The Public Diplomacy Division works to promote security cooperation through a variety of programmes in NATO and partner countries and contributes to a continuous process of international security debate and policy creation. One of the goals of NATO's Public Diplomacy Division (PDD) is to foster awareness and understanding of NATO, its values, policies, and activities, and to increase the level of debate on peace, security, and defence related issues. To this end, the Division conducts and supports a wide range of public diplomacy activities, including conferences, seminars, and other outreach projects, designed to engage with audiences around the world.
Co-sponsorship for conferences, seminars, workshops and other relevant public diplomacy activities, such as digital, multimedia or online projects, on peace and security-related issues is available in the form of discretionary grants from NATO's Public Diplomacy Division. Typically, recipients of these grants are Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), universities, think tanks, and other pertinent civil society organisations.

Decisions on whether to support a project, as well as the level of sponsorship awarded, are made at the discretion of NATO authorities. Further details on co-sponsorship grants are available in Grant Application Guidelines.
