NGOs Building Bridges

About the Project

The project “Russian and Nordic NGOs building bridges” is aimed at restart and development NGOs’ cooperation, engagement of NGOs into networking and launching joint projects. The project will enable to provide an exchange of expertise and best practices of Nordic and Russian NGOs and to involve other stakeholders into NGOs activities.

The partnership circle of the project “Russian and Nordic NGOs building bridges” consists of three Nordic NGOs (Danish Institute for Civil Society “Interfolk”; Finland-Russia Society; Husavik Academic Centre from Iceland and two Russian NGOs (Arkhangelsk Centre of social technologies “Garant” and Pskov Centre for Sustainable Development, that have shared the intention of promoting renewed networks and collaboration between NGOs in Northwest Russia and the Nordic countries.

During the last 3 years the collaboration between NGOs in the north-west of Russia and Nordic countries has been gradually decreasing because of the changes in the political situation and decrease of funding. Currently there is a huge lack of collaboration between Nordic and Russian NGOs, and an urgent need of promoting the cross-border cooperation and preparing joint projects between NGOs and their local partners.
