The main goal of the project is to build the information website mamprawowiedziec.pl. – as a transparent system of publicly available information about people performing elective public functions in Poland (their activities and parliamentary decisions). The grantee would like to mobilize civic activity by means of the internet and thus persuade Poles to take an active part in their country’s democratic processes and mechanisms. By means of an independent information website, Association 61 wants to increase Polish voters’ knowledge about their representatives and the rights they posses in citizen-state relations. The grantee also hopes to encourage citizens to take an active part in public life by means of verifying politicians’ views, actions and electoral promises as well as initiating civic debate.
