About us

“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.


The Romanian NDGO platform was founded in 2007 and is currently counting 33 member organizations that engage their work in development and international cooperation


Fingo is an umbrella organisation for Finnish NGOs working on development cooperation, sustainable development and global citizenship education.

Finland’s third EU Presidency period has started on 1 July 2019 and will last until 31 December 2019.
