Nordic Culture Point: Seeking Applications for NORDBUK Grant Programme

Deadline: 1 February 2019

Nordic Culture Point is seeking applications for its Nordic Committee for Children and Young People (NORDBUK) grant programme to support children and young people’s own projects and wants to strengthen their organizing skills, influence and participation in political, cultural and social activities. The programme target group is children and young people up to the age of 30.

The Nordic Committee for Children and Young People is the Nordic Council of Ministers’ advisory and coordinating body for issues relating to children and young people. The Nordic Culture Point administers the NORDBUK grant programme on behalf of the Committee.

Funding Information

  • Applicants can apply for grants from € 7 500 – 25 000 €.
  • In addition to the sum applied for, at least 15% of the funding must come from another source and may consist of in-kind financing.
  • The total amount applied from NORDBUK and other similar Nordic institutions may not exceed 85% of their total project costs. Other Nordic organisations include for example the Nordic Culture Fund and NordPlus.

Activities

Applicants can apply for support for projects or networks that consist of cultural, political or social activities where children and young people are actively engaged in the process and are able to have a say in the planning, implementation and evaluation of the project. Project partners should always encourage democratic participation and ensure that the children and young people involved in the project gain greater influence on the project. For example, a project may entail:

  • Either individual or a series of network activities, such as meetings, conferences, workshops, camps, courses or other activities designed to further develop and strengthen partnerships, provide opportunities to exchange experiences and to share resources for advocacy efforts.
  • This can be e.g. processes, campaign or information material, methodology material, reports, digital storytelling or works of art designed to make children and young people more aware of their right to participate and influence.

Eligibility Criteria

Grants are awarded to:

  • organisations, groups, municipalities, institutions, associations and networks.
  • The project must consist of a cooperation between at least three (3) Nordic countries. i.e. three or more of the following countries must be represented in the project group: Denmark, Finland, the Faroe Islands, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and/or the Åland Islands.
  • The project applicant must reside in one of the Nordic countries stated above.
  • The applicant does not have to be young, but must represent a partner that either consists of, or has experience of, involving children and young people.
  • It is also considered particularly important if the project involves cooperation with parties from Greenland, the Faroe Islands, Åland or the North Calotte. In this context, the North Calotte means: the counties of Finnmark, Nordland and Troms in Norway, Norrbotten County in Sweden and the Lappi Region in Finland.
  • In addition to the above, cooperation with Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia and northwest Russia can be included in the application. In this context, northwest Russia means: Archangel Oblast, Kaliningrad Oblast, Leningrad Oblast, Murmansk Oblast, Pskov Oblast, Republic of Karelia and the city of St. Petersburg.
