Look at the World through Third Eye
Location: Mersin, Turkey
Period: 20/05/2016 – 17/07/2016
Deadline: 2 May 2016
Third Eye Education and Youth Association of Mediterranean-TEAM is situated in Kazanlı – Mersin – Turkey.
TEAM was founded in 2009 in order to protect the wild and natural life with the local community and youth in and around Mersin. We care especially for the Sea-Turtles (Caretta-Caretta and Chelonia Mydas) which leave their eggs on the coast of Kazanlı-Mersin and are under the risk of extinction. We act as an EVS coordinating organisation in Mersin (sending and hosting volunteers), give training course to youth, build up awareness and European citizenship by volunteering. Our organization is promoting inter-national and inter-cultural values, also youth initiatives and projects in the local community.
Activities from the weekly program;
-Meeting with mentors and project coordinator discussion-briefing
-Cleaning the coast where turtle lays their eggs (the main activity for 12 months)
-Preparing media about environmental protection
-Turkish Language support
-Meeting with local people and informative activities about environment
-Informative workshops – creating awareness about environmental protection, recycling, reusing, reducing among youth and children via theater play, games, flash mobs depend on our groups’ creativity.
During Turtle Season The volunteers are cleaning the beach in the late afternoon and walking on the beach at nights in order to monitor and protect the Mama and Baby sea-turtles from the predators.(like Dogs&Crabs..)
