Project „Environment is everyone’s business”

Institute “Razum” – Sofia, Bulgaria, and4x4x4 Balkan Bridges” – Skopje, Macedonia, are working on a project Environment is everyone’s business”, funded by The Balkan Trust for Democracy.

Green growth is one of the three priorities of Europe 2020 – the strategy to direct the EU throughout this decade, which shows the importance of this area, equal to the ones of inclusive and knowledge-based growth. Young people have an important role to play in this process at all levels – community, national and cross-border.

The follow-up project targets young people and local authorities in an effort to raise environmental concerns and the need for taking action at the municipal level for introducing innovative approaches in tackling the issue. Young people in Bulgaria and Macedonia today have a much greater degree of environmental awareness than ever before. Using the means of a road show as a campaign vehicle, the project will popularize and call for the adoption of green measures such as bicycle lanes and bike sharing systems (rent a bike service), introduction of electromobiles, recycling, reducing and reusing, etc. at the local level, in six municipalities in Macedonia and Bulgaria: Skopje, Kumanovo, Kriva Palanka, Kyustendil, Pernik, and Sofia. The project activities will peak in a regional forum with the participation of representatives of youth NGOs, local authorities, young MPs, and other interested stakeholders from the participating countries, and young MEPs from Bulgaria, which will be held in Sofia, to bring people together around existing challenges and solutions. The road show and the regional forum will be conducted in the framework of the European Mobility Week (September 16 – 22). Thus the informal network of youth individuals, organizations and stakeholders will discuss on the current state of affairs and the need for adoption of environmental and green policies as part of cross-border cooperation and the EU level policies but will also contribute to enhancing regional cooperation and intercultural dialogue.

The project aims to mobilize local stakeholders in the six municipalities regarding youth and green policy in order to motivate and empower them to start acting and planning social actions and to bridge the gap between public policies and European citizens.
