INITIATIVES

 

BOOST YOUR SOLIDARITY

 

Here is a non-exhaustive list of initiatives coming from civic actors and movements. Feel free to share them with your friends, contacts and networks. The more we support them, the stronger their impact!

Although they are pursuing different objectives, all the initiatives enlisted here reflect the need for a societal change, where the general interest comes before private ones. All over Europe and in the world, citizens are organising, creating informal groups, founding associations. We aim at providing the largest possible coverage of their commitment to the general interest.

If you are also running an initiative that you would like to promote via this webpage, please let us know. We will be happy to help. Also, you can exchange about the different initiatives, share best practices and organise yourself with other active citizens via our online forum.

YOUR STORIES

In the framework of the 10th of December, we want to create a positive narrative about civic organisations and show their impact on society. In order to create an emotional connection with the citizens, we are collecting positive stories from volunteers/ NGOs/ individuals, who are humans rights defenders and stand up for human rights for all. Also, testimonials about people who have actually been helped by one of your projects are more than welcome.

If you know powerful stories that you think deserve more attention, feel free to contribute. There will be an easy format to follow. Here are three easy tips to follow:

  1. the description of the story should be written in 1st  person (singular or plural according to your needs). If you don’t want to use the story of your organisation, but – for instance – a touching story of someone who have actually been helped by one of your project and you think might be powerful and a good example for the 10th of December you are totally free to decide. Just remember to use first person to show more involvement and humanity
  2. The text should be no longer than 250 words and a minimum of around 200 words
  3. The picture should be taken with a neutral background, avoiding picture in external places, and possibly a white background. If you think of taking a picture outside, it is extremely important to set the background blur (many Samsung smartphones have this option now, but if you cannot do it, please inform us and we will edit it for you).
