towards cosmopolitan citizenship and full political participation in Europe

Citizens For Europe (CFE) is a Berlin based non-profit organisation and social business that fosters diversity, solidarity and democracy towards a more inclusive and participative society at the local and European level.

We work on changing structures, creating awareness, as well as empowering communities and people.
We design and develop local and European advocacy campaigns and projects.
We focuse on issues of citizenship, diversity, migration, political participation and representation.

In our work and as a service provider, we use collaborative and participatory approaches, non-formal education methods and techniques, as well as media in order to bring together diverse stakeholders and foster collective intelligence to develop creative and innovative solutions.

  • We promote political participation by supporting the extension of voting rights and political engagement at the EU and local level.
  • We foster social inclusion and fight discrimination and racism in society, acknowledging existing ethnic and cultural diversity in Europe and demonstrating the value and advantage of it.
  • We bridge the European and local level and act as a platform for cooperation between different actors of civil society, academics and politics.
