Last week ECOPACK Bulgaria joined the forum Youth to Business, conducted for the second year in
Bulgaria of the largest international student organization AIESEC, which covers over 2100 universities around the world. The aim of the forum is to meet face to face young promising students with businesses in the country, to create dialogue and open up new opportunities. This year in the project participated more than 300 students from the University of National and World Economy, Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski "and the Technical University.
In the preliminary stage - Fair of the participating companies conducted on October 23rd, ECOPACK was represented with its own stand, where students had the opportunity to gain useful materials with
information on separate collection of packaging waste.The interest in the interactive game of ECOPACK "Become an Eco hero" was great. In a fun way students checked their knowledge and learned the correct answers for the processes and principles of separate collection. Finally each of them received a small gift.
In Saturdaymorning, the Executive Director of ECOPACK Mr. Bourgoudjiev presented to the students the activities of ECOPACK, introduced them some of the problems of sorting and revealed some details "from the kitchen". In the afternoon 25 students participated in the working group of ECOPACK. They actively and enthusiastically worked on the case, "How to build a positive attitude towards the process of separate collection". The students were divided in 4 teams, each of which offered a solution to the problem. The meeting was interesting and inspiring for both parties and ECOPACK would love to be included in the next Youth to Business Forum.
