International School of Eco-Volunteers project team discussed further cooperation
Participants discussed establishing a platform for international training, networking and joint activities of eco-volunteers. Development of environmental volunteering is especially important for vulnerable Arctic regions and border areas.
The Project will produce a field-tested strategy for eco-volunteering activities based on international practices including recruitment, training and methodological materials, established international team of eco-volunteers and established network of organizations involved in cooperation with eco-volunteers in Russia, Finland and Norway.
All this will form a solid platform for future joint educational and practical environmental activities for eco-volunteers based on the best international practices in our northern regions.
Events within the Eco-School will be held online on June 2022.
