Together, Das Progressive Zentrum, Alliance4Europe and Citizens for Europe are building a community management tool. Find out more about all three organisations:
Das Progressive Zentrum (DPZ) is an independent Berlin think tank founded in 2007. DPZ aims to bring evidence-based knowledge and innovation-oriented policy ideas into the public debate and onto the political agenda, in accordance with the triad “Forethought – Networking – Dispute”. We are convinced that a central key to meeting current socio-political challenges lies in the critical-constructive debate on fundamental questions of the future: How do we as a society want to live together today and in the future? How can genuine social cohesion be achieved at regional, national and European level? What democratic innovations and habitual, cultural and institutional innovations are needed to keep our societies strong?
Alliance4Europe (A4E) is an agile non-profit start-up that brings together pro-Europeans and pro-democratic actors for a more democratic and sustainable Europe, working to foster civic engagement. A4E creates, connects, and coordinates civic initiatives and campaigns, analyses digital intelligence, and activates citizens. The organisation was formed in late 2018 as pro-European organisations and active citizens came together to discuss how to counter rising authoritarianism and set an agenda for a common future in Europe.
Citizens For Europe (CFEU) was initiated in 2010 by a small team of experts from several civil society organisations. For strategic development a Core Team was formed to drive this network further. The Core Team is the decision making body for support and development that helps civil society organisations connect with peers all over Europe. The group comprises of grant makers and grantees who carry the project and collectively decide about any support given. With this setup CFEU became a civil society infrastructure that specialises in 1) networking and thematic exchange for a community of CSOs as well as 2) awarding of seed funding for projects with democratic innovation potential.
