Research of practices

Participants of the conference have several examples of cross-sectorial cooperation. This practices are examined by a researcher, Jonathan Robertson, and will be presented at the conference, together with his input.

Viška hiška

Viška hiška is a good example of cross-sectorial cooperation and volunteering actions in the City of Ljubljana.

In 2013, Slovene Philanthropy turned to the Municipality of Ljubljana in search of a new space for work. The Municipality offered us a house in the Ljubljana borough of Vič, to use free of charge.

An almost entirely decrepit house was previously scheduled for demolition and unsuitable for use without a substantial investment in its renovation. The idea, which would be the solution for our expanding organization, became a community project with the name of Viška hiška (Vič house) after careful consideration.
