Siin üks edulugu innustamaks noori oma kogukonnas noortevahetusi ellu viima. Sloveenlased pälvisid oma kohalikult omavalitsuselt preemia. Seega võib rahvusvaheline projekt ka kohalikku edu tuua :)
On 22. 02. 2022, the Park Theatre in Murska Sobota hosted the award ceremony of the mayor awards to volunteers who were the most self-sacrificing and most dedicated to the implementation of voluntary work in the Municipality of Murska Sobota in 2021.
In the Best Voluntary Event category, the special commission selected several voluntary campaigns carried out by Društvo kreativne mladine as part of the #JoinUs project (Erasmus+ Youth in Action).
The voluntary event proposed by the association took place as part of an international youth exchange with the title "#JoinUs", from 23rd of July to 1st of August 2021 at Hodoš and Murska Sobota. 44 participants from Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary, Estonia, Lithuania, Romania and Germany, aged between 14 and 30, took part in the project's activities. They prepared activities and voluntary actions. Their activities included getting to know volunteering through various examples of good practices, and in concrete work actions they volunteered to help local institutions and individuals.
The project was fully funded by the European program Erasmus+ Youth in Action and the Slovenian national agency MOVIT.
