About the project

The “Reclaim our Civil Space!” project builds on broadening the grassroots basis and constituency of civil society through training and mobilising activist groups and movements, facilitating cross-border cooperation and networking, and linking this to the European level by developing together the outlines of a comprehensive European civil society policy.

This project is implemented with 9 partners in 7 Central European countries and benefits from a 1,8 million EUR grant from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA and Norway Grants Fund for Regional Cooperation.
