Le Project Design Forum donne aux citoyens, aux associations et à d’autres organisations la possibilité de concevoir conjointement des projets et de collaborer à des demandes de projets en vue de recevoir un financement, principalement dans le cadre de programmes de l’Union européenne. Le forum permet ainsi de présenter, de développer et d’approfondir des idées de projets, de rejoindre d’autres projets et de recevoir un soutien direct des points de contact des différents programmes communautaires, sans qu’il y ait pour autant une « obligation de résultat ».
Etaient représentés les programmes Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values (CERV), Erasmus+, Europe créative, Interreg Grande Région, Interreg North-West Europe et Interreg Europe ainsi que la Anna Lindh Foundation. Pour les organisateurs, c’était l’occasion de présenter les possibilités de financement qu’offrent les six programmes communautaires aux citoyennes et citoyens européens. Des présentations, des tables thématiques et des tables « programmes » ainsi que des brochures et des flyers informaient sur les modalités d’un tel projet citoyen. Les présentations et les discussions étaient en anglais et en français mais des explications étaient aussi données en luxembourgeois et en allemand.
L’évènement se clôturait à l’heure de midi par un repas léger et des boissons ce qui permettait de poursuivre les échanges dans un cadre informel et convivial. Une 3e édition est prévue pour l’automne 2023.
The Action Group against Racism and Discrimination was organised within the framework of the "Building Together" project. The aim of the workshop was to sensitize young people about Human Rights, the fight against racism and the fight against discrimination.
Participants learned valuable skills that will positively impact our community. They deepened their knowledge in Human Rights education and developed effective strategies to combat discrimination. They are now better equipped to engage actively in the fight against racism in Luxembourg. Young people also developed methods of educating their peers on important topics such as fighting racism and discrimination.
The project is supported by the Department of Integration of the Ministry of Families, Integration and the Greater Region and co-financed by the European Union.
