The AER member Donegal County Council is urgently seeking partners to participate in a funding bid to the recent DEAR funding call Lot 4 “Global Learning Education and Campaigning and Advocacy Projects led by a local authority”.
Donegal County Council is a local authority in the north west of Ireland and has responsibility for the delivery of a range of public services to a population of some 160,000 citizens. The Council has significant experience of EU projects across a range of programmes, including Interreg A,B,C strands, Peace programmes and more recently participation in the LADDER programme supported by the EU.
The OWLS (Older Women Learning and Sharing) project seeks to deal with issues of migration, gender equality and climate change and to recognise the important role played by older women in society and in development education particularly.
The project will develop a mentoring role for older women in community units across varying cultures within the partner regions and focus on principles of DEAR as they relate to existing communities, both the indigenous and minorities elements of the partner regions.
Donegal County Council is looking for the last partners to complete the consortium, both local Authorities and Civil Society Organisations.
If you are interested to join this project proposal or ask additional information, please contact as soon as possible AER Secretariat (deadline for submitting the project proposal is 21st June).
