Public Libraries As Active Citizens Hubs
6 libraries in Romania, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine have started the project “Public libraries as active citizens hubs”, implemented by the Progress Foundation, with the support of the Black Sea Trust of Regional Cooperation.
This project aims to create a support network, consisting of public libraries and NGOs, which will support the establishment of public spaces in libraries for learning and practicing active citizenship.
The civic involvement of citizens in the community can lead to significant changes in the way society works. And finally, they can improve people’s quality of life.
In order to become truly active citizens, the inhabitants of Romania, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine need spaces in which to meet, where to discuss issues of general interest and a context in which to learn, exchange ideas, communicate and collaborate. And public libraries are the perfect host!
