5. Participation

Last update: 28 November 2023

The participation of the Bulgarian young people in democratic life at national, local and regional level is a priority of the Governing Program (2017-2021),and takes place with the active collaboration with local and national authorities. Municipal youth councils and Children’s Parliaments have been established in many of the Municipalities on the territory of the country as subsidiary and consultative bodies to the local authorities in the field of youth policy. Thus, the opinions of the young people are considered with encouragement of the general climate of public dialogue, critical thinking and active contribution by using the instruments, means and capacities provided by the representative democracy and the democracy of the participation at all public levels.
