The Municipality of Hrastnik will, on 27 November, host the second of the three-week mentorships under the auspices of the project ‘Post-conflict reconstruction in Ukraine’.

We begin the second mentorship enthusiastically due to the positive experience during the first mentorship visit, and we look forward to hosting representatives of Drohobych in Slovenia.

The second mentorship will focus on the needs expressed by the Drohobych municipality (housing, waste management and economic rebuilding with the help of tourism) as well as addressing topics crucial for further development of the municipality, such as project management, project writing and topics related to EU enlargement process on the local level.

Hrastnik municipality, with its experience in the establishment of housing cooperatives as one of the solutions to housing problems and cooperation in the waste management centre CEROZ Zasavje, offers knowledge not only through the presentation of good practices but also through site visits of stakeholders involved in the housing and waste management system. 

In the next weeks, representatives of Drohobych will explore more about project planning, preparation and management, project funding, preparation of housing strategies and alternative housing models and waste management on the local level through interactive workshops and site visits.


The ‘Post-conflict reconstruction in Ukraine’ project is funded by the Slovenian Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs through the Slovenian Aid and Partnerships and implemented in partnership with ‘U-LEAD with Europe’. U-LEAD with Europe programme is a partnership of the Ukrainian government and the European Union, and its member states Germany, Sweden, Poland and Slovenia to support the establishment of multi-level governance that is transparent, accountable and responsive to the needs of the population of Ukraine.
