We believe civil society and independent media are at the heart of social change and progress in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. No matter how tough the problem, no matter how challenging the conditions, active citizens rooted in their communities are vital to the creation of more open and accountable societies. With a focus on innovation, technology and creative communications, we empower change makers with the knowledge, skills and resources to improve lives and hold power to account.
