In 2014, the Civic Empowerment Index was measured for the seventh time. It revealed that the Lithuanian civic power had come back to the level of 2008-2009 after a few years of a slight growth: the mean value of the Civic Empowerment Index in 2014 was 34,0 points out of 100 (in 2013 it was 36,0). On the other hand, there was more civic potential accumulated in the Lithuanian schools: in comparison with the previous years, the civic power of the Lithuanian pupils had grown from 47,6 in 2012 to 52,4 in 2014, whereas the civic power of the Lithuanian teachers had remained high – in 2009 it was 47,8 and in 2014 – 48,1 points.
In 2012, the Civic Empowerment Index research was conducted as part of the project “Creating Republic: fostering competences of the society’s civic activeness” which was financed by the European Social fund and the Lithuanian Republic budget.
The survey was carried out by the public opinion and market research centre “Vilmorus”.
