Idea Sketch


Idea pitch

The project will address the growing tensions in the EU Eastern border. This will be achieved through the implementation of a problem-solving mechanism among civil society actors coming from our 4 target countries. The mechanism will lead to the creation of a self-sustaining civil society platform will be able to enhance reach out and advocacy capacity of the partner organizations in order to accomplish common objectives of democratization, social peacebuilding and civic diplomacy.

Where will your idea take place?

The action will be divided into 2 mirror trainings in Germany (Berlin) and in Poland (Krakow).

Why does Europe need your idea?

In our context political dialogue is stuck and grossly inconclusive. The civic diplomacy approach is based on EU values, to avoid polarization. A sustained dialogue and problem-solving mechanism will be able to create the conditions to support political reconciliation and cross-border cooperation

What is your impact?

We are going to create a multinational platform able to cooperate and to function independently on the topics dealt with by the project. This will enhance partners' sustainability and reach out capacity.

How do you get there?

1)Pre-engagement phase with each participant for establishing dialogue terms
2)A first phase of skill-transfer and competence building training conducted with a task oriented approach
3)A working-break in which the partners operate separately to integrate the first phase in their in-house realities
4)A second phase of plenary work in which the participants will come together to realine
their reality in a common platform
5)On remote phase of mentoring and the start up of our peace platform

What is your story?

The concept takes its inspiration from the experience collected by the project manager in the Caucasus. In order to be effective peace and democratic advocacy must be self-sustainable trans-national and able to advocate commonly shared agendas.

Who are you doing it for?

We are operating for social activists and social workers that feel disempowered and oppressed by the limitation of their territorial reality. In the era of communication only shared networks and common platforms can strengthen our work and our advocacy capacity.

What do you need from the Advocate Europe community?

Any form of communication and further networking would be a great achievement in itself. Quality management in both the organizational and the content side of the proposal will be highly valued as well.
