PONT Group is involved in multiple projects regarding social innovation through participation and especially youth participation.

The largest of these participatory processes is COM’ON, which roots in Com’On Cluj-Napoca 2015, the first participatory budgeting for youth in Romania. Similar processes took place also in Timișoara and Sfântu Gheorghe, and PONT Group took it to national and European levels through Com’On România and Com’On Europe.

We proposed and coordinated the bid of Cluj-Napoca for the European Youth Capital title, which was obtained on the first try. This has resulted other participatory processes, which culminated in the largest urban youth program in Romania: the Youth Capital of Romania, which came to life from the legacy of Cluj2015. The program is based on similar principles as the European Youth Capital and.

The Network of European Youth Capitals is an informal network of collaboration of several municipalities and organizations that were nominated for or held the title of European Youth Capital. PONT Group was the temporal coordinator of the network.
