Agora Central Europe

The mission of Agora Central Europe civic association is fostering democracy. Our general activities are aimed at improving the standard of political culture, of communication between the local government, central government and the citizens. We showcase new practices in local governance and open new possibilities of effective co-operation in decision-making. We have a presence in the Czech Republic and abroad – mainly in Eastern Europe (the Balkan and post-Soviet countries).

Our projects are implemented through a broad range of activities. We hold public debates and meetings. Our citizen participation projects rely on a wide spectrum of professional methods. We facilitate working groups, conducts sociological surveys and polls. As part of the project implementation, we transfer knowledge and experience to our partners (towns or NGOs), enabling them to carry on without our direct involvement. We organise professional seminars, training, and conferences for our partners. We also provide consultations to interested parties.
