This coalition helps Czech civil society to be better connected and more resilient, so it is better prepared to face challenges related to the shrinking space for civil society. The coalition creates a more effective cooperation mechanism across the civic sector in the Czech Republic by increasing the scope and the quality of networking, strengthening trust and solidarity between civil society actors, and enhancing their connection with the general public. Its toolkit includes an actionable database of active citizens, coordinated advocacy, communication, and research. It is a “network of networks” (NeoN), which is a light, decentralised network that interconnects 15 autonomous thematic platforms and working groups with 4 functional networks coordinating mobilization, advocacy, PR and research of more than 250 civil society organizations. The coalition comprises organisations working in very varied fields such as transparency, inclusive education, women’s empowerment, sustainable development, responsible democracy, and the environment.
