1) Objective

The new edition of the Culture of Solidarity Fund welcomes European transnational collaborative initiatives that address the theme of just transition and environmental sustainability from a specific cultural angle.

Climate change is the most pressing concern of our time. A successful systemic transition from resource-intense Western lifestyles to more sustainable models requires a radical change in individual and societal values relating to work, the environment, and social justice. However, such a transition must be fair and equitable. Culture plays an important role in this context because it shapes people’s beliefs and behaviours. Cultural and art organisations, community media, activists, and creative sectors have a unique ability to foster solidarity, raise critical questions, and build consensus.

For this edition, they are looking for new ideas and experimental initiatives that address just transition from an inherently cultural angle by:
• raising public awareness of the complexities and urgencies of adapting to climate change and other environmental emergencies in a systemic way;
• reinforcing democratic decision-making processes against growing political polarisation by creating a safe environment for open communication, candid exchange and respectful dissent on these issues;
• designing creative solutions for changing ecosystems;
• encouraging holistic working approaches and culture-driven cooperation between public and private stakeholders who are key actors in social and economic transformation.

2) Eligibility

The call is open to civic, public, or private organisations with legal status that operate in the cultural and creative or other sectors of society, including education and academia, health and social care, environment, human rights, social entrepreneurship, rural development, spatial planning, social entrepreneurship, etc.
