Cooperation, Support and the Exchange of best Practices between CSOs in Cyprus and in other EU Member States
Civic Space supports the establishment and strengthening of ties between civil society organizations in Cyprus with CSOs from other EU Member States by providing support services to Cypriot CSOs in institution and partnership building.
Civic Space will provide online and offline “spaces” to facilitate the development of these partnerships and networks. To do so, Civic Space can:
- Identify opportunities for Cypriot CSOs to interact and network with other European counterparts;
- Carry out a “match-making” function to link Cypriot CSOs with other EU level CSOs per sector of activity;
Provide mentoring and coaching, organize study visits and internships, and support Cypriot CSOs participation to conferences in other EU member States.

> Creating Action Learning Sets with European CSOs .
Civic Space will make use of “Action Learning Sets” tools for a group of Cypriot CSOs or activists that would like to come together to research, analyse, reflect and design action plans on issues of common interest, and to exchange views on their organisations’ current challenges.
Civic Space will support the development of these sets by facilitating online communications, supporting the organisations of meetings and following up with all participants.
