Alzheimer Bulgaria took part in two events held by the American University in Bulgaria

In recent months, Alzheimer Bulgaria has participated in two events of the American University in Bulgaria – the Civil Society Forum and the Innovation Station social entrepreneurship competition. They took place on November 16, 2022 and between February 17 and 19, 2023.

In the Civil Society Forum a volunteer from the association, Victoria Ivanova, who studies psychology at AUBG, took part. She presented to her university colleagues the work and goals of the association and promoted the social cause among young people.

Irina Ilieva, the executive secretary of the association, was present at the Social Entrepreneurship Competition – Innovation Station of the Better Community Club at the American University in Bulgaria.

Generation Z ( young people between 17 and 24 years old) in 14 teams solved real social cases provided by the largest and most influential NGOs in Bulgaria. Nikola’s team worked on the cases presented by Alzheimer Bulgaria related to the discriminatory treatment of health problems of the older people. With the help of mentors, the young people proposed innovative solutions in the spirit of social entrepreneurship.

“In these 3 days the youth spirit met the experience and the results were inspiring” – Irina Ilieva
