European Civic Academy

The European Civic Academy (ECA) is an annual meeting between academic and research communities and civic activists of leading NGOs. Its future is much more ambitious. The ECA aims at developing manifold initiatives relying on a strong partnership between the academic and the research world and civil society organisations (CSOs) that act for making the access to fundamental rights effective for all and defend a democracy reinforcing inclusive civic spaces.

The 2020 edition of the European Civic Academy aims to be a first step of a continuous process engaging civil society and academics to analyse and discuss crucial issues civil society is tackling in Europe. One of the key challenges will be to rebuild trust in democracy. To have equality, solidarity, inclusiveness as the pillar of what our societies aim at. The ECA will provide CSO leaders and academics with an opportunity to exchange and gain key insights into EU developments. It will also give concrete tools on how to address them. The objective is to reinforce resilience and develop strengths within civil society.

Join us in Zagreb, Croatia on 30 June and 1 July 2020. The programme will be regularly updated and showed on this page.
