Help rebuild Recycled Estate Educational Centre in Croatia

The earthquake caused great damage to the Recycled Estate Education Center – we need your help to rebuild it together!

The Recycled Estate suffered significant damage in the December 29, 2020 earthquake whose epicenter was about 25km away. In our village Vukomerić there almost isn’t a sole house without damage from the earthquake so we immediately set out to help everyone, repaired the damage on the roofs, removed the collapsed chimneys and did everything else necessary so people can safely spend the winter in their homes.

After we saved the houses on the Estate and in our village, just after the New Year’s day ZMAG’s construction team headed to the hardest hit areas South of us – to Banija where we help in the towns of Sisak and Glina and the surrounding villages. Our knowledge and skills in the field of construction that we have been developing for years are now reaching their full potential as we participate in the most basic repair of damaged buildings. We coordinate teams of volunteers and work at several locations in order to make homes of the local population safe before the coldest part of the winter. In addition to physical work, we do not neglect moral support, we talk and provide words of comfort and encouragement to our hosts, and we volunteer in delivering supplies to homes in remote areas. We are there as long as we can build and provide support, and then we return to our Recycled Estate.

In the short term, social economy actors have assisted the recovery from the crisis by providing innovative solutions that are aimed at strengthening public services to complement government action. In the long term, social economy organisations can help reshape the post-crisis economy by promoting inclusive and sustainable economic models. Relying on decades of experience, its specific features and underlying principles, the social economy can inspire models of social innovation and a sense of purpose to firms operating in the market economy.
