It has been around twenty years since the break-up of Yugoslavia, yet the national communities of former Yugoslavia do not have an official minority group status which would provide them with specific collective rights. Instead they have to deal with factors that hinder their proactive participation in public life. To improve the situation for these groups, a Slovenian organisation is using innovative theater methods to mobilise the society. The project is funded by the EEA Grants and the NGO Programme in Slovenia.
The southwestern part of Slovenia is home to a unique lake which changes from a dry flat karst plain to the largest lake surface in Slovenia throughout the year. In fact, it is also the largest disappearing lake in the world. A lake with such unique features has of course influence the way of life around the lake. An EEA and Norway Grants project contributed to preserving this.
The Slovenian NGO 'Kings of the Street' is working in the field of homelessness and social inclusion. In the previous funding round of the EEA Grants they implemented a project to improve the situation of homless people in Slovenia together with a Norwegian partner.
