Centro per lo Sviluppo Creativo Danilo Dolci
Centro per lo Sviluppo Creativo “Danilo Dolci” is based on the experience of social and educational work carried out by Danilo Dolci and his collaborators, which started in Eastern Sicily back in 1952. The Centre stemmed from the need of offering the local communities a reality committed to practically solve the local problems, developing a creative space in which fostering awareness and bottom-up planning were the center of the action, paving the way for a real change. Since the beginning, the main focus of the Center were non-violent education practices as well as the development of a methodology – the Reciprocal Maieutic Approach – able to ease creative development at school and in the local territory. At present, Centro per lo Sviluppo Creativo “Danilo Dolci” is a non-profit association involving young people and adults, which mainly acts through projects in the educational field carried out in cooperation with schools, universities, institutions, associations and social groups both at local and international level.

119 Secondary School “Academician Mihail Arnaudov”
The Academician Mihail Arnaudov School has about 123 teachers and 1595 students. From the 5th year onwards, students can choose the path they wish to take. They can choose between different subjects: mathematics, Bulgarian language, foreign language, science and education, physics and sport. The number of students who want to graduate from our school is constantly increasing. The organisation of work is at different levels of education and the maintenance of good relations between children of different ages is a challenge we face every day at school, which reveals the need for teachers and educators to be well prepared and ready to learn throughout their careers (development of their skills, knowledge and qualifications). The school management does its best to cooperate to improve the working conditions, motivation and education of teachers and the working atmosphere.
