Name of the project: Partnership for Cluj
Funder: Youth in Action
Implementation period: 31st December 2014 – 28th December 2015

Project Description:
The general aim of this project is the enactment of the program Youth@Cluj-Napoca 2015, European Youth Capital through a large partnership, a coalition of over 250 local, national and European NGO’s, by which there will be organized over 1200 projects and activities in the period 31st December 2014- 28th December 2015.

The number 1 strategic objective of this project is creating the frame, the specific methodology for planning, raising awareness, a methodology regarding as well involvement, implication, collaboration and implementation, by which the 2015 European Youth Capital will become the context of an extended collaboration in order to achieve some common goals. Furthermore, it is also a context in which the NGO’s can access the program and co-creating it will become an easy and transparent process. Thus the method is becoming ‘state-of-the-art’ in the management domain of some major projects (that normally last for 1 year) and also in the youth domain in general.

The specific objectives are the following:
• Reinforcing the role of the youth sector as being a powerful and influent one (through a local network of over 60 organizations); this will have an impact over the decision-making process of public political matters (adopting the youth strategy and creating the implementation mechanisms)
• Creating a permanent mechanism that formulates youth policies at a national level (think thanks) consisting of youth experts, initiative that would include a number of 30 persons and it would start from Cluj-Napoca and afterwards expand nationally, this process ending in a summary of 50 documents

The context of the project is the program Youth@Cluj-Napoca 2015 (European Youth Capital) itself. Being a title that was won, the youth sector has already started implementing the project. In the initial stage the work is being done especially on the ideological, methodological, internal procedures and creation of sustainable partnerships areas, so that this project can be a successful one not only for the youth sector of Romania but also for the European youth sector. Last but not least, the European community will become a beneficiary of the results of this program, if the latter proves to be viable, serious and bring a contribution (in a responsible manner) to the consolidation of the European spirit and citizenship and also to the youth sector as an integral part of the European society.
