Eco Logic and the Local community of Bogomila organized an ECO WEEKEND in order to celebrate the Earth day.

The first day started with waste cleaning action in which the students from the elementary school “Petar Pop Arsov” took part. Next, we had many interesting activities for all citizens of Bogomila, such as: football, table tennis, educational board games related to ecology, and many, many more …

The first day continued by premier show of the documentary film for the village Bogomila, named “VODOMILA”, produced by the organization Kadar. This movie examines the problem with polluted drinking water in this village, as well as the main reasons and relevant stakeholders.

On the second day we had a hiking tour in the nearby mountains together with many kids and adults from the village. During our walk we had some very productive discussions on ecology.

So, to sum up: We had an EXCELLENT weekend which of course would have never been realized without the participation of both, youngsters and adults!
