Type of project: Civic Power: Protecting and Expanding Civic Space in Europe. With this call Civitates aims to build the readiness and power of civil society in the selected European Union countries to protect and expand civic and democratic space, particularly at key social and political moments. Civitates seeks to support civil society to anticipate transformative moments which present opportunities and threats for civic space and enable it to develop and implement strategies to address these. Civitates sees a need to support civil society to build the capabilities needed to meet such opportunities. This can help broader civil society to understand the emerging threats to their space but also enable coalitions in countries where that threat has already clearly manifested to prepare for social and political events that help them to push back against the trend.
Location: Slovakia, Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, and France
Eligibility: Civil society organisations registered in aforementioned countries. Civitates would be looking to support at least one anchor group in each country to lead this work.
Grant size: Flexible, core support up to 120,000 EUR over two years.
Closing date: 18 August
