An association of citizens that seeks to support the transformation of society towards achieving environmental and digital goals, as an imperative for further development and adaptation to the revolution of the modern age. Progress in these fields can only be achieved by respecting the goals of sustainable development and the green economy, which are the remaining two areas of the organization’s work. A team composed of people with experience in the non-governmental sector through cooperation and work with other actors, as well as key decision makers in the Republic of Serbia, wants to contribute to information, education and practical knowledge in these areas.
As a society that has not yet unlocked all the potentials that digitalization offers, GED strives to contribute to the transition to digitalization in the Republic of Serbia through project activities. Full digitalization can be achieved with the simultaneous transformation of the economy, which would respect all environmental standards and be in line with the goals of sustainable development.
Achieving standardization and transformation of our society contributes to the development and preservation of democratic values.
Achieving these goals, for which the Association stands, can be achieved only by acting together with other actors on the social scene.
