Grassroots Open Spaces

This project aims to foster connections and collaboration among various initiatives from diverse social movements, offering immediate value by providing a platform for participants to exchange visions, strategies, support around common challenges, and resources. Particularly beneficial for new groups and individuals, it facilitates contact with existing initiatives. In the long term, the project focuses on capacity building, spreading facilitation and self-organizing skills, nurturing a regenerative culture, and fostering lasting relationships between groups. By establishing connections with a broad range of organizations, we ensure that timely issues relevant to participants can be addressed at events. Our initiative, born out of the need for alignment leading up to the 2024 national elections in Austria, has already hosted two open space events, with plans for three more this year.
