    Active & Responsible Citizen = Flourishing Future Society

    ACT! is a project about active citizenship. It aims to reach active community members who want and have something to say on issues they care about. They are ready to take actions and through their activities inspire other members of the local community to act. Partners from 6 EU countries - Bulgaria, Ireland, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Romania, Spain - worked together and exchanged their experiences on how to organize civic actions and fulfill the goals of the project successfully. In order to define the concept of active citizen, and to explore conditions that stimulate citizenship the partners collected and analyzed good practice examples in their countries on how to run effective civic actions. Based on the developed methodologies (using the principles of the Theater of the Oppressed) the partnership organized trainings for active members of their societies and on line forum discussions for the project partners and trainees. Later on, together with the most active trainees and representatives of various socially active organizations at least three unique civic actions reflecting local community problems were implemented in each partner country. The most successful civic actions were presented during the final project event in Vilnius, LT that consisted of two parts: first, all the partners organized civic actions; afterwards an open-air action-concert Act Out Loud took place. The overall project activities, experience gained and feedback received allow the partnership to claim that social issues and creative solutions to them are relevant both to the target groups and to the general public. People are willing to participate and express their concerns in civic actions if they are provided with appropriate know-how. This is the goal of the main product of the project - 'ACT Interactive' - interactive methodologies on how to organize effective civic actions in their communities and make them more convincing and attractive by using various forms of art.
