CIVITAS

CIVITAS

Civitas Foundation for Civil Society is a nongovernmental organisation founded in Romania in October 1992. The Foundation stimulates local and regional development and the main reasons for its creation were the need to enhance government capacity and to enhance citizen involvement in decision making and local governance.

In the 20 years of existence, Civitas Foundation has successfully run programmes aimed at developing communities. The programmes were designed both to improve public administration capacity in these areas, so they would be capable of managing the changes imposed by the EU integration process, and to educate or train the citizens (through courses, training, information and awareness sessions). The Foundation thus aims to be involved in community development, fulfilling the role of a catalyst.
