Opening event - Greece: Active Citizens Fund

The Fund Operator invites you to the inaugural event of the Active Citizens Fund program for Greece.

The € 12 million Active Citizens Fund for Greece is funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway as part of the EEA Grants 2014-2021. The programme aims to strengthen civil society and supporting its role in promoting democratic processes, enhancing citizens' participation and defending human rights. The Active Citizens Fund in Greece is operated by the Bodossakis Foundation and SolidarityNow.

The opening event of the Active Citizens Fund programme will take place on Thursday, 21 February 2014 at 16:00 at the Serafio of Athens Municipality (Piraeus and Petrou Rallis, ground floor, exhibition area). There will be live streaming and interpreting in sign language.

In order to allow as many civil society organisations as possible to attend the event, the organisers strongly demand that each organisation is represented by one person only.
