DEAR Fair - Brussels 2015

From
to

A 2-day showcase of the ongoing Development Education and Awareness Raising projects took place in Brussels, from 22nd to 23rd October.

The DEAR Fair forms part of a developing programme of networking, sharing learning and increasing the visibility of the European Commission’s DEAR Programme.

In the framework of the European Year for Development 2015 the DEAR Fair enables the EC funded DEAR projects to exhibit their work, network with other projects, exchange ideas and discuss issues that are relevant to the development and implementation of development education and awareness raising activities in the European Union.

This was the first time that a DEAR Fair was organised. Participants and visitors - circa 200 - came mostly from CSOs and Local Authories implementing DEAR projects and from within the European Commission.

It is the intention that the DEAR Fair 2017 will be open to a wider public - information will be shared here at Capacity4Dev soon.
