"Reading the material you send me it still remains vague for me what the project is exactly
Yes, there is alot of space for input for interested people. Some of the themes that seem to be emerging are:
"Where do you get your funding from?"
From many, many sources - including government ministries and private foundations. Often just in small amounts. We have never, however, solicited funds from any corporate sources. The money for this particular project is in a larger sum and it is primarily from the Commission of the European Union, PHARE/TACIS programme.
"Is there travel money available for women from the post-communist region in your
Yes, in the framework of the activities of the project. For example to attend one of the regional exposure meetings, or the larger Young Women and Democracy Conference in Greece, the Caucus or the Skills training in Amsterdam.
"What other groups are you working with?"
We are quite an extensive network actually. Our focus to date is on women activists within the environment and development movements. So many of our contacts are environmental organisations generally and we communicate with some active women within those organisations. Conversely we are also linking up with individuals and organisations interested in environment and development issues who are coming from the women's movement.
