Call for projects Global and inclusive citizenship 2024

Are you a recognised Belgian civil society organisation or a non-profit organisation and do you want to launch to raise awareness of global citizenship education among young people in Brussels?

Brussels International is launching a new Call for Projects, at the initiative of State Secretary for Development Cooperation and Foreign Trade.


The Brussels-Capital Region wants to contribute to the eradication of poverty around the world and is therefore joining efforts with Belgium and the international community to bring about sustainable development and a fairer world. These efforts are part of the new United Nations framework of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The Brussels-Capital Region is aware of the increasingly important role of regional and local authorities in development cooperation and is keen to help achieve these objectives. The BCR is therefore launching a call for projects, for the sixth consecutive year, to raise people’s awareness about global and inclusive citizenship in the margin of its development cooperation policy.

To build a more equitable, inclusive and sustainable world, this year’s call for projects will focus on the theme of intercultural dialogue. Projects will have to address this theme, which is linked to a number of topical issues such as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, decolonisation, migration, etc.


This call for projects pursues two objectives:

  • To make the North-South inequalities easier to understand for young people in Brussels in order to improve the lives and circumstances of populations in developing countries in particular and in the world in general;
  • To promote actions that have already been implemented and/or are currently being implemented by Brussels stakeholders for the benefit of developing countries in order to highlight the diversity of Brussels solidarity in the world.

Who is eligible?

This call for projects is open to Belgian civil society organisations.
