Community on the Web
Duration of the case: 4 months (spring 2006 - summer 2006) Prepared by: Norbert Vrabec Citizen Action, Slovakia June 2006
The main goal of the project was to create a new website www.klokocina.sk that could serve the local community of the Klokočina neighborhood in Nitra, Slovakia. Nitra is located 85 km from Bratislava with the population of 90 000 inhabitants. The Klokočina neighborhood is the biggest neighborhood in the city. About 33 000 people live in high rise buildings.
In spite of this high concentration of people, local citizens did not have any source of information (local newspaper, radio, TV, etc.) This project significantly improved citizens' awareness of community life and contributed to their active participation in decision making processes.
