More than 20 years after the raging war, Mostar is still scarred by visible and invisible divisions. Yet this beautiful city is wakening up to its potential.
The Fronterra program aims to unlock Mostar’s abundant natural, cultural and social capital, by nurturing a coalition of young entrepreneurs. This group will break the current state of apathy and cynicism and create opportunities for sustainable growth. Fronterra will provide training and coaching facilities, in collaboration with local partners. The program will include a memorable gathering dinner along the banks of the Neretva river under the Stari Most, the restored famous bridge that was demolished during the war.
The Fronterra events will take place in September 2016. Team leader and project developer is Inga Kotlo.
