EU Operating Grant

Work plan 2024

The Euro­pean Coun­cil for Stein­er Wal­dorf Edu­ca­tion (ECSWE) is enter­ing its sec­ond year under the frame­work agree­ment, sup­port­ed by EU funds. In 2023, ECSWE assessed mem­ber needs, reveal­ing con­sid­er­able appre­ci­a­tion for its advo­ca­cy work and ways to improve the bet­ter align­ment of our capac­i­ty build­ing efforts with mem­ber pref­er­ences. Addi­tion­al­ly, this grant will serve as a cru­cial resource in devel­op­ing a new sus­tain­able strat­e­gy for our future work.

In our 2024 work plan, we are build­ing on these efforts by deep­en­ing our work in the field of cur­ricu­lum devel­op­ment, tak­ing up sus­tain­abil­i­ty and green edu­ca­tion as a work­ing theme in a ded­i­cat­ed work pack­age, and pro­vid­ing tai­lored capac­i­ty build­ing and struc­tur­al sup­port for our mem­bers in pub­lic affairs, PR, fundrais­ing, and organ­i­sa­tion­al development.

More­over, with the expect­ed changes in the Euro­pean Par­lia­ment and Euro­pean Com­mis­sion fol­low­ing the EU elec­tions in June, ECSWE needs to read­just its advo­ca­cy for the next 5 years. By pro­duc­ing more resources for nation­al-lev­el dis­sem­i­na­tion, ECSWE aims to bet­ter dis­sem­i­nate EU poli­cies and its work at the EU lev­el to nation­al-lev­el audiences.

While they are of course con­nect­ed with our activ­i­ties fund­ed under the oper­at­ing grant, activ­i­ties fund­ed from oth­er EU calls such as the HERMMES project or the UPSWE project, are not addressed on this page. Activ­i­ties in ser­vice of our mem­bers from non-EU coun­tries are also not list­ed here and will be cov­ered sep­a­rate­ly in reports cov­er­ing activ­i­ties paid from our mem­ber­ship fees.
