“Infomont” is a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization from Montenegro. It started as a youth NGO in 2004, and since then it raised online, using the internet as a tool to connect people and promote its goals. It is now mainly an internet-based network, with colleagues and contributors located in different parts of Montenegro, Europe and the world. Members aare young professionals, civil society activists, academics, and other citizens – enthusiasts who want to help Montenegro, Balkans and Europe to develop faster.
Infomont is focused on several main areas: culture, fostering European values, European civil society, local civic engagement and open democratic society, ecology and sustainable development, tourism, education, diaspora issues.
Infomont is specifically sensitive to unorganized civil society, since the grassroots citizen movements in Montenegro often do not get much help from the civil society programs. Infomont has the expertise to help other organizations in their online communications, amplifying their messages, but also in search for other opportunities which might help their cause, such as connecting them with European organizations and finding other helpful partners and tools.
Infomont's main goal is to help Montenegro become a cultured, progressive, developed and open society. The motto of the organization is - 'informing, educating and engaging the citizens'. The values we promote are based on tolerance and understanding, equality and the respect for differences.
Infomont wants to contribute to the stability and prosperity of the Western Balkans region, while ensuring full integration of the European continent. This can be accomplished through formal and informal linkages between European and local non-governmental organizations, governmental bodies and public agencies, regional and local institutions, business actors, academia, civil society and individuals. Infomont eagerly facilitates this process and advocates that open, prosperous and connected society is the key to sustainable Europe.
