Open call for proposal

Within the frame of the new developed “SCHOOL GARDEN PROJECT” EuroNatur intends to support the establishment of school gardens in the European Stork Villages (ESV) and their NGO partners by a small grant scheme.

A deeper understanding of ecological interrelationships and a sustainable lifestyle begins in childhood. As charismatic birds, storks are particularly well suited as ambassadors. (Here in the picture: Stork Festival in the North Macedonian Stork Village Češinovo-Obleševo) © Andi Götz

All European Stork Villages and their partner organizations are invited to participate in this Call for Proposal with the establishment of a school garden. The projects must include the preparation and implementation of environmental education content, the creation of a school garden and its maintenance, a topic related excursion (e.g. extensive livestock farming) with a partner organization as well as the organisation and implementation of a public event (e.g. opening ceremony, harvest festival, etc.) to raise awareness. Additional contents can be various.

The total project budget should not exceed 3,500 €. The projects should start from 1 November 2020 onwards, have a maximum duration of 12 months and be completed by 31 October 2021. The project proposal and budget must be based on the templates provided with this call and need to be submitted until 04 September 2020 via e-mail to ilka.beermann(at)euronatur.org. EuroNatur will confirm the receipt of the proposal and will notify whether it is complete or whether additional information is required.
