Participation of civil society in the Danube strategy: A new independent network borne approach
Civil society in the Danube region and the countries and regions (EU member and non members alike) concerned are invited to take part in the process of shaping and realizing the new strategy.
The integrative, interdisciplinary and cross-sectional character of the issues covered by the strategy opens a broad based opportunity for civil society to get involved.
This website and the Danube Civil Society Forum functions as a nucleus of a joined civil society approach to a new macro regional approach of the EU and not less than 14 countries in the Danube basin to redirect their interregional cooperation and to coordinate key policies in the area of environment, infrastructure, energy, education, and culture in the 21st century.
A new independent network borne approach along side and in addition to the supra national and national strategies to develop the Danube Region is able to unfold enormous support, energy and vitality within the process of the Danube Strategy. A dedicated, informed participation of civil society with ownership of a jointly (governmental-non-governmental) developed and executed strategy will strongly underpin the desired change, foster democracy, rule of law and good governance in the region of the Danube basin.
The Danube Civil Society Forum brings together and empowers a sizable group of change agents, broad based in their agenda and unlimited in their creativity.
