Club “Sustainable Development of Civil Society”
CSDCS is an NGO with a research profile founded in 1997 with the mission to contribute to the sustainable development by strengthening the social dialogue and assisting local stakeholders in their work on regional strategies and projects’ development. We operate at a national level with our main office based in Sofia and several branches in different regions of the country. We have implemented more than 30 important projects funded by EU and other donors, most of them in the area of transport and environment. Since 2010, CSDCS is a National Coordinator on Mobility and a SUMP focal point for Bulgaria, appointed by the EC.
What have we been up to lately?
CSDCS has some experience in Public Procurement and has always been opting for environmentally friendly solutions. Up until now, we haven't applied GPP principles but after GPP-training we are aiming to apply the knowledge gained in the tenders in our current H2020, TDP and INTERREG EUROPE Projects.
What has our NGO planned for the future?
Our plans are to launch some training and awareness raising activities in Bulgaria in order to promote GPP. We are maintaining a National Network named ENDURANCE that aims to disseminate information and promote the sustainable mobility among stakeholders like municipalities, state bodies, businesses and NGOs. WE are aiming to use this network for a large national campaign on GPP.
