Supporting civic commitment and fostering the interaction of many actors on the ground - that's what the "Committed City (Engagierte Stadt)" program stands for. Like all other cities joining the program, Heidelberg aims to continuously improve the conditions for civic commitment and to shed a light on the various people and projects involved.
Heidelberg has been part of the network program of committed cities in Germany since May 2021. The network offers ideal framework conditions for civic commitment and participation and is constantly trying to reach out and further develop. 
Heidelbergs civic commitment is build on strong pillars:
The volunteer agency FreiwilligenAgentur Heidelberg, the Stadtjugendring Heidelberg e.V. (Roof Association of Heidelberg Youth Associations), the Sportkreis Heidelberg e.V. (Roof organisation of the Heidelberg sports clubs) and the Coordination Office for Civic Commitment in the Mayor´s Office of the City of Heidelberg joined forces to promote and expand civic commitment.
