It is not only the Olympics that are in full flow, as we have already seen 27 organisations take part in the 30th Alliance Anniversary Campaign and we have 3 new projects starting this weekend :) Gold for volunteeing!!

30th Alliance Anniversary CAMP - We are EcoFriendly, Russia, 30.7.-16.8.2012 

The workcamp is organized in order to develop volunteers’ initiatives; to share volunteers’ experience among participants from different countries; to promote intercultural dialog and mutual understanding. During the workcamp volunteers will share their experience; discuss actual youth problems, plan mutual volunteers’ activities, participate in ecological projects, learn culture of Russia and culture of each other.
Volunteers will develop park and yard areas, hold workshops to local children about recycling and reuse of trash, about healthy lifestyle. As well there’ll be round table, where we are going to speak about participants’ volunteer experience and how voluntary services are developed in their countries.

30th Alliance Anniversary CAMP - RE-CREATOR, South Korea, 6.8.-18.8.2012 

The project is held in cooperation with re-cycling designer. The designer re-creates the work from Ugarbage  from our daily life such as furniture, book, toys, and clothes. The artist runs the workshop to promote the value of recycling and creation. The material gets new usages after his works in the end. Volunteers will be trained to use various tools and daily garbage. They will try to create new creation with their own ideas. Then we have exhibition in the street to promote the value of recycling. Participants will also renovate the workshop place (old school building).

30th Alliance Anniversary CAMP - Miradors for animal observation - Chevetogne Belgium, 6.8.-18.8.2012

Le Domaine provincial de Chevetogne is a big centre for environmental education and social tourism. There is a huge park situated on 550 acres and a modest castle =).
Pupils from primary and secondary schools come there to participate in activities that focus on discovering the nature and rural way of life. During the summer, many kids and families make a one-day excursion to the Domaine or stay there for holidays to do sports, picnics, observe nature.
Motivated and professional staff from Le Domaine de Chevetogne hopes to share their passion for the environment with international volunteers.
Volunteers will assist in the planning of a trail in a protected area of the domain: building a stairs
& an observation area, prune some branches, maintenance of construction of older Workcamps.
