30 years of diplomatic relations between Croatia and the Netherlands
The Netherlands and Croatia mark the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations, this year. Today, our two countries have excellent and friendly bilateral relations.
The Netherlands Embassy in Zagreb wants to mark this important anniversary with people and environment in mind. Reflecting on 30 years of our relations, people have always been at the core and connecting our nations. We want to listen to their life stories and share their experiences with you. We are happy to be joined in this project by the Croatian Embassy in the Hague.
As another token of appreciation of our collaboration, the Embassy will plant trees throughout beautiful Croatia, in areas where the Netherlands has been present with bilateral cooperation projects in the past thirty years. We would like this to be a long lasting footprint of our partnership, and our joint care for the environment.
“Ties and Tulips” stories
People are a true bridge between the Netherlands and Croatia. With the project “Ties and Tulips” we share the stories and experiences of Croats in the Netherlands and Dutch people in Croatia. Their inspirational messages will reflect on what the Netherlands and Croatia have in common, and what makes them different. The project is done in cooperation with the Croatian Embassy in the Hague. It’s an ongoing project, and stories will be published and shared throughout this year. If you have a story to share, we invite you to connect with us, for instance via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Caring for our environment and local communities is a joint responsibility. Planting trees throughout beautiful Croatia is our way to mark the 30th anniversary of bilateral relations between the Netherlands and Croatia. The Embassy has partnered with a local NGO “Zasadi stablo, ne budi panj”, as we intend to “make the world better for us all”. The Embassy staff will take an active role in planting trees in autumn. With this engagement we are returning to areas where the Netherlands has been present with bilateral cooperation and technical assistance projects in the past thirty years.
