What do we mean by Civic engagement?

Civic engagement regards the commitment of an individual with the ‘interests, goals, concerns and common good of a specific community’. It has to do with civic knowledge and sensibility/feelings of solidarity, while civic participation relates to activities that aim at increasing social inclusion and the enhancement of solidarity between citizens and (ethnic and social) groups in society.
