One volunteer, in Cristuru Secuiesc is in charge of the organisation's radio, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The aim of the radio is to educate people, and not only the local ones, about EVS, to spread inspiration and good vibes.
In the small region of Harghita, four volunteers face each day the beautiful task of visiting the schools in the area, sometimes rural, sometimes in larger towns; to teach the children the importance of respecting and caring for the environment.
