Civic Spaces

Civic Spaces is European Civic Forum’s new podcast, where we sit down with those fighting for systemic change in Europe and beyond.

We aim not only to highlight issues and bring attention to shrinking civic space, but also to highlight inspiring stories of successful activism. Each episode focuses on a specific topic.

Episode 1: Strategising for an open civic space in Europe

In our very first episode, we take you behind the scenes of our recent convening of civil society, donors and institutions. On the sides of the event, we chat to Yonous Muhammadi (Greek Forum of Refugees), Julie Arrildt (Global Focus), Benjamin Sourice (VoxPublic) and Tina Divjak (CNVOS). Plus, we sit down with European Civic Forum’s Research and Advocacy Coordinator Giada Negri to find out why we need a strategic approach for an open civic space in Europe.
