European Hub for Civic Engagement

New Project started

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.

Towards a pan-European civil society

The European Hub for Civic Engagement is envisioned as a platform where European civil society and its Civic-Tech community connect.

Together, we will develop digital and analog strategies to collaborate more effectively as we work towards a pan-European civil society.

Within a one-year pilot phase, we seek to analyse concrete challenges and opportunities for civil society collaboration by hosting workshops and a conference in Gdansk, Lisbon, Tallinn and Berlin.
