The importance of volunteering as part of a sustainable way of life


  • Kristýna Tillová



One of the activities we carry out in schools with children is called: “Who am I?” Pupils have the task of answering this seemingly simple question five times in a row, and then we go through the results together. In the first places, the most common answers are of the type - girl / boy, daughter, best friend, high school student, athlete, etc. In one of the high schools, however, the term "volunteer" appeared among the answers, so I asked a 16-year-old girl what she perceived and felt under this label. She told me that she was a member of the Brontosaurus Volunteer Center and that she was happy to help nature with her activities.
