Changemaker: Kalin Kalinov (BGR)
The lack of civic engagement by students is perceived as a major problem in our society. We are a 5 person team organizing the Sofia X-Change – 5-day workshop led by professionals in the audiovisual field for students from journalism, film-making and photography specialties. Our desire is to encourage them to approach a relevant social issue of their choice. The effects will be a raise of awareness on certain topics and the possibility for students to focus more on social themes in their work and impact thousands of people around the world. We would like to expand this in a Balkans X-Change and make it an annual event.
