The designers of the Cluj 2015 TotemThe designers of Cluj 2015 Totem encourage the youth to get involved in as many creative activities as possible.

Youth@Cluj-Napoca 2015 unveiled in february the CLUJ 2015 totem, a project initiated by the AStA association. This concept has the purpose of promoting Cluj-Napoca and communicate its values in a fresh way during this year, now that Cluj is the European Youth capital. Other active communities contributed at the completion of this project too. Because we already talked about this, this article is entirely dedicated to the designers that contributed at the construction of the 63 cassettes that form the CLUJ 2015 totem.
How many people are needed to improve the Cluj- Napoca idea ?We talk about February 28th, 2015, 23:59. As you may know, this is the deadline for the enrollment for the initiative Com`ON Cluj-Napoca- Youth Participatory Budget in Cluj 2015, European Youth Capital. And because we know that the Little Prince said: “big men like numbers”, we will try to say the story in a numeric way.

Let`s start with 1. In this sense, we remind you that Com`ON Cluj-Napoca is the first process with participatory budgeting (BP) from Cluj- Napoca, which aims to involve youngsters from the above mentioned city, into a democratic process of deliberation and decision, for determining the best way to spend the public budget, within the Cluj-Napoca 2015, European Youth Capital program.
This way, we have set an extremely brave and encouraging goal for the target audience: a portfolio of 250 projects/ initiatives proposed by the youth, whom are organized only in informal groups, and who address their projects to the local community.
