How we work
Civic entities in motion
Plus Europe works with its network of collaborators to coordinate civic initiatives, interact with European institutions, to enforce civic participation in European democratic governance.
We work with:
European citizens & civic entities
The raison d’être of Plus Europe are the citizens. Therefore, citizens are the natural partner with which we collaborate.
Chambers of Commerce & Companies
Chambers of Commerce are essential to enhance civic participation in European governance, since they are the greatest business network of committed and talented citizens. As such, Plus Europe considers them central partners.
The power of chambers in Europe is represented, for example, by Eurochambres, the European Association of Chambers of Commerce and Industry, that counts with*:
- 47 European member countries
- 2,000 regional and local Chambers of Commerce
- 20,000,000 of enterprises of which 93% are small and medium-sized
- 120,000,000 employees

The involvement of several professional associations is fundamental as well. The expertise and professionalism of their affiliates make them committed citizens, not only to their profession or skill, but also to a wider conception of shared European citizenship.
Therefore, Plus Europe collaborates, among others, with European, national, regional and local associations of Economists, Lawyers, Engineers, Journalists, Consumers or students.
