About project

blok korica

In December 2012 the Centre for Civic Education (CCE) started to implement the project “EU Info Bus – on the road to the EU!” that is carried out in cooperation with the Friedrich Ebert Foundation and the NGO Natura and it is supported by the European Union through the EU Delegation to Montenegro and its communication budget.
The project aims to increase capacities of local communities and organizations in Montenegro in the view of contributing to reinforce long lasting effects of the European integration process. More specifically, the projects strives to increase knowledge and degree of understanding of the EU accession process in Montenegro through an educational-informative campaign which is carried out in six municipalities of the Central Region of Montenegro, i.e. Podgorica, Nikšić, Danilovgrad, Cetinje, Kolašin and Mojkovac.
Target groups are citizens of these six municipalities, whose knowledge and active support to the integration process is fundamental for the success of the process itself, and a special focus is given to young generations, students and pupils. Final beneficiaries are all citizens of Montenegro which will enjoy better information and will get ready to actively take part in the process and give their contribution to a full membership of Montenegro into the European Union.
The project “EU Info Bus-on the road to the EU!” seeks to act on two levels of the current challenges. On one side, it aims to inform citizens of the six Montenegrin municipalities by providing locally-relevant, tailored and targeted information. On the other side, the involvement of local authorities, local civil society organisations and media strives to establish a long-lasting cooperation and exchange of information and experience among local authorities, representatives of the civil sector, media and citizens. This will represent a fundamental step forward in the active participation of citizens in the process of EU integration, in particular bearing in mind that the success of the process itself requires full awareness and support of the citizens of Montenegro.
A particular focus will be given to the accession negotiation process as the most demanding and complex part of this European path. It is fundamental to present to citizens the negotiation process in an adequate way that allows them to understand the essence and basis of the process and the advantages arising with EU membership, but also to have clear in mind the obligations and responsibilities that we face along the way. Citizens must be aware of the changes expecting Montenegro in the forth-coming years and how this will affect their daily lives. Integration of Montenegro into the European Union can be successful only if the overall process reaches a high level of understanding and acceptance with active participation of all actors involved.
In the light of the above, we plan several educative and informative activities.
In particular, the key activity is the EU Info Bus, which travels to each six municipalities in the period of February-June 2013: in each municipality the bus will be located in the main square from 11h00 to 14h00 and it will represent the focal point for further activities on EU integration: EU Info stands will be set up with educational materials, quiz, games and promotional materials available to interested citizens. Moreover, in cooperation with municipalities and local partners, we are organizing panel discussions about interesting topics particularly relevant for each municipality. Topics are selected on the basis of a previous research and under suggestions from local administration. As communication is a two-way process, it is key to receive feedbacks from different groups and to establish a good cooperation with them.
In order to educate younger generation, within the activities of the project, we will visit high schools and universities of the six municipalities and we will broadcast the 487284 436897459720475 2103915503 n1first documentary film in Montenegro on European Integration entitled “Europe in my town”. On this occasion, panel discussions will be organised on different topics that will see participation of several experts for each area. In this way, young people will further receive detailed information on the integration.
Following tools were created and developed in order to allow citizens to continuously inform themselves on the EU integration: the website European corner, evropskikutak.me, where all news and information on the process of integration will be made available, the European pulse, the first and only monthly magazine about the process of European integration in Montenegro, and the publication “O čemu pregovaramo i šta nam pregovori sa EU donose?” (What are we negotiating about and what does the negotiation process bring to us?). In this regard, with the aim of increasing interest of journalists in Montenegro to report all aspects of the negotiation process of Montenegro with the European Union in an adequate, professional and research-based way, we will open a contest on the best-journalistic pieces on this subject and we will award the best journalists on the occasion of the marking of the Europe Day.
Within the activities of the project, we will celebrate the 9 May – Europe Day in the municipalities of Podgorica, Cetinje and Kolašin with several different activities. Celebration will be carried out in cooperation with the EU Delegation to Montenegro, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and European Integration, local authorities, universities and several other partners.
The results that will be achieved through implementation of the project’s activities are: increased knowledge of citizens of six municipalities of Montenegro on European Union, its values, principles, culture, political development and on the process of EU integration of Montenegro; established platform of cooperation among local governments through joint efforts to promote awareness and knowledge on the EU integration in six municipalities; improved access to relevant information on EU and its activities in Montenegro and on the activities carried out by Montenegro in the path towards EU membership.
