Would you like to realise your own ideas? Do you wish to initiate your own project? You are ready to rock, but you just don’t know yet how to get there and realise your idea(s)? Then read this Call for Participants carefully and join us!

Outcomes of Project Café:

  • Project evaluation tools
  • Ideas implementing projects sustainably; drafting follow-up project concepts
  • Internationalisation of projects
  • Identifying organisational and regional challenges supporting volunteers in realising project ideas (drafting first recommendations to SCI/CVS in order to overcome organisational and regional challenges)
