The themes and dilemmas tackled by the festival include the inadequate visibility of NGOs, their fields of work and what they contribute to the Slovene environment, as well as problems associated with the inadequate definition of NGOs provided by existing legislation. Other aims of the festival include formulating a strategic framework for the systematic development of NGOs in Slovenia, promoting partnership and cooperation between NGOs, capacity building of CNVOS partnerships with other pillars of civil society, stimulating NGO development in different regions, promoting NGOs working outside Ljubljana, fundraising opportunities, and intensifying cooperation with the media.
