On 4th and 5th of February, in Belgrade, the Western Balkan CSOs Global Development Partner and Strategy Meeting took place. The two-day annual partner strategy meeting brought together CSO representatives of each partner country, in order to refine the strategy for implementation of the project, as well as to exchange information and enhance knowledge on relevant topics related to development cooperation and CSO platform building. The project objectives are: to strengthen Western Balkans’ civil society and its involvement in efforts towards global poverty eradication and global justice, and to mobilize and support CSOs to work together to raise public awareness in EU candidate countries of the need for education and engagement in the international development agenda. BCSDN members Civic Initiatives (Serbia), MCIC (Macedonia), CRNVO (Montenegro) and IDM Albania are partners in the project. While HORIZONT 3000 (Austria) is the project coordinator, BCSDN will serve as a regional coordinator. More information is available here.
