The main goal of our association is to develop the relationship with the environment we are all part of. We work in the environmental, cultural and community framework. We manage a cultural community centre called “ZiWell”, where we organize most of cultural activities (theatres, workshops, concerts..). We also organize activities in the nature or at schools (ecological educational programmes about frogs, rubbish, bumble – bees, bats…). 

The volunteers, coordinated and supported by the staff, will participate in these activities:

  • to create, design and prepare materials for the educational programmes for kindergartens and schools and participate in them
  • to participate in the frogs rescue during their reproduction period
  • to cooperate in the preparation of the Summer Camps programme and participate in them as an assistant of the camp leader
  • to present their home country and EVS programme in public
  • to take part in the activities of other organizations, the field of activities are depending on the participant´s interests
  • gardening

  • flexible
  • responsible
