On the initiative by Minister Asen Lichev, “Green Support for a Sustainable Future” will be held every year as part of the European Commission’s “European Mobility Week” campaign (September 16th-22nd).

The challenges of a sustainable future on a global scale in Bulgaria require the adoption of key decisions and actions by well-educated and trained “green” leaders.
