Third training-block of “School for good governance and participatory development” held

On 3rd and 4th of December 2015 third two-day training block of "School for good governance and participatory development" was held, in the framework of the project "For good governance at local level: education, support and promotion". 26 representatives from the areas of four counties participated; Sisak-Moslavina County, Šibenik-Knin County, Zagreb County and the City of Zagreb.

First day of the training visions were created, using special methodology in which joint vision of all the participants is developed from personal visions. We also reminded ourselves of the second training, project ideas we jointly shared and application of project ideas.

Second day of the training Siniša Bukal presented the work of LAG Zrinska gora - Turopolje. Participants asked a few questions about the previous experiences of LAGs and challenges they faced, which resulted in a short discussion about similar experiences and methods used by other LAGs.

Presentation of participants' project ideas

After presented example of intersectoral developmental partnership we started with presentation of project ideas which were collected through online form before the training. Proposers of nine project ideas presented their project.

The idea was for proposers to shortly describe area of activity, short description of the problem, aim of the project, target group, desirable partners on the project and the summary of the project.

After the presentation of all the project ideas, participants chose four ideas they liked most. They chose the group in which they will continue to work i.e. on which project they wish to participate as representatives of the potential partner.

In further analysis of chosen project ideas participants in four groups discussed about the project users - target group and end users, partners and associates, and they conceived names of their projects.

Proposers of the project ideas were: City of Sisak, Association of Women Međurić, City of Zagreb, Association of Persons with Disabilities of Sisak-Moslavina County, NGO ZvoniMir, Ivka Nikolić Jež - City of Popovača, City of Drniš, City of Šibenik, LAG Krka.

Names of the project ideas are:

  1. "Female hands" - City of Sisak, Association of Women Međurić, proposers
  2. "Hey man - get involved" - Association of Persons with Disabilities of Sisak-Moslavina County, proposers
  3. "Strengthening of capacities of members and population of the area LAG Krka"
  4. " Through support to independent living" - City of Zagreb, proposer

Until the next training-block, planned for the beginning of the year 2016, project groups will continue with the analysis of project ideas and will be given a task of further elaboration of project proposal.
