The association "Green Key" exists since 2006 with the aim to preserve and improve the environment on the principles of sustainable development. This is the 2nd workcamp they organise.
Nis is the third biggest city in Serbia and is becoming more popular as a tourist destination but has a poor source of information (for example, there is no info material nor even an info panel at the airport, which since recently has become a point for low cost flights to/from Serbia). The aim of this workcamp is to provide more quality information and better access to info materials for the visitors of Nis. The volunteers will take and collect photo materials in order to make brochures "Environmental guide for hikers" and "Photo tourist informator“. They will also design the info boards "Tourism potential of the city of Nis," as well as hiking and walking trails on the mountain Suva Planina. They will write informative texts, translate in their native language sand post on social media. Recorded materials will be used for organizing a final photo exhibition. One day is planned to set up a mosaics in one of the public places in the city. Also, one day is reserved for cleaning public places of waste together with the locals and campaigning about responsible waste disposal.
The volunteers will be accommodated in the elementary school in Nis, with the use of a kitchen, showers and toilets. Meals will be prepared by the volunteers, from the food provided by the organizers, so you could try out your favourite family recipes and learn what people from other countries usually eat at their homes. Bring home-made recipes!
