NETWORK COORDINATION

Together with key partners, Das Progressive Zentrum and Citizens for Europe, we are developing the European Hub for Civic Engagement, an online environment which will be able to address a wide range of civil society needs, from content and knowledge sharing to access to funding, to “incubating”, capacity building, and partner matching for new ideas and projects, sharing of civic tech tools, and coordination on advocacy and public campaigning. Online coordination via the platform will be matched with human engagement and active coordination, creating essential long term added value for an ever expanding network, pushing to open up civil society space.

DIGITAL INTELLIGENCE

Working together with specialised analysts, we are working to build up the capacity of the Social Media Intelligence Unit (SMIU) to collect and analyse data across Europe. The platform will provide regular briefings to civil society users, tracking disinformation and hate-speech, aiming to develop a predictive model of its spread, and enabling users to set a positive narrative in advance. Individual users and campaigners will also be able to use the data to be able to improve their own social media effectiveness and reach and use the system in their day to day work.
