We have defended democracy and human rights since 1995
ForumCiv is the largest civil society platform in Sweden. Our members are Swedish civil society organizations. The coordination of the Swedish member organizations is done through our head office in Stockholm. The head office in Sweden also supports ForumCiv's other offices.
If you are a Swedish organization interested in membership, visit our Swedish website.
Since the very beginning, supporting civil society has been the essence of our cause. Sustainable and lasting change for democracy can only happen when we work together and when the development process is owned by the people who will live and breathe the changes.
Examples of what ForumCiv contributes to
ForumCiv's head office in Sweden operates as sub-granting administrators via The Swedish Partnership Programme, ForumCiv’s largest programme. The Swedish Partnership Programme, aims at strengthening civil society actors as agents of change in over 70 countries. In this programme, Swedish organizations can, together with one or multiple local partner organizations, apply for grants from the Swedish Partnership Programme to strengthen partnerships and together implement effective and equitable development work.
Together with partners in countries where we work and our member organizations, ForumCiv is also advocating to influence Swedish and European policies towards a fair and sustainable world. From our Swedish office, we ensure that voices from low-income countries are heard in the Swedish debate. We want Swedish aid to be used in an effective way and that it makes a difference for the most vulnerable.
In Sweden, we work with Globalportalen, a digital platform aimed at young adults who are passionate about global issues and want to contribute to a just and sustainable world. We also coordinate the Eastern Partnership Network that aims to strengthen collaboration with civil society in the Eastern Partnership countries and Russia.
