International Conference:
“Securing Sustainable Development for NGOs in the Heart of Europe”

May 10, 2012, 10.00–17.00
National Technical Library, Prague

Recently, the situation in the non-profit sector has been characterized by a stronger need to use available resources efficiently and to search for alternative methods for securing the continued operation of non-governmental organizations. This international conference was focused on all NGO professionals and volunteers, who were provided with up-to-date information presented in the European context; they were offered a space for exchanging experiences and an opportunity to get to know the environment and status of NGO developments in other Visegrad countries – Slovakia, Hungary and Poland.
