Should public activists and volunteers register a non-profit organization? This subject was discussed by the participants of the online meeting, which was held on the initiative of the School of Public Action, a project implemented by the St. Andrew the First-Called Foundation with the support of the Istoki Endowment Fund.

The participants of the discussion argued that the registration of an independent non-profit organization provides additional opportunities for effective social activities.
