“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 2020 to December 2021, VENRO (Germany), Plataforma Portuguesa das ONGD (Portugal), SLOGA (Slovenia) 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 the previous EUPP cooperation between FOND (Romania), Fingo (Finland), CROSOL (Croatia) and CONCORD (January 2019 to June 2020). The French, Czech, and Swedish national NGO platforms will then take over the project in 2022.
The Portuguese NGDO Platform is an umbrella organisation for NGDOs that work on development cooperation, development education and global citizenship as well as humanitarian and emergency aid.
From July to December 2020, Germany presided over the Council of the European Union for the 13th time.
Portugal’s fourth EU Council Presidency started on 1 January 2021 and will run until 30 June 2021.
From July to December 2021, Slovenia will take over the EU Council Presidency for the second time.
CONCORD is the European confederation for relief and development NGOs. As the Presidency Project’s pan-European platform, CONCORD acts as each presidency trio’s base in Brussels.
