Our work in Europe is currently being delivered in Poland and Lithuania, while in the past it has been delivered in Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Hungary and Latvia. 

Our work focusses on youth activism and contributes to positive social change within communities, reinforcing a strong sense of local culture and identity.

Recently, in Poland a successful partnership was developed with Krakow City Council. The Active Citizens Academy has also been launched which is a grass roots initiative of Active Citizens alumni in Gdansk. The Academy strives for sustainability and thanks to external funds has run a Visegrad version of the Active Citizens Programme involving NGO representatives from Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and the UK.

In Czech Republic, Structural Funds funded a project delivered in schools and focused on civic education, community development and cooperation between the school system and local government.
