SEUPB inviting regional projects for its Building Positive Relations – Building Community Cohesion through Social Innovation
The Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB) under the EU’s PEACE IV Programme is inviting regional projects for its Building Positive Relations – Building Community Cohesion through Social Innovation to support community-led social innovation across Northern Ireland and the Border Region of Ireland.
1000 new grants and donors
The specific objective of this program is to promote positive relations, characterized by respect, and where cultural diversity is celebrated and people can live, learn and socialise together, free from prejudice, hate and intolerance.
The principle of community led social innovation is based on encouraging individuals and organisations to think bigger and think differently about what is possible. This involves actively seeking and encouraging new opportunities to work in true collaboration with others to have more impact.
