Initiatives

Our work

Since inception, EED has supported over 600 initiatives aimed at promoting democracy in the EU neighbourhood and beyond. This database provides an insight into the work of EED partners over the years. However, due to the sensitive nature of certain initiatives and personal security risks facing some grantees in the restrictive environments where they operate, not all initiatives are listed in the database.

  • Termokiss

    Country: Kosovo

    In summer of 2016, a group of young Kosovan artists gathered 45 volunteers to refurbish an abandoned warehouse on the outskirts of Prishtina, once belonging to Termokos, a public heating company in Kosovo. With the aim of creating a non-commercial social space for Kosovar youth, they used the space to create the first community-run center in Kosovo named Termokiss. Since its inception, the concept of the space has evolved, shaped by the ideas of the youth who frequent it. Through art exhibitions, movie screenings, cultural events, concerts, charity events and lectures, Termokiss has created a rare space for Kosvar youth to convene and be civically engaged . With EED’s support, Termokiss are refurbishing their space to better accommodate their activities.
