Some of the proposed ideas are planned to take place in the city, outdoors - in places such as Central Park, Detunata Park, Gheorgheni Sports Base or Romulus Vuia Ethnographic Park or in indoor locations such as the Casino Urban Culture Centre, the Students' Culture House, the Tailors' Tower Urban Culture Centre, universities, schools, cafés and others will be implemented online. Following the online voting, the first 35 initiatives, 5 of which in the special categories, in order of votes, will be financially supported by the Cluj-Napoca City Hall and Local Council, respectively BCR - with a maximum of 4,500 lei/initiative - and implemented by 20 November 2022. 

The most votes - 225 - were obtained by the UT Buddies' initiative UT Cross - Youth Marathon, which is aimed at young people in Cluj-Napoca. The UT Run is a charity event for young people in Romania. It takes the form of a 6 km long running competition against the clock. The event will take place in the Central Park "Simion Bărnuțiu".

Other winning proposals address themes such as health and mental health information among adolescents and young people. Blood donation actions, conferences on different topics such as democratic pedagogy or the importance of social links were also proposed. Several projects are proposed to bring reading, literature and critical thinking closer to young and old. Cluj residents will be able to take part in several treasure hunt events for both children and adults. From entrepreneurship to philanthropy and from ecology to fighting online harassment, the proposed initiatives are among the most diverse and ingenious. The winning entries include three initiatives proposed by low-opportunity groups and two by young people aged 14-17. You can read more about all the entries here: 

After the entries had been technically checked, they were promoted to the whole of the Cluj community and those interested went to to choose their favourites. Voters were required to have an account on the platform and had 10 votes to vote for their favourite ideas.

  • Take care!

    How do young people feel now and what can we do to make us all feel better, both physically and mentally?


    We invite you to think about initiatives related to improving health, whether it is physical or mental, spiritual, but also how you could implement initiatives related to healthy lifestyle - what we eat, how we sleep, how and how much we do sports.

  • Train your brain!

    How can young people be better equipped to cope with life? What do they want to learn in order to?


    The community would benefit greatly from your ideas with educational potential, which aim to develop general or specific skills. And when we say education, we obviously think of non-formal education, so consider proposals - including digital tools - that can contribute to the development of creativity, the ability to collaborate or solve problems. You can also write initiatives that address the teacher-student relationship or issues related to gender equality or ethnicity.

  • Create support!

    What kind of city do young people need for living to their full potential and for getting involved in solving the needs of their community and in the development of the city?


    We challenge you to identify and activate spaces in Cluj or to rethink existing spaces through which they can receive another function, even temporary. We are also waiting for ideas on youth support services, youth centers, mobility, transport, but also public policies to support young people.
