Sofia Platform Foundation (Sofia)

Sofia Platform’s work is characterised by two main strands: historical and political education throughout Bulgaria, particularly in regions outside the capital; and its involvement in the core identity debate that many Central and Eastern Europeans find themselves in post-transition: who are we now, and why are we who we are? Sofia Platform was originally founded in 2013 in response to the Arab Spring, in order to support those countries in transition phases through lessons learned and personal experiences. Since 2014, its focus has been on the question of how the lack of addressing the transition affects the current social and political situation in Bulgaria. Sofia Platform has a large network of national and international experts in many fields of education, such as historians, teachers and cultural workers, and is part of Networking European Citizenship Education (NECE) and Networking Arab Civic Education (NACE).
