If you would like to try out a European Solidarity Corps project, are interested in environmental protection, nature and education, this project is for you!
We want to send an alarm signal to the people about the recent effects of pollution of the environment, at a local as well as on a global level. We want to raise awareness and show young people in local communities new behaviors how to reduce the impact on the environment. The main objective of “There is no Planet B” is to create context where at least 200 youngsters from Baia Mare learn ways to protect the environment, reduce negative human impact on it and reduce the consumption of non-renewable resources. Volunteers will undertake non-formal education activities, recycling workshops, nature themed trips, watching movies and ted-talk, debates, creating messages and videos on the project’s theme. Volunteers will prepare non-formal activities in schools and high schools, prepare outdoor activities and inform participants about current environmental problems and the current climate crisis.
