Parents Association “Step by Step” from Zagreb recently launched the campaign #Work&Family to inform the public about needed changes on a European and national level to support families and achieve a balance between family and work. The campaign ran form 21st November to 1st of December 2017.
The campaign linked proposals from the Directive at European level and the needs of families in Croatia and pointed the needed changes in national family policy implemented by the institutions of the Republic of Croatia. In Croatia, the accent was put on stable and well payed working conditions, active father participation from the childbirth, better childcare and health care and empowered working conditions for women.
Campaign messages were displayed on the Facebook page of “Step by Step” through infographics, video clips, experiences and statements of Step by Step Director Silvija Stanić, who participated in the European business-education summit in Brussels at the end of November.
The #Work&Family campaign was the first step towards informing the general public about this important topic and is a part of the project of BRZO (Better balance for employed families) which “Step by Step” started implementing at national level. The project started in November 2017 and is implemented with the support of the Ministry of Demography, Family, Youth and Social Policy. Step by Step gives full support to the proposal of the EU Directive and strongly encourages the European Parliament and the Council of the EU to adopt it.
