For the past six months 12 sub-grantees of the project “CSOs for making local democracy work” have been actively implementing their projects in liaison with Macedonian local authorities.
During this period, more than 50 activities were carried out in 12 communities with the direct participation of more than 1000 citizens of all ages, representatives of local self-governments, members of civil society organizations. Each activity of this three-year project is expected to develop actions to encourage networking and exchange of best practices between civil society organizations and local authorities in Macedonia.

Within this context, the Youth Council in Prilep, working together with the Municipality of Krushevo created and adopted a “Local Youth Strategy”, to be implemented in the mentioned municipality. In the meantime, the Association ISIE created the website “Referendum” in an effort to arouse citizens’ interest on the topic. ZG Veles Biking, in partnership with the municipalities of Veles and Gradsko, organized bike tours in order to discourage children from using technological devices. Moreover, the Rural Coalition – Kumanovo and the Municipality of Staro Nagorichane signed the Memorandum of Cooperation for the implementation of their project.
That’s only a part of the successful stories that originated from the sub-grantees’ projects. More information of the projects and activities themselves is available on the CSOs for making local democracy work website, where there is a section dedicated to the Sub-granting Scheme as well as the profiles of the social networks of the project.
