The RoBulUs project

The RoBulUs project is designed to support and enhance citizens engagement in the decision-making processes. It is derived by the findings for modest citizens` involvement in decision-making processes in Bulgaria and Romania, even though public institutions provide people with channels for participation.

The Initiative includes an integrated set of research, design, development and dissemination activities.

The RoBulUs project aims to:

  • to raise awareness and drive interest in the utilisation of legal opportunities for participation in decision-making processes on the planning and implementation of the OPS among young people
  • to develop pilot tools to support the engagement of young citizens in the design and future implementation of the RO-BG CBC Program in their communities and regions
