Second local meeting, within the project ELAIN, was held on Thursday, 24th of July 2014., in the City Assembly of Novi Sad.
The idea for this meeting, organized by the City Administration for Environmental Protection, was to conjunct two projects whit similar goals.
City of Novi Sad is currently working on creating Environmental Protection Program for the City of Novi Sad. In this phase of creating the Program we identify problems in the fields of environmental protection. Since these problems are also very important for project ELAIN we presented them to participants and had open discussion. The next step is finding best solutions for these problems through goals that we set together.
The meeting between the representatives of the City of Novi Sad, non-governmental organizations and volunteers involved in the environmental protection, as the first step in the project ELAIN - Environmental Local Authorities Interbalkan Network, was held in the City Assembly of Novi Sad today.
The project is a result of signing of the “Memorandum of Understanding on Interbalkan Cooperation in the Field of Environmental Protection“ between the City of Novi Sad and the Association of Environmental Protection of the City of Athens and Piraeus. One of the goals of the Memorandum is the planning and implementation of programs of a common framework of action by using more technologically advanced and innovative applications for solving problems in the field of environmental protection.
