Project summary:

This short-term EVS project enables volunteers to participate in our organization’s activities and cooperate with other institutions in order to organize local ecological festival “Kazanlak” for the 10th time in a row. The project will take place in the town of Kazanlak (Bulgaria), during its famous Festival of Roses, and it will be dealing with:

  • cleaning nature (collecting trash) in the area,
  • various workshops for recycling and composting,
  • meeting and working on projects with environmental, tourist and accredited EVS organizations,
  • shooting and screening of eco movies,
  • creating trash art items,
  • organizing eco workshops,
  • presentations of the festival in schools,
  • organizing concerts with young talents under the brand “A small stage”.

A documentary about the project will be shot and recorded. All 17 volunteers participating in the project from EU program countries should be ready to work as photographers, scriptwriters, directors, writers, and artists. Our organization aims to keep you amused in any way and occupy all your senses!

Our project gives an opportunity for young people from different countries to realize their common values by creating different works of art and embody in them their own cultural identities and backgrounds.

Volunteers will take part in the publishing process of the local paper journal devoted to the volunteers, “ДоброволциТЕ” (“The
Volunteers”), available also on the web in newsletter format. Volunteers will appear in the “Wall of Volunteers”, an installation to remember the previous projects of the NGO and the volunteers who took part in them.
