On 26 February 2018 UNESCO launched a new initiative with cultural entrepreneur and philanthropist Sabrina Ho: “U40 Empowered: Women entrepreneurs powering the digital creative industries”.
This initiative aims at supporting projects from national and international non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that promote young female cultural entrepreneurs working in the digital creative industries. It is designed to increase opportunities for women under 40 to access funding, infrastructure, equipment and co-production opportunities in the digital creative industries.
NGOs from eligible countries are allowed to apply to this call, and the maximum amount that can be requested is 100,000 USD. For more information, click on the the link below.
This platform is part of the Axis 1 "Strengthening the capacities of equality actors" of the Priority Solidarity Fund "Women for the future in the Mediterranean" funded by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and led by the European Institute of the Mediterranean, in the framework of the project “Developing Women's Empowerment” labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean.
