We are a recently launched, European online campaigning organisation in the spirit of the amazing work done by our friends at Campact.de in Germany and 38Degrees.org.uk in the UK.
Our idea is to respond to the crisis of European democracy with creative online campaigning. Having launched in September 2015 with great success (close to a million members), we are now focused on continuing our fast growth. You would be joining a team of 20 dedicated activists located all over Europe: France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Belgium, Poland, Romania, the Netherlands and Slovenia.
