Our publications are a sustainable way of sharing content and managing knowledge that has been gleaned over the years through our own activities and those of our partners. We published many books (both online and offline) over the years. This section of the Library gives an overview.

We work together with a wide range of partners in wider Europe and participate to many activities and events on issues that fall under our overarching themes.

featured people

We regularly put the spotlight on one individual - a grantee, member of staff, a partner, artists and individuals we work with, and share their stories on our website and through our social media. 

films & videos

We produce and commission a wide range of videos related to our programmes and activities on themes around Europe, culture, the commons, and more. 


articles & essays

We regularly publish opinion pieces, background articles and reflections on recent developments in Europe. 



The foundation has worked with many partners on projects involving comics: we explored New Narratives in Comics in 2012, we brought Reframe, a granted project, to the Philanthropy House in Brussels in 2014, and we partnered with The Cartoon Movement during the 2014 European Elections on the Drawing Citizenship campaign. 


Our dedicated Press Room lets you access all latest press releases and press material, and recent media coverage.
