    Method Alternativni mod/dom

    An editorial team consisting of representatives from the triangle of professionals, science and youth compiles the magazine. The editorial board members come from the Netherlands, Croatia, Serbia and Bosnia. The main goal is to present important topics in a practical and easy-to-understand way so that professionals can read it during their coffee break, on the way to work or on vacation.

    The magazine is published twice a year and each edition has a specific theme chosen by the editorial team.


    In addition to the articles, which are written in Bosnian, Croatian or Serbian, there are recurring blogs, an inspiration page, the "I wonder" section and a different host country each edition. Because of a shared past and the same context, it is relatively easy to implement best practices from these countries in one's own country. In addition, we also share best practices from distant countries to gain inspiration and explore new ideas.

    Alternativni mod/dom comes in both print and online formats, so you can enjoy the trade magazine your way. Check out the magazine here.
