The Foundation BFPE for a Responsible Society (BFPE) actively implements programs with the aim of building capacities, skills and knowledge of various actors, encourages social dialogue, contributes to the achievement of sustainable development goals and works to improve regional and multilateral cooperation in the context of European integration.
Platforms for discussion of foreign policy and challenges to security
We are concerned that the Western Balkans is at risk of becoming a periphery, weakened by numerous bilateral disputes, with no real possibility of influencing global developments. That is why we gather politicians, think-tankers, activists, face them with the consequences of inaction, and take them out of the “comfort zone” so we can find solutions together.
We raise the awareness of decision makers about energy efficiency, renewable energy sources and the green economy; we fight for greater citizen participation and encourage the cooperation of all those involved in the creation and implementation of a more responsible and comprehensive energy policy.
Western Balkans moving forward together
Together with our partners, we bring together decision-makers, calling upon them to act responsibly; we propose solutions to bilateral disputes in the wider region of Western Balkans and Southeast Europe; we help build good neighborly relations, as well as getting to know and understand the “other side” and its needs.
Social inclusion and local development
The BFPE has traditionally promoted the improvement of the unequal starting position of women, Roma, young people, as well as residents of underdeveloped areas. We see the opening of opportunities for equal participation of these groups in the political process and decision-making, in the labor market, as well as in educational institutions at all levels as a necessary condition for the consolidation of democracy and the creation of a truly responsible society.
