School children with sunflowers seeds.
Zadar was a logical choice as the first town for a "solar sunflower," as it is also home to the Solar Education Center created by Zadar County and UNDP in 2011 to encourage wider use of renewable energy and provide training in environmentally friendly "green jobs." Alongside training courses, the Solar Education Center hosts an energy efficiency information center that provides citizens with free information, including on the advantages and costs of solar systems, the technologies available on the Croatian market and the incentive schemes available to promote their installation.
