ViabilityNet 3.0, one of Via Foundation’s programs, will run from 2017 to 2019. The vision of the program is a CEE region with resilient, viable, livable local communities, in which residents are actively involved in community affairs.
The program aims to impact local community work on these levels:
Changes in Local Communities
Firstly, we want to see specific and intentional changes and improvements in communities in CEE countries that lead towards more livable, viable and resilient local communities such as:
changes focused on more livable communities, typically aiming at physical i.e. tangible changes
“soft” changes such as an increase in people’s willingness to accept otherness, increased openness in communities, less fear and more hope, etc.
changes stimulating community resilience, building the capacity of communities to withstand or adapt to change
changes enhancing community philanthropy by supporting development of local self-sufficiency and building local resilience, strengthening social connections and enhancing civic engagement
