Citizens to a lesser extent connect the future with a victory on elections of these or those parties, counting more on own forces.
Such is one of the main conclusions of research of Fund of development of Nikolaev, which results were presented on 4 - m a regional forum of self-organization of Nikolayevshchina "Successful practicians of civil action in Nikolayevshchina" which was carried out within the project of the Fund of a Development of the City of Nikolaev (FDCN) "Mikrogranta as the instrument of democratic consolidation of local communities of Nikolayevshchina".
We will return to research. There were also other changes in civil society.
As a result of introduction in principle life "Rescue of the drowning - work drowning", last year FRGN was noted by growth of influence of a community on local policy not only in Nikolaev, but also in a number of the area cities.
Groups of civil action outside Nikolaev learned to attract resources of the donor organizations, the state budget. Practice of support of civil initiatives by business in bulks of Nikolaev and area develops.
These are charitable programs of the companies "NIBULON", "Invev", "Velam", competitions of grants of the Center of social programs "RUSAL", support by small business of single civil initiatives in Nikolaev and Snigirevke, N. Bug, and also experience of competitions mini - grants of-2008 g within the programs FRGN "Youth Bank" and "Green Friend" which for the first time have been carried out without involvement of external donors.
As a result, as results of research testify, there are two tendencies: on the one hand, at national level there is a turning of democratic institutes, with another - at local level it is possible to state processes of democratic consolidation of the power, business and public organizations on the basis of a community of interests at the solution of actual problems of development of the territorial communities.
On this basis there is a possibility of local civil groups to influence local policy, to defend the rights and legitimate interests of citizens. Initial level of democratic consolidation in communities of Nikolaev, Snigirevki, Voznesensk, New Bug is reached.
