AWARD has been launched in October 2011 and stands for "AWAreness Raising and education for Development and culture". The project is devoted to raising awareness and sensitizing European development actors and European development education bodies to the crucial role that the cultural sector and cultural exchanges play in international development.
It will provide guidelines, recommendations, trainings, tools and indicators in order for actors to include specific “cultural and development” perspectives in their international, decentralised cooperation and city diplomacy programmes. ENTP is leading the project, the other partners are : the Consell Comarcal del Alt Empordà in Spain, the city of Almere in the Netherlands, Harlow City Council in the UK, the Peace Institute located in Ljubljana, and the city of Ljubljana.
