Slovenian NGOs Set up a Web Portal during the Slovenian Presidency of the EU
In the framework of Slovenian Presidency of the EU (1 January 2008 - 30 June 2008), a group of Slovenian NGOs and other civil society organizations set up a web portal with an aim to improve their own involvement in the Presidency. The project is supported by the Slovenian Ministry of Public Administration and the Government Communication Office. Activities related to the involvement of Slovenian NGOs and other civil society organizations into (preparation of) the Presidency were commenced at the beginning of 2006, while the portal is only one model of their inclusion and cooperation with the Government.
The portal provides information about the European Union and the Presidency, and opportunities for Slovenian and European NGOs and other civil society organizations to participate in the decision-making processes. Moreover, it facilitates communication between civil society and Slovenian, European and global mass media, and enables networking of Slovenian civil society with other European factors. The portal also offers opportunities of e-participation in various actions, petitions, surveys and discussions, while it also contains some useful web addresses of various Slovenian and European NGOs. At the same time, it provides very clearly the content of all events relevant to NGOs that will take place during the Presidency.
