Demographic Change and Civic Engagement: Civic Engagement and its Contribution to Local Development
In the following text we present selected results of the Second Engagement Report. The report is devoted to the topic of “Demographic Change and Civic Engagement: Civic Engagement and its Contribution to Local Development”. In accordance with the remit of the report, the Second Engagement Report has a particular focus on the degree of importance accruing to the manifold types of civic participation – from classic forms of honorary office to political participation, from helping out in the neighbourhood to working on behalf of people who have fled their countries of origin – and what impact they have on efforts to cope with demographic change in towns and rural areas.
