  • Kurz: Bridges of Cooperation: Civil Society and Public Administration Together for a Stable Civil Society

    The project responds directly to the current situation in the civilian sector in Albania: an insufficient level of cooperation between non-governmental organizations and local authorities and the associated low level of participation in local decision-making. It is precisely this that is necessary for the ability of organizations to promote the interests of the citizens they represent, and to maintain a transparent and healthy environment in which no corrupt practices are present. However, the Monitoring Matrix Report on Enabling Environment of CSOs in Albania shows that the CSOs in Albania have insufficient capacity to participate in and influence development processes effectively in the country.

  • Kurz: Build Solid Ground Project

    Fair and decent housing in sustainable communities (covered mainly by SDG 11) is the main driving force of this joint project. Build Solid Ground Project is an EU-funded project which is being carried out by 14 partners in 7 countries. Program countries include Bulgaria, Hungary, Ireland, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and the UK. Our niche is to focus on education and awareness-raising activities in the areas of preventing youth radicalization, migration, interfaith, interethnic and multicultural dialogue, and Sustainable Development Goals (Agenda 2030).

  • Kurz: CEE Prevent Net

    In light of the increasing level of intolerance, discrimination, and group hatred in Europe, the CEE Prevent Net project aims at safeguarding young people by strengthening their resilience towards these phenomena and their skills to contribute to a peaceful and democratic society.

  • Kurz: European Network for Non-Violence and Dialogue - ENND

    The project has connected initiatives around Europe that strive to depolarize society and develop techniques of dialogue among various social groups. We have connected people and organizations working at a grassroots level to ease tensions on value-based issues. How does one discuss refugees, LGBTI, Roma, or national identities in Europe? We are collecting the best practices and best people, who are always trying.

  • Kurz: Local Government for the People, Ukraine - Slovakia

    The aim of the three projects was to bring Slovak experience and know-how to Ukrainian cities and villages. We trained mayors, city council members, clerks, local NGO representatives, school directors, and other community members in methods of civic participation. We trained trainers, published a textbook in Ukrainian, and provided internships and mini-grants for Ukrainian community leaders to support decentralization and local democracy in our neighboring country. This happened in the 2014-2018 time period.

  • Kurz: Project Grey

    In online debates, extreme opinions for or against are often the loudest. Think about discussions about refugees and integration. But between these small groups of black-and-white thinkers there is a large group with a variety of opinions. Project Grey wants to reinforce these societal voices and, thereby, tackle polarization as well as the processes of radicalization that arise from it.

  • Kurz: Youth with(out) Borders

    Within this project we have developed a teaching tool for teachers - a role play showing the situation on the border when traveling to the West before 1989. The aim was to provide teachers with an interactive method of teaching the history of the Velvet Revolution and discussing issues of human rights and liberty. We have trained 60 teachers around Slovakia, who have used the tool in teaching their students.
