  • Nature path of volunteering

    The nature reserve ‘Rinella’ is the place open to those who has a passion for nature and who wishes to make nature sustaininable. People visit the nature reserve to gather more energy/ power to fight daily stress and matters, to refresh their minds and get rid of the stress from the whole body. The main idea behind this created project, is to encourage young people to become active citizens in their community,  to get them involved in the protection of green areas, to become part of local society and to be a model example for any youth living in the same region. Moreover it gives them the opportunity in acquriering new knowledge and exprience in sustainable organic farming which will make their value on the labour market higher and increase the possibility to find a future job.

    We believe that nature makes all people around the world peaceful, therefore the nature reserve is the right place to build mutual understanding and tolerance between different youth representing various culture habits and traditions.

    Through the cooperation between other European organizations involved in volunteering we will visualize the European cooperation in youth field and get over more activitites for volunteers. Due to the fact that in this nature reserve each year a number of interns and volunteers are coming from different Universities, shools and other youth organization, our promotion of European cooperation in youth field is more than visiable.

    The participation of young people will be the foundation of the project, as well as the inclusion of young people with fewer opportunities. While volunteering, youth will develop or improve their competence, increase the value on the labour market and bring experience which they can utilize in future personal or working life.

    To have the volunteers comming from a less privileged economic and cultural background will bring a challenge to our organization  and assist to gain knowledge and experince, which would be shared between the participants and our members, during volunteering time.

    To follow the annual priorities in the proposing project  we will prepare a number of trainings and practical workshops to develop and improve volunteer’s competences for personal,social and professional development, in order to support their creativity and intiatives in selfemployment and entreprenurship.

    Considering the second annual priority on unemployed people will have equal access to the project to stimulate their domestic unemployment and to enhance the mobility of young unemployed people and get them actively involved in society.

    Through the volunteering in a nature reserve, young people will develop environmental manners and attitudes towards nature, as well as raise the youngester’s awareness and mobilization around global environmental challenges and climate changes.
