Citizens and organizations have not participated in public discussions in Smolyan until the moment. The project aims to develop competencies and skills which will improve the quality of representation and protection of ideas to the responsible institutions on issues of importance to the community. With its implementation we will change the lack of broad civic participation, and will provoke young people to be more active. The participants will be trained by Bulgarian and Norwegian experts on the ways to impact of civil society, will participate in a demonstration workshop and will initiate and implement civil initiatives and campaigns, trying to show that young people have real power and importance to the community. The contribution of the partner NGO of Norway is professional – it will conduct trainings and demonstrations. In addition to the main target group of young people, the project will influence the citizens of Smolyan, who will be provoked to become more active regarding their participation in community life.
