A fair for volunteering opportunities.
This project team helped with cranberries, an essay competition and a public event in Riga.
Exchange in the materialistic and social sense in Belgrade.
The project team distributed small, homemade medicine boxes on the street and at cultural events. Inside, there was a paper with directions for use: an essay about social equality and a small bag of candy as medicine for apathy. People could make contact with one another and discuss experiences on a homepage and its forum. Participants’ reactions were collected at the end of the project. This project was a contribution to prevent the spread of apathy and to reach out to people in their everyday lives in Latvia.
“As a student in Rijeka, I always had a lot of free time and wanted to dedicate that time to my city and its needs. How could that have been possible?” From this initial question, Martina Milovec and her team developed the project Make Yourself Useful. In 2011, the volunteer fair gave young people the opportunity to put their free time to good use. Young people participated in the fair and found NGOs to volunteer for. After all, volunteer work can be fun!

This project focused on a normal city block’s everyday, specific environmental problems. It aimed to overcome the general passivity of people living in Albania’s capital city with respect to all collective issues, not just in terms of the environment. The project team directed its efforts to the first step of such work: Attention was drawn to the issue and people were encouraged to consider environmental pollution as the beginning of a long-term active thinking process.

…and what can you do without money? In a public action in Belgrade, passers-by got excited about another perspective on consumption. The proceeds from the action were donated to an orphanage.
