Taking into consideration the recommendations of our participants, the 7th edition of the Black Sea NGO Forum will launch a multi-stakeholder regional consultation with the purpose of starting the process of creating a Strategy of Civil Society in the Black Sea Region. In order for this to be a successful endeavour, we rely on your valuable input and expertise to identify the common needs and challenges for fostering an enabling environment in which civil society carries out its activity.
