Education Development Centre ‘Planet’ is an association for development of education and promotion of science, which is done through the activation of children and the young through programmes and projects which develop creativity, critical thinking, scientific conscience, ecological conscience, social skills and responsibility.
Members of our association are teachers who work in primary and secondary schools, as well as other experts who work with children and the young. In our organization we make decisions as a team, on our meetings.
In our organization constantly work 10 young people and adults who are active on implementing programmes. Our professional circle is made of a great number of friends and colleagues who are willing to take part in our activities and contribute to our idea – non-formal education, active learning, personality development with children and the young and their right direction. We have a basis of more than 50 volunteers (15 – 30 year olds) who are engaged in our programmes – Fizi Bizi Fest and ‘Children’s science club’ (DNK).
As long as our organization exists, we established a great cooperation with different organizations in local community: local government, school administration, elemetary and high schools, NGO, Youth office, media, etc. We also have active cooperation with all primary and secondary schools in Sombor as well as with Pedagogic faculty and special school ‘Vuk Karadzic’. Also through our programme Fizi Bizi Fest we cooperate with some faculties and institutions from Belgrade and Novi Sad. Our main target groups are children and youth.
We use premises of two primary schools in Sombor, and of Grammar School ‘Veljko Petrovic’ Sombor (also a partner in this project).
We have qualified human resources, particularly youth workers, youth leaders, teachers, who actively participate in our programmes, as well as associates in school administration and NGO sector.
