Programme Development of the European Centre for Cross-Sector Partnership – IMPACT
Project descriptionCross-sector partnership is a concept that has become essential in defining socio-economic development, environmental protection and corporate social responsibility, stressing the need for involvement of the private sector and civil society in social development and social cohesion issues. Despite many improvements in the recent years, cross-sector partnership approach to development in Croatia still remains very limited, mainly due to the lack of communication and understanding between the actors in different sectors and limited skills and mechanisms to facilitate this interaction and cooperation among the three sectors.
This is why the European Centre for Cross-sector Partnership – IMPACT – has been opened by the Foundation in Zadar, with a purpose of providing civil, public and private sector actors with a blend of professional development and training opportunities offered throughout the year and promoting the exchange of know-how and best practices in the field of cross-sector partnerships.
The purpose of the project is to further develop the programme of the IMPACT Centre, strengthen its organizational capacities and introduce the programme agenda to potential partners, target groups and the wider public.
Specific objectives of the project all lead to the creation of positive socio-economic effects and improvement of the capabilities of local authorities, civil society actors and business leaders to engage in meaningful partnerships for development:
