In a recent tweet, the mighty @monsitaris points to something potentially interesting:
Just out @europeaid call for tenders open to CSOs & LAs, ddl 25/09 & budget of € 77m: “Raising public awareness of development issues and promoting development education in European Union (DEAR)”, focus on #migration #climatechange | #EUdev https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/europeaid/online-services/index.cfm?do=publi.welcome&nbPubliList=15&orderby=upd&orderbyad=Desc&searchtype=RS&aofr=160048
This got me thinking. It looks like a big, unwieldy beast, but maybe – just maybe – we could have the opportunity to “raise awareness of development issues” by actually doing something about them, in ways that – by being open, inclusive, networked and powered by shared knowledge and tech – raise awareness by getting people’s hands dirty with the issues! I see as a possible chance to involve and support our growing network in Africa and the Middle East might be involved, starting from @Yosser, @Dorsaf, @hazem and in general the Ourghema crowd. @zmorda is on her honeymoon, but her too, of course!
@hazem, do you want to take point on this? Read the docs, maybe try to map them onto what we are good at?
