In the frame of Active Senior Citizens for Europe project, AGE Bulgarian members organised on 24 February a training for older people’s organisations and senior volunteers on the European Union. Various organisations from Sofia, Dryanovo, Ruse and Plovdiv participated in the initiative.
Maria Petkova, director of Tulip Foundation, presented information about the functioning of the European Union and the impact of the European policies on the lives of senior citizens. Finally, Maria Petkova explained how older people can influence the EU policies. Thanks to the work of the Tulip Foundation and the Bulgarian Red Cross, AGE guide to the EU institutions was translated in Bulgarian and distributed among the participants of the training.
