Welcome to our press section. If you are interested in the Advocate Europe idea challenge, get in touch with us.

Advocate Europe is an idea challenge realised by MitOst and Liquid Democracy, funded by Stiftung Mercator.

Since 2014, we have collected more than 1,500 ideas from 42 European countries, connected 49,745 people on our online platform and invested in 25 winning initiatives that pilot new answers for a common European future. Our flyer provides an initial insight into the idea challenge.
