And the funding goes to: A sustainable Nordic Region


Marta Logina

The NORDBUK grant programme received at total of 43 applications before this year’s third and final deadline. After weeks of deliberation the programme decided to support 12 projects with a total amount of nearly 260 000 €. 

The reason the number of applications were higher than usual is partly because the programme has recently collaborated with the newly established Nordic programme, Generation 2030. NORDBUK will happily support projects that further sustainable development, but the collaboration is providing extra funding to support even more projects that focus on reaching the global sustainability goals.  

This has proven to be a desired idea as half of the twelve projects that received funding are committed to spreading knowledge about the sustainable goals and to contribute in a way so that the Nordic countries will work even closer to reach the goals described in the UN’s Agenda 2030.    

The NORDBUK committee is delighted and will continue this priority in 2019 and 2020. To the children and young people in the Nordic Region who would like to start a collaboration centered on the global goals, you may press here to see the NORDBUK criteria.     

Did your project not receive a funding approval? It does not have to mean that there was anything wrong with your idea. Every year the need for grants exceeds available resources. As a new kind of service, the programme has decided to send feedback to anyone who doesn’t receive funding. The hope is that the applicants will welcome this feedback and that it will be of some use for them when it comes to further development of the idea or to make it easier to get in touch and ask for advice.  

The Nordic Culture Point offers free advice to anyone in the application process, regardless of which programme they have applied for previously or wish to apply for.         

The NORDBUK grant programme is open to all organisations, associations, networks or groups that work with projects in the areas of culture, politics or society, and who either are exclusively run by children and young people or where the approach builds on including children and young people to the highest degree possible. The next deadline is 1st February 2019.
