First sport-social base in Bulgaria

by National movement Union for development of sport and sports culture Footura
First sport-social base in Bulgaria

Summary

Our goal is to buy, renovate and develop a sports-social base 150 km from Sofia (70 % highway) and located in a wonderful ecologically clean mountainous region. With the development of the base, our goal is to create an innovative space that combines many positive features - eco cleanliness, opportunities for non-formal education, sports, tourism, active rest, social contacts and work. Besides the base, we have also targeted our future nearby partners that offer additional mountain experiences.

Challenge

Our idea for the base came from the fact that Sofia (and not only) is an overcrowded and polluted city (in TOP 10 in Europe), and in the vicinity it is surrounded by beautiful nature and mountains, but there is no active sport or social activity there. In addition to the traditional addictions and immobilizations in the urban environment, there are increasing talks about depressive states in the big city, difficulty in finding own environment, the lost connection with nature, etc.

Solution

By running the base, we will be able to offer solutions based on the sport-social models we work on, to a wide range of users. By preliminary calculations we can meet in the first year of operation of the base more than 500 children in school age, over 300 young people, and over 100 guests in active age, we can organize over 10 events (competitions, seminars, etc.). With its unique characteristics, our base will be an excellent project with sport-social, educational, eco and economic orientation

Long-Term Impact

The development of the base is subject to long-term eco energy systems, healthy, sports, touristic, informal education and social conditions for the guests, economic effects for the region, etc. The project has a business orientation also and will function all year round as a co-sharing space, guest house, tourist information center and starting tourist point. This is our first project from several similar sites in different locations (in a mountain, sea, traditional Bulgarian village, spa, etc.
