About us

Mission
CIVICUS is an international alliance dedicated to strengthening citizen action and civil society throughout the world.

Our Vision

A worldwide community of informed, inspired, committed citizens engaged in confronting the challenges facing humanity.

Our Purpose

CIVICUS is dedicated to pursuing a world such that:

citizen action is a predominant feature of the political, economic and cultural life of all societies,
private action for the public good is expressed by a rich and diverse array of organizations operating sometimes apart and sometimes in dialogue with government and business,
and a healthy society is one in which there is an equitable relationship among citizens, their associations and foundations, business and governments.

CIVICUS' special purpose, therefore, is to help nurture the foundation, growth, protection and resourcing of citizen action throughout the world and especially in areas where participatory democracy, freedom of association of citizens and their funds for public benefit are threatened.

Our Commitment

As a global alliance of citizens and their organizations, we help advance regional, national and international initiatives to strengthen the capacity of civil society. In partnership with our members, we are committed to:

strengthening the visibility and understanding of civil society,
working to develop a more supportive environment of laws, policies, and regulations,
developing permanent, self-sustaining, and creative resource mechanisms,
having an open forum, serving to facilitate and establish cross-sectorial dialogue, exchange information, develop a common understanding and shared identity, solidarity, cooperation, and communication within civil society from various regions, and promote a common vision about the role of civil society.
