Call for applications for Actors of Urban Change
Two more weeks to go for the submission of the applications for Actors of Urban Change. Actors of Urban Change is a Europe-wide pilot program by the Robert Bosch Stiftung in cooperation with MitOst e.V. It aims to achieve sustainable and participatory urban development through cultural activities. This is carried out by strengthening the competencies for cross-sector collaboration among actors from the cultural scene, the administration, and the private sector who form teams of three committed to implementing a project in their city. Using culture as a tool, the projects might address a broad range of social, political and environmental challenges related to urban change.
On a local level, the teams receive support for the implementation of their joint projects through grants and customized coaching. On an international level, they benefit from further qualification through workshops, seminars, peer-learning sessions and field trips during meetings and shadowing internships with teams from different cities, allowing for Europe-wide exchange and networking.
Applications from all 47 member countries of the Council of Europe and Belarus can be submitted until October 27, 2013. A detailed description of the program and contact information, as well as access to the call, FAQs and the online application, are available on www.actors-of-urban-change.eu.
