  • Signature AC EDEV kleinOn 29 January CSI Lëtzebuerg signed a new framework agreement on global education with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The agreement, which will run from 2015 to 2017, covers numerous activities aimed at enhancing the awareness of children in Luxembourg to the subjects of education and poverty in the world. The cost of implementing the activities and paying staff amounts to a total of €253 642 over the three years. Under the agreement the Ministry is committed to  covering 80% of these costs, i.e. €202 913. The remaining 20%, i.e. €50 729, will be financed from donations. We therefore welcome donations not only for our education projects overseas, but also for our activities to promote global education.  

    You can find further information under "CSI in Luxembourg". Our website will soon include a description of all activities embraced by the framework agreement.

  • 2015 is a special year for development. For the first time a European thematic year is being dedicated to overseas relations and Europe’s role in the world. Could there ever be a better time for development organisations to draw attention to their contribution to the battle against world poverty and convince Europe’s citizens to support their ideas?

    This year also sees the deadline for achieving the Millennium Development Goals agreed in the year 2000. The international community will take stock of the progress made and, we hope, also admit that some of these goals, regrettably, have not been reached. At the same time it will devise a new global framework for tackling poverty and promoting sustainable development.

    Between now and December, as part of the European Year for Development (EYD), events centred on the subject of development will be taking place in all EU Member States. In Luxembourg, the EYD was officially launched on 14 January in the presence of the Development Minister Romain Schneider, the EYD Goodwill Ambassador Ben Fayot, representatives of various NGOs and a large number of schoolchildren.

    You can find a list of all events planned in connection with the  EYD (in French) at: http://www.luxembourg.public.lu/catalogue/actualites/2015/01-12-developpement.pdf
