The Good Lobby
The Good Lobby is a non-profit civic start up committed to equalizing access to power for a more democratic, and inclusive Europe. Through a pioneering crowdsourcing approach, we help people like you to turn their cause - be it about rights, environment, health, or digital surveillance - into an effective advocacy campaign.
By mobilising and empowering citizens through unconventional alliances with and among NGOs, progressive companies, social entrepreneurs and foundations, we foster assertive citizenship so as to create a more accountable and responsive political process all across Europe and beyond.
We believe that every citizen can make a difference in their community. We inspire and help citizens organise in ‘good lobbies’, enabling them to balance the undue influence of special interest groups. Only when acting with the expertise and strategic support of a variety of other actors, can citizens influence major policy decisions, by holding their political representatives accountable and sharing new solutions with them to protect and foster the common good.
