We are happy to share the announcement from our partners at the European Cultural Foundation of the 2023 edition of the Europe Challenge Call. This offers a great opportunity to work with peers across Europe to bring together ideas and creative solutions.

This is the third edition of the Challenge, which aims to bring together a network of libraries across Europe to share insights on how to address contemporary challenges.

In particular, it provides libraries and communities with the opportunity to:

  • Network and exchange with libraries and communities from across all of Europe;
  • Participate in an international learning programme (including paid travel opportunities);
  • Receive funding of up to EUR 10.000 (optional) to address urgent democratic, social and environmental challenges in their local communities.

The call is open from 5 September 2023 to 16 October 2023, at 9am CEST. You can find out more on the Europe Challenge website, which contains frequently asked questions, a press release and other key materials. There is also the possibility to join an online question and answer session on Facebook on 19 September at 3pm CEST.
