Our efforts are aimed at designing and implementing new approaches for solving challenges.
The key to the future is sustainable development. We must think that what we do now later impacts the economy, the society and the environment.
New business models bring new values. We love the new definitions, but at the same time we point to the well-known concepts: philanthropy, social responsibility and ethics in business

The story of ARNO
Association for Development of New Options=ADNO (Ref. ARNO is our original name, in Macedonian language it has nice meaning*)
ARNO is organization for Social Innovation established in the Macedonian civil landscape with special mission of development and implementation of social innovation and promotion of new options and contemporary technological approaches for society change. At the moment we function as hybrid organization (Civil Society Organization with economic activities).
Once we have the Legal framework on Social Entrepreneurship in Macedonia, we plan to be officially registered as Social Enterprise. Meanwhile nothing hold us of doing our work and helping the communities. We created our entity on the basis of inspiration and need for change.We believe that with new interventions and social innovation, our world can be better.
Based in Skopje, we are the Macedonian voice of social change and innovation, but we believe our voice can be spread regionally and internationally. Because, we do good (ЗА АРНО):)
