14th Summer Academy 2015

Location: Greece

Dates: TBA soon


Euracademy Association awarded grant from "We are all Citizens" programme

We are delighted to announce that Euracademy Association has been recently been awarded a project grant from the "We are all Citizens" programme, implemented by the Bodossaki Foundation in cooperation with the EEA Grants Office.

The title of the project is Rural NGOs: Catalysts of Social Cohesion and Sustainable Development

As part of the project, Euracademy Association will organise an 8-day Summer Academy (SA) bringing together Greek NGOs active in rural areas to network, exchange experiences with other EU NGOs and receive guidance in order to build further their capacity to contribute to sustainable rural development and social cohesion in their areas. The SA will focus in particular on rural NGOs' role in increasing tolerance and multicultural understanding whilst reducing racism and xenophobia in rural areas.

Prior to the SA, a nationwide survey of rural NGOs will be conducted to identify their needs; and a handbook on capacity building of rural NGOs will be produced as a result of the project activities. A business & communication plan will be worked out to develop the scope and range of Euracademy's activities further.

Further details will be announced as the project develops.


Survey: Knowledge transfer and collaboration between stakeholders in green infrastructure and urban forestry

There is a common belief that the scientific community is disconnected from civil society and the labour market. Even in the sectors of Green Infrastructure (GI) and Urban Forestry (UF), further collaboration among stakeholders is needed – and therefore we want to better understand the actual background and needs of three categories of stakeholders involved in GI and UF: research scientists, policy makers and private professionals.

We would appreciate your help in this endeavour by answering a short questionnaire, it will take about 10 minutes to complete.
