Adessium Foundation aspires to a society that encourages people to live in harmony with each other and with their environment. They work to achieve a balanced society characterised by integrity, a balance between people and nature and social harmony. Adessium Foundation does this by selecting receiving organizations that target subjects of social importance. These grantees strive to effect lasting positive change in society and Adessium supports them to do so. Adessium supports organisations in the Netherlands and initiatives targeting the European community and the factors that affect it. In addition to financial contributions, Adessium Foundation provides organizational support focused on strengthening grantees’ capacity.
Following an evaluation undertaken by ODS, Adessium contracted us to organise a joint workshop between Reporters Without Borders and Adessium Foundation. Amongst other things, this involved compiling the matrix of evaluation recommendations for improvement from and around the World Press Freedom Index; advising participants on setting conditions for success and collaborating with participants to organise the workshop. Through the workshop, we developed a concrete workplan between Adessium and Reporters Without Borders and built-in a progress assessment method.
