Earlier this week, call for proposals (CFP) issues by the King Baudouin in cooperation with partners, and the Slovak Active Citizens Fund made available different sources of funding for projects taking place at national level.
In the Netherlands, it is the company Nike which sponsors projects that address disadvantaged children, youngsters and elderly people and offer an added social value through sports and physical activity, recognising the proven benefits on physical and mental health that regular physical activity creates. The CFP aims to level-off the barriers faced by vulnerable groups in accessing sports and physical recreation. A total budget of 100.000€ is made available. The deadline is on the 20th of January 2020.
In France, and more specifically in the Paris Metropolitan Area, the CFP aims to create, improve and revitalise green spaces in the city. It is carried out by the company Timberland in association with the Roi Baudouin Foundation and can be assessed by local organisations and citizen groups. It is also possible to partner up with local schools to carry out the project. The application is online and the deadline is on the 21st of January 2020.
In Slovakia, the Active Citizens Fund supportprojects across Slovakia in the areas of Citizenship, Defense of Public Interest, Human Rights, Vulnerable Groups and Development of Civil Society Organizations. The aim is to actively involve citizens in decision-making and public policy-making, improve governance, strengthen human rights protection, improve civic education and empower vulnerable groups in society. The deadline is on the 22nd of January 2020.
