Fostering libraries as democratic spaces

The Europe Challenge was launched in 2020 by the European Cultural Foundation, in collaboration with Democratic Society (DemSoc), Public Libraries 2030 and Amsterdam Public Libraries (OBA).

The 2022 edition of the Europe Challenge is supported by the European Cultural Foundation, Fondazione Cariplo and the Scottish Library & Information Council.
