Form to request Council of Europe Secretary General's patronage

The Secretary General's patronage is non-material support which may be granted to any non-profit event which has a European dimension and is of clear political importance to the Council of Europe's activities or objectives. A limited number of events will be granted the Secretary General's patronage each year. No financial undertaking is linked to the granting of patronage, as the Council of Europe has no budgetary resources beyond those which are used to implement its intergovernmental work programme.

Requests must be submitted no later than 3 months before the event.
