Civic Engagement

Civic engagement is those individual and collective actions that address issues of public concern and at its most basic is about the rights of citizens to participate in deciding on the public good and how those public resources are allocated. The fundamental principle of civic engagement is tied to the notion of democratic governance in that the right to rule resides in each of the citizens. Civic engagement ranges from those informal and individual actions, such as volunteering and community service, to engagement at the organisational level through to the more formalized and collective action of citizens, such as participative democracy.
