CEPI is a public policy interactive media platform, aiming at helping individuals and organizations who are interested in public policy create awareness and instigate engagement around innovative & actionable policy ideas that address specific problems or opportunities.
The platform is still at stealth mode, but you can get in touch in advance to take a look at it and – most important – contribute your content in advance.
How your organization can be involved
You already have experience in your field, have done research or identified gaps, problems, opportunities and ideas; CEPI will help you create awareness and encourage engagement, supporting you in becoming a catalyst of the change you want to see!
Share specific policy ideas
Publish a policy gap, problem, opportunity or idea; we will help you spread the word and urge engagement.
Your content is attributed to your organization and you will have a page for all your contributions.
Radio & Videocasts
We will help you create & communicate radio and video casts presenting & discussing your policy ideas.
Policy related articles
Publish policy related articles in CEPI’s blog, even if they are not specific policy ideas.

How you can get involved
If you have identified gaps in policy making, unsolved problems, missed opportunities, interesting and innovative policy ideas, become a contributor and a catalyst of the change you want to see! If your organization (ie. think tank, interest group, university research center, etc) has performed relevant research and has valuable insights towards specific issues that can translate into policy, join us!
Too busy to get involved as a contributor but you fell in love with us nevertheless? Join CEPI as policy spotter. Policy spotters give us a heads-up when they come across an interesting policy idea, innovation, opportunity or change. If you can also provide us with resources, that would be great! Once we get these information, our policy curators will work on creating content out of those ideas.
In CEPI we have a robust internship program, offering the opportunity to students and young graduates to get involved into a policy / media organization.
As intern, you will have the opportunity to:
> Use a variety of web platforms and tools: project management, CRM, website/CMS
> Refine your business communication skills (written)
> Get in touch with policy researchers and activists from all around Europe
> Get exposure to the latest policy trends, issues and discussions
Usually we offer 3-month, 16 hours/week unpaid internships which can also be performed virtually. Internships can be extended if both parties agree.Apply for internship
CEPI is a timely and well thought out project. The CEPI team mix experience and enthusiasm to great effect. They fill a sizeable gap between organs of municipal governance and denizens of the greater Thessaloniki area. I am happy to endorse their efforts in this endeavor.

In today’s world, a government cannot, and should not do everything for the citizen. Each citizen as an individual, and in groups, has the responsibility to change things-there is no lack of will, but up to now, they have lacked a means. CEPI provides a means for citizens and groups to engage in effective, sustainable local change. It is a tool for better interaction between governments and citizens; a vehicle for the emergence of a civic minded community; the means towards the creation of a better society.

We believe that CEPI can combine theory with action. Innovative policies can improve our lives and CEPI gives the opportunity to develop such ideas. The people who created CEPI have genuine interest in policy making as well as in applied economic methods. Τhe use of debates (that CEPI suggests) to present all sides of a problem or issue that concerns all members of society at a local or international level is very useful and will lead to the best possible solution.
CEPI accelerates active citizenship and mobilizes the civic society to take collective action by facilitating democratic processes and policy making.
