NORDBUK is becoming Norden 0–30
The name of the NORDBUK funding programme is changing to Norden 0–30. The programme supports projects by and for children and young people with the aim of strengthening their organisation, influence, and participation in political, cultural, and social activities.
With the change of name, the Nordic Committee for Children and Young People (NORDBUK), which is responsible for the programme, wants to ensure that the target group and purpose of the programme is made clearer.
“The committee feels it is necessary to change the name ’NORDBUK’, which is somewhat cryptic, and thus strengthen the link to the age range of the people that the programme is designed for. The name underpins the fact that even the very youngest people in the Nordic Region are covered by the programme’s funding activities,” says Alfiero Zanotto, advisor for the Norden 0–30 funding programme.
Although those over the age of 30 can be involved in the projects that receive funding, the project manager must be under 30.
The first round of applications in 2020 will kick off on 2 January. Before and during this round, there will be a social media campaign in five of the Nordic languages to raise awareness of the change of name.
