Today, at the Seljanovo II location near the truck market, a work action was held to arrange a children’s playground. The action was organized by the Tivat Youth Team and the NGO Nasa akcija, with the support of Komunalno Tivat doo and students of Knightsbridge School. The construction of the playing fields was financed by the company Montenegro Concierge DMC through its social responsibility program, and their employees joined in the field work. We especially want to thank one dad, Mr. Ivanovic, who also joined us. This is a rarity in volunteer activities, and extremely important for the transfer of knowledge to younger generations. In the next period, it is planned to launch a Facebook page for social responsibility so that all citizens who want to can join various actions or provide other types of support on the ground.
NGO Nasa Akcija and Omladinski Tivat went to Gornji Stoliv and Bigova today. The goal of today’s action is twofold: 1. collecting autochthonous chestnuts in order to create seedlings and thus pollinate the threatened part of the chestnut tree, 2. collecting fruits as well as maginja seedlings in order to create autochthonous souvenirs that young people would produce through entrepreneurial workshops.
This action is the second in a row as part of the Green Montenegro movement that has taken off across the country. In the previous weeks, eucalyptus seeds and oak seedlings were collected. All seedlings, seeds and sprouts will be taken care of at the Muo Youth Educational Center until the moment of planting.
On Wednesday, we had the opportunity to speak with Katica Nišavić (@gingerbread_pht), a long-time activist and one of the beneficiaries of the Erasmus project. She shared with us her one-year volunteering experience in a Belgian atelier, as well as the opportunities for European exchanges that this fantastic program offers.
