Local Community Development Foundation Shtip is organizing networking event “Citizen participation – practices and challenges of the Eastern Region”. The event will be held on 17.12.2019 (Tuesday) from 12.00 in Hotel Oaza-Stip.
The networking event will focus on citizen participation on local level and mechanisms for citizens’ active participation in decision-making processes. The event is part of the project “Effective mechanism for civic participation”, supported by USAID Civic Engagement Project.
The networking event will bring together municipal councils (involved and not involved in the project activities) and the CSOs. On the events the participants will have opportunity to share experience, opportunities and obstacles in the process of functioning of Local Government Units (LGUs) and citizen participation in decision making processes. The CSOs will have opportunity to promote their work and share the findings and recommendations from the performed monitoring. Open space for other topics connected with the good governance will be provided for the interested participants.
The annual networking event will serve to share positive experiences and to evaluate the project progress. In addition, it will identify the needs and concerns of local stakeholders for improving the principles of good governance.
