The new series of regional seminars within the framework of the Civic Lenses project, organized by CIVIL, starts this weekend in Stip. The first of the total of 8 seminars will be held on September 28 at Hotel Oaza, from 10am to 6pm.
The deadline for registering participation ends today at 5pm. Although the number of participants has long been exceeded, this is the last chance to apply, applications will be reviewed by a special commission composed of CIVIL’s team.
All interested citizens from the municipalities of the East Planning Region may apply: Berovo, Vinica, Delcevo, Zrnovci, Karbinci, Kocani, Makedonska Kamenica, Pehcevo, Probistip, Cesinovo-Oblesevo and Stip.
The Seminar “Civic Lenses: citizens participate, observe and report”, is a continuation of the seminars that CIVIL has organized in the last four years, but this time accompanied and upgraded with topics that promote transparent and responsible political processes.
The new series of regional seminars are in many ways different from the previous thirty such events. They are more dynamic and process many topics that are relevant to the socio-political situation and processes in the country. In any case, it is a matter of continuation, since CIVIL remains further dedicated to strengthening citizen participation, activism and citizen journalism, which promote transparent and responsible political processes that will be carried out across the country. The seminars are part of the project Civic Lenses: Promoting transparent and responsible political processes, financed by National Endowment for Democracy, which CIVIL is implementing for the fifth year in a row.
Ahead of the new challenges and projects, CIVIL has the need of expanding its collaboration network with new people, volunteers and freelance workers. One of the best ways for getting to know each other and starting cooperation are the seminars within CIVIL’s project “Civic Lenses: Promoting transparent and responsible political processes”. Many of those who are long-time members of CIVIL’s project teams have started the cooperation precisely with a CIVIL seminar.
