Active Citizenship through Volunteering Training Course
Following the idea that “Citizenship involves volunteering but not all volunteering involves citizenship”, social participation is closely linked with volunteering. While the situation is better than when we talk about active citizenship, the numbers are still very low. According to Eurostat, only 20.7% of the population over 16 in EU are taking part in volunteering activities (an average calculated between formal and informal voluntary activities). Cyprus and Romania are again on the bottom of the list, with only 4,9% and 3,2% of the population volunteering. The other countries are not in a better position either, almost a half of the EU member states (14 countries) having less than 15% of the population involved in volunteering. Therefore, there is an obvious balance between the involvement in voluntary activities and active citizenship, and the majority of the population from the EU countries doesn’t get involved in the society
