Local Action Plan of Split, Croatia


The Youth Centre is located in the city of Split, which is the second largest city in Croatia and the largest city on the Croatian coast. The Youth Centre’s magnificent building benefits from an extremely favourable location, at the heart of the Split peninsula. Split’s historic core was included in the World Heritage List of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) in 1979. In addition to the concentration of cultural and historical monuments, the core and its surroundings hold most of the city’s cultural institutions.


City of Split, in collaboration with its partners, and particularly CEDRA Split as the Croatian national partner, was mandated to lead the development of the Local Action Plan (LAP) to identify policies, strategies, actions and tools to develop on the local territory according to the principles of NEB and SE with a focus on a Youth Centre and the network of similar initiatives in the Urban Agglomeration of Split, Split Dalmatia County and Croatia.
