European Commission Development Education and Awareness Raising

Since August 2020, CliMates has been part of a consortium of associations across Europe with the mission of making young Europeans aware of the intersecting issues of climate change, development issues and gender equality. We are also preparing training actions to support European youth to take action.


This four-year program allows us to set up joint events at the European level and to bring together clear advocacy in each of the member countries of the European Union. Funded by the European Commission, this program is also a great opportunity for CliMates to develop and professionalize its projects.

EC DEAR for CliMates :

  • The first really important budget of CliMates for a 4-years period

  • The first full time employee of the organization

  • An opportunity to develop and gain professionalism

  • An opportunity to join a network of 20 NGOs accross Europe

  • An opportunity to work closer with EU institutions

Our action: Climate action by European citiizens delivers for development

Our goal: EU citizens are committed to and contribute to efforts to tackle climate change, develoment and gender equality in line with Agenda 2030 and the Consensus

Out target: European youth from 15 to 30 years old - actions forecasted in the 27 countries of European Union

How does it work?

The initial budget has been validated by the EC : 280 000 € during 4 years

Yet, this budget is being renegotiated every year, not in terms of amount but in its allocation

You are the project leaders! The EC DEAR budget is being coordinated by CliMates board but has to be used by all our projects to grow!
