Velebit Association Kuterevo (VUK Croatia) is excited to announce that the project Mountain spirit – Strategic EVS in Nature Conservation is approved. The project will start in February and will last for 30 months until the end of July 2020.
MountainSpirit – Strategic EVS for Nature Conservation is a project involving several EVS short and long-term volunteer exchanges in the mountains of Croatia, Kosovo, Serbia and Bulgaria. It aims at combining efforts of international volunteers and local people from mountainous/rural areas for nature conservation activities in protected areas or species.
