In the week of July 12-14, BROZ in cooperation with Green Foundation organized a camp for their young climate ambassadors.
The ambassadors stayed in BROZ´s camp near the island of Veľký Lél. A rich program awaited them throughout the week, which taught them more about climate change and helped them work on their projects.
It started with an introductory day connected with an excursion around Velkolélsky Island and the eco-farm, which BROZ manages there. It is a place that BROZ set up with the aim of closer access to the eastern part of the Danube floodplain forests and Veľkolélsky Island. There and in several localities nearby, BROZ carries out conservation activities - such as cattle grazing, pruning of willows and planting of native species of floodplain forests. It is an ideal place to acquaint ambassadors with nature conservancy activities.
Tuesday continued with a greening course by poet and copywriter Šimon "Šimpe" Ondruš and a workshop on communicating climate change with Bogi from the Green Foundation. On Wednesday, the ambassadors moved to the Dropie environmental education centre, where they seen the negative effects of current agricultural methods and found out more about the issue of supporting biodiversity in the agricultural landscape. On Thursday, the ambassadors continued to work on their projects - they participated in a project management workshop and then had time with their coaches. At the end of the week, they saw the island and the arm of the Danube from a boat and tested a new climate game from Been there together in Komárno.
