International Solidarity

In addition to its decentralised cooperation partnerships, the City of Strasbourg also provides support for international solidarity actions undertaken by locally-based associations.

Strasbourg is a firm proponent of solidarity and openness and works tirelessly to promote the values of justice and democracy, human dignity and respect for Human Rights. In 2003, the City set up a yearly system for providing financial support for international solidarity initiatives in developing countries, undertaken by Strasbourg-based associations.

Examples of projects that have received funding from the City of Strasbourg include a school in Vietnam and in Togo, school canteens in Burkina Faso, running water and solar panels for producing electricity in Guinea, to mention but a few.

The call for projects is generally opened in January and closed in April. Further information concerning applications for funding can be found opposite.
