2020 Ariadne Forecast for European Social Change and Human Rights Funders

The Ariadne Forecast is a community created resource that draws on Ariadne’s network of more than 616 funders in 22 countries.


Ariadne participants and other friends of the network were asked six questions about trends in their field for 2020. We collected surveys and interviews from members across Europe and held forecast meetings for funders in Amsterdam, Como, London and Paris to discuss and add to the findings. In the end we estimate that around 176 people have had the chance to contribute to the Forecast. While the meetings and discussions at them were private, the final forecast is publicly available for all, as a reflection on the current direction of the sector.
