An international volunteer team arranged a spring zone along the University Lake in the ecological camp ECO CAMP TSU 2017. 15 volunteers from 7 countries gathered in Tomsk to share their experience of participating in volunteer projects and to improve the territory of the University Grove.
For two weeks, 10 international volunteers from Vietnam, India, Laos, Zimbabwe, Poland, and Japan, with 5 volunteers from TSU, have been working to improve the springs along the University Lake: They cleared the territory of rubbish and twigs, painted old ones and installed new benches, and helped clean the Grove.
For the project participants, a rich educational program was organized, informal seminars, where everyone shared the experience of protecting the environment in their home countries. A PhD student of the Biological Institute, Ksenia Karbysheva, talked about protected natural areas in the Tomsk Region; Representatives of the movement "Green Ray" discussed the city's environmental projects. The participants also visited the Tomsk Collider forum and got acquainted with the Tomsk initiative for youth.
