Major European Networks of Associations joined forces to create Civil Society Europe, a permanent space for horizontal exchanges and a strong voice for paradigm shift to restore and promote the values of equality, solidarity, democracy and inclusiveness among EU Member States and its people.
The press launch was hosted by European Parliament Vice-President Sylvie Guillaume, responsible for citizenship. Jean-Marc Roirant, President of the European Civic Forum, founding member of Civil Society Europe, marked the milestone. To him, CSE will be the missing coordination in the European Civil Society landscape.
“Since the European Year of Citizens 2013, when this mobilisation process started, we learned to overcome our differences and our sectorial approaches, to speak out with a single voice in favour of policy change pushing forward collective interests in a society globally dominated by individual and particular interests.”
