Green Solutions to Improve Cross-Border Ecological State
International School of Eco-volunteers
UB acting as full partner
Short description of the project
The objective of the project “International School of Eco-volunteers” is to establish a platform for international training, networking and joint activities of eco-volunteers. International School of eco-volunteers will improve the knowledge and skills of environmental volunteers through the exchange of experience between volunteers from Russia, Norway and Finland. The project will produce a field-tested strategy for eco-volunteering activities based on international practices including recruitment, training and methodological materials. It will establish an international team of eco-volunteers and a network of organizations involved in cooperation with eco-volunteers in Russia, Finland and Norway. In addition, a web-platform will be created to help communicate and spread information about activities.
Project will form a solid platform for future joint educational and practical environmental activities for eco-volunteers based on the best international practices in the northern regions. The partners of the project in all three countries are actively involved in upbringing the eco-volunteers and aim at making the regular International School of Eco-volunteers a good tradition.
We will develop on-line digital platform/web site for eco-volunteers to communicate and extend networks within project implementation area and beyond.
