ACS IB Students Participate in an International Conference

On 21st and 22nd March three of our seniors - Iskra Markova, Ivan Yotzov and Georgi Rusinov - participated in an international conference in Belgrade with representatives of six other schools in the Balkans offering the IB programme.

The first day of the conference was dedicated to presentations and discussions on multinational corporations and their effect on the economies of the Balkans. Ivan and Iskra had one of the best presentation by all accounts. On the second day Georgi presented Bulgaria's culture and identity and students were engaged in a pretty tough discussion on national identities and prejudices in the Balkans. Throughout the conference our students were able to communicate and make friends with other students from the Balkans in the spirit of tolerance promoted by the hosts.
