Each year, the CIVIS European Civic University offers the opportunity to its community - students, academics, researchers and administrative staff - to submit an ongoing or new initiative that fits the civic values and goals of the CIVIS Alliance by developing civic engagement activities within the consortium.

The purpose of the call is to support valuable civic initiatives to strengthen social cohesion and solidarity among the CIVIS community at local and global level. The selected proposals will be rewarded with the CIVIS label and will be eligible to apply for the CIVIS Award.

The project proposal may have an added value by addressing the ambitions of the CIVIS challenges linked with the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations, involving NGOs and external partners from the African and Mediterranean regions or by connecting your project to local and regional development goals.

Possible topics of your project may include:

  • climate change
  • inclusive and quality education
  • gender equality
  • peace, justice and strong institutions
  • sustainable cities, communities and clean energy
  • human rights
  • inequality reductions
  • green energy
  • health and well-being
Projects must be submitted using the online form (see section: application form). The applications will be evaluated on a quarterly basis (every four months) with the first evaluation of proposals planned for 31 May 2021.
