Part of the Via Pontica Foundation team took an active part in a round table presenting the results of analyzes and research on the project “Implementation of models and policies to promote civic participation for responsible, shared and dynamic governance at the local level.”

The event dedicated to the improvement of the interaction between the local government and the civil society in the development of policies at the local level was held on June 10, 2020 at 09:00 in the building of the Gallery “Georgi Baev”, Burgas.

The event is organized within the project “Implementation of models and policies to promote civic participation for responsible, shared and dynamic governance at the local level”, funded by the Operational Program “Good Governance” 2014-2020, implemented by the Association of Municipalities from Southeastern Region.

 

 

Representatives of the general public and various non-governmental organizations attended the forum. The moderator was Assoc. Prof. Dr. Haralan Alexandrov, who is engaged as an external expert within the project.

Among the most interesting conclusions from the analysis are the preference for an informal form of communication between civil society organizations and the municipality, as well as the growing expectations regarding the commitment of the municipal administration to all upcoming local initiatives. In addition, the Rules for Providing Funds from the Municipal Budget for co-financing of non-governmental organizations were presented.
