The newly established fund Civitates has announced its first call focused on encouraging CSOs from EU member states and EFTA countries to come together and create national coalitions to address issues related to the shrinking space for civil society in their country. Civitates aims to strengthen civil society by empowering its actors to respond collectively and more effectively to challenges related to the shrinking space in their country. Through the creation or reinforcement of existing national coalitions, this call is targeted at strengthening their operational capacities and ultimately their ability to advocate for an enabling environment. More information is available here.
