The project „Live equality, celebrate diversity!“ addresses lack of civil society organisations (CSOs) able to be force of change in the promotion and protection of the human rights in Sisak and Sisak-Moslavina County (SMC) area. Lack of recognition and sustainability of the CSOs working on integration, leads to discontinuity of the migrants’ integration programs, lack of understating of the European values and the CSOs’ role in democratic society development, and fewer opportunities of citizens’ participation and civil society development. Small number of the CSOs in the SMC active in peace culture development and human rights protection, additionally makes promotion and protection of these values in the local community even harder.
The project brings solutions at the three interconnected levels:
1) Strengthening CSOs and public initiations advocacy capacities on the European values, democracy and the role of the civil society in the society;
2) Public campaign on the CSOs work in SMC and their importance in building solidary and inclusive community, by which the citizens will be introduced with concrete activities of the CSOs active in advocating human rights, European values and migrants’ integration in the community life; and
3) Advocacy campaign directed to the Sisak City Council on declaring official the Sisak Diversity Day.
