The Press Officer of the European Chess Union Boyko Hristov informs:
Great success for the Chess in school project in the EU Parliament. The ECU project “Chess in school” had a great success in the European Parliament. Almost the full needed number of MEPs signatures (369 signatures – 50% +1 from the total number of 736 MEPs) was gained during the session of the Parliament which was held from February 13th to the 16th, in Strasbourg, France. Just a few signatures left for the next session in March.
…”We are very close to the full success. After the acceptance of the written declaration, the EU Commission will start to work on the project “Chess in school.” – commented Silvio Danailov, president of ECU.
All activities and events connected to the project “Chess in school” was held under the high patronage of the President of the European Parliament, prof. Jerzy Buzek and the European MEP from Bulgaria, Mr. Slavi Binev, who is the main supporter of the project.
