Young people in Bulgaria are already part of the global movement of young people for whom their opinion, position and life are important. That is why they are looking for common solutions!
U-Report has already started, and the official event was on April 30.
U-Report is a global platform of UNICEF, which is already in Bulgaria. There are seven partner organizations that actively support the work process – National Network for Children, National Youth Forum, National Center for Safe Internet, Bulgarian Youth Red Cross, United Nations Society in Bulgaria, International Duke Award of Edinburgh – Bulgaria and Bilitis Foundation. All organizations unite around the position that the opinion of children and young people in Bulgaria is important and should be heard.
U-Report gives opportunity to children and young people aged 14-29 to express their views on issues important to them in an accessible way. U-Report relies on modern technologies: through the use of the popular Viber chat, registered children and young people receive consultations, useful information and referrals to various services suitable for them. The content of each proposed consultation and any information, as well as any public event of the U-Report, is discussed in a wide range of organizations, experts, children and young people in order to be as useful as possible, including youth opinion and position.
The results are publicly available here: https://bulgaria.ureport.in

U-Report does not collect personal data, and participation is completely free and voluntary. The information is used to draw attention to issues and important topics concerning young people. The big goal of U-Report is to reach institutions, politicians working with children and young people, and society and to involve young people in decision-making. That way the society will be able to better meet the needs of young people.
U-Report seeks to reassure children and young people that what they think matters.
