    Ivaylo Georgiev, an excellent student of the Class of 2016 who graduated from Varna Free University "Chernorizets Hrabar" in the Master’s degree programme of Leadership in a Global Environment, was one of the 120 young people who finished with honours universities across the country and participated in the initiative of the president Rosen Plevneliev "Youth Vision of Development of Bulgaria".


    "Young people should have their say and will always be a reason and driver of any change for the better in the country," said the President Rosen Plevneliev at the end of his term in December, 2016, at the opening of the fifth edition of the initiative.



    The Head of State expressed hope that continuity of the initiative will be also ensured

within the next presidential term and it will be continued and upgraded  as a good tradition to include active and educated young people in the process of making decisions for the country.


    The theme of this year’s edition of "Youth Vision of Development of Bulgaria" was  "Priorities - Results and Direction". It enabled the graduates of the Bulgarian universities to share with the president their view on the new realities and challenges in the country in the context of complicated domestic political and international environment. The Head of State once again encouraged Bulgarian young people to express their civil position. "You are creative and unencumbered. You have motivation and ideas for the future. Share them with us!" said Rosen Plevneliev.



    Within the framework of the initiative, the graduate of the Master's degree programme of Leadership in a Global Environment, Ivaylo Georgiev presented a summary on the topic of "What should be the Role of Bulgaria in the European area." In the material published on the website of the presidential institution, he points out that "working for the building of the three foundations with focus on independence, stability and security, Bulgaria has a role of utmost importance. Its voice during the rotating presidency should be an expression of the unity that comes fromthe country itself and from its partnership with the other countries in the European Community. "


    "What has been achieved by the Bulgarian institutions in recent years is significant and in line with the fundamental principles asserted by the European and international organizations - of freedom, solidarity and responsibility. These are universal categories. They themselves may give an answer in the complicated international reality of challenges since they are part of the philosophy of leadership in a global environment of the younger generation. The whole future is there. And let us face it, whatever you do, the future will come, ladies and gentlemen. " he points out.
