Organized together with NICE (Never-ending International workCamps Exchange) and supported by Greening Asia fund since 2002. The forests problem is serious also in Mongolia. Before 1990, the forests are covered 10% of land, but 7% today. It?s caused by cutting trees without any controls, forest fire and global warming. Other side it takes a long time to grow trees in Mongolia and May and middle of October is the only seasons to plant trees in Mongolia.
We will plant trees in Mongolian workCamps Exchange`s camp and some other places. This is the only season in Mongolia to plant trees. There are increasing activities by some organizations to plant trees but it takes a hundred or more years to be grown, so we should also join this movement by global power!

When: MCE was established on January 11th, 2001 by an individual who had participated in the
3rd Training &Networking Workcamp of NVDA in Vietnam.
Why: Before 2000, there were no workcamp organizations or international voluntary service in
Mongolia. However, there was much need for international voluntary projects to improve a
Mongolian society. Through practical work projects, MCE hopes to encourage public awareness
of Mongolia’s social problems and promote local actions.
