A strong civil society is fundamental for a well-functioning democracy and an inclusive society. In the past few years, there have been some worrying trends across Europe, placing the civic space under pressure, therefore, supporting civil society is more important than ever.
The EEA and Norway Grants are currently running a campaign to raise awareness and spark the conversation about civil society. At the heart of #CivilSocietyStartsHere lies the invitation to think about the values that unite us, and a challenge to take action. At the same time, it offers the opportunity to showcase and celebrate the many civil society projects that are already taking place throughout Europe.
