Institute Alternative was one of the 36 promoters that presented work of their organisation on the Fair of non – governmental organisations, held on June 22, 2019 in Berane. The fair called „NGO EXPO 2019“ was organised for the fourth time, and during the past years this fair gathered citizens and activists from civil society in Podgorica, Budva and Bijelo Polje.
