Our New Project: Bridge 47 – Building Global Citizenship

Bridge 47 – Building Global Citizenship

The EU-funded Bridge 47 – Building Global Citizenship -project aims to mobilize global civil society to contribute effectively to global justice and eradication of poverty through global citizenship. The project started in October 2017 and will continue until October 2020.

Kehys is the lead agency of the project, and responsible for coordinating the global Bridge 47 Network, which is one of the outcomes of the project. The project assists in setting up sustainable working structures for the network and facilitates the coordination of the network. The aim is to set up the network in such a way that the network and its activities can be sustained by the network members themselves, and they are no longer dependent on external funding after the project has ended.

In addition to coordinating the Bridge 47 Network, the project aims to advocate for policies that reflect the essential role of GCE in delivering the SDGs, build new partnerships between different actors and increase the capacity of European CSOs to develop and use innovative approaches to GCE.

The project consortium consist of two global networks (CIVICUS and ICAE), three national development education networks (in France, Ireland and Scotland), six national CSO platforms (in Bulgaria, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Slovakia and Slovenia), four organisations active in GCE (in Cyprus, Denmark, Latvia and Serbia), and a European research network (EADI).
