Civic competences and understanding of civil society are the basis for the development of a democratic country.

The main objective of the project "Academy of Democracy"" is to contribute to the sustainability of civil society in Latvia, by improving the capacities of leaders of regional and local CSOs, improving the knowledge of policymakers about civil society, and increase the number of active young citizens - thereby strengthening civil society in general.

During the project, a special professional development education program in the field of civic competence will be developed. It will be practically implemented in all regions of Latvia, involving 3 main target groups - leaders and representatives of Latvian NGOs, representatives of public administration institutions and active local residents.
In parallel with face-to-face training, an online program available to anyone interested will be organized, including questions about civil society, as well as networking events for active citizens and exchanges of practical experiences to strengthen the acquisition of theoretical knowledge in practical activities.

At the end of the project, the developed curriculum will be available to everyone interested, as well as the database of lecturers created according to it, a collection of methods used to achieve the goals of learning and activities, examples of experience and good practice, etc. materials that can be used in future activities, for the education and capacity building of civil society organizations and active citizens by society themselves and policy makers.
