Sofia is our home city.
We design and create its future.
Let's take the potential of Sofia in our hands instead of leaving it to apathetic administrators and careless bureaucrats!
Let's step up more actively in the decision making!
1. Where do the money from the taxes flow out? We, DEOS suggest:
Strict monthly reporting and publishing of data online in open format.
The citizens should be included in the decision making.
Zero tolerance to corruption.
2. Why did you steal our Vitosha? We, DEOS suggest:
The public parks and gardens of Sofia to be safe and well taken care of.
The concessions should be contracted taking into account the best public interest and preserving of nature.
All the contracts should be transparent and open to the public.
Vitosha to the citizens – better accessibility, with properly functioning public transport and infrastructure for cyclists and pedestrians.
3. 3. Why Sofia is not a capital of culture? We, DEOS suggest:
Diligent maintenance of the municipal buildings and architectural heritage of Sofia.
The capital should provide appropriate environment for creativity and culture.

Municipal one-stop-shop for Sofia.
