Volunteer support to the Association of Gorica Hill supporters

After a break of several months, we are finally on the field together with our friends, the Association of Gorica Lovers. This time, fire protection was being done, a dozen dried pines and cypresses were pulled out of the forest with a bunch of branches. While over 20 volunteers of our organization are on the action of cleaning Vrmac, the younger team, under the watchful eye of the new coordinator for Podgorica, Andreja Stevović, came to help in Gorica.
This activity and support in Gorica is part of our program “Nature for the physical and mental health of young people” with the support of the European endowment for democracy.

Successfully completed a large action of cleaning on the Vrmac mountain

As a sign of the celebration of Earth Day, the action of cleaning mountain Vrmac was completed today with incredible success. The action included cleaning fire-fighting roads and hiking trails, as well as collecting waste from the slopes of the Tivat and Kotor sides. The trail Lepetane-Orašje and Plavda-Orašje was cleaned by the teams of the Tivat Protection Service with the voluntary fire brigades from Tivat and Boka. The Pod Kuk – Gornja Lastva trail was cleaned by members of the Triathlon Club Herceg Novi and Kotor and the mountaineering club “Vjeverica”. From the big hut on the Vrmac plateau, 56 volunteers headed in 5 directions in the action of cleaning the waste, of which the most difficult location was right next to the Škaljari fortress, primarily due to the large number of tires. 10m3 of waste was collected. The volunteers were primarily young people from the NGO Naša akcija, the Tivat Youth Team and the Knightsbridge School, but were also joined by families from both cities. The action was organized by the Municipality of Tivat, the Municipality of Kotor and the NGO Naša akcija, with the support of Porto Montenegro and the Tourist Organization of Tivat, as well as utilities of both cities.
The NGO Naša akcija initiated this activity as part of the program “Nature for the mental and physical health of young people” supported by the European Endowment for Democracy.
We thank all the participants and volunteers who dedicated their day to Vrmac.

Support for the construction of a greenhouse in Berane #novamoba

For the second time, our young members had the opportunity to support the Nova Moba project implemented by the NGO Paradigm through the US Embassy. This time we headed to Berane, where we helped build a greenhouse and plant towers. More and more young people are being trained through such projects on how to build, use tools, create and plant with their own hands. Through the program “Nature for the physical and mental health of young people” funded by the European endowment for democracy, we join such and similar projects that are of social importance.

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

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. This is the third year in a row that our organization finishes the year with this activity, with our now experienced collectors inspecting every acorn. Sufficient specimens were collected for seedlings and for donation to the ecological sections of primary schools “Njegos” and “Nikola Djurkovic” in Kotor. This activity is implemented as part of the program “Nature for physical and mental health of young people” implemented by the NGO Our Action and funded through institutional support of the European Endowment for Democracy, and aims to activate as many young people to spend their free time in nature. not only their health but also learn to love and respect their country.
