Civitates wants to encourage European civil societies to build on knowledge and work across a range of initiatives that can help identify and advocate for targeted responses to specific problems of the current and future digital environment.
Funding is available for independent organizations that seek to:
Analyse the effect of digitization on the quality of the public discourse in Europe;
Expose issues impacting the quality of public discourse and democratic fabric in Europe; or
Improve the functioning of the digital information ecosystem (role of e.g. the technology platforms, the digital advertising industry, political actors) and its regulatory environment through advocacy initiatives
