Civic tech to support European civil society in times of crisis

Online Dialogue | 6 May 2020, 3.30 - 5.00 pm (CEST)


Join our online dialogue to discuss strategies to strengthen European civil society during the COVID-19 crisis. This event is organised by the European Policy Centre’s Connecting Europe project and the European Hub for Civic Engagement, a project of Das Progressive Zentrum, together with Alliance4Europe and Citizens For Europe.


In the light of the COVID-19 crisis, civil society is likely to face an even more challenging environment. At this online event, we will explore potential measures the EU could take to support a diverse and sustainable civil society across Europe and how digital technologies – that have gained so much traction during the crisis – can effectively strengthen democracy. Together with representatives of the EU institutions and co-builders from the European Hub for Civic Engagement, the discussion will focus on identifying concrete solutions.
