European Civic Forum For a Popular and Civic Ownership of Europe! We are a European network of 100+ NGOs, notably running the #CivicSpaceWatch Member of @EuCivilsociety.

Powering #CivicPride. The European Civic Forum (ECF) is a transnational network that brings together over 100 associations and NGOs across 28 countries in Europe and is actively working to promote civic and popular ownership of Europe. Facing this growing civic disaffection across Europe, it is more critical than ever to foster citizens’ engagement for a collective project and the emergence of a European public space where the role and influence of civil society are fully recognized though the setting up of a genuine European civil dialogue.

🚨 Civic space is shrinking not only in countries deemed to be authoritarian regimes but also in established democracies.

Yesterday, Secretary General Alexandrina Najmowicz Rednic raised the alarm at the European Parliament LIBE Committee Monitoring Group on Fundamental Rights. Najmowicz gave concerning examples of shrinking civic space in Hungary, Poland, France, Slovenia and Greece based on the findings of #CivicSpaceWatch and called for:

👉 A comprehensive approach to rule of law, fundamental rights and democracy
👉 A strategy for civil society that identifies the tools and instruments at the disposal of the EU institutions to address restrictions to civic space

Together with dozens of civic actors we propose 5 key steps:

A bit of our story

The European Civic Forum (ECF) is a transnational network that brings together over 100 associations and NGOs across 27 countries in Europe, actively working on issues such as citizenship education, defence of Human Rights and the advocacy of Democracy.

Our vision of citizenship

Built essentially around an economic dimension, the European project lacks of the pillars enshrined in the Treaties – Solidarity and Democracy – to be able to overcome the wide gap between citizens and European institutions. Associations and NGOs play a crucial role in this civic ownership. Associations provide an ideal environment for debate and the formulation of projects which respond to citizens’ aspirations. They are fulfilling an important function, strengthening the ties in a community life, promoting inclusion and social innovation. Associations also are spokespersons of citizens’ aspirations for equality, solidarity and democracy.

Le 20 février prochain, The Good Lobby propose une demi-journée à Paris à destination des associations et ONGs qui souhaitent se former au plaidoyer. La première partie de la matinée, « the Citizen Lobbying toolkit », sera consacrée aux outils utiles pour mettre en œuvre une stratégie et des campagnes de plaidoyer. La deuxième partie de l’atelier, « How to file a Freedom of Information request », sera quant à elle dédiée au droit d’accès à l’information et vous permettra d’apprendre à rédiger une demande d’accès à l’information, qui permet à n’importe quelle organisation de la société civile d’interagir avec les institutions nationales ou européennes. L’atelier est gratuit pour les associations souhaitant y participer ! Voici le lien d'inscription : https://bit.ly/2HWyyT4 Attention, les différentes interventions se dérouleront en anglais.
