Active Citizenship

What is active citizenship

Active citizenship refers to our responsibility as individuals towards society and the environment.

Our approach

We are convinced that positive change can be implemented through a bottom-up approach, with a solid, concerted grassroots effort, in which each and every citizen adopts a proactive, constructive and responsible attitude vis-a-vis the main issues that society faces. There are so many things that people can do themselves in order to positively impact their environment, their lives and the lives of those around them. If each of us spent less time and energy whining about what we don't like or what doesn't work well in Romania and use that time and energy to actually do something about these problems, we would be in a fundamentally better position today.


GRASP supports active citizenship by serving as a prime example of a volunteer-powered organization. Through our projects, we are demonstrating how much can actually be achieved when people focus on the solution instead of the problem, when people think beyond themselves and when people actually care!
