Project length: 2020-2023
Implemented by 10 organizations from 8 countries:
- Czech Republic,
- Hungary (2 CSOs),
- Romania (2CSOs),
- Norway (as expert partner).
”Reclaim our Civil Space!” builds on broadening the grassroots basis and constituency of civil society through training and
mobilizing activist groups and movements, facilitating cross-border cooperation and networking, and linking this to the European level by developing together the outlines of a comprehensive European civil society policy.
Thus, activities will be carried out along the 3 objectives and levels:
- National: organizing trainings and workshops, mentoring support particularly to organizations/groups in rural regions (taking into account the specificities of individual countries)
- Regional: holding cross-border workshops and networking meetings (with at least 3 country represented at each)
- European: international conferences (Budapest, Brussels, Prague), developing expert and policy papers.
