About us

An NGO halfway between good governance and active citizenship
Funky Citizens is the meeting place for citizens who don't limit themselves to the status quo, but understand their role in democracy, which is why they work their civic muscle and often take part in the decision-making process. Our strongest weapons are smart technology initiatives, data and communication advocacy, and civic education - a cross-cutting pillar in everything we do.

History

Transparency

Here you can find annual reports for every year

Within available time, we always answer invitations from the press to talk about the team and what we do

Who finances us?

Formal projects have a clear source on the project page Regarding grants, we use the following route:

  1. We apply for independently and objectively juried project contests 
  2. We sign a financing contract which states the funds we received for doing the things we'd said we'd do in the financing application. 
  3. The financing source has no influence on how the project is handled and financial information is always transparent and in the open

You can be one of our sponsors.
