Since October 2016 Ecoclub “Green Wave” has arranged some events on the organizational development with the support of National Ecological Centre of Ukraine and Climate Forum East project, as a member of Ukrainian Climate Group. Four volunteers of Ecoclub have participated in the five-day internship in four leading ecological non-governmental organizations from different regions of Ukraine. In November, Anastasia Laznya visited humanitarian and philosophical CSO Ahalar, where she took part in a multi-platform festival «АHALAR-fest: the power of community experience».
Kateryna Korotka went to energy efficient CSO «Ecoclub», Rivne, where she presented our research in green zones and talked about similar problems in the planning of landscaping in various Ukrainian cities. Daria Buhaichuk learned from progressive CSO «Forza», Uzhgorod, about forest pedagogy helping them hold a workshop in late January. In March Daryna Kulaha visited Poltava to work with the most conscious and “green” public movement «Ekoltava», where she played ecological games on climate issues with schoolchildren using our handbook «While playing change the world».
We should more actively promote the idea of volunteer’s internship and integration of various CSOs activities, working on the ecologically friendly development of our communities in all corners of Ukraine. Such internships can be regarded as an effective and «warm» synergy of efforts of sympathizers and colleagues. Together we can do more!
We are thankful to our hosts who welcomed volunteers, as well as our grantmakers whose financial aid helped us realize this idea of the internship.
The project is realized by Ecoclub “Green Wave” under Small Grants Programme ClimateForumEast II funding with the support of NECU.
