The city of Bratislava is implementing the international project Cities4CSR with the aim of setting a model of functional, useful and transparent cooperation between the city and the business sector and other partners.

The project creates tools for influencing the social responsibility of various partners in the city of Bratislava for a better life in the city (so-called Urban Social Responsibility). The output will be an action plan for cooperation and a pilot solution for a specific measure in the city.

The aim of the project is to increase the role and added value of companies' activities in the field of CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) at the local level towards the regeneration of cities and social innovations with a special emphasis on education and with the aim of better solving emerging and unfulfilled local needs.
