“I Vote for Europe’: Bulgarian Youth Votes in the European Elections 2009”

The primary objective of the project was to encourage the participation of young people, aged 18-25, in the elections for the European Parliament in 2009, by developing new models and channels of communication between youth groups and political parties/candidates and new models for voters’ mobilisation in the run-up to the elections. The coalition of four NGOs, created for the implementation of the project, worked to engage young people in the elections, providing them with non-partisan information about key issues shaping the candidates’ platforms.
