What are the conditions for civil society organisations to thrive? How can we respond to restrictions of civic space and fundamental rights occurring at national level in EU and non-EU countries?

This  workshop, organised by Civil Society Europe, focused on challenges faced by young activists to make their voice heard and reaction to findings from an online survey on civic space in Europe.
