NGO O.A.ZA. – Sustainable Alternative to Community was established in January 2013 in Zagreb, Croatia. Our aim is to organise various activities for youth during which they can, in a positive and supportive atmosphere, develop their potential, and become exemplary carriers of sustainable social change.


Why such a name? “Sustainable” because we promote sustainable development – fulfilling one’s needs while respecting nature, resources, and future generations. “Alternative” because we popularise lifestyles and – what is more important – viewpoints not so popular in nowaday’s consumerist society. “Community” because we want to encourage the development of new young leaders who will guide society in a sustainable direction.

Our vision – Creating role models of sustainable society
Our mission – Encouraging the holistic development of youth as the architects of the future

We have the accreditation for sending and hosting volunteers within the European Solidarity Corps

Our values


Being mindful for the feelings and needs of other people and living beings


Acting in harmony between the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of life


Searching for the meaning of life, getting to know oneself and looking for imperishable values


Proactive, disciplined and adequate action in different circumstances

Our approach towards youth
