Citizen consultations are an important part of the Small Grant Facility (SGF) programme, with grantees performing consultations with local citizens within their projects. This was explained at the beginning of the Fifth Meeting of the National PAR Working Group in North Macedonia held on 22 August 2020 over Zoom.

Julijana Karai from the EPI gave a presentation on European Citizens Consultations, while Angel Mojsovski presented the current research results and findings of the WEBER 2.0 Project.

Kristina Dimovska from the Ministry of Information Society and Administration presented the Draft-Annual Report on the Implementation of the AP from the PAR Strategy 2018-2022 and Vesna Bochvarska and Iskra Belcheva from the Center for Change Management talked about key PAR priority topics identified at the WeBER Platform meeting by core members in North Macedonia.

A Loomio discussion has been implemented by sharing proposals for voting for, and rating, key PAR priority topics by participants of the NWG in North Macedonia. The selected key PAR priorities will be part of the forthcoming call for proposals for the SGF.
