The “Call for Interest” is opened in order to select the individual or the team to undertake the scoping exercise.

The objective of the study is to identify areas on which the Global Citizens Initiative could focus, in line with the Foundation’s vision to contribute to a more equitable world by preparing the citizens of the future. The study should, at a minimum, identify global challenges or issues that are relevant to future generations, have an international scope (aligned with Agenda 2030 and the SDGs) but with a focus on a specific niche, and take into account the work of other international organisations. 

The selection of the proposals will be undertaken by a committee of experts within the Foundation, taking into account the originality of the programming ideas proposed and their potential impact, the expertise of the individual(s) undertaking the study, the proposed budget and other relevant criteria.

The deadline to receive proposals for the scoping study is Monday 1 April 2019, 23h59 GMT. Proposals can be in English or Portuguese. The study itself should be undertaken during the months of June to October 2019.
