The Initiative “A man that fits the island” gathered the citizens of the island of Lošinj who decided to oppose against the large and rapid changes in the public space to the detriment of the quality of life of island’s citizens and non-transparent decision making of local authorities.
The Initiative held three public hearings and public meetings, as well as several work actions. It opened a Facebook page on which it daily publishes comments on the situation in the area and it is followed by 968 people. It came forward in the media on the local Internet portal volim-losnj.org and shocked the public but also encouraged the local government to act. “A man that fits the island” initiated for the first time implementation of the Code of Practice on Consultation with the Interested Public and managed to prevent the proposed changes. The Initiative launched the Initiative for the Establishment of Local Committees in Mali Losinj which, as the largest town on the island, does not have any local committees.
