TVRTKO JAKOVINA: 'There is nothing to lose in creating better connections'
Though it might sound strange, I met people whose opinions I share and people who I find important and interesting, thanks to my appearance in Vicinities. Vucic showed me how many shared topics, books, and articles we all read and know; how much we listen to each other, that what happens in Croatia is heard beyond Croatia. I mention Croatia because it is probably more isolated than the other former-Yugoslav republics, so broadcasting Vicinities is enormously important in that sense. It is important to talk, to understand that there is nothing to lose, but plenty to gain from creating better connections, even though the region is still regarded as a monster by many of the countries around us.
