The EESC is hosting a photo exhibition to mark one year since the catastrophic earthquake that hit Croatia in December 2020.

Entitled "Stay with us", this collection of 25 photographs is a call that raises awareness of the devastating impact of natural disasters on all kinds of human, social and commercial activities.

The photos show craftsmen who lost their workshops and had no means to carry on their activities, but who kept inspiring people with their example, staying united and positive.

The images focus on the regions of Sisak, Petrinja, Glina and the surrounding areas, the ruins left behind and the countless issues that still need to be addressed for a return to normality, one year since the earth shook.

The exhibition will run from 15 February to 15 March 2022 and will be staged 100% virtually on the EESC's website. (ck)
