Ignite is a global event characterized by holding fast and short presentations, with the aim to inspire and present new ideas to the audience in an informal setting. First held in Seattle in 2006, it soon became global, which made it a movement. Today, its fast and dynamic way of presenting ideas is being practiced in more than 100 cities around the world.
Right for Moms! campaign aims to ease the payment of maternity benefits, for mothers as well as their employers. The goal of the campaign is that working mothers regularly receive their benefits during the maternity leave, by receiving the payment from the budget of the Republic of Serbia directly to their own bank accounts and not through the accounts of their employers.
There is a problem in my community, and I want to solve it! CSO Serbia on the Move was based on the idea that the citizens should take control over their own lives. In the first year of its existence, we supported a dozen of projects with participation of more than a thousand citizens of our city. For active problem solving to become a practice, we aim our activities at educating the citizens on how to get organized and solve a problem together.
Fighting for a better health care system in Serbia and fighting against corruption in health care are some of the main foci of Serbia on the Move’s activities. The general aim of the project is to enhance the quality of health care by ensuring a decrease in its corruption using investigative journalism, internet and social media for informing the citizens on the topic of corruption, and also mobilizing them to report corruption and demand transparency in work from both health workers and health institutions.
Serbia on the Move developed its own model of social enterprise in order to secure the funds for supporting various civic activities, but also to achieve greater autonomy and independence in its work. That is how we created Iskra (Spark), the chocolate with the taste of true values.
Serbia on the Move continues the fight for better health care system in Serbia and fight against corruption through the project and campaign called “What’s your doctor like?”. Project’s main idea is creating a direct and free communication channel between doctors and their patients.
How? Every patient can create an account on the www.kakavjedoktor.org website where they will be able to rate doctor’s conduct towards the patient and to comment the health service they received. Every doctor can create and edit their own profile on the same website, monitor their ratings, read comments of their patients and reply to them.
