Our volunteers will therefore be engaged in NowWeMOVE campaign that has been carried out in Bulgaria by BG Be Active on a national level for the past 5 years, and in the activities related to our new initiative - The_Spot. This project rests on the placemaking approach and is designed to renovate 10 specific public places in 10 different cities with a focus of involving youth in the process, as well as multiple local partners, including NGOs, municipalities and local communities.
