Environmental protection volunteer, Cordoba, Argentina

You are the one who can assure these children to have the chance to grow up safe and healthy.

On this project you’ll be helping a non-profit organization to promote cultural, educational, scientific and research activities to protect and preserve the environment in Córdoba. They have an active role in promoting habits that help the environment and aim at achieving sustainability.
Global warming and its increasing effects have shed light on the many global environmental issues. Our planet’s fragile ecosystem is under attack on many fronts as a result of industrialization and our growing transportation infrastructure. But in a globalized world, local environmental solutions have deep international impact: the littlest thing can contribute to improve local environment conditions and therefore global environment. Working on this project you will help in Córdoba but the effects will be global.
Córdoba is surrounded by a lot of nature. Just a few miles outside of the city you have beautiful mountain ecosystems that are threatened for different reasons such as open sky mining or tourist activities. The city also has the problems that every big city faces daily such as water shortage and garbage disposal problems.
