Up to € 50,000 for your idea

Advocate Europe is an idea challenge for European projects. We are looking for original and transnational project proposals that foster connection and cohesion in Europe. Advocate Europe is open to civil society actors who seek financing and support to realise sustainable ideas. These can come from fields as diverse as social innovation, arts and culture, or civic education. We fund around twelve project ideas with up to €50,000 each and support their realisation through mentoring and networking activities.

How do we want to live in future? What is the ‘culture of welcome’ we should extend to refugees arriving in Europe? What is the future of social services and welfare systems in Europe? These are some of the questions that the winning projects of the Advocate Europe idea challenge are trying to answer.

Out of 575 submitted proposals, the expert jury has selected ten winners which use original and transnational means to foster cohesion and connection in Europe. Together with the winner of the Community Award – the project Localization of the best European MOOCs for Ukrainians by the Ukrainian NGO Prometheus – these are the eleven winners of the Advocate Europe idea challenge in 2015.
