Duration October 2016 – July 2019

Project Manager Dr. René John

Client BMUB, UBA

Cooperation Partner Universität Siegen, Sociodimension

The aim of the project is to identify potentials and synergies for socio-ecological change processes both in the classic areas of environmental commitment and in other areas of civic commitment, and to derive recommendations for funding and action for its dissemination.

In this context, the social function of civic engagement for socio-ecological renewal is to be defined more closely and a concept of civic engagement that is practical, contemporary and sustainable for environmental protection and sustainability is to be developed.
