Europe has proven itself successfully as a peace and prosperity project in the context of integration into the European Union, but key initiatives remain undeveloped. In contrast, over the past years we are witnessing the questioning of the European project as a whole. To gain back trust in Europe, a further democratisation and structural reform of the European Union is necessary. A Europe of citizens with participative opportunities for civil society is still in the sack lane. However, this existential crisis in Europe has lead to a strong civil society support reflex for the European project. Numerous initiatives are looking for and give the EU new impulses.
In view of the European Elections 2019, the European Civic Forum (ECF) has launched the Europe-wide Campaign #MEGA. The National Network for Civil Society (Bundesnetzwerk Bürgerschaftliches Engagement – BBE) has joined this campaign as national partner in Germany. #MEGA 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.
In March 2019, prior to the European Elections, the Berlin Conference shall bring together outstanding voices of civil society on the future development of Europe, such as the basic understanding of European values and democratic procedures, the future of civil dialogue in Europe, the role of social citizenship-rights in the context of growing social inequality and the questioned importance of human rights. The aim is to present an all-European anthology of civil society visions and concrete approaches for the future of the European project.

Be active, be smart! Come and join us and share new ideas for Europe in Torino!
In the past year, the Y Vote project has aimed to encourage young people to make informed choices at the European Parliament elections while increasing their knowledge about topics that are relevant for young Europeans. To reach this goal, seven conventions, corresponding to the topics of the EU Youth Agenda, have been organised. As a participant, you will learn about the functioning of the EU and review the recommendations created in previous conventions.
What will follow is an event which will focus on self development workshops for citizenship and exchanges between you and other participants aimed at making you more aware of the variety of information that people receive and widen your spectrum. You will be able to see and discuss these interesting suggestions created by our previous participants as well as leave your own personal mark in our campaign.

International Civil Society Week (ICSW) is a global gathering for civil society to connect, debate
International Civil Society Week (ICSW) is a global gathering for civil society to connect, debate and create shared solutions. Through a ‘partnered’ approach, organisations pool their resources to convene a diverse international group of civil society leaders to share ideas, catalyse positive social change, exchange tools that enhance citizen action, and celebrate people power. Each ICSW explores a specific theme in-depth.
From 6 to 12 April 2019, CIVICUS and Civic Initiatives will co-host ICSW 2019 in Serbia. The event will begin with a two-day (6-7 April) Youth Assembly for ICSW delegates in Novi Sad, the European Youth Capital for 2019, before moving to Belgrade for the main event (8-11 April).
This year’s theme – ‘The Power of Togetherness’ – explores ways that people and organisations around the world are working together to unlock the potential of collective action. The ICSW 2019 programme will focus on three interrelated tracks.
- Bridges event sessions will explore how the current regional and global civil society context is changing, and connect participants and strengthen collaboration.
- Streets event sessions will look at ways to build constituencies and deepen the skill sets needed for successful civic action.
- Stairs event sessions seek to identify ways to build and sustain collective impact, and connect local and global efforts.

The world is facing major ecological, social, and economic challenges. Complex issues manifest themselves more prominently: urgent, challenging, alarming. Everyone is needed to solve them. Cities play a crucial role in this. Apparently, they have something special. Cities have the ultimate mix of competing and collaborating, of criticism and optimism, of deep thinking and just doing.
That’s why cities move faster than the rest of the world. The Amsterdam Metropolitan Area is the combination of cities where residents, knowledge institutions, businesses, and government easily connect. Cities where traditionally power and influence include rather than divide. We celebrate and accelerate this with WeMakeThe.City, the annual international festival that makes cities better.
We mobilise everyone who lives, resides or works in cities. The festival is a celebration with one clear objective: better cities of, for, and by all! WeMakeThe.City is many things; an invitation, a manifest, a stage, a living lab, a coalition, a focus point, and a new starting point for the next year.
WeMakeThe.City is the festival that makes cities better.
