As the part of the the Erasmus+ program European Voluntary Service provides opportunity to non-profit organizations to host volunteers for an exact period of time and financed their travel, accomodation, food, insurance and language study. Through this the volunteer gets the chance to contact int o the life of the local community and work together with the local organization on a local issue.

During the period 2016 and 2017 our EVS volunteers work for rising awareness around the concept of volunteerism and international volunteer opportunities while using methods like up-cycling witch forms environmental attitude as well.

Imagine a flat at the 11th floor of an old communist block in the Budapest periphery. Here we live, two EVS volunteer: Kristi from Estonia and Giacomo from Italy, creating an eco-friendly and sustainable lifestyle in a big city. In our project we work with the Messzelátó Association, a bunch of enthusiasts living in Budapest and focusing on the mission how to live, show and teach sustainable and joyful urban lifestyle. As we moved in our flat only recently there is plenty of work to do in order to improve it. Therefore we are looking for the greenest, cheapest and coolest solutions for our everyday life problems and we want to share with you what we found. We will post on our Youtube channel up-cycling and DIY tutorials of our work and other cool clips of related events in Budapest, hoping that you will find them useful and inspiring.
