The Resource Centre for Public Participation (CeRe) was set up in 2006, based on the belief that public decisions must be taken in a participatory way. CeRe acts with citizens, organisations and communities, to build a just and equitable world, where people stand together, and play an active role in decision making. We have a solid expertise in advocacy and policy making, community organizing, coalition building, facilitation and community engagement.
Together with citizens, organizations and communities, we build day by day a just and equitable world, where people stand together and their voices are central to the decision-making processes.
CeRe spearheaded community organizing in Romania more than 10 years ago. Since then we have worked with over 165 civic groups or organizations, providing assistance on their campaigns.
CeRe has an annual budget of approximately EUR250,000. Most of the budget is granted project-based by institutional donors, such as: Civitates, Open Society Foundation, The Black Sea Trust for Regional Cooperation or Civil Society Development Foundation. A small portion of our budget is supported by individual donors or companies.
