Youth for Environment
Start date: May 2, 2016, End date: Nov 1, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The EVS project ‘Youth for Environment’ in Youth and Environment Europe (YEE), the network of youth environmental organisations from 26 countries, gives volunteers the opportunity to experience the daily work of an international youth organisation’s central office (in Prague, Czech Republic) and to contribute to various YEE projects with their own ideas, skills and enthusiasm. Youth and Environment Europe will host 2 volunteers from different countries (Russia and Slovenia) to ensure intercultural learning and the best learning opportunities. To give volunteers the important learning process, we invite them for the project lasting for 12 months.During the EVS project in YEE two volunteers will be able to implement tasks and develop skills in a wide scale of activities, which are split in three parts. First part is the work in YEE office – helping to organise campaigns, activities, publications, projects, website about youth issues and environmental awareness. Volunteers can practice skills of: cooperating in an intercultural team with people from several different countries, working in English, organising, coordinating various projects, networking with member organisations, preparing publications, design, updating website, etc. Second part consists of practical activities in the ecological center Toulcuv Dvur, where YEE office is located – volunteers can integrate into local community, practice Czech language, help in the farm and make practical workshops from environmental education. Third part is the volunteer’s personal project. Volunteers can prepare a project according to his/her interest to practice sense of initiative and entrepreneurship. All these various activities will enable volunteers in different ways to raise their environmental awareness and inform other young people about environmental problems.During the project the EVS volunteers will promote their project on YEE website and other media. They will be encouraged to take part in creating promotional materials about EVS project.
