Civic initiatives in 10 CEE countries supported under the Local Climate Justice Activism call for proposals


19 civic initiatives from Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia were supported within the Local Climate Justice Activism in Central and Eastern Europe call for proposals of the Open Society Institute – Sofia (OSIS).

A total of 109 proposals were submitted in response to the call for proposals in 2020. An international Selection Committee evaluated and recommended supporting 19 projects in the CEE region. The projects, with duration of up to one year, will be implemented in the period 2021-2022.


The Open Society Institute – Sofia Foundation with the support of Open Society Foundations (OSFs) and in cooperation with the Open Society European Network (OSEN), consisting of civil society organizations in Central and Eastern Europe, launched the call for proposals by civil society organizations seeking to support the inclusion of so far marginalized and excluded groups and communities to address climate justice issues in the countries of Central Eastern Europe. The climate justice perspective links human rights, social justice, and general principles of equality with the transformation of our economies to ensure environmental sustainability.
