The Swiss Cooperation Agency in Serbia issued a call for a new support program for civil society in Serbia: "For active civil society - together (ACT)". 

The Swiss Government will, through the program, support the development of civil society in Serbia in order to contribute to civil society and the active involvement of citizens in decision-making over a period of eight years (two stages of four years), with a total budget of 11,000,000 Swiss francs.

The mandate of the first phase is divided into two parts: the first part starts in the first quarter of 2019 and is dedicated to the preparation of the program document, while the second part consists of a four-year implementation starting in the second half of 2019. The estimated budget for this phase is 5,500,000 Swiss francs.  

The aim of the call is the selection of the consortium for the implementation of the Program, which will be composed of international and local implementers, while the international leader will be in charge. The consortium must submit a concept for further development of civil society in Serbia.

The deadline for submitting proposals is October 26, 2018.
