Organizing local and international camps is also one of the main things that we do. In the beginning, we have started to organize local, regional and national eco and work camps for kids and youth. After nice experiences in small projects, camps, actions, we decided to start with international eco/work camps. Since 2011. until 2016. we had seven international camps. Volunteers are coming from different countries to exchange their ideas, experiences and work to help local volunteers and communities.
Main topics of our camps are how to educate kids and youth to save environment, cleaning and preparation devasting areas (rivers, lakes, schoolyards, parks…) reparation old schools in villages, creating homes for different animals/insects, renewable energy projects (solar panels, wind turbines, solar cookers, etc.) and also promoting of culture values. Often our volunteers organizing ecological workshops for kids from primary schools and kids with disabilities, trying to show them why is important to save nature and our planet. Our organization also take care about solidarity – have realized a lot of humanitarian actions in our directed, among which are the most numerous “blood donation“. Volunteers are also helping in areas affected by natural disasters.
We are used to organizing different activities like eco-parties, concerts, open-air cinemas, alcohol-free cocktail nights, walking tours in the cities and rural areas, hiking tours to the local hills and mountains.
Our target group for work is primarily kids in elementary schools, then youth and other citizens. We want that children and others from the earliest ages be closer to nature and care about her. Our aim is to raise awareness about preserving the environment, promote a healthy lifestyle and to emphasize the importance of active volunteering, not only in the context of environmental protection but in all aspects.
