The project addresses the issue of urban renewal, identifying and revitalizing run-down and blighted areas in Sofia City, Poduyane District in particular. The project aims at mapping potential places for local community centres for exchange of information, services and goods. First, a multidisciplinary team of experts and volunteers will be set up to “scan” the neighbourhood, identify up to 100 potential locations, select up to 3 for a future place of exchange. Second, the stakeholders of the potential location will be identified and involved in the development of the plan for a community centre. Finally, public support and participation will be sought via a public forum held. The project will benefit the local community, the young people and NGOs in it. The three partners will contribute by sharing experience, strengthening the applicant’s capacity, coordinating the work of the volunteers and facilitating the identification of the relevant stakeholders.
