We are inviting organisations to submit proposals for projects for People to People programme in Lithuania. 

 

People to People programme

People to People Cultural Engagement Programme Phase II (P2P2) follows People to People Cultural Engagement 2016-2021 Programme (Phase I) in Baltic States. 

P2P2 aims at whole-society to 1) enhance social-cohesion between communities, 2) facilitate community access to culture, civic society activity and education and, 3) improve 21st century skills, especially in relation to critical thinking and disinformation recognition. 

P2P2 is focusing on 4 key areas: access, offers, skills and trust. Gaining access to hard-to-reach communities by providing offers that attract this audience in areas of relevance to them and which they participate in because they see the value of them (education and training, personal skills development, jobs and enterprise, social activism, women and girls empowerment, community development, climate/environment and personal interests e.g. sport, culture). These offers are used to develop skills in individuals that help them to better act as wise digital citizens, critiquing the messages they receive digitally and the agendas behind them (digital citizenship, critical thinking, media literacy). This builds the resilience in the information space. Each offer is used to build trust between communities to give the opportunity to come together and co-learn, co-create and co-deliver benefits for themselves and their communities (especially those activities that address social action and community development).

Outcome Areas

Outcome area 1: Individuals from vulnerable communities have the skills to meaningfully participate in democratic society;

Outcome area 2: Diverse communities work together around common agendas, building trust and positive perspectives and narratives;
