Belgrade Would Be White If You Ride A Bike, Belgrade
Description: Young Researchers of Serbia represents the organization on the national level and is unites three thematically different but interconnected sectors – Youth Sector, Voluntary Service of Serbia and Environmental Protection and Conservation Sector. For 40 years we have been gathering young people round our research projects, voluntary camps, educational programs and environmental campaigns, thus stimulating scientific creativity of young people and motivating them for voluntary work, environmental protection and nature conservation.
Type of Work: Currently, over 80% of European citizens are living in cities, what leads to a permanent increase of car use. Increasing the volume of transport leads to air pollution and increased noise. Car parks are usually takes valuable areas of urban centers. Such types of transport contribute to global emissions into atmosphere. One of possibilities to reduce these problems is to increase sustainable forms of transport: walking, cycling and use of public transport. Volunteers, with technical help of professionals, will remove grass from the sidewalks along river Sava and also from sidewalks that are on territory of municipality New Belgrade. Participants will also promote sustainable ways of transport through the contact with locals, street campaigns and in schools during „European mobility week"
Study Theme: During free time there will be organized bicycle tour of the city for volunteers, as well as a trip to “Veliko ratno ostrvo” with guide. Volunteers will be in opportunity to enjoy rich cultural-historical heritage of Belgrade, also they will take part in workshop on sustainable transport and practice work how to do simple bike repairs.
Accommodation: Volunteers will be accommodated in student dormitories (rooms with beds and bathrooms). Food will be provided by host organization.
