NGOs in Croatia generally have little knowledge about the process and content of the Conference on the future of Europe. In addition to several dozen NGOs that are strongly involved in the preparation and implementation of policies at national level and several NGOs at EU level, most Croatian NGOs have not developed the ability to participate in discussions that determine our future.


The main goal of the project is to encourage up to 300 smaller NGOs to start the process of engagement within the framework of the Conference over the next two years. This will improve democratization and support citizens’ engagement in determining the future of Europe. EU and EP values will be highlighted during discussions on specific issues to be identified when the Conference is opened and all details are known.
