ALDA and its partners – EuroBelarus International Consortium, Centre for Cultural Management from Ukraine, ICOM Moldova National Committee, Millennium Foundation for Education and Research from Armenia, and the Belarussian Public Association Centre for Social Innovations – kicked off a new project on cultural heritage as an opportunity for conscious and engaged citizenry in the summer 2015.

The project’s objective is to enhance the civil society’s role and to build its organisational capacities to develop a heritage-friendly living environment in Belarus, Armenia, Moldova and Ukraine and across the Eastern Neighbourhood in general.

Over the past few weeks, the partners organised country-based project presentations in Minsk, Vitebsk, Gomel and Grodno (Belarus), Lviv, Cherkasy, Dnipropetrovsk and Mykolayiv (Ukraine), Yerevan (Armenia), in Chisinau and in northern Moldova, the district of Soroca, and in Vanadzor (Armenia)

At the presentations the partners announced the call for proposals to engage the interested local organisations through the regranting scheme. The first stage of the application ran until the end of October. It was open to all the Belarusian, Ukrainian, Armenia and Moldova civil society organisations active in the fields of local development and protection and preservation of culture heritage. The selected initiatives will benefit from organisational development and project design assistance ahead of the final call for submission in the second stage.

It will be a great opportunity for the interested organisations to gain new skills and develop expertise as agents for socio-economic change in their communities. They will also receive a chance to develop their organisational change plan thanks to the assistance of the project country teams.

The project ‘CHOICE – Cultural Heritage: Opportunity for Improving Civic Engagement’ is funded by the European Union.
