At THE CIVICS Innovation Hub, we strive to empower both citizens and civic educators to address the complex challenges of our time. Our main focus is to bolster the democratic competencies, self-efficacy, and resilience of citizens across Europe, enabling them to actively participate in shaping the future of their societies.
To achieve our mission, we focus on five key areas of work:
LEARNING & EXCHANGE is about curating innovative formats and spaces for citizens, civic educators, and experts from diverse fields to learn, exchange ideas and experiences, and grow together.
Through MAPPING & RESEARCH, we seek to gain a deeper understanding of civic education at both the national and pan-European levels.
NETWORKING & ADVOCACY are crucial for elevating civic education in Europe. We build relationships with key stakeholders and advocate for policies that promote democratic participation.
#OURFUTUREEUROPE is dedicated to gathering ideas and perspectives from across Europe to develop a shared vision of how we want to live together on the continent.
The PILOTING, INNOVATION & SCALING pillar focuses on developing and implementing pilots that empower diverse citizens to tackle complex challenges.
Under each pillar we are implementing different projects.
