President Josipović Holds Meeting on Foundation of New Vukovar School

31.07.2014.

A meeting dedicated to the foundation of the New Vukovar School was held in the Office of the President with the participation of the President of the Republic, a delegation of the Nansen Dialogue Centre from Osijek, representatives of the Embassy of the Kingdom of Norway to the Republic of Croatia, as well as representatives of the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports led by Minister Vedran Mornar.

The project of the New Vukovar School came into being as a response to the problem and adverse consequences of the ethnically divided educational system. The objective of the project which the Nansen Dialogue Centre has striven to implement ever since 2003 is to establish the first integrated school in Vukovar fulfilling the needs of children, parents and teachers, offering to new generations modern and high quality education based on European values of integration of differences and peaceful co-existence of citizens of different ethnic backgrounds. The Kingdom of Norway, where the Nansen Dialogue Network was established, long ago showed interest in providing funding for the project, and in early 2014 a contract was signed with the Ministry of Science on the establishment of the school, for which a donation of 1.3 million euros was approved in the first stage.

Participants of the meeting informed the President of the current status of the process within the Ministry, as well as the status of negotiations with the local community, which should result in the selection of the building and foundation of the school at the beginning of the school year 2015/2016. President Josipović, who has extended his strong support to the New School project since the outset, expressed hope that the New School will offer parents an additional option of the educational programme for their children with the view of fostering better mutual respect and development of common values of different ethnic communities living in Vukovar.
