For the fourth year in a row, the young team of the NGO Naša akcija provided full support to Ocean Lava Montenegro, which is held every year in Kotor. This year, the focus of this very long and hard triathlon competition was teamwork. Research by Salesforce says that: “86% of employees believe that the largest number of mistakes in the workplace occur due to lack of mutual cooperation or inefficient communication.” Accordingly, we want to develop in young people exactly the skills they will need for the future, and a great place for that are events like this. The activity was implemented under the “Life Skills” program implemented by the NGO Naša akcija through the support of the European Endowment for Democracy.
On your feet lightly, before 4 in the morning. The photos were taken between 3 and 4 in the morning and a team of volunteers Our action in the field at the fantastic Ocean Lava Montenegro.
By cleaning the coast, Bigova marked the International Day of Coast Cleaning! ?
The NGO Naša akcija together with a team of students from the Arcadia school and the locals of Bigova today marked the International Day of Cleaning the Coast of this small fishing village. With the team work of participants and locals who met for the first time, and enthusiastically cooperated, 40 bags of 120 liters of waste were collected, of course most of the plastic packaging, a total of 225 kg!
The International Clean Coast Day is organized by @ zero.waste.montenegro in cooperation with @nvo_nasa_akcija, and under the auspices of the EU Delegation to Montenegro, the Ministry of Ecology, Urbanism and Spatial Planning, the EU Info Center, Beyond Plastic, the MED Association and the Prince Albert II Foundation, through project “Youth for a clean Adriatic”. At the local level, as every year so far, the action is supported by the Tourist Organization of Kotor and the Utility Company Kotor.
“We thank everyone who came out to meet us and helped us to mark this day, and leave this wonderful place for swimming in a beautiful condition. We appeal to the Utility Company Kotor to return the container that was in this location until 2019 and thus perhaps motivate bathers and other visitors to dispose of waste at an appropriate location. ” says the Organizational Manager of the NGO Naša akcija Vuk Koljenšić.

Young people are still interested in old skills and heritage! In the workshop of Master Vitomir Vujović in Prčanj, a team of young people who wanted to attend a workshop on making wooden boats gathered to learn more about this old craft. This two-hour workshop included a lot of history, geometry, details about construction and materials, tradition and profession, and that knowledge was passionately passed on by Master Vitomir. After the lecture, the team present had numerous questions and showed great interest and respect for the details of this craft. This third workshop in a row within the program “Youth and Cultural Heritage” aims to encourage as many young people as possible to discover, research and get to know the traditions of Boka and its heritage, which was definitely achieved last night. This activity is organized with the support of the Municipality of Kotor and the European Endowment for Democracy in celebration of the European Heritage Day in 2021, and it has realized another measure of the Local Action Plan for the Youth of Kotor.
In the next period, we are in Žabljak where @blacklakextri is being held, where we are as logistical and technical support! Our hardworking girls and boys are working diligently to make this triathlon the perfect atmosphere for both the competitors and everyone in the organization.

NGO Our action at the 12th eco colony in the Blidinje Nature Park. Last weekend, the young NGO Naša akcija joined their partners the Eco ZH Association in the Blidinje Nature Park at the 12th eco colony, which is financially supported by the American Embassy in Sarajevo. The colony gathered 60 young people from the surrounding countries, who focused their artwork on the landscape of Blidinje. Artists leave their works for auctions, and the money raised from the paintings supports an institution for neglected children in Široki Brijeg, BiH. The art colony also included an ecological cleaning action. NGO Naša akcija held an expert lecture on the use of various arts for environmental activism. In addition to project activities, young members managed to climb to Hajduk Gate. At the foot of the hiking trail, they came across the sign PSD Vilinac on which it is written that (whoever is able) take part of the material for the renovation of the only source of drinking water to the mountain lodge, which is never a problem for our young volunteers! The young team decided to take everything that was, and thus contribute in another way to this local community. The NGO Naša akcija financed part of its journey through the European Endowment for Democracy funds.
