11 December 2014: COM’ON Cluj-Napoca! The Participatory Budgeting for Youth was launched

COM’On Cluj-Napoca. It is the European Youth Capital year coming and we all want to involve all youngsters in creating the most joyful experience possible in 2015. This project wants to contribute exactly to this process!

The project proposed by the PONT Group, in partnership with the SHARE Cluj-Napoca Federation, the City Hall of Cluj-Napoca and the Cluj-Napoca City Council is entitled Participatory Budgeting of Youth in Cluj2015, European Youth Capital. The Participatory Budgeting (PB) aims the inclusion of the citizens in the democratic process of consultation and decision-taking, with the goal of establishing optimal ways of spending (some part of) the public budget.  The goal of the project is to conduct a process of participatory budgeting based on the inclusion of the young people; on the base of this process the City Cluj-Napoca will subsidize the implementation of the most agreed on (voted) projects under the EYC 2015. The strategic objective is to create a portfolio of 250 small projects with a total budget of approx. 500.000 RON, projects proposed by the young people, addressed to the local community (especially the peripheral areas of Cluj-Napoca), that contribute to the active participation of the inhabitants in the life of the community, that include the inhabitants in proactive activities, are happening in public and community spaces and assure free access to the inhabitants, without a financial barrier (a ticket).

So, all informal groups, you can already join this process on its dedicated website under the cc.yourcluj.ro address.
