7500 young people from all over Europe will gather under the theme “Together we can make a change”.

Civil Society Europe will engage with participants on:

Europe: Building and supporting civil society?

What are the conditions for civil society organisations to thrive? How can we respond to restrictions of civil space and fundamental rights occurring at national level in EU and non-EU countries? This interactive workshop will engage you to identify solutions to cur- rent challenges faced by young activists to make their voice heard.

Findings from an online survey on civic space in Europe and national case studies will feed into the discussion.
