A youth exchange project "A Volunteer. TO be or not to be? No2" was implemented in Epirus region of Greece in end of April 2015. The youth exchange lasted for 9 days and 28 young people from Greece, Latvia, Romania and Lithuania participated in it. This project was co-funded by European Union and was implemented under youth Mobility of Erasmus+ programme.
This was the second youth exchange of YCE devoted to volunteerism and development of rural areas and as expected, it reached much bigger impact on locals and participants as our first project about volunteerism. During the project, we managed to do various volunteerism actions, such as, clean up action near Agious river, painting and drawing on a school and kindergarten of Kalpaki village, restoration of a natural forest path that leads to a waterfall, participation in Let's Do It! Ioannina clean-up in the center of Ioannina town, paper collection for recycling in several mountain villages of Epirus region, as well as informative actions for promotion of environment care and volunteerism among locals. Of course, cultural activities were not forgotten- participants had much fun to learn about Greek and each other's cultures and customs as well.
