We are PDCS. We help people and organizations to grow and enjoy the change.

Our mission is to educate people and help them to reach a consensus directly, to engage them in public decision-making processes, to understand the distinct worlds people live in, and to cope with the changes around us. We try to keep people talking. We are a non-governmental organization from Slovakia, which is where we do most of our work. However, our activities and projects transcend Slovakia’s boundaries, as they reach pan-European dimensions. We are also part of the global Partners Network - 22 organizations from Europe, Asia, Africa, North America, and Latin America that are connected by the values of democracy and non-violence.

_We are PDCS._ We help people and organizations to grow and enjoy the change.

“For as long as I have been following you, you have been giving me good reasons to think.”

Our history

Our story in three chapters

Throughout its history, PDCS - Partners for Democratic Change Slovakia has changed along with Slovak society as well as the surrounding world. Our programs, countries of operation, clients, and ways of funding have changed; our team of people has been growing and developing. What remains unchanged, however, is our loyalty to our fundamental values - the belief that democracy means open dialogue, non-violence, and a multicolor focus in all its meanings.
