effe has been invited to take part in a new European network which is implemented by MitOst in cooperation with Stiftung Mercator, Robert Bosch Stiftung and the European Cultural Foundation.


CitizensLab is an opportunity for local actors of change to create a new European network. The aim is to strengthen and connect active citizens from all sectors that are passionate about their local community. They engage in finding innovative solutions to challenges in their neighborhoods – be it as volunteers or in their jobs. 

The network is open to people living in one of the EU member states or Turkey. Citizens involved in local initiatives or organisations, NGOs and representatives of municipalities (policy-makers, local council members or the administration) and national or supra-national organisations as well as social entrepreneurs can become a member. 

The first two CitizensLab meetings will take place in Berlin (June 23-26 2016) and Brussels (March 2017). The kick-off meeting in Berlin will lay the foundation of a network where active citizens can come together and connect. They will exchange knowledge and learn from their peers to strengthen the quality and impact of their local work. This European network can also serve to increase the influence on decision-making processes and policies on different levels.
