‘Volunteering’ essentially is an act of service – our programs are for people who want to make a difference through immersive volunteer travel opportunities and cross-cultural learning. As a Cyclades green volunteer, you will experience new perspectives and ways of operating, while engaging in mutually-beneficial learning exchanges with your host community and fellow volunteers – sharing skills, ideas, values, languages and cultural differences.
‘ΟΙ ΠΡΑΣΙΝΟΙ ΕΘΕΛΟΝΤΕΣ‘ is a Cyclades Preservation Fund (CPF) programme supported by the British Embassy Athens (BEA).
This year the programme is enabling British and Greek active citizens & youth to engage with local communities concerning environmental challenges in the Cyclades islands. The selected Green Volunteers are invited to offer environmental work in cooperation with local champions on the Cycladic islands of Andros, Naxos and Syros, and at the same time familiarise themselves with the Cycladic way of life and its unique characteristics.
This year the Program will focus on two priority areas:
Wildlife Protection & Conservation
Sustainable Waste Management
