Request for Proposal: Organization of Activities for "Israel’s Liberal Voice"
Brief Project Overview:
The Jerusalem office of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom (FNF Jerusalem) is looking for a service provider delivering the services of strategic planning, content and event production, marketing and branding and community building and management for its alumni network “Israel’s Liberal Voice” (ILV). The service provider needs to promote the network to a growing audience, through interesting activities and programs such as a podcast series, organizing and moderating discussions for the existing network, the same as events for a group of young applicants and a weekend seminar.
Who we are
With a unique Israeli-Palestinian team FNF Jerusalem aims to be a platform of innovation for enhancing freedom in society, strengthening dialogue with the EU and contribute to the advancement of Israeli-Palestinian dialogue leading towards peace. Together with our partners, we want to strengthen liberal values like the rule of law and democracy, the respect of human dignity with civil and human rights, market economy principles and entrepreneurship and a democratic culture of tolerance and pluralism.
Project Goals and Target Audience
Having started as an Alumni Network of FNF in 2020/2021, and having reached out to additional liberal audiences in 2022, ILV in 2023 aims to continue to grow into a nonpartisan platform for liberals from different affiliations debating liberal values and contemporary political developments in Israel. For this purpose, debates on liberal values and policies should reach wider audiences through the production of a liberal podcast series, public discussions on contemporary developments through a liberal values lens and through a “Debating Liberalism” program, which aims bringing new young applicants into the network. A Weekend seminar should bring together all the above, plus Israeli partners of FNF.
Scope of Work and Deliverables
We need a service provider that can design, coordinate, produce and moderate five public discussion evenings on important political issues debated through the liberal values lens, six sessions of a “Debating Liberalism” program bringing together young applicants, plan, coordinate and organize one weekend seminar (around 80 participants) bringing together Alumni and “newcomers” and FNF partners together in the last Quarter of 2023. Additionally the service provider needs to produce a podcast series with 10 episodes discussing liberal values.
The service should include reporting on the events as well as community building for the network during the year.
