BULGARIA
Sofia

Sometimes just a few words can spark good ideas and inspiring examples, especially when they come from people who’ve successfully turned their cities into multinational and multicultural centers. Our new video features mayors and urban planning experts on the challenges of integration; we hope you find in their words the keys to transforming your own cities into open and welcoming environments.

SOFIA ASKS
On September 17th, Bulgaria’s capital celebrates St. Sofia Day – the day on which the Orthodox church commemorates the Holy Martyrs Sofia and her three daughters Faith, Hope and Love. To celebrate its holiday, Sofia is taking an untraditional view of itself and asking third-country nationals how they see it.

Experience Sofia through the eyes of third country nationals that have chosen to study, work and live here - Sofia as a university center, as an international working place, as a cultural hive. The video is produced by SDA INTEGRA project team.

SOFIA MUNICIPALITY SERVICES TO THIRD-COUNTRY NATIONALS
As part of the INTEGRA information campaign, Sofia Development Association created an easy-to-read bi-lingual brochure (in Bulgarian and in English) about services and institutional support offered to third-country nationals in Sofia. Working closely with the city administration, INTEGRA has helped launching a new municipal grant-making program for integration initiatives. 

IMMIGRATION DEBATE RESOURCE
SDA developed a new immigration debate resource. The immigration debate is a debate between two legitimate views, which can and should be decided through the normal democratic process. The resource contains debate questions that can be used to generate discussions within different groups: with and without prior knowledge; high school students to experts.

Rubano

INTEGRA CALENDAR CITY OF RUBANO

The calendar is a very helpful tool for the Mayor and the municipal councilors for daily interactions and intercultural communication with the foreign communities. The Municipality can also use the calendar to provide TCN communities with public spaces for festivals or events for celebration. Some of the days are bank holidays (like independence days or the revolution days), while others are religious celebrations. 

The calendar includes the official holidays and celebrations of the contries of origin of third country nationals (TCNs) living in Rubano, Padova. Rubano hosts more than 20 different nationalities. With the calendar we want to show respect for the many cultures and religions and the wonderful opportunities to celebrate in Rubano. 

LEAFLETS

The leaflets are meant to raise awareness among local citizens about the presence of TCN in our town given that 10% of Rubano's inhabitants are foreigners. Following the local elections on 26 of April 2019, Ms. Sabrina Doni has been confirmed the town’s Mayor. The political programme of her coalition has a special focus on integration and international cooperation with third countries. The leaflets are only in electronic format and are built mainly for Facebook. The Mayor and the new City Council will work on the themes of integration and the benefits of migrants contribution to society.
