The civil society due to its transformational dynamism is a major driver of the emergence of cooperative, sharing, and genuinely sustainable knowledge society. Historically the civil society is simultaneously the domain and the outcome of the civil activism. This activism interplays with the dynamism of civil society, capitalizes on and catalyses its transformational character. This transformational capacity provides the civil society organizations’ potential to facilitate changes in the broader environment, creates their capability to affect and shape the resultant pattern of interplay between digitalization and the approximation among the societal macro-sectors by enhancing their association-prone character.
