Bulgaria: Bulgarian Government Approves National Youth Programme

The Bulgarian government approved at its regular meeting on Wednesday a national youth programme encompassing the period between 2016-2020.

The programme will serve as an instrument for fulfilling the goals of the country's youth policy and funding youth projects realised by NGOs.

The funding will be provided under two main sub-programmes, namely the development of the network of youth information-consultative centres and national youth initiatives and campaigns.

The programme is expected to contribute in achieving strategic goals of the national youth strategy through fulfilling eight operational goals and fifteen activities directed towards encouraging personal development and youth economic activity.

It is also aimed at: improving access to information and quality services; encouraging healthy lifestyle; preventing social exclusion and increasing civic activity among youth.

Among the expected result is achieving territorial coverage through the functioning of at least thirty youth information-consultative centres providing quality and effective services.

Other expected results are raising youth awareness, developing their knowledge, skills and attitudes as well as encouraging them to participate in the process on deciding important social issues and youth problems.

The programme will also inform youth of the benefits of healthy lifestyle, youth volunteering, opportunities for youth entrepreneurship in Bulgaria and mobilising youth in the implementation of European policies.
