What is “Doma”?
Protection of the environment is one of the biggest challenges faced by Macedonia and the region. The lack of verified, accurate and precise information, quality analysis, debate, as well as responsibility from the relevant institutions was the reason to create #Doma.
#Doma is an environmental, educational, online platform of the Institute for Communication Studies through which we research, analyze, inform and educate on topics related to environment, biodiversity, sustainable practices and environmental awareness.
The purpose of #Doma is to inform and educate about the protection of the environment and biodiversity, to instigate debate and motivate the citizens to be actively involved, and to put pressure on the institutions for the purpose of problem solving. #Doma will also require answers from the relevant institutions, which will give them the opportunity to demonstrate their accountability and transparency and will contribute towards more informed and actively engaged citizens.
The environmental issues, as well as nature itself, know no political boundaries. #Doma will explore the natural values as well as the natural hazards and threats at regional level, in cooperation with all Balkan countries and beyond.
