Local community leaders’ program

 „Grow (with) your community“


(Author: )

Via Foundation, based in Prague, has launched ViabilityNet 3.0, a program that offers local community leaders space to learn, reflect, connect and grow together and funding for projects that focus on empowering their own local communities. ViabilityNet 3.0 is focused primarily on the Central and Eastern European region (CEE), with secondary reach into Western Europe.
The participants of the first round of “Grow (with) your community” – Local community leaders’ program were selected in June 2017 and engaged in their first meeting in the first week of August 2017.
You can find bios of the participants here.
