Detail from action
NGO Our Action with its youth volunteers provided the support to the project “Green zone for kids and seniors”. We added to the activity our handmade recycled furniture – wooden benches as well as our supplies of tire figures (Minion, a well, flower pots), and helped with the heavy physical work.
Using this opportunity we also took pictures, set up and opened the eight small library on open in Montenegro. This was a truly excellent initiative of the tenants under the leadership of Ana Ponos. Congratulations to all. We are glad to be able to jump in and help in this community on the boulevard of Ivana Crnojevica in Podgorica.

In the youth center in Podgorica a workshop was organized for young people in the technique of building SUP boards of recycled materials – to be precise of plastic bottles. The guests and the educators of this wonderful workshop were Carolyn Newton and Carlos de Sousa from the organization ,,The Whale company”. The educators explained their mission – that with these SUP boards they have traveled over 12 countries of Europe and in every country they have done a marathon of 42 km to raise awareness of recycling and using plastic waste. Carolyn has explained that the level of plastic in our oceans and other water bodies is alarming and that it is expected that until 2050 in the world’s oceans there will be more plastic than fish.
Besides the explanation of making the board, the volunteers have succeeded to see the pictures and reports from other countries, where they were shocked with the amount of plastic in the canyon of the river Drina, and that the state is more than alarming in Bosnia and Herzegovina and in Croatia, even in Montenegro. NGO ,,Our action” and The Whale company have agreed to long-term cooperation and partnership, and our organization received as a gift the board, materials and equipment to make our own boards.
