Swiss support for civic engagement strengthens both citizens' ability to influence democratic processes and the provision of environmental and social services. Sharing experiences with Swiss organisations is particularly valuable in this respect.

Civic engagement and transparency

Associations, citizens' initiatives, interest groups and NGOs working with the media are able to incorporate pluralistic structures and citizens' concerns into political decision-making processes. Support for independent initiatives and this kind of networking strengthens democratic processes.
