Trag provides support to associated citizens so they could influence policies in relevant areas on a local, regional, and national level, to bring improvement to local communities. So far, Trag has been focused on support in the areas such are environmental protection and social inclusion, but it is open for support in other areas as well.
Trag supports connections, cooperation, and networking of associated citizens; facilitates organizing and implementing mutual meetings, establishing and strengthening networks and coalitions. When necessary, Trag provides consultancy, technical and financial support to networks and coalitions and supports organizing of public debates, researches, and mutual projects originating in networks.
Up to now, Trag has supported the establishment and work of two networks of local organizations: Green List of Serbia (GLS) and SLAP.

Green List of Serbia is the network of 12 local ecological organizations whose activities are directed towards the improvement of the waste management system in Serbia. Up until now, Green List of Serbia has conducted three ecological campaigns Get Plane Wise!  aiming to instigate relevant institutions, citizens and other stakeholders in society to be actively involved in solving the problem of waste disposal in Serbia. In these campaigns, GLS has succeeded to involve more than 28.000 citizens on a local and national level to clean several dozens of wild landfills in more than 15 communities and gather over 80 tons of waste that were later recycle.

SLAP is the network of 10 civil society organizations focused on providing social services to persons with disabilities and their families. Trag has supported SLAP members to develop services and to improve its qualities through the exchange of knowledge and good practice examples from EU countries. Trag has provided special support to these organizations in advocating for permanent financing of services on a local level through budget allocations from local budgets.
