Call for Tenders - Future of Europe 2020

We announce hereby a tender for the Future of Europe debates header. This tender will be financed through, and support the fulfilment of, the Operational Grant of Europe for Citizens.

The goal of the Future of Europe debates is to stimulate young people to participate fully as European citizens in discussions surrounding EU politics relevant to contemporary issues, including: the undermining of democracy and rule of law by disinformation and fake news; negotiations surrounding the 2021-2027 EU budget; and the prospective EU Green New Deal. The method utilised by prospective partners should be embedded within the pedagogy of debate education, as recognized by the International Debate Education Association.
