Through the opening of this program, CTC Rijeka shows developmental orientation and a new step toward sustainability. During 2010/2011, CTC Rijeka has become actively involved in the creation process of the Social Entrepreneurship Forum, a national network of organizations, institutions and experts in the field of eco-social economy. By acting together we are trying to create an encouraging environment for social entrepreneurship and other forms of entrepreneurship based on sustainable development.

 

CTC Rijeka is actively participating in the creation of a network of regional resource centers for social enterprises encompassing the area of Primorsko-Goranska and Istria County. The next important pillar for the development of an eco-social economy is creating a resource center as part of the national network of resource centers. Namely, CTC Rijeka is one of the founders and stakeholders of CEDRA – Cluster for Eco-social Innovations and Development and as CEDRA Rijeka, holder of the developmental program for Primorsko-Goranska and Istria County.

 

In addition to the resource center, CTC Rijeka is actively developing its own models of social employment and social entrepreneurship through which it seeks to create new job positions for socially marginalized groups and at the same time independently acquire income that will, in the long run, ensure the sustainability of the organization and programs.
