‘Connecting Civil Society’
Scotland’s Community Sector is a distinct part of the wider Third Sector – just as the Third Sector – is a distinct part of Civil Society. In anticipation of the European elections on June 4, civil society organisations across Europe (including Scotland) have agreed a joint manifesto called ‘‘Connecting Civil Society’’.
Launching the European Election manifesto
NCVO and the European Network of National Associations are launching their joint EU manifesto Connecting Civil Society which has been written in partnership with major national umbrella groups in 14 countries and with recommendations from NCVO members.
The manifesto draws together the key views of national civil society organisations to promote a shared vision of the needs of voluntary, community and non-profit organisations across Europe.
