The Deputy Mayor of Sofia Municipality, Doncho Barbalov, who is also the head of the project, emphasised that a significant part of the achieved results are demonstrated for the first time in Bulgaria, and some are innovations at the European level. This makes the project a suitable platform for the development of cooperation between municipalities and cities and the transfer of experience, knowledge and information. The deputy mayor of the capital city emphasised on the active support of citizens and non-governmental organisations throughout the entire period of project implementation, which gave them the opportunity to generate ideas themselves and participate in the decision-making process.
