Awareness-raising of development cooperation
Slovenia aims to raise awareness of the importance, goals, and achievements of development cooperation and humanitarian aid. It is essential to realise that such activities in partner countries also indirectly affect life in Slovenia.
Slovenian Development Days
Slovenian Development Days is the flagship event for the promotion and awareness-raising of development cooperation and humanitarian aid. The event also provides a forum for experts from Slovenia and abroad, government representatives and NGOs, international organisations, and academia to discuss relevant current topics and cooperation.
Slovenia's development cooperation and humanitarian aid is visually represented by a logo in different shades of green and blue, accompanied by a bilingual text: Mednarodno razvojno sodelovanje in humanitarna pomoč Slovenije or in English Slovenian aid. Its shape resembles a hand embracing the world. The colours gradually blend from one to another, their choice based on Slovenia's natural and traditional environment. The gradation symbolises development, movement, and partnership. Bright green symbolises pastures and ownership, dark green forests and sustainability, blue-green the land in between and effectiveness, light blue represents the sky and empowerment, and dark blue water and mutual responsibility. In addition to the colours selected, these concepts are conveyed by the logo itself. Both Slovenian and English versions of the logo may be used in three different variations, two horizontal and one vertical, depending on the overall arrangement of the symbol and the text. Together, they form an emblem that is indivisible and inalterable, i.e., it is not allowed to change the proportions of its elements, misuse it, use only one element, or incorporate either one element or the entire emblem into another emblem.
