FUTURE OF CITIZENSHIP: LOCAL FORUM TO PROMOTE ACTIVE SOCIETY

(FINALIST 2018) Mobilising civil society: a civil forum in the town of Dobrich to create and develop projects to benefit the town.

For the past two years, the town of Dobrich has been hosting a civil forum supported by the local government, which mobilises active people in the local community to collect ideas for the development of the city and the region and to seek opportunities for their realisation.

The forum brings together professionals related to Dobrich, who live in Bulgaria or abroad, with their experience and expertise, to give their input and support for the development of Dobrich Municipality. The main topics of the forum are information technologies and education as strategic sectors for the future of Dobrich and the community. The result was ideas that have been generated, from which several initiatives have already been implemented, including a farm bazaar for organic food held every Thursday and a 48-hour film marathon on the theme „Beautiful Dobrich“ that is going to be held this autumn. The aim of all initiatives is to include the active civil society in the life and development of the town.
