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.

The European Hub for Civic Engagement (EHCE) uses tech-driven solutions to network and strengthen European civil society. The Hub envisions a digital platform that allows civil society actors across Europe to create community, share ideas and resources, and rethink funding opportunities.

They aim to strengthen European civil society after being developed in a series of workshops in Gdansk, Lisbon and a Hackathon in Tallinn. 

In addition to an insightful keynote by Dr. Prof. Donatella della Porta, there will be an interactive debate with young European changemakers, called
