Whether contributing as individuals or in groups, every society succeeds or fails based on the willingness of its citizens to get involved. Civil society actors around the globe help ensure that critical issues are addressed in a wide range of areas, including education, healthcare, social affairs, culture and sports. They are also key players when it comes to environmental protection and development work. Those are just a few of the reasons why the Bertelsmann Stiftung is committed to promoting civic engagement and the non-profit sector.
