Five projects of Karelia will take part in the competition of volunteer grants

The Ministry of Education and Sports announced the results of the regional stage of the All-Russian competition “Region of Good Deeds”.
Karelia has chosen the best practices in the field of volunteering, which are planned for implementation next year. They will represent the republic at the all-Russian competition “Region of Good Deeds, which will be held under the Education national project in June 2021.

The Petrozavodsk State University intends to develop a culture of reasonable consumption and respect for the environment.

The new initiative will complement the events that the university is already carrying out in the framework of the “Clear Conscience” and Green crew projects. We want to continue work on installing separate waste collection systems near PetrSU buildings and dormitories, to hold educational events in the regions of Karelia and a thematic festival. Today, more and more students are choosing various eco-activities, so we hope that this project will attract new volunteers,

– explains the curator of student associations of the trade union committee of PetrSU Ksenia Petrova.

The authors of the DK Volunteers project, the Opora charitable foundation for supporting social and cultural initiatives, are planning to popularize volunteering in the field of culture in small towns and rural areas.

Today, not everyone is familiar with the possibilities of how to prove themselves as a volunteer. If our project receives financial support, we will conduct a series of seminars on volunteerism on the basis of 10 cultural institutions in five districts of Karelia. We will help prepare curators from among the employees of cultural institutions who will further supervise volunteer teams,

– says the project manager Nadezhda Dorofeeva.

In case of successful participation in the federal stage of the competition, Karelian projects will receive funds to implement their ideas. Let us remind you that last year the republic’s initiatives were among the winners of the “Region of Good Deeds” with a total grant support of 5.8 million rubles.
