How to engage civil society and activate grassroots movements for consumer choice

The Consumer Choice Center (CCC) is a global initiative that aims to empower consumers across the globe. Consumer choice is pivotal for economic freedom and lifestyle decision. Regulators on local, national, and supranational levels keep regulating more and more areas of consumers’ lives. This leads to less consumer choice and higher costs for consumers.
Whether protectionism in the airline industry prevents more efficient airlines to sell cheaper tickets to passengers, excessive taxation of consumption serves as letter of indulgence, or branding bans destroy the brand value of companies: Consumers don’t benefit but suffer from such regulation.
In some cases paternalistic regulations cause even harm. Examples can be seen in more driving under influence cases in cities after banning ride-sharing services such as Uber or smokers being unable to switch to less harmful ways of consuming nicotine such as vaporizers. Branding bans lead to a higher accidental consumption of counterfeited products that can be of lethal consequence for the consumer.
 The CCC empowers consumers to raise their voice in media, the Internet, and on the streets, facilitating activism towards more freedom of choice in the marketplace. Learning from the successes of its parent organization, Students For Liberty, the CCC will elevate the struggle for consumer freedom to the next level.
Join us at our launch event on April 26 in Brussels, Belgium.
