PLEVEN CONTEMPORARY MEDIA FOUNDATION

PLEVEN CONTEMPORARY MEDIA FUNDATION was established in 2014. It is the successor of the newspaper \\\"Posrednik\\\" (meaning a mediator), the most influential newspaper in Pleven and the region (issued since November 1991 until March 2015), and of the digital edition posredniknews.com, which the foundation continues to publish. In order to continue to carry out the mission to which they have devoted decades, the newspaper owners, together with adherents, registered the “Pleven Contemporary Media Fundation”, to maintain the leading function of the newspaper as a driver of public processes.

The Foundation pursues the following goals: development and affirmation of European values, civil society principles, including freedom of expression and freedom of opinion, by issuing contemporary media in Pleven and the region.

The foundation's team has extensive journalistic and publishing experience. They are in close contact with artists from all fields of art - artists, actors, writers who, through the foundation, would participate in projects under several European funds.

In 2017-2018, they successfully implemented a large project on the subject of cultural and historical heritage, in which more than 2,500 students participated in thematic tourist routes to get acquainted with the history of prominent families and beautiful old buildings in Pleven.

“NEW Schuman Declaration – Cross-Generational Conversation about a NEW Europe”

“NEW Schuman Declaration – Cross-Generational Conversation about a NEW Europe” is a project funded by the European Union in frame of the program “Europe for Citizens” Strand 1 – „European Remembrance“. The project is coordinated by the Contemporary Pleven Media Foundation based in Pleven, Bulgaria in collaboration with the following partners: Educommart from Greece, AIFED from Spain and Fundacja Autokreacja from Poland. The project is set to take place during 01.01.2021 – 30.06.2022.

The project aims to generate ideas for the future of the European Union. It will link the past and the present to give young Europeans a powerful tool for building the future. The instrument is the memories and lessons of the past 70 years.

Talking to contemporaries of the 1950 Schuman Declaration, of their country’s admission to the EU and of the changes in Central and Eastern Europe after 1990, young people will add to the lines of history textbooks the experience of “ordinary” people. They will also become familiar with the full text of the Schuman Declaration, which everyone has heard of, but few have read.

On May 9, we will announce an essay contest “My Schuman Declaration”

We’ll introduce young Europeans to the human rights set out in the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights (2000). The rights – dignity, freedoms, equality, solidarity, citizenship, justice – seem indisputable. But in all four countries involved in the project, there’ve been periods of their suppression. This must be known and remembered so as not to be repeated.

Bulgaria’s first democratically elected president, Zhelyu Zhelev, used to say „Democracy can only be healed with more democracy“. Euroscepticism, populism and centrifugal forces induced by Brexit must be counteracted by cohesion, solidarity and security.

The “New Schuman Declaration – cross-generational conversation for a New Europe” project activities will be implemented in the 4 countries of the consortium: Bulgaria, Greece, Spain and Poland, in these cities respectively: Pleven, Athens, Granada, and Warsaw. This will bring together participants from countries with more than 30 years of EU membership with those accepted only 10 or 15 years ago; countries developed under conditions of capitalism and socialism; residents of capitals and of two big, but not metropolitan cities.

The project stands symbolically within the limits of time and space – from the laying of the foundations of the EU in 1950 to the present, and from the external borders of the Union in the four directions of the world – from Bulgaria to Spain, and from Greece to Poland.

The focus group of the project is young people between the ages of 14 and 29, so most of the activities will be held in schools and universities in the 4 countries: cross-generational meetings, flash mobs, puzzle room competitions. We will promote and run online the essay contest „My Schuman Declaration“. This way, participation in it will be accessible to all interested who meet the criteria of the regulations. The radio campaign will be broadcast to an audience of millions via BNR, which also transmits online. The venue for the closing event – an international forum Schuman Declaration and the future of the EU will be the “Iliya Beshkov” Art Gallery in Pleven.

The global network and the radio airing make massive dissemination of information possible, and the New Schuman Declaration – for a New Europe project intends to make the most of it.
