Project Romania 2020

The fourth edition of our signature event, Project Romania 2020, goes to Amsterdam. Between November 18-20, 2011 we plan a weekend-long conference, full of exciting workshops, panels and keynote speakers.

Project Romania 2020: Because We Care – The Role of Active Citizenship in Romania’s Development will tackle some of the issues related to active citizenship:

  • What does it mean to be a Romanian active citizen in a global world?
  • How do companies participate in encouraging active citizenship among their employees?
  • Is CSR the real deal, or just a trend to build the image of corporations?
  • Volunteering – the classic model of civic involvement – how do we take it to the next level and transform it into civic engagement and community organizing to keep the momentum going?

These are just a few of the themes we will address at the fourth edition of Project Romania 2020.
