The European Civil SocietyHouse (ECSH) is an initiative aiming to provide a virtual and physical space of local and national level organizations and citizens to reach and participate at European level decision-making. From its beginning, the ECSH has been very much involved with promotion of the European Citizen’s Initiative as a way to engage citizens into European-level decision-making. While the virtual house already exists at the European and national level one’s are starting to function (i.e. Bulgaria) or partnerships are being established, an effort to establish a physical house is starting to take place also. A process to obtain, renovate and make a physical ECH functional in the Etterbeek district of Brussels is under way.
