The European Solidarity Corps brings together young people to build a more inclusive society, supporting vulnerable people and responding to societal challenges. It offers an inspiring and empowering experience for young people who want to help, learn and develop and provides a single entry point for such solidarity activities throughout the Union. Thus, ESC fits perfectly to our goals, activities' expectations through hosting ESC volunteers and expected outcomes for us and our society!
The current project aims to strengthen social community, to support actions for sustainable environment facilitation and elimination of local community's ecological footprint as much as possible. The capacity of environment is limited and a common issue for the entire mankind is to conserve this limited global environment so that all people can enjoy a healthy life.The right to a healthy and sustainable environment is getting increasing importance in the light of climate change concerns. With fast-changing geo-political situations and ever-increasing conflicts, conservation of the environment has become a critical factor for building and maintaining peace, reducing poverty, maintaining and improving health, and fostering sustainable development.
Environmental problems, in developed as well as developing countries, have become more complicated and serious in recent years. Industrial pollution, rise in temperature, changing weather patterns, acid rain, depletion of ozone layer, rise in sea level, outbreak of diseases, species extinction are good examples to prove that environmental health is a global issue that concerns all nations of the world.
This program gives youth a great opportunity to work in fields related to environmental protection and sustainable environment without concrete qualification assumptions. Nevertheless, volunteers' interchange enhances the unification of EU people under the idea of quality of life. From EERcomt point of view, ESC should be especially suggested to youth that belongs to a minority with fewer opportunities.
