ViabilityNet 3.0



„Grow (with) your community“

Local community leaders’ program

(Author: )

Via Foundation, based in Prague, is launching a call for applications for ViabilityNet 3.0, a program that will offer community leaders space to learn, reflect, connect and grow together and funding for projects that focus on empowering their own communities. ViabilityNet 3.0 is focused primarily on the Central and Eastern European region (CEE), with secondary reach into Western Europe.
Via Foundation is looking for 22 participants who are working in their communities for an explicitly formulated social change which is intended to benefit the community as a whole. Participants must be at least 27 years of age. The primary language of the program will be English and the duration of the program will be from August 2017 through August 2018.
ViabilityNet 3.0 is a three-year program that includes four components:
  • Local community leaders’ program – a year-long program for individuals
  • Network of partner organizations in the CEE region
  • Alumni network
  • Cooperation with the academic sector
We are currently opening two components.

Alumni network

The Alumni network will connect alumni from both the ViabilityNet 2.0 program (2014-2016) and the ViabilityNet 3.0 program (2017-2019).
The long-term aims of the Alumni network include to:
1) Support the sustainability of the program’s impact in local communities in the CEE region
2) Support alumni in spreading the change in other communities
3) Strengthen the know-how of Via Foundation in regard to more effective support of local communities
The first meeting of the network is planned for April 2017.
