Plán Bratislava

We like Bratislava
and we want a better
future for it.

We are a group of more than 60 experts who have joined forces in a workgroup that aims to find solutions for a better city. We are the creators of the Bratislava Plan – a comprehensive vision of our capital in nine topic-based chapters.

Continue to the Bratislava Plan.

We’ve come to understand that it’s better to suggest new solutions instead of constantly criticising something.

Chapters
Plan B. is our way of designing the future of Bratislava and making it real

01 — IDENTITYWhat is actually Bratislava?

We’ve got a great geographical location, the Danube, a strong economy, an influx of new people and new energy that we need to take advantage of. What we haven’t got is an answer the question: What is Bratislava supposed to be?

03 — SOCIAL SPHEREA caring Bratislava

Seniors, socially challenged families, youth at risk and children in need of care can all be found among Bratislava’s citizens. If they face problems, the city should have a plan that will help these groups handle them.

07 — ENVIRONMENTA joy to live and stay in

Bratislava is a green city, but are we able to protect and develop its environment enough? How can we take advantage of the potential that the Danube river, the Little Carpathians mountain range and the local vineyards have? How to make the city a joy to live in?

09 — ATTITUDE TO THE CITYWe like you, Bratislava

Every relationship begins with communication. We are sure that this is the way how Bratislava can inspire positive feelings of its citizens toward the city. If Bratislava actively communicates with its citizens and listens to them, they will find a way to connect with it, no matter where they are originally from.

10 — INNOVATIVE BRATISLAVAHow to Bravely Look Forward Without Stumbling

Research, development, innovations, entrepreneurship and their support constitute the pillars of numerous economic pillars and strategies, which label them as natural catalysts of economic growth and prosperity. That is why these attributes play an even bigger role in boosting the local economy of such a compact ecosystem as the city.

11 — THE CAPITAL’S FINANCESHow to Sensibly Fill the City’s Treasury – And to Empty It, Too

A new park or a pedestrian bridge across the Danube, a tram line to Vrakuňa, new early intervention centres, pothole-free pavements for everyone, parking policy, higher immovable property tax. We know that these measures would help the city and some of them even increase its income. That said, what financial and social benefits will they exactly bring? How much will they cost and where will the city get the money for them?

12 — THE CITY AND ITS BOROUGHSHow Good Relationships Make Good Neighbours

Does Bratislava consist of the individual boroughs or are the boroughs only administrative units of Bratislava? What are the obligations of Bratislava towards its citizens and other people? What are the checks and balances that monitor the performance of tasks entrusted to the boroughs in the city’s statute and how do the citizens participate in its evaluation?

Plan Bratislava is under the auspices of Platforma pre Bratislavu o. z.

Platforma pre Bratislavu (Platform for Bratislava) has been established as an independent civic organisation whose aim is to identify municipal issues, suggest tangible solutions and determine a vision of Bratislava as a city for both its inhabitants and visitors.

It is a new generation of Bratislavans, experts in their field, activists, and people who are willing and able to start reshaping their city into a modern urban metropolis.

Q&As

  • What is Platforma pre Bratislavu doing?

    Platforma pre Bratislavu strives to create an environment for serious thinking about the city. It is working on the Bratislava Plan, a conceptual document. Its members include independent experts, but also many people with an ambition to run in the upcoming municipal elections who wish to transform the concepts in the document into tangible results.

  • What is the Bratislava Plan?

    The Bratislava Plan is a document that is currently being prepared by Platforma pre Bratislavu. It defines a vision and planning for Bratislava in several chapters and is meant to be a key document that will constitute the basis for future work in the city.

  • Who can become a member of Platforma pre Bratislavu and how can one do that?

    Everyone can become a member of Platforma pre Bratislavu, provided that we agree that his or her story is credible and the expertise offered may be a welcome contribution to the development of the Plan B., or for its eventual enforcement in political and professional spheres.

  • Does Platforma pre Bratislavu have an organisational structure?

    The platform is represented by Matúš Vallo. Strategic decisions are made at the level of the platform’s Council, formed by its founding members. the development iof the plan B. Supporters include everyone who shows interest in collaboration and has a personal story and motivation that is aligned with the aims of the platform.

  • Does Platforma pre Bratislavu share a common opinion on the current issues of Bratislava? Who represents its opinions?

    At Platforma pre Bratislavu, we do not perceive the need to articulate a common opinion on every topic that is currently on the table with regard to the municipality. What we see as more important than a common stance is an understanding of the context of a given topic. We have the advantage of being a group of experts with various fields of expertise, so we can discuss every problem from several different viewpoints. The common stances of Platforma pre Bratislavu are formed in discussions and are presented primarily by Matúš Vallo. The individual opinions of the platform’s members are not the opinion of the platform and are not necessarily the same as the opinions of other members of the platform.

  • Is membership in Platforma pre Bratislavu incompatible with an eventual membership in other political or interest groups, including the clubs of local council members?

    No, we’re primarily interested in expertise. The only limit is the situation when a potential member has made efforts to enforce controversial agenda or the agenda of lobbyist groups, regardless of whether this has taken place within the municipal council or in a third-party interest group.

  • Is membership in Platforma pre Bratislavu an expression of support of Matúš Vallo in the elections of the mayor of Bratislava?

    It is not an obligation. If this is to happen, it is up to each member to decide for himself or herself. However, if the members did not believe in the good intention, abilities and expertise of Matúš Vallo, they probably would not be interested in the platform membership.
