The eighth round of Partnership for Change, a national platform for cooperation between employees of the private and public sectors initiated by AmCham Slovenija and the Public Administration Ministry, has launched. Three projects have been picked to be tackled next year through cooperation.

Public Administration Minister Boštjan Koritnik said he was proud that the ministry and AmCham Slovenia had managed to create a national platform of cooperation among staff that is to help tackle different challenges and encourage the building of a better society. “I wish that in the future the platform becomes a place where individuals can show their innovation, openness and courage, so that people can join us in building a better future,” Koritnik was quoted as saying by the ministry.

The Partnership for Change remains a project intended for organisations that want to exchange know-how, lead an open dialogue and create a better living and working environment in Slovenia, the ministry said. Ajša Vodnik, CEO of AmCham Slovenija and vice president of AmChams in Europe, said that not every challenge could be solved in full but a big step was already to start talking about it and creating a culture of dialogue.

A total of 11 projects have applied to a call for applications for challenges to be tackled within the platform and three have been picked for next year. The first focuses on the Ljubljana kindergarten Ledina, the second on the importance of ICT experts for a green and digital society and the third on promoting local companies among the young in the Kočevje municipality.
