Towards open, fair and sustainable Europe in the world - EU Presidency Project 2019-2021


Fingo leads the EU-funded EU Presidency Project together with the Romanian umbrella organisation FOND, the Croatian umbrella organisation Crosol and CONCORD, the umbrella organisation for European development organisations. The umbrella organisations of the next three Presidencies, namely Germany, Portugal and Slovenia, have also been involved in the planning of the Presidencies to make the activities more effective and long-lasting. The project will have common objectives for all presidencies and consist of both national and European level activities. There will be four focus areas running across the six presidencies: Agenda 2030 and policy coherence for sustainable development, European development cooperation, human rights, and the role of civil society. The project will also have specific priority themes for each presidency, following national priorities and presidency programmes. The overall objective of the project is to increase public support for open, fair and sustainable European policies, especially regarding the 2030 Agenda, development cooperation, human rights, and civic space. The specific objectives are: 1) Civil society in Europe is better equipped to engage in EU-related advocacy and awareness raising. 2) Public awareness and understanding of the EU's global role and the effects of European policies and action globally and especially in the global South has increased. 3) Policies at the European and national level have become more open, fair and sustainable.
