JA Bulgaria 20th Anniversary Forum: Investing in Europe’s Transformers Through Education and Innovation

November 29th, 2017, 15.00 – 18.15 pm, Nu Boyana Film Studios


JA Bulgaria is proud to announce that it will celebrate its 20th anniversary with a special forum on November 29th on the topic of “Investing in Europe’s Transformers”.

During the forum, the organization will officially launch the Entrepreneurship Education HUB (EE-HUB) in Bulgaria – a joint policy-level initiative of JA Europe and Citi.

The goal of the HUB is to bring together both public and private stakeholders with successful track-record in supporting the development of entrepreneurship education at regional, national and European level that will collaborate to increase the level of entrepreneurship activities across European schools.

The special forum “Investing in Europe’s transformers” aims to offer a broad perspective on answering questions such as: What is the new Europe we strive for?, What kind of a world do we want to live in?, etc.

Based on three panel sessions, the event will elaborate on the successful educational approaches needed to address the new social, economic, cultural, political, environmental, and technological challenges that Europe is facing. High-level government and business speakers and opinion leaders will outline emerging trends and solutions focusing on the importance of the “human factor” and the need to invest in individuals’ personal development.

Форум по случай 20 години JA Bulgaria: Инвестираме в хората, преобразяващи Европа през образование и иновации


29 ноември 2017, 15.00 – 18.15 ч., Ню Бояна Филм Студиос

На 29 ноември 2017 г. JA Bulgaria ще отпразнува своята 20-годишнина със специален форум на тема „Инвестираме в хората, преобразяващи Европа“.

В началото на форума организацията ще обяви създаването на български Център за развитие на предприемачески компетентности и образование, част от European Entrepreneurship Education Hub (EE-HUB) – постоянен консултативен орган към институциите на Европейския съюз и съвместна инициатива на JA Europe и Citi за формиране на политики.

Целта на EE-HUB в Българияе разработването и прилагането на национални политики в контекста на препоръките на Европейския съюз, включително и разработването на дългосрочна национална стратегия за развитие на предприемаческите компетентности и образование, като ключов фактор за успешното икономическо развитие на страната и просперитета на българското общество.

Специалният форум „Инвестираме в хората, преобразяващи Европа“ има за цел да събере различни гледни точки, търсещи отговор на въпроси като „Каква е новата Европа, към която се стремим?“, „В какъв свят искаме да живеем?“ и др.

Чрез три панелни сесии събитието ще представи примери на успешни образователни подходи, необходими за адресирането на новите социални, икономически, културни, политически, екологични и технологични предизвикателства, пред които Европа е изправена. Лидери на мнение от сферата на държавното управление, бизнеса и медиите ще очертаят новите тенденции и решения с фокус върху значението на „човешкия фактор“ и необходимостта от инвестиции в личното развитие на всеки човек.
