/ TOOLS FOR CITIZENS
tools for citizens
Tools for Citizens program was built to support civil society identify assets and needs gained by action field work of civil society actors and facilitate the process of translating this knowledge into easy and accessible tools, methods and workshops that will help community groups, organizations and institutions globally to cover organizational and functional needs.
TFC was inspired by communities in crisis and its Toolbox was co-created with the input of civil society actors from Turkey in 2017 and Greece in 2018.
All the tools, methods and workshops that were developed and archived during the program, created the Civil Society Toolbox!
Since 2018, the Civil Society Toolbox supports civil society actors, community groups, organizations, institutions and foundations to identify and address organizational and MMM
functional needs by providing easy and accessible DIY tools, methods and workshops which were co-developed by Civil Society for Civil Society.
The program was developed within the cooperation of MitOst (Germany), Anadolu Kültür (Turkey), Socius (Germany), COMM’ON (Greece) and AoHAthina (Greece) with the consultancy of Laden Yurttagüler and Yörük Kurtaran (Turkey), the contribution of HIGGS (Greece) and Impact Hub Athens (Greece) and the support of Robert Bosch Stiftung (Germany).

In 2019, COMM’ON led the process of translating and contextualizing the Toolbox to the greek context, making it available for the Greek community.
