Despite the complicated situation related to the quarantine for Kovid-19, the academic staff of the University “Prof. Dr. Asen Zlatarov ”did not give up his scientific performances. The Department of Ecology and Environmental Protection at the University has decided to replace the actual holding of its now traditional scientific conference on “Think Ecologically about the Future” with a virtual one. It was held entirely online in the period 1-3 May 2020. All those interested could follow its progress online via

The conference gave an opportunity for scientific expression not only to university professors and specialists with environmental competencies, but also to pupils and students.
The participants had the opportunity to present abstracts and scientific reports on the latest environmental issues of the modern world in the following thematic areas:

  • The role of cooperation in environmental protection;
    · Sustainable and environmentally friendly technologies;
    · Alternative energy sources to reduce dependence on fossil fuels;
    · Biofuels;
    · Meteorology and hydrology
    · Satellite monitoring on the environment;
    · Protected Areas;
    · Biodiversity;
    · Environmental monitoring;

    · Management of environmental projects;
    · Ecology of agriculture and industry;
    · Ecotourism and the ecological impact of tourism;
    · Waste management and recycling;
    · Waste treatment (factories, landfills).

Academics, students, teachers, pupils, experts and guests took an active part in the online conference. The best works were awarded prizes, certificates and diplomas.

For high school graduates, the diploma is equivalent to an excellent performance (grade Excellent 6) at a preliminary entrance exam in a general education subject. With this assessment, students who have prepared the awarded works can participate in the ranking for the specialties “Ecology and Environmental Protection” (full-time or part-time education) or “Ecology and Environmental Management” (full-time education).
