RECOV : A workshop on cross-sectorial partnership in Uzice

On Friday, 7 June 2019, in the City Development Centre hall in Uzice, a workshop on Cross-Sectoral Partnerships - Their Role in the Development of Citizens’ and Local Communities’ Participation was held, under the project Rethinking Collaborative Values for Public Services – RECOV.
Gordana Savic, Coordinator of the Uzice Centre for Human Rights and Democracy, talked about the importance of partnerships in the local community, providing explanation for the types and forms of partnerships in local communities, such as modalities of organization of citizens in a particular geographic region. She accentuated that various local stakeholders gather around common interests and needs that are fulfilled through the public, the private and the civil sector. The aforementioned sectors are based on three key rights which are in the essence of the local communities’ relations as well: the right of choice (public sector), the right of investment (private and civil sector), and the right of association (civil sector).
After she shared her knowledge, she shared her experience and best practices from working with stakeholders from all sectors and concluded that partnerships established on common needs, which implies close collaboration of related actors, common rights and responsibilities, voluntary participation of partners, clearly defined expectations (game rules) and trust, finally lead to development. “As long as our interests match, we have reason to be part of a community, for collaboration provides more successful goals realization and above all, greater credibility,” outlined Savic.
This workshop was organized in the framework of the project RECOV: REthinking COllaborative Values for Public Services, supported by the European programme Europe for Citizens.
