Fair Energy Transition for All: What Vulnerable People Have to Say : Results of dialogues with over 900 vulnerable citizens in nine European countries

March 1, 2022

The publication presents key findings of focus group research involving more than 900 Europeans in nine countries for the Fair Energy Transition for All (FETA) project. Backed by six leading philanthropic institutions, FETA will use this input to recommend EU and national policies that can secure support across society and, notably, avoid placing a burden on the most vulnerable that would fuel opposition to efforts to protect the planet.

Sustaining Civil Society: Lessons from Five Pooled Funds in Eastern Europe

October 21, 2019

After 1990, US and European foundations and government agencies invested in a series of Partnerships and Trusts to support civil society in Central and Eastern Europe, the Baltics, the Balkans and the Black Sea regions. Analyzing the long-term impact of these investments is crucial, especially as many politicians across these regions increase their anti-civil society rhetoric. Three long-time US foundation staff look back at the legacy and impact of this funding and derive a series of lessons for practitioners seeking to understand how best to sustain civil societies for the long term.

Re-energising Europe: A Package Deal for the EU27

November 1, 2017

The New Pact for Europe (NPE) initiative – launched in 2013 and steered by the King Baudouin Foundation, Bertelsmann Stiftung, Open Society Initiative for Europe and the European Policy Centre, supported by Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Open Estonia Foundation, the BMW Foundation and the Network of European Foundations – aims to rebuild trust through national and transnational dialogue and develop new common ground on the way forward for the European Union. After years of multiple crises, the EU27 should re-energise the European project. This third NPE report, which is the culmination of five years of work reflecting more than 120 national and transnational debates throughout Europe, argues that the EU27 should have the political will and courage to agree on an ambitious but realistic win-win package deal to overcome deadlocks and counter the danger of a more regressive, nationalistic, closed, illiberal and authoritarian Europe, the greatest challenge we are currently facing.
