EU Programmes webinar: Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values Programme (CERV)

As part of its series on EU programmes, OCTA organised a webinar on the programme Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values Programme (CERV) on the 9 December 2021, 21-22h30 (Brussels time). This programme is implemented by the Directorate-General of Justice and Consumers of the European Commission.

CERV’s general aim is to protect and promote rights and values as enshrined in the EU Treaties and the Charter of Fundamental Rights. In particular, by supporting civil society organisations active at local, regional, national and transnational level. It aims to sustain and develop open, rights-based, democratic, equal and inclusive societies based on the rule of law. That includes a vibrant and empowered civil society, encouraging people’s democratic, civic and social participation and cultivating the rich diversity of European society, based on our common values, history and memory.

Further information can be found in our website’s section on CERV.
