The civil society organisations behind the initiative, Art of Fundamental Rights, are built up by different national CSO’s from all parts of Europe, both South, North, East and West. Here citizens have very different lives and approaches to fundamental rights, which is interesting to explore and study. Furthermore, one partner is from a Brussels based umbrella organisation, which ensures the connection to the EU institutions. The idea with the project is to streghen the awareness of the EU charter of Fundamental Rights among citizens in Europe.
