Intercultural Innovation Award, United Nations Alliance of Civilizations and BMW Group. Deadline: 31 May 2019.
Grassroots initiatives that encourage intercultural understanding through innovative methods, with the aim of alleviating identity-based conflicts around the world, are encouraged to apply. Ten organizations will be selected to receive the Intercultural Innovation Award. Based on their needs, recipients will receive a monetary grant to help their projects expand and replicate (total funding available in 2019: USD 100,500). They will also benefit from a one-year mentoring program, which will include capacity-building training in a multitude of areas, from communications to fundraising and project management. Recipients of the Intercultural Innovation Award will also become members of Intercultural Leaders, an exclusive skill and knowledge-sharing digital platform for civil society organizations and young leaders working in the field of intercultural dialogue.
The Austrian Federal Ministry for Europe, Integration and Foreign Affairs will reward successful and solution-oriented intercultural dialogue projects. Are you ‒ or anyone in your network ‒ involved in a project that promotes intercultural dialogue and fits the criteria? If so, they would love to hear from you. They consider initiatives active in one or more of these fields: Art/Culture, Youth, Human Rights, Global Citizenship Education, and Integration. Deadline: 26th of March 2018
