CPW/ELDW – Center for Community Organizing, Slovakia We had an interesting opening event on Monday evening, September 21 when a new citizens group held a public meeting with the owner of the temporary indoor pool which will open 1st October. They asked him to keep the same discounts that were provided by the municipally owned pool that is now closed for renovation. He agreed to all the proposed changes. The city Mayor also came to the meeting. It was a nice way to launch the new group with their first victory. We implemented four "cafe dialogues" as a part of our ELDW activities. We are partnering with a new group trying to re-build culture in the city and we agreed to work together on a big event with culture activities happening simultaneously in four different neighborhoods the weekend when we kicked off ELDW. The City also had been working with us on the event.
