CIVINET Slovenia - Croatia - South East Europe
Network of cities and other stakeholders involved in sustainable mobility planning and management in Slovenia and Croatia, as well as in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, North Macedonia and Serbia. The aim of the network is to transfer knowledge and good practice and to design joint projects that will finance future activities of sustainable transport and better mobility. The network was established in Ljubljana on April 25, 2013 as the CIVINET Slovenia-Croatia network. By the decision of the Assembly, the network was renamed CIVINET Slovenia-Croatia-Southeast Europe on February 10, 2016.
Networking and all forms of connection are welcome for more efficient solution of transport problems, from the exchange of experiences, knowledge and ideas to the joint participation and synergy of cities, which enables better use of European funds.
CIVINET networks have also been established in other parts of the EU (German-speaking, Spain and Portugal, Italy, the Netherlands and Flanders, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Romania, Finland and Greece and Cyprus) and are supported by the European Commission.
The CIVINET Slovenia-Croatia-SEE network gathers over 215 members and is the most numerous European CIVINET network. The network is also very active, holding at least two workshops a year, organizing study trips and regularly informing members, other interested stakeholders and the media via e-newsletter.
The Network’s management bodies: General Assembly, Political Committee, Management Committee, Academic Committee, Network Secretariat. The Network is managed by the Management Committee, representatives of the cities form the Political Committee, and important decisions for the operation of the Network are made by the Assembly. The Political Committee adopts annual statements, which announce the direction of the Network. The Academic Committee provides support in considering the course of action and encourages joint applications of scientific and professional projects.
