After a process which lasted for several months, the Agency for the Support of Civil Society (ASCS) has become a full rights member, at the European Network (VOLONTEUROPE)
This international network exercises its activity to promote the values of volunteering, active citizenship and social justice at the European level and beyond. Currently this network is composed of 51 member organizations and collaborates constantly with European institutions (European Commission, Parliament, and Council of Europe).
Volonteurope is working for years on building collaborative networks between partner organizations and institutional actors, as well as lobbying concerning the topics covered so far. In 2011 the Network was the initiator of "The European Year of Volunteering".
ASCS membership, joining this important network, will expand the possibilities of European cooperation of ASCS itself and also will be an opportunity for civil society organizations, to go, increasingly, beyond national boundaries.
