Croatia’s National Foundation for Civil Society Development was officially launched in Zagreb on 2 June in the presence of the Croatian Vice Prime Minister and over 300 invited guests. A presentation of the Foundation’s programme included two international projects that it is implementing – one in cooperation with the Delegation of the European Commission to the Republic of Croatia as part of the CARDS 2002 programme, the other in cooperation with the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID).
After the presentations, awards were presented to the mayors of 15 towns for examples of good practice in cooperation with civil society organizations and citizens. As part of the project it is implementing with DFID, the Foundation invited all towns in Croatia to report examples of good practice in this area. The 15 most successful of the 44 applicant towns received 30,000 kunas for further improvement of the cooperation that already exists.
