Inspiring Stories Are Waiting For You!
RAISE Project organised an international competition to collect the volunteering stories with nature of young people among the age of 13 and 18.
Heroes from Europe told us about their adventures and activities done as volunteers to save nature and make our environment better!
28 really inspiring stories applied to the competition, written by heroes from 4 different countries (Turkey, Russia, Greece, Italy). The applications were all read and evaluated by a committee of 5 people from the RAISE Project partnership. Hatice Özgüneş (15 years old) from Bursa / Turkey became the winner of the competition with her story titled “From Green to Black” and is invited to participate (accompanied by an adult) to the Closure Event of Raise Project in January 2017.
We are glad that we are not alone: there are many heroes around the world trying to save nature! Some of them have planted or saved a tree, some have raised awareness about their local environmental problems and some others have created new ways for reducing waste etc.
All of the inspiring stories are listed below, have a look and get inspired!
