About us

“Towards an open, fair and sustainable Europe in the World”

The slogan of the EU Presidency Project (EUPP) is a call to action for all of us! We join hands to increase public support for a European Union that puts global solidarity, the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development, development cooperation, human rights, and the inclusive participation of civil society at the centre of its work.

EUPP brings together national and pan-European NGO platforms for development and relief representing the current and upcoming EU Council Presidencies. From July 2023 to December 2024, La Coordinadora (Spain), CNCD-11.11.11(Belgium), HAND (Hungary) and the pan-European NGO network CONCORD closely collaborate to advocate for coherent development cooperation policies and positive change in Europe and beyond.

The four partners pursue the efforts of previous EUPP trios. The Polish, Denish, and Cypriot national NGO platforms will then take over the project in 2025.
