Bulgaria: “Big Change Begins With Small Steps”

Categories: Eastern & Central Europe, Bulgaria, Education, Environment, Ideas, Youth

Various blogs [1] [bg] and mainstream media [2] [bg] were telling [3] [bg] about a student initiative held in the capital city of Sofia on April 24. Many students and members of diverse youth organizations planted trees in the badly-maintained Studentski Grad (“Students City”), a welcome citizen initiative where the leitmotiv was “Big change begins with small steps.” The trees were planted near an abandonned building that has been refurbished by student volunteers who'd like to transform it into a Student center.
