European Hub for Civic Engagement: Meet-Up 2020
During the Meet-up 2020, Das Progressive Zentrum and the European Hub for Civic Engagement (EHCE) will present 4 prototypes for an online platform to strengthen and interconnect European civil society.
Together with members from civil society, programmers, and designers, Das Progressive Zentrum hosted a hackathon in Tallinn to draft concrete ideas for the European Hub for Civic Engagement’s (EHCE) digital platform. The result of the session were four different prototypes that seek to address the main challenges faced by European civil society today.
In September 2019, Das Progressive Zentrum hosted two workshops in Gdansk and Lisbon with 42 civil society representatives from 23 European countries. The workshops are part of the pilot project ‘European Hub for Civic Engagement’ (EHCE), which aims to create a platform for the exchange of ideas, knowledge and best practices at the intersection of civil society, digital technology, and politics. During the workshops, we developed concrete features that such a platform could provide to further civic engagement and transnational collaboration.
We’re proud and excited to start our project of a pan-European platform for civil society and Civic-Tech with our partners. Learn more about the EHCE, the ideas and organisations behind it, and the events that are planned.
