Macedonian Center for International Cooperation issued the following announcement on Aug. 9.
"I feel the Civic Resource Center (GRE) as a unique space that offers the opportunity for CSOs to meet each other, with the citizens and with other parties to jointly create good changes . The possibility of free space for activities for civic organizations and their connection with the citizens is an important incentive for the development of the civil society, "said Viktor Mirchevski from the association Konekt.
Konekt was the first organization to organize its event in the resource center in Skopje. In the period from May to July 2018, about 15 organizations took the opportunity to conduct their events in the centers in Skopje, Stip and Gostivar .
In addition to civil society organizations, the premises are also available for state institutions, informal groups and activists to organize their events if the purpose and theme of the event is related to civil society. However, smaller civil society organizations that do not have their own offices or financial opportunities for renting space are an advantage.
Providing space for organizing events is a major issue for organizations, especially small ones working locally. GRE is making efforts to overcome this problem in Skopje, Stip and Gostivar by providing fully equipped premises for holding meetings, trainings, workshops, debates and other events.
This is just one of a series of activities that the GRE conducts to support organizations. GRE is a three year project funded by the European Union and implemented by the Macedonian Center for International Cooperation (MCIC) in partnership with the Association for Democratic Initiatives (ADI) from Gostivar and Media Plus from Stip.
