[Call for Proposals] Raising public awareness of development issues and promoting development education in the EU

Deadline for submission of concept notes: 4 November 2022

The EU Development Education and Awareness Raising (DEAR) programme promotes and enables active engagement of EU citizens, especially young people, in development issues and addressing global
challenges at local and global levels. It is also an important vehicle to promote European values such as
equality and solidarity.

The global objective of the DEAR programme and of this call for proposals is to achieve a more inclusive
society with a developed sense of co-responsibility for local and global sustainable development and global challenges (notably global inequalities and ecological crises).

The specific objectives of this call for proposals are:
1) More EU citizens, including youth, have a critical understanding of the interdependent world as
well as of their own role in it and have the interest to act for sustainable development;
2) More EU citizens, including youth, are actively engaged in sustainable development on local and
global level;
3) Global Citizenship Education is better integrated into formal and non-formal education in EU
Member States.
