Civil society development

CIVIL SOCIETY DEVELOPMENT

Cooperation is an important driver and the foundation of our action. We contribute to the development of civil society in the environmental protection sector and other sectors through numerous activities that we carry out in cooperation with associations, institutions and organizations at the local, national and international level.

We are involved in the work of numerous networks of associations. We get involved in the work of networks by engaging in the management structures of networks, exchanging information, knowledge and experience, a unique approach to issues of common interest, those related to the areas of work of Sunce and the work of civil society organizations.

We are actively involved in the adoption and monitoring of the implementation of numerous strategic and planning documents at the national and local levels, related to the development of civil society, such as the National Strategy for Creating a Stimulating Environment for the Development of Civil Society.

Our employees participate in the work of numerous working groups and bodies at the local and national levels, through which they strive to contribute to environmental protection and sustainable development and by contributing through their engagement to the development of participatory democracy.

We provide support to numerous local associations and civic initiatives in their efforts aimed at protecting the environment but also organizing their own activities.

Through the implementation of our activities, we directly contribute to education and information about the importance and role of public participation, the importance of civic engagement, especially among young people through their direct involvement in volunteering and socially useful learning.

All these activities contribute to further strengthening and development of civil society in Croatia.
