Type of Work: The aim of the workcamp is to enhance the ecotourism offer of Sremski Karlovci, by developing the infrastructure for realization of ecotourism programmes and increasing the visibility of areas within the special nature reserve “Kovilj–Petrovaradin Wetlands”. The activities on the workcamp contribute to raising awareness on the importance of conservation of special nature reserves. This is the second year VEM is organizing “Wetlands Conservation” workcamp. Volunteers will be clearing the vegetation and cleaning the riverside field to build a beach, and by doing so creating attractive destination where tourists and locals will be able to gladly spend their time.
Study Theme: During the leisure time we can offer guided tours around the town and Novi Sad, the second largest city in Serbia or Fruska Gora mountain, depending how we make an agreement with volunteers.
Accommodation: The participants will be accommodated in rooms of a public institution, where the mattress, sheets and sleeping bags will be provided, and bathrooms, working rooms and meals will be provided as well.
Approximate Location: Sremski Karlovci is situated on the slopes of the Fruska Gora mountain, just by the river Danube, in the region of Vojvodina, North Serbia. It is a small, picturesque town with rich past and represents the centre of the Serbian culture and history. It is the place of the oldest Serbian high school and the oldest Serbian theological school, together with the Chappell of Peace (place of peace treaty between the Ottoman Empire and the Holy alliance, famous for the first usage of the “round table” in history). Besides natural richness (Danube and Fruska gora) there is Kovilj-Petrovaradin wetlands.
