IDEA Briefing Session on 2018 DEAR Call

Start Date: 31/07/2018 End Date: 31/07/2018

Event Location: IDEA Office, 6 Gardiner Row, Dublin 1.

IDEA is hosting a briefing session on the 2018 DEAR Call for members in the IDEA Office on Wednesday 01 August 12.00 – 1.00pm.

The European Commission’s Development Education and Awareness Raising (DEAR) Call for proposals was launched on 12 July. The call is open to Development Education and Awareness raising projects that mobilise citizens, particularly young people in EU member states on migration issues and climate change.

This briefing session is an opportunity for those interested in taking part in the Call to find out key information about it, based on what has been shared by the European Commission to date. IDEA has also been successfully involved in previous DEAR Calls with the Challenging the Crisis, DEEEP and Bridge 47 projects, and we will be sharing relevant learning from these experiences.
