New Ideas for Local Communities - Certificate Award Ceremony for the Successful Implementation of Socially Innovative Projects of LSG

  • Ćuprija, 7 June 2021

The Swiss PRO Programme organizes a ceremony to award certificates for the successful implementation of socially innovative projects of local self-governments in partnership with civil society organizations under the Call for Proposals entitled "New Ideas for Local Communities".

The event scheduled to begin at 12:00 on Thursday, 10 June 2021, will be held in Ćuprija, in compliance with all the prescribed measures.

The Swiss Government, through the Swiss PRO Programme, provides special support for the promotion of social inclusion and the improvement of the status of vulnerable groups in local communities, to which the results of eight projects implemented within this public call have also made a great contribution. The significance of such support for both the development of local policies and the implementation of specific social inclusion measures at the local level will be highlighted at the event.

The event will be attended by representatives of the Ministry of Labour, Employment, Veteran and Social Affairs, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS), as well as representatives of all supported local self-governments and partner civil society organizations.
