Invitation to NGO Days 2011

The Office for Cooperation with NGOs of the Government of the Republic of Croatia is organising NGO Days 2011, in cooperation with TACSO (Office for Technical Assistance for Civil Society Organisations) and the Foundation for Partnership and Civil Society Development, which will be held at the Hotel Histria in Pula from 26th to 28th May 2011.

The theme of NGO Days 2011 is Civil Society in Croatia in 2016 – visions, strategies and actions. The aim of the meeting is to open the space for participants to engage in creative deliberation of proposals for the vision of civil society development in Croatia and contribute to the creation of the National Strategy and the Action Plan for the period from 2012 to 2016. The conference envisages using the Open Space Technology, enabling group discussion of complex issues and gathering significant results in a short period of time.
We would like to invite all parties which were involved in the making and implementation of the current National Strategy, as well as those who want to be involved in the development of the new Strategy to register their interest by filling out an application form by 5th May 2011. The number of participants is limited, with priority given to organisations which were involved in the making and implementation of the current National Strategy and representatives of NGO networks and organisations which have experience in implementing projects that support civil society organisations using public funds. In the selection process care will be taken to ensure regional and sectoral representation of organisations, while also carefully considering the quality of the motivation letter. Accommodation and catering will be provided for, as well as transport from Zagreb, Osijek, Rijeka and Split. Hotel reservations will be handled by the Foundation for Partnership and Civil Society Development. The application form, invitation and the programme can be found below.
