How CISU works

CISU offers a platform for our member organisations to network and exchange experiences. We organise courses and events, offer advisory services, and provide guidance on everything from financial management in projects to organisational development and sustainable rights-based approaches.

CISU manages different pools of funds that provide financial support for development and humanitarian efforts, aiming to create sustainable changes. These funds operate under an impartial grant allocation system.

We also work to engage Danes in global issues. We want to make global awareness a public concern. That's why CISU manages OpEn - the Ministry of Foreign Affairs' Information and Engagement Fund.
