Outcomes of the activity

Thanks to involvement in the project "Eco-volunteers" participants were informed about opportunities of environmental volunteer work, learnt more about activities aimed at providing greater knowledge and understanding of the importance of volunteer experience.

I hope that international cooperation with youth workers from European countries and exchange of knowledge in the area of environmental problems will contribute to achieving rewarding experience of working for the betterment of our ecosystem.

By taking part in different activities participants developed their interpersonal, intercultural and social skills as well as improved their career prospects on a not-for-profit basis. TC gave people greater knowledge, acceptance and respect for other cultures, which is vital for future cooperation.
