first_imgFrom July 23 to August 12, 40 young volunteers are staying in the city of Nin, organized by the Croatian Heritage Foundation, the City of Nin, the Tourist Board of the City of Nin and in cooperation with the Nin utility company Komunalac Nin doo, Elementary School “Petar Zoranić” Nin and Solana Nin.Volunteers work on preserving the heritage and preserving the natural and cultural beauties of the Nin region in several different locations. Project participants came from 15 countries: the United States, Brazil, Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Ecuador, South Africa, Bulgaria, Romania, Macedonia, Spain, Slovakia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, and are mostly descendants of Croatian emigrants.Through the ECO HERITAGE TASK FORCE project, the need to preserve our natural and cultural heritage has been emphasized, so the partner in the implementation for many years is the Fund for Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency and the local community where the project is implemented. This year it is the City of Nin, which is rich in its historical contents and is a tourist destination that will be introduced to young people from all over the world through the project of the Croatian Heritage Foundation.The ECO HERITAGE TASK FORCE project began in the midst of Croatian war suffering in 1992, and the emigrant youth accepted it, enriched it and continued to maintain it with great enthusiasm to this day. Recognizing the value of this program, every year Croatian friends from abroad and representatives of Croatian national minorities from neighboring countries are joined by their friends from all over the world. This year, too, the voluntary program ECO HERITAGE TASK FORCE is traditionally organized, in which young people over the age of 18 work on environmental protection, restoring parts of the Croatian natural-monumental and cultural-historical space. The need to preserve our heritage is a challenge, so the inclusion of young emigrants is a natural need because they also come from Croatia and have a desire to contribute to the preservation of its natural environment and assets and thus get to know the homeland better.The project has so far been held in Plitvice, Skradin, Trsteno, on the island of Ugljan, in Daruvar, on Školjić, in Pula, Motovun, Duga Resa, Bakar, Zaostrog, Koprivnica, Rovinj, twice in Ston, Vis and Šibenik.last_img
