    Description

    Our organization was founded in Latinovac, Croatia, in 1995
    and received its legal status three years later in 1998. Through its existence, we had many goals, from peacebuilding and personal growth, to environmental
    activism and awareness raising.
    In the last seven years, our activities are mostly based on permaculture, development of local
    community, work with youth and volunteerism.

    All activities are based upon an educational and practical part, responding to the principle of
    lifelong learning.
    The goal our organization pursues is to contribute to the community development, connect
    and network with local people, create possibilities for better life and future, providing higher
    quality of living for all generations.

    Latinovac is a small village with 60 inhabitants, located in Slavonia region which is the eastern,
    continental part of Croatia. (Slavonia, not Slovenia :)
    Region of Slavonia is characterized by outstanding beautiful nature reserve and protected areas . The
    area has enormous potential for development of rural tourism, biking, hiking and education in
    sustainable and traditional practices.
    There are no street lights in the village; only shops we have are mobile shops few times per day, the
    closest regular shops, post office, pub and ambulance are in Čaglin, approximately 3km, within walking
    distance.
