How we started

Since 2013 MOVE.BG offers innovative solutions for positive societal change. Our various projects and initiatives show us every day how many and diverse are the people who drive the change in Bulgaria. "The ChangeMakers" is the project that aims to unite them for common action.

In August 2018 we kick-started the project with a national tour. Within two months, our team with the help of local partners, held events in Burgas, Varna, Plovdiv, Stara Zagora, Veliko Tarnovo, Ruse and Sofia. In each of the cities, the purpose of the meetings was to talk with local ChangeMakers about the potentials and challenges of the city and how to address them.

The same answer we heard everywhere - "We need to connect with other similar projects/initiatives/organisations". Right after the tour we started building a platform that gives more visibility to the drivers of change and their projects and facilitates them to connect and cooperate.
