Who can take part?
Basically all groups (e.g. associations, organizations, schools, community groups) actively involved in a project of benefit to the community can enter the ideas competition.The project must be carried out by a partner from Germany, another from France and a third from another EU member state. In particular, groups with little experience in international cooperation are encouraged to enter.
The topic of your project can be from a wide range of areas, for example culture, education, health, social issues, sport or the environment. For us, it is more important that the international aspect of the projects leads to new impulses in the practical work.
A knowledge of the partners' languages would be helpful, but it is not a requirement for participation. Our experience with previous programmes (2007 – 2014) has shown that there is always a way to communicate.
The information on the platform and communication with the moderators and other participants will be in three languages (German, French, English).
