Analytical Brief 6 - How popular are the Volunteering and Participatory Activities among Moldovans?
The importance of volunteering and participatory activities is crucial, as these activities ensure the involvement of community members in the settlement of some stringent social problems in areas where the private initiative or Government policies are insufficient or inefficient. There are plenty of such problems in the Republic of Moldova, in particular at the local level, where the importance of active involvement of community members is indispensable. In order to find answers to these questions, we will use the results of the Time Use Survey, carried out by the National Bureau of Statistics. In this note, we will answer the following questions:
- What forms and how often the volunteering is practiced in Moldova, as compared with other European countries?
- Who are more involved in volunteering activities and public meetings: men or women?
- People with a higher or lower level of education?
- With higher or lower income?
