The project SCHOOL ♥ CITY aims to improve the knowledge about the planning of sustainable cities and towns among the teachers and students in primary schools in Montenegro. The legal basis for the implementation of the project is the fact that the Education for sustainable development programme has already been introduced into Montenegrin educational system, including eight cross-curricular fields, one of which is Sustainable cities and towns. Although this legal basis for education on sustainable cities has been created, the level of its implementation in primary schools in Montenegro is still very low. For that reason, the SCHOOL ♥ CITY project deals with practical education of teachers and students about the topic of sustainable cities and towns, so that this cross-curricular field could become part of the regular school curricula.

techniquesHeadley Trust Foundation in May 2014 approved a grant to Expeditio project named "Traditional materials and building techniques in the Boka Kotorska". Given the lack of appropriate examples of restoration of traditional wooden windows and application of lime mortar on traditional buildings, and the lack of information in our language concerning these issues, there is a need for professional literature on traditional techniques, crafts and materials. EXPEDITIO conceived this project in order to continue improving the knowledge and skills of traditional materials and the use of building techniques, focusing on wooden windows and lime mortar.


In December 2015, a project of Expeditio entitled STRONGO Developing stronger civil society in Boka Kotorska was approved by the European Union through the IPA 2014 Civil Society Facility Montenegro Programme.

The project lead partner is Expeditio, while other partners are 4 non-governmental organizations from the area of Boka Kotorska: “Naša Akcija” from Kotor, “Urban Nova” from Herceg Novi, Cultural Heritage Association NAPREDAK Gornja Lastva from Tivat and “Agora” from Budva. Project duration is 35 months.
