EASPD Annual Conference 2018 will be in Varna
NASO President Georgi Georgiev met with Sabrina Ferraina, EASPD Policy Officer, on 27 June 2017 to discuss in detail the agenda of the next EASPD conference in Bulgaria scheduled for June 2018. The EASPD Board took the decision to hold the forum in Bulgaria and elected NASO as its coordinator. Ms Ferraina and Mr Georgiev discussed the state of play of the social sector in Europe and Bulgaria and exchanged views on key topics and issues.
The international conference will be held in Varna in June 2018, along with the NASO Annual Forum. The event is expected to take place during the first week of the month. The main topics for discussion at the conference will be social entrepreneurship, corporate social responsibility, and disability employment.
More than 120 representatives of social service organisations, experts and professionals from across Europe are expected to take part in the international forum. A guest of the event will be EASPD Secretary General Luk Zelderloo. The planning and carrying out of the event is to be agreed with the NASO partners. The next discussion of the upcoming conference is scheduled for October at the EASPD Board meeting in Montenegro.
