We are pleased to invite you to the event: “How do we get to a European Civil Society Strategy?”, organised by Civil Society Development Foundation Romania and its partners on June 28, 2022 (between 9:00 and 13:30) kindly hosted by the EFTA House in Brussels.
Striving to contribute to a coherent and comprehensive civil society strategy, we reached out and invited relevant MEPs, key members of EESC Group III, Commission DGs responsibilities and key Brussels-based CSO umbrella partners.
Civil society and CSOs have been scrutinised and questioned by governments and the public during recent years on their roles and significance in liberal democracies. Several reports and initiatives (i.e CERV Programme, Rule of Law Mechanism, FRA monitoring mechanisms, Conference on the Future of Europe, various reports of EU institutions on the civic space) have increased the awareness on the necessity to protect the civil space.
During the conference, we will:
- look at the status-quo of these initiatives, their interconnection and how can we place them in a wider perspective and
- reflect together on the timing and means to strategically strengthen the civil society in Europe.
We hope to see you there.
