‘Shaping Tomorrow: Enhancing Civic Participation in Cyprus’ Conference

‘Shaping Tomorrow: Enhancing Civic Participation in Cyprus’ Conference

Empowered and active citizens are the cornerstone of any democracy and the driving force behind any meaningful change and progress. Yet, active citizenship and civic participation do not exist in a vacuum – they can only be cultivated through education and culture, harnessed by democratic policies and principles, as well as furthered by civil society practitioners, institutions and organisations.

To explore the immense potential active citizenship holds in our community, we would like to invite you to ‘Sharing Tomorrow: Enhancing Civic Participation in Cyprus’ Conference, as we investigate these pivotal parameters in action.

Bringing together eminent speakers, with longstanding expertise and experience in the field, the presentations and fireside discussions will bring to the fore interdisciplinary perspectives and ideas across the themes of:

  • Participatory Policy Making/Decision Making
  • Enabling Environment for Civil Society Organisations: Challenges and Opportunities
  • Young People at the Forefront of Change
  • Media in the Era of Truth Decay: The Impact of Disinformation

Please find the full agenda of the event here.

Whether you are an active citizen, a civil society practitioner, or a CSO representative – join in on the conversation and share your take on the matters!
