For a long time now I have been wanting to really do
something for the conversation of our environment... I mean, renouncing meat, always taking your bike instead of your car and seperating waste is great but I wanted to actively help conserve our nature!
Therefore, I have applied for a volunteering program in Germany called 'weltwärts' (roughly that can be translated into 'out into the world') and got accepted!
The project I will work for is located in the Fundación Metropolitano Parque La Libertad
which is a botanic garden in San José, Costa Rica
. My tasks will include doing workshops about the sustainable use of ressources and the like.
Additionally, the park wants to give children and teenagers the chance for a cultural exchange and offers music shows and artistic workshops.
Even though Costa Rica comprises only 0,00034 % of the world's surface (yes, I calculated that), it contains about 6% of all the world's animal and plant species! I think, it is crucially important to preserve these...
Since the project is promoted by the Bundesministerium für wirtschaftliche Zusammenarbeit und Entwicklung
(department for economic cooperation and development) about 75% of the costs will be covered.
For 25%, however, I rely on people like you to contribute a small amount to make this project possible!
That's why I am asking you to support me - it does not have to be a lot, I am grateful for everything!
