The European Union (EU) allocates considerable financial resources to projects and actions that are related to EU policies and their implementation. This money is used for investments in a broad spectrum of areas, such as sustainable economic development, decent work, research & innovation, education, culture, health and environmental protection. Whereas some funds are allocated to EU Member States, where national or regional authorities implement them, other funds are distributed and managed directly by the European Commission.
This year, the implementation of the new programmes begins. We want to ensure that our achievements during the negotiations on the new programme strategies do actually deploy a change towards more Green EU investments on the level of implementation. With this guide we seek to provide local and regional actors, as well as young people, user-friendly information on how to access EU funding opportunities for your own projects and ideas.
