Thus, different dynamics and games aimed at raising awareness among young people towards the environment and the analysis of the situation of youth unemployment in the activities of the organizations to which they belong develop participants were proposed and how from volunteering participants can actively promote to help communities and governments to alleviate an increasingly obvious and most pervasive problem: the gradual disappearance of our countryside, our origins and multiple consequences that entails for tourism, the economy, boosting the rural life and, first of all, nature itself.
This project aimed to be an analysis of how sustainable are our activities and, especially, to draw a number of proposals that can allow us to be much more consistent in our actions to preserve the environment and consequently our peoples.
