20.01.2022

Here is the announcement of the future fund for the new program "A year at the border" :

The German-Czech border region plays a key role for mutual relations and thus also for the future fund, as it offers people from both countries the opportunity to get in touch with each other over short distances, to meet each other directly and to learn from each other. Many people and organizations along the border are already actively shaping the German-Czech neighborhood. Nevertheless, we believe that there is still hidden potential for cooperation and partnership to be discovered and used.

On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the German-Czech Declaration, the Future Fund is launching the One Year at the Border program for the year 2022/23 with the aim of strengthening local German-Czech neighborliness and thus contributing to the development of a lively border region. A total of eight Germans and Czechs will be active on both sides of the border in the various border regions: They will sound out and evaluate potential for encounters and cooperation, arrange offers and contacts and help to set up joint projects - wherever German and Czech partners need support, the bilingual enablers will lend a helping hand.
