Summer 2022: Discover Sicily and its nature through international volunteering. Without costs with the financial support of EU.
InformaGiovani is offering to volunteers aged 18-30 the opportunity to join its international Volunteering Teams activity in Sicily during the summer of 2022. All activites are implemented in the frame of the European Solidarity Corps.
The activities will be implemented in two Oriented Nature Reserves (Biviere di Gela and Isola delle Femmine, in collaboration with Italian League for birds Protection) and in Geraci, a small mountain town in the Madonie Park. Volunteers will live an international experience through which they will support local operators in the maintenance and restoration of green areas and to raise awareness on environmental issues.
Participation is completely free: all activities are carried out within the European Solidarity Corps project - Volunteering Teams in High Priority Areas "Greening the present, saving the future" supported by the European Commission.
