The European Cultural Foundation (ECF) was created in 1954 with the vision of a united Europe where citizens feel
proudly European, a place where they can live, express themselves, work and dream freely, in diversity and harmony.
Ever since ECF promotes a European sentiment through developing and supporting cultural initiatives that let us share,
experience and imagine Europe. We believe our mission is as urgent as it was back then as there are still many
challenges which divide Europe, cause polarisation and bring about inequality.

About the role

CrAFt: Creating Actionable Futures: Making climate-neutral cities inclusive, beautiful and sustainable (Horizon

    Policy Support Alliance;
