In the framework of the BEACON project under the European Climate Initiative (EUKI), supported by BMU on 21st and 22nd April a National workshop was conducted “The Role of the Educational Institutions on the Road towards Climate Neutrality”.

The concept for a National program was discussed, which would allow the participation of a big number of schools in the initiative for energy saving in the educational institutions. Among the participants were BMU, the Bulgarian ministries of environment and education, teachers’ trade union, schools, municipalities, universities. The discussions focused on the role of the municipalities in their capacity of owners of the schools’ buildings, as well as on the role of the universities for the training of the future teachers.
