Civitas Foundation for Civil Society is a NGO in Romania which aims to stimulate the local and regional development. When referring to development we mean a process by which the members of a community increase their personal and institutional capacities to mobilize resources in order to produce sustainable improvements in the quality of their life, improvement suiting their own aspirations.
Civitas Foundation was founded in October 1992. The main reasons for its founding were the need to enhance the local government capacity and to stimulate the citizen’s involvement in decision making and local governance. The foundation carries on activities in Transylvania, but carries on projects on national and international level (South East Europe) too.
