This is not about creating new, unfunctional councils, but creating a unique body, the sustainability of which will be provided by responsible and motivated members who will cooperate, learn, exchange ideas and information, research requirements based on which they will make plans and deliver conclusions, guidelines, recommendations and a common action plan stated Ivan Ĺ˝ivkovi?, the Project Coordinator.
