BBE Bundesnetzwerk Bürgerschaftliches Engagement
The members of the Bundesnetzwerks Bürgerschaftliches Engagement (BBE) strive for the common goal – to create the best possible legal, institutional and organizational conditions for civic involvement in a sustainable way.
The BBE regards support for civic involvement as a sociopolitical responsibility, which includes all areas of society and politics and not only a select few. The goals, therefore, include strengthening individual responsibility, participation and initiative of citizens as well as developing new forms and processes in social decision-making processes. In order to do this, BBE focuses on breaking down bureaucratic barriers and supports the continuing development of ‘friendlier’ conditions in organizations and institutions for civic involvement.
