Forty European civil society networks, including EUCIS-LLL, supported the creation of Civil Society Europe on 16 December 2014 in Rome. The launch of Civil Society Europe took place on 3 February in the European Parliament. Civil Society Europe will work towards regenerating the European project around the shared values of Equality, Solidarity, Inclusiveness and Democracy expressed in the Manifesto. It will enable horizontal exchanges between civil society organisations and movements across Europe, providing a common and permanent space to share experience and knowledge, scale up campaigns and other forms of collective action, strengthen the capacity of its members to connect people in the diversity of their democratic forms of expression and act for change around the shared values expresses in the Manifesto.
