On the 16th of October 2018, Centre for Peace Osijek organized the first City walk, one of the activities of INTEGRA project. The first city walk was organized in the central area of Osijek, close to the train and bus station, sport’s hall and on the city street where Faculty of Law and Faculty of Economics are. Due to the beginning of the academic year, the visited area was vibrant and full of life. The walk itself was very informative, and due to a smaller number of participants, the atmosphere was more relaxed, open and, therefore, enabled more in-depth conversations amongst participants. The walks were attended by representatives of TCNs, the NGO sector and volunteers, which created a space for open discussions about the subject of integration from various perspectives.
On September 27th 2018, Center for Peace-Osijek organized a second meeting of SIG as part of the project of Integration of Third Country Nationals through Urban Partnerships – INTEGRA. Representatives of organizations and institutions of the local integration group – representatives of the City of Osijek, Breza association, Red Cross Osijek and Volunteer center Osijek took part in the meeting. On the meeting, both the results of activities done so far and plans for carrying out future activities were presented. The emphasis was on planning and organization of the integration laboratory. The organization itself is planned to be done in November. Representatives of the Center for Peace - Osijek presented conclusions of the coordination meeting concerning the outline of criteria for the plan of deployment of people who were granted international protection. The coordination meeting was organized by the Office for Human Rights and Rights of National Minorities and was held on September 21st 2018 in the City council.
