The Good Lobby is a civic start-up committed to equalizing political power and influence in Europe and beyond. We do so by fostering bottom-up civic capacity via cross-societal forms of collaboration, such as skill-sharing and skill-based workshops. A project of eLabEurope The Good Lobby has emerged from the expanding crises in European citizenship and civil society and – as such – is also a social movement. We are the first organisation devoted to popularizing and democratizing the various channels of participatory democracy existing at both national and EU level. By mobilizing and empowering European citizens (Citizen Lobbyists) as well as a wider range of constituencies, such as progressive companies, campaigners and foundations through targeted engagement in the policy process, we foster assertive citizenship so as to create more accountable, cohesive and happier societies.
