Make Europe Great campaign started in 2018, promoted by a vast network of civic associations and movements mobilised by the European Civic Forum. It comes at a time when the belief in the ability of the European project to ensure collective well-being has been seriously fractured and undermined by a decade of crisis. EU policies do no longer properly address social needs and populist responses by nationalist, xenophobic and authoritarian forces.
Make Europea Great for All campaign wants to engage a wide network of civic organisations and movements, local communities, human rights defenders, journalists, trade unions and businesses who share our values in a two-years pan-European process of defining what should the Future of Europe look like. The MEGA campaign will provide an open and democratic space to think collectively upon these challenges and reclaim a democratic, just and inclusive way out of this deadlock by:
# putting democracy and civic participation at the core of the European debate
# raising awareness about the role of civil society organisations and movements in democratic processes and in society
Together will all those who wish to join us in this endeavor, we will draw up our wish list of actions the EU institutions need to undertake, we will formulate claims to future candidates running for a term in the next European elections, we will more generally feed into the public space with proposals for more democracy, solidarity, equality, inclusiveness.
