We want Swedish people to engage in a society that is environmentally sustainable, just, equal and democratic.
That is why we support projects that communicate about how civil society around the world are working for such a society.
This might be through a podcast about children’s rights; a workshop about climate change in a church; or by visiting a development project through virtual reality.
The projects create knowledge about what we work for. But we do not want it to stop at knowledge – we want people to get involved and contribute. It can mean becoming active in an organisation, spreading knowledge on social media or influencing politicians to make decisions that promote sustainable development.
Only our member organisations can apply for grants for communication projects through our communications program. If your member organisation is interesting in applying, please contact us well before sending us your application.

Rafiki: a communications and education program from Eriks, aimed at educators for children in primary school.
