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.

On October 24, the young NGO Our action headed to Kalardovo beach in Tivat. We dedicated this wonderful day to the sea. As soon as we arrived we cleaned the beach and moves from the beach towards the island of Flowers and from the beach towards the airport. After the cleaning action, the last autumn sprint triathlon was held, in which one part of the team provided volunteer support and three of our members, Dejan Besovic, Slavo Bozovic and Dimitrija Vuckovic, took part in the relay. A short break on the beach followed with sandwiches and swimming, and we dedicated the rest of the day to the island of flowers and the Tivat salina, thus crowning this day. We also found bottles, cans and tires in the salina, so we cleaned it during the visit. This day was realized through the project “Youth for a Clean Adriatic” funded by BeMed and the Prince Albert II Foundation of Monaco, and through the program “Nature for Physical and Mental Health of Youth” implemented by the NGO Our Action and funded by institutional support European Endowment for Democracy.

NGO Our action for the International Coast clean up led an action at the location of the right bank near the coast of Blue Horizons along the road to the fortress Grabovac. The bay at this location had huge amounts of garbage from the sea, which someone once tried to clean a long time ago and then could not get out of the location due to inaccessibility. The young volunteers of our organization were joined by the Association for Research of Marine Mammals from Tivat, the NGO “Center for Affirmation of the RE-Population” from Niksic and the citizens of Tivat. We will not talk about the difficulty of cleaning, the limited and very difficult terrain, and the action that would not be possible without the boats of Montenegro + and Lustica Bay. This year again, NGO Zero Waste Montenegro organized the International Day of Coastal Cleaning in Montenegro, in cooperation with the NGO Our action and under the auspices of the Delegation of the European Union to Montenegro, EU Info Center, Beyond plastic Med and Prince Albert II Foundation of Monaco through the project “Youth for a clean Adriatic”. At our location, local sponsorship was additionally achieved thanks to the help of Porto Montenegro and the Waste management company of Tivat.

August 27, 2020 – NGO Naša Akcija from Kotor and the Marine Mammals Research Association (DMAD) from Turkey, also with a branch in Radovići, signed a cooperation agreement on Wednesday in Kotor. The contract was signed on behalf of the NGO by its Executive Director Patricia Pobrić, and on behalf of DMAD by Dr. Aylin Akkaya. The main aim of the cooperation is to connect young people with the association and its long-term research work in Montenegro through education and field work with scientists. This will be offered at various levels; firstly to students of biology and ecology, and then to high school and elementary school pupils. During the activities, young people will also have the opportunity to meet students in the same professions from other countries who both live and carry out research work in our country. The cooperation also aims to support the implementation of the project “Youth for a Clean Adriatic”, which Naša Akcija has been working on since May 2019, and which is supported by Beyond Plastic Med and the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation. By joining forces, the project aims to ensure a comprehensive approach to education on the problem of plastic and other marine waste pollution, as well as the impact of the pollution on wildlife.
At the invitation of our friends from the Sastavci Beach Bar, a new member of the Culture club family, we organized an action of cleaning the shore at Sastavci as well as the currently dry Ribnica riverbed. In addition to the young volunteer force of the NGO Our action, friends of the Sastavci Beach Bar, members of the Green Home and other citizens also responded. We are all aware of what Ribnica looked like in the winter and when the water receded a lot of waste, especially plastic and other packaging, as well as plastic bags remained in the riverbed. A total of 23- 120 litter bags, remnants of various wooden furniture as well as tires were collected. This activity, as well as all others within which we clean the banks of rivers, lakes and the sea, are part of the project “Youth for a Clean Adriatic” under the auspices of BeMed and the Prince Albert II Foundation of Monaco. Also a big thank you to our hosts Beach Bar Sastavci especially for the snack they prepared for the volunteers.
