Key Action: Volunteering Projects

Action Type: EVS


"Designing a Greener Future" was a volunteer project with partner countries, held in Athens.

Its main objectives were:

-increase the environmental awareness of young participants,

-promoting an environmentally friendly lifestyle,

-awareness and responsibility towards the environment.

At the same time, it aimed at the multifaceted development of participants, the promotion of volunteering, cooperation between young people from different countries and active participation.

The project involved 4 young people from Russia and Turkey with an increased sense of responsibility towards the environment, a strong interest in volunteering and a need to develop their knowledge and skills. These are young people with fewer opportunities and a keen interest in learning about new cultures and experiencing a more environmentally friendly lifestyle.

During their volunteer activity in Athens, which lasted 6 months, they carried out the following main activities:

-Conducted surveys and created awareness and information material on important environmental issues

-In cooperation with the Municipality of Heraklion, they carried out landscaping activities of the outdoor areas of the park and other public spaces

-Participated in clean-ups of urban green spaces and in educational environmental activities for children

-Participated in public protests and demonstrations on environmental and social issues.

-Informed park visitors about environmental issues and recycled materials.

The main outcomes of the project are the personal, social and professional development of young people and the variety of knowledge, skills and attitudes they have acquired, such as organisational, communication and language skills, their intercultural education and the adoption of environmentally friendly daily practices. Equally important results are the awareness-raising materials created by the young volunteers on key environmental issues, such as videos, presentations and leaflets, the promotion of the spirit of volunteering and increased public awareness of environmental problems.

In the long term, more and more young people are expected to participate in voluntary activities, the volunteer spirit will be promoted, young people will adopt a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and subsequently more favourable conditions for the survival of our planet will be created.
