Cooperation for EU integration- Citizens Lab
CitizensLab is a community of currently 56 practitioners from all over Europe and Turkey. The members represent a diverse spectrum of active citizens engaged in NGOs and public administration, but also social entrepreneurs, cultural managers, artists, hacktivists or academics.
Head of Board, Ildiko Simon: In the past 12 years I have spent many days with community organizing as
well as community development and my attention turned to social
entrepreneurship as one of the only exit for people living in poor rural
area, very often they are Romas. My organization Cromo Foundation was
established in 2002 to contribute to local, regional cooperation of
non-governmental, business and governmental actors to strengthen a
participatory, active, democratic society in Hungary.
