How to drive change with #Causes.
What is Causes?
Causes is a feature of Talos – an online civic technology platform for us Europeans. Essentially, we want to empower You to drive positive change within our European Union. We aim to do so by providing You with the necessary online infrastructure that You need to make your Cause succeed.
What counts as a Cause?
From Talos’ perspective, a Cause is a grassroots civic initiative started by EU citizens. A Cause can take multiple forms – for example, a concrete proposal addressing the structure of the European Union, the creation of a civil society organisation or pan-European citizen’s movement to overcome a common societal challenge or a call to change, extend, or re-define EU regulations. What matters is that You seek to drive positive change – and we intend to support You in your endeavour through Causes.
How does Causes allow me to drive positive change?
We provide your Cause a customizable virtual HQ – a webpage – on our civic technology platform: Talos. Through your Cause webpage, we want to empower You to gain everything needed for your initiative: gain supporters, sign-up volunteers, secure crowdfunding, engage in crowdspeaking, mobilize supporters for events, recruit team members and connect with fellow citizens through your social media platforms. Crucially, we will help You to the best of our ability to drive institutionalized change by utilizing the e-democracy tools of our European Union.
How can I drive institutionalized change?
Together we can spark a European reform-era by registering European Parliament e-petitions, launching European Citizens’ Initiatives and utilizing European Commission Public Consultations as well as European Central Bank Consultations.
