workshops, seminars, and media campaigns to engage communities, decision-makers, and the general public in discussions and actions related to women’s rights, anti-corruption measures, and environmental justice.
