The overall goal of the SEED project is to improve psychosocial well-being and healthy development of young children, with an emphasis on those growing up in difficult circumstances such as children on the move, children with a low socio-economic status or children victims or witnesses of domestic violence. We will do so through raising awareness about and measure the psychosocial well-being of children in 5 countries. Based on the findings, we will develop and pilot an innovative continuing development programme to build practitioners capacities to support psychosocial well-being. All these activities will lead to quality improvements in Early Expected results on completion of the project are as follows: 1) Practitioners have the skills and knowledge to promote and nurture young children’s psychosocial development (2,5-6 years). 2) Concrete improvements in quality and inclusivity of ECEC services in 5 EU countries. 3) Important stakeholders (governments, education and care services, NGOs, teacher training institutes and parents) recognize the importance of psychosocial wellbeing of young children and influence policy and practice. 4) Population level data on psychosocial well-being of 5 year old girls and boys are collected and analysed in 5 EU countries. 5) An innovative CPD approach based on ECEC practitioner group reflection is developed and tested and ready to be transferred to other contexts. Paying more attention to young children's feelings and social relationships leads to happier learners who have a better and a more equal chance to fullfil their potential!Childhood Education and Care systems and services in Europe.

The project “Quality vs. Quantity” would be implemented from the 1st of August, 2017 until the 31st of July, 2018. The leading partner of the project “Baltic Regional fund” is from Latvia and the two other partners are “Inovatyvi karta” from Lithuania and “Wise Veer” from Estonia. In a survey done in Latvia from 110 youngsters aged 13 to 25 only 25% stated that they consider their diet healthy, 18% stated that they know how to lead a healthy life, and 53% percent stated that they would like to live healthier. This shows that the majority does not have sufficient knowledge, understanding, ambition or skills to live in a healthy manner. The main topic of the project is healthy lifestyle, about quality over quantity. Activities implemented in this project would raise the question of the physical and spiritual unity in youth. Physical, spiritual, emotional and social development and well-being is the foundation for a harmonious life, thus it is crucial to raise awareness and practice healthy life and lifestyle principles: - Practicing regular physical exercise and outdoor activities - Training and sharpening the mind. Always learning and experiencing. - Being socially active, presently communicating with family, friends and peers. - Maintaining a positive attitude and a sense of control towards your life. - Manage stress - Eat healthy and keep a balanced diet - Observe and listen to your body, watch your weight - Getting enough rest according to your own sleep cycle - Not hesitating to seek medical help if it is needed and regularly checking your health. The activities would be implemented by initiative groups of the three countries, 4 young people and a leader from each country. It is estimated that each country would reach and involve at least 200 young people, with all the activities altogether involving no less that 600 young people, of which 60 would be youngsters with lesser opportunities. Aims of the project: 1) Understand the fundamental principles of the concept of a healthy life and how it affects the life of youngsters and to practice these principles daily. 2) Raise awareness about healthy lifestyle and invite youngsters to live more healthy and to think more of their health. 3) Provide youngsters with safe and appropriate environment to implement their own initiatives and develop personal and professional competences through practicing the peer education method “peer to peer”. 4) Promote the understanding and develop competences for entrepreneurship, including raising awareness and encouraging the principles for social entrepreneurship through healthy lifestyle. 5) Promote the Erasmus+ programme and the opportunities it provides. To reach the aims of the project there will be a succession of activities, public events - flash mobs, presentations, contests, meetings with experts, visiting schools and youth centers, discussions, educational workshops about balanced lifestyle which includes the education for body, mind and emotional condition. The activities would be implemented through means of non-formal education methods “learning to learn”, “learning to be”, “learning to be with others”, “learning by doing”.

The overall objective of the project is that global civil society is mobilised to contribute effectively to global justice and eradication of poverty through global citizenship. Global Citizenship Education (GCE) supports the development of a deep and comprehensive understanding of the interdependent nature of the world and its citizens, the basis on which informed actions, sustainable consumption and coherent policies for a more equal world can be built. To really have a transformative impact, GCE must break out from the circle of educators, involve new stakeholders and be fully recognized as an essential tool also among policy makers (civil servants, politicians and other state and super-state actors). In order for this to happen, the capacity of civil society needs to be developed to find new partners and innovative ways of working. Civil society and other GCE actors also need a space to maintain these partnerships as well as for dissemination of best practices, sharing of information and coordination of joint advocacy efforts for global justice and eradication of poverty. In order to contribute to the overall goal and respond to these needs, the project will have four outcomes. Bridge 47 network: A vibrant global coalition in support of global citizenship is set up with the increased capacity of European global citizenship education CSOs to network with global partners Advocacy at national, EU and global level: The essential role of GCE in delivering the SDGs is reflected in national, European and UN policies and implementation plans Development of partnerships: Global citizenship education is understood and practiced in partnerships between CSOs and researchers, policy makers, private sector, and military/police sectors Capacity development and innovation: Opportunities for European CSOs to develop and use new and innovative approaches for global citizenship education are significantly increased The project Consortium consist of two global networks (CIVICUS and ICAE), three national development education networks (in France, Ireland and Scotland), six national CSO platforms (in Bulgaria, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Slovakia and Slovenia), four organisations active in GCE (in Cyprus, Denmark, Latvia and Serbia), and European research network (EADI).

In Russia, it’s all about spreading power. Corruption and impunity are mortgaging the countries’ possibilities in the near future. In addition, freedom is still limited, and the money needed to improve Russia’s perspectives is being spent to enrich a few. Public institutions are being used to their own advantage and public officials, unwilling to leave the power, have been using (and will continue to use) coercion and violence to remain in the privileged positions.

Women in Russia are victims of domestic violence on a large scale every year. These kind of abuses are considered “normal” in Russian families. The lack of a specific law on domestic violence and the police inaction are the main difficulties to start combating this terrifying violence. Domestic violence is not considered to be a crime against society, since it is treated as a private family matter.

Corruption is the main threat to any country’s democratic development. Ukraine, particularly, is considered one of the countries with high levels of corruption, according to the annual Transparency International’ corruption index. Corruption is a serious issue in this country since it has penetrated all levels of government and public institutions. All formal and informal institutions have even become used to corruption and adapted to it. Therefore, there is a high tolerance for corrupt practices throughout society and it is seen as a normal part of life.

Fulfilling the dreams of older people requires specific support from society and institutions, especially the economic and health sectors. Fulfilling those dreams also requires knowledge about older people’s rights. An EU supported project, that is building capacities for promoting older people’s rights and income security, implemented by the Foundation for Older Persons’ Development and HelpAge International, is helping to fulfil these dreams in Thailand.

In recent decades – and in particular since the end of the cold war – human rights and the related concepts of good governance, democracy and the rule of law have become an integral element of most donors' international development cooperation. The link between human rights and development has been confirmed in a series of international conferences, such as the 1993 World Conference on Human Rights and the 2000 Millennium Summit.
