euclid network Projects
Euclid Network works in three main areas for a stronger European third sector:
- Cross Border Leadership
Euclid Network is developing a 21st Century leadership programme to meet the needs of today’s third sector leaders. Euclid Network is working to increase knowledge sharing between the US and Europe, and has a partnership with Harvard University offering executive education courses.
- Good Governance
Euclid Network’s good third sector governance project was launched in Paris in November 2008. The project aims to identify principles of good governance across Europe and develop tools of implementation.
- Income Generation
Euclid Network is campaigning for the reform of European Union (EU) funding procedures and is in talks with the European Commission and other European networks to help change EU funding regulation in the next EU budget, starting in 2014. Euclid Network is heavily involved with the campaign for a European Social Investment Bank.
Euclid's other projects are divided by region:
- The Northern Hub
Euclid Network’s Northern Hub was launched on 30 June 2009 in Gotland, Sweden. The Northern Hub will connect leaders from the Baltic Republics and former Soviet Union countries, as well as develop regional connections. In addition it will facilitate regional job-shadowing exchanges.
- The Western Balkans
Euclid Network is running a British Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) funded project Building from Within: Reuniting Europe by Strengthening and Connecting its third sector in Albania, Kosovo and Montenegro with plans to scale-up the project's activities in 2009-2011.
- Former Soviet Union
Euclid Network have applied to the United Nations Democracy Fund for funding to replicate its work in the Balkans, Ukraine, Moldova and Belarus.
Euclid Network have also applied to the Anna-Lindh Foundation to replicate work across the Euro-Med region including Egypt, Turkey, Israel, Jordan and Lebanon. The process will begin with a two-day event that will highlight the specific leadership needs of civil society leaders in the region.
