Youth planting action, Basta ekologika

Today, at Basta ekologika n on Mareza the youth planting action was held. Young volunteers planted over 500 grapes of pedunculate oak for the needs of the Montenegrin Society of Ecologists. We then planted 200 seedlings of medunca (whose acorns we collected in December in Herceg Novi) for the needs of the coastal municipalities of Kotor, Tivat and Herceg Novi, and finally we transplanted 150 seedlings of two-year and three-year seedlings of Trojan, coastal oak and medunca into larger containers. We are grateful to Basti Ekologika for education, invitation and hospitality. We are already looking forward to new activities. This work action was organized within the program “Nature for the physical and mental health of young people” and was funded by the European endowment for democracy. #NVONasaakcija #NGOOuraction #EuropeanEndowmentForDemocracy #Natureyouth #Youthmentalhealth


Educational walking tour Velje brdo and cave Magara

Although we are not able to leave our cities on weekends, there are many locations in the municipalities that young people are not familiar with. So yesterday, a cheerful group of young people, led by the new executive director of the NGO Our action Dejan Besovic, headed to one such location. It is about Velje brdo on which there is, forgotten by many, the fortress Crvena stijena with an incredible view of Podgorica and its surroundings. Then we headed towards the Mareza cave, at the entrance of which there is a strange stone skull. This educational walking tour for young people is organized as part of the program “Nature for the physical and mental health of young people” and is funded by the European endowment for democracy. We consider it extremely important especially in this age of pandemic, isolation, online teaching, stress and general inactivity of young people. #NVONasaakcija #NGOOuraction #EuropeanEndowmentForDemocracy #Natureyouth #Youthmentalhealth

On Sunday, February 7, we went to Basta Ekologika on Mareza in Podgorica to lend a hand to the NGO Paradigma in the realization of the project “Nova moba”.

Acorn collection action

On December 31, 2020, our young team traveled to Herceg Novi for the action of collecting acorns, one of the few specimens of oak still represented on the coast.

Beach clean up Buljarica, Budva

On the first day of November, the NGO Our action organized an action of cleaning the beach Buljarica. 24 enthusiastic volunteers from Podgorica, Cetinje, Kotor and Tivat and representatives of the organization p.k. Squirrel and DMAD – Marine mammal research association, as well as other senior citizens, are half-hearted, ie. 1km of beach from a huge amount of waste in 32 large bags and a larger amount of broken beach furniture, pipes and construction materials. A friend of our organization, Rajko Papovic, and his family presented the volunteers with a fantastic meal in the shape of a fish soup, and there was also mulled wine. After the action, the team enjoyed socializing, swimming and making plans for the future, because it is necessary to clean another branch of the beach, which we did not reach in this action. We thank all the volunteers, especially Kirsi Hyvaerinen, the implementer of Green destinations. The action is realized through the project Youth for a Clean Adriatic, which is supported by BeMed and the Prince Albert II Foundation of Monaco, and locally the action would not be possible without the support of JP Morsko dobro.
