Culture and Sustainability
It is vital to involve the cultural sector in sustainable transition. In September, we hosted a partner event under the New Democracy Fund, where young people embarked on a study tour in Aarhus.
The primary theme of the study tour was to explore the intersection between culture and sustainability and to draw mutual inspiration on how art and culture can contribute to the green transition. Strategies and positive experiences were shared, and new cooperation projects between Danish and Eastern Neighbourhood organisations were established.
The study tour also resulted in tangible new collaborations between Danish and Georgian partners.
About the New Democracy Fund
The New Democracy Fund works to promote democratic development in the EU’s Eastern Neighbourhood Countries, which include Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. It happens i.a. by providing support to civil society organisations, creating networks across the region and developing own projects that support free, independent civil societies. The fund works with six different themes: labor market, culture, media, youth, green transition, and gender equality.
The New Democracy Fund is managed by a consortium consisting of 3F, Confederation of Danish Industries, Danish Youth Council, International Media Support, and Danish Cultural Institute as lead partner. The fund is financed by the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
