We are particularly interested in the transformative and emancipatory potential of these struggles, empowering activists and people in general to step from resistance to positive outcome and even systemic change.
Six of them will be selected by the European Civic Forum based on: 1) the effectiveness of their approach to resist shrinking of democratic spaces and fundamental rights;2) the positive impact of their action on their communities as well as on the political and public life;3) the general state of civic space and fundamental rights in the countries in which they operate.
The selection will also try to ensure a fair territorial and thematic representation of various challenges and diverse rights-related issues. They should illustrate some of the many ways of considering a mobilisation a success.Selected activists will be invited to a reward ceremony in Brussels in winter 2019, and their stories will be collected in the Activizenship #4 magazine (find the background note here: http://civic-forum.eu/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/activizenship-4.pdf).
Please complete all the sections as fully as possible. If you leave a section blank, it will be difficult to evaluate the nomination. Try, as far as possible, to give concrete evidence of what is asked.
Nominations are open until 15 June.
