14. Why is the project taking place?NOPLANETB stems on the idea that small actions, which boost a change in people’s life, have a great impact when they demonstrate the benefits produced to a wider public. The idea has been further developed considering that financial support and the related assistance given to small and medium-sized CSOs unfolds their potential to perform advocacy and/or awareness raising initiatives, while promoting long-lasting changes based on evidence at local, regional, national and supra-national levels.This is believed to maximise the impact on the public and the emphasis of the ‘glocalised’ interconnections and the shared global responsibility on climate change risks, on their impacts on development either in the global South, or in European citizens’ own lives. Partners include Fondazione punto.sud (IT), taking the lead because of its experience in EU Programme management (incl. financial support schemes), in capacity development and in promoting accountability; AMI (PT), having a considerable experience in re-granting schemes; finepAkademie (DE) having great skills in lobbying, advocacy & capacity development of CSOs (in environment, too); Hungarian Baptist Aid (HU) having a strong experience in development education thanks to its extensive network; APEL (RO) being very active in DEAR projects; FAMSI (ES), being an association of local authorities.
15. Overall objective of the projectTo contribute to the development of knowledge and critical understanding among EU citizens on global interdependence and of a sense of co-responsibility of European society on climate change

Financial support was provided to the selected small and medium-sized civil society organisations to contribute to contrast climate change through the promotion of sustainable lifestyles. The selected CSOs were supported constantly by NOPLANETB partners, through the helpdesk support, trainings and webinars and monitoring visits, which enhanced efficiency and effectiveness of their actions. Contacts and exchanges among sub-grantees have been encouraged.
