European Cooperation Day 2018


The European cooperation day 2018 celebration took place in Kindergarten № 6 "Valshebstvo", Burgas, Bulgaria and Kindergarten Nilufer Hatun, Edirne, Turkey on the 21th September. The two events under the motto “Painting our future together" were organized by the Joint Secretariat of the Interreg-IPA CBC Bulgaria-Turkey Programme 2014-2020, with the support of the Ministry of Regional Development and Public Works of the Republic of Bulgaria and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Turkey.

At the start of the program a video connection between the two kindergartens was carried out. Musical greetings presented by the young singers and dancers from Burgas and Edirne merged the two festivals into one and demonstrated that there are no borders for the friendship.

Greetings and best wishes were sent by Mr. Valcho Cholakov - Governor of Burgas Region, Mr. Dimitar Nikolov – Mayor of Burgas Municipality, Mrs. Şebnem Sözer  - Financial Cooperation Directorate, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mrs. Violeta Ilieva -  Head of the Burgas Regional Inspectorate of Education and Mr. Ivan Delchev - Head of the Joint Secretariat.

In the framework of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, the gifted children from both sides of the border discovered the traditional arts and crafts such as Makrame, Weaving and Felting. Working with textile techniques was not easy, but they showed great effort and were pleased with the work done.

The project “Let's write fairytale for Burgas and Edirne”, CB005.1.23.020, implemented under the First Call for Project proposals under the Programme, was presented to the participants and guests by the hosts.

The Finale of the EC Day 2018 celebration was marked with a lot of dances and a quiz. The children from both kindergartens received many awards and certificates to remember their participation in the event.
