Dear British house partners,
We are inviting you to join us in giving back to the community having a focus on volunteering for nature. We all have different approaches and practices of doing that but for the first time, we are doing it together as a British House.
MEPI not only encourages volunteering and service within youth but also in general. In the partnership with organizations from NGO, corporate, and public sector MEPI has developed and carried out examples of good practice in the field of Corporate Volunteering.
A companywide volunteer day is a great opportunity to leverage all British House staff to do good in the community. This is also a great informal opportunity to meet old friends and colleagues and make new ones.
We have identified a local organization working in the public interest that needs our help; in May we put The Tivoli, Rožnik and Šiška Hill Landscape Park (TRŠ LP) in the spotlight.
Within a half-day corporate volunteer activity, we will focus on two issues in the Park: removing the invasive plants and collecting trash. The event is going to be held on Friday, May 14 from 12 to 4 p.m.
We will be working in smaller groups. Each group will be led by one Coordinator from TRŠ LP. The bags and latex gloves will be provided. If possible please do bring your own gardening or work gloves because there are easier to work with. We recommend outdoor clothing and appropriate footwear (hiking or walking shoes). Make sure you also bring your own reusable water bottle (it’s a win-win for you and the planet).
In order to attend this event please do register online (until 12 May at the latest): https://forms.gle/dWzkRaCYo8Lfwt7t9
We are looking forward to meeting you all.
