Call for proposal - European remembrance 2015 Remembrance 2015 Closed!


Under the overall aim of bringing the Union closer to citizens the general objectives are:
  1. to contribute to citizens' understanding of the Union, its history and diversity;
  2. to foster European citizenship and to improve conditions for civic and democratic participation at Union level.


The European Union is built on fundamental values such as freedom, democracy and respect for human rights. In order to fully appreciate their meaning, it is necessary to keep the memories of the past alive as a means of moving beyond the past and building the future.
This Strand will support activities that invite to reflection on European cultural diversity and on common values in the broadest sense. In this context, it aims to finance projects reflecting on causes of totalitarian regimes in Europe's modern history (specially but not exclusively Nazism that led to the Holocaust, Fascism, Stalinism and totalitarian communist regimes) and to commemorate the victims of their crimes.
The Strand also encompasses activities concerning other defining moments and reference points in recent European history. In particular, it will give preference to actions which encourage tolerance, mutual understanding, intercultural dialogue and reconciliation as a means of moving beyond the past and building the future, in particular with a view to reaching the younger generation.
The projects under this strand are expected to include different types of organisations (local authorities, NGOs, research institutes, etc.) or developing different types of activities (research, non-formal education, public debates, exhibitions, etc.) or involving citizens coming from different target groups.
Moreover, projects should be implemented on a transnational level (creation and operation of transnational partnerships and networks) or with a clear European dimension.
