Several teams of young scientists have been included in the project, several hunderds eminent names of Croatian intellectuals have signed the campaign, great number of Civitas experts have been actively engaged in carrying out the project. Unfortunately, for all this no one helped supporting the project financially with the exception of MZSS. In this way we would like to thank MZSS sincerely. Many requests have been sent out in the name of Civitas, especially regarding a new vehicle that would help team experts to visit schools and institutions around Croatia safely and without fear. Therefore in this way once again we would like to address possible donors. In the next few months the project is expanding to other towns and villages around Croatia. Also, we expect to hear finally from the mayor of Zagreb considering that the project is carried out mostly in this area.
Once again we would like to thank everybody who signed the campaign. We would like to thank all head-masters, educators, professors, parents and students who recognized the importance of the project: "Civitas, scientists and media against violence." We would also like to express gratitude to colleague journalists who have been helping us since the beginning of the project. By covering the project they have helped in its realization. With this positive approach you have all become our greatest moral strength which binds us but also encourages us to persist with our work regarding quality achievements of goals that we have set.
