“Towards an open, fair and sustainable Europe in the World” The EU Presidency Project’s slogan is a vision worth fighting for!
We join hands to increase public support for a European Union which puts the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, development cooperation, human rights, and civil society space at the centre of its work.
Behind this project are national and pan-European NGO platforms for development and relief, representing the current and upcoming EU Council Presidencies. FOND (Romania), Fingo (Finland), CROSOL (Croatia), and CONCORD (pan-European) are proud to collaborate for coherent development policies and positive change in Europe.
Romania was presiding the Council of the European Union for the first time from 1 January until 30 June 2019.
Finland’s third EU Presidency period has started on 1 July 2019 and will last until 31 December 2019.
Croatia will preside the European Council from January to June 2020.
CONCORD is the European Confederation for Development and Relief. We shape EU development policies by combining the advocacy expertise of our members throughout Europe. In this sense, CONCORD is EU Presidency Project’s base in Brussels.
