CROSOL Platform members discuss EU presidency priorities

Members of CROSOL gathered in Zagreb to discuss ways of collaboration for the EU Presidency project and to plan joint activities. Croatia will preside the European Union for the first time in 2020. This is a challenge for the Government, as well as for the national CSOs. Croatian civil society organizations will work on defining their priorities for the Presidency, based on consultations with Croatian citizens. During the first internal meeting of CROSOL members, three potential priorities were narrowed down: shrinking of the civic space and EU values, EU enlargement and Agenda 2030. Those priorities will be discussed with the citizens and other CSOs across Croatia to reach more focused demands. The monitoring system for the EU and national government preparations for the Presidency has been agreed and planned during the meeting.
