European Union Sivil Düşün Programme: The European Union technical assistance programme that responds directly and swiftly to the needs of civil society…
European Union Sivil Düşün Programme was launched by the Delegation of the European Union to Turkey towards the end of 2012 to support civil society. The programme supports activists, civil society organisations, networks and platforms under the same umbrella.
Through various support mechanisms, Sivil Düşün supports active individuals and civil society organisations. These support mechanisms have been designed as a result of the input provided by civil society actors during consultations carried out with representatives of numerous civil society organisations, as well as activists, throughout Turkey.
Sivil Düşün was designed to strengthen the structures and values of participatory democracy. The programme supports are open to all the activities that strive to contribute to the strengthening of democratic values, and are based on stringent principles of fair competition, equal opportunity and transparency.
