CONTRIBUTION OF VOLUNTEERS
During their ESC, Volunteers live in Gaziantep reling on natural resurces reducing waste to a minimum and sharing their own tips and techniques to reuse and create clothes, tools and food.
Volunteers organise daily workshops and work cafes for the population of Gaziantep in a mutual exchange of good practices. The workshops, held by both locals and volunteers, focus on different topics every day such as recycling, crafting and gardening and involve specific target groups.
Some of them are filmed and shared on Geged’s social medias to reach a broader audience.
In the work cafes young people are brought togheter to discuss about environmental problems and identify actions that can be carried out at a local level.
