    About the campaign

    Sociological surveys confirmed that the vast majority of residents of the capital are interested in the activities of the city government (77.7% of respondents are "interested" / "mostly interested"). But the level of awareness about initiatives, plans, services, and achievements of city authorities is only 50.4%, while 49.9% of respondents described themselves as unfamiliar with these activities. 56% of the questioned Kyiv citizens believe that they are not involved in the public dialogue on determining the priorities of the city and the decision-making process of the city authorities.

    Considering this data, the Kyiv State City Administration has launched an information and communication campaign for presentation and public discussion of the long-term priorities, goals, and objectives of Kyiv's development. The campaign will help create a systematic, sustainable and consistent interaction with the target groups as part of the drafting of the City of Kyiv Development Strategy in 2035.
