Enviropreneurs Generation

Ostrov Flores, ktorý sa nachádza v súostroví Azory, ako súčasť globálnej siete biosférických rezervácií UNESCO, organizoval minulý týždeň prvú mládežnícku výmenu. Projekt vytvorila organizácia Coconutwork.

Projekt spája myšlienku trvalo udržateľného rozvoja a možnosť trvalo udržateľného využívania životného prostredia ako zdroja pre mládežnícke podniky vo vidieckych oblastiach. Jedným z cieľov bolo propagovať nápady pre mladých ľudí na zakladanie ekologických podnikov v miestnych komunitách.

Prvé dni sme sa spoznávali hraním hier s menami. Dostali sme tiež predstavu o cieľoch mládežníckej výmeny, harmonograme a očakávaniach účastníkov. Najdôležitejšou aktivitou bolo, keď boli účastníci poučení o aktivitách v oblasti dizajnu. Simulujúc problém v reálnom svete, začali uvažovať o riešení pomocou niekoľkých metód. Jednou z úloh bolo vytvoriť „smart village“ a zároveň vyriešiť problém mesta. Pracovali sme v skupinách, diskutovali, premýšľali a brainstormovali. Počas jedného dňa mali možnosť navštíviť novovybudovaný inkubátor pre podnikateľov na ostrove Flores. Dozvedeli sme sa o ich obchodných stratégiách a príležitostiach pre podnikateľov. Mali sme tiež možnosť mať workshop, kde sme boli poučení o možnostiach, ktoré Európska únia ponúka, a mali sme možnosť sa prihlásiť. Vo večerných hodinách zaujala miesto kultúrna noc. Spojením všetkých krajín do malého „kultúrneho mestečka“ sme mali príležitosť preskúmať jedlo a kultúru každého súčasne.

A samozrejme návšteva krás tohto ostrova bola nevyhnutnosťou. Počas študijného pobytu sme videli najvýznamnejšie turistické miesta v okolí ostrova, ako sú viaceré vodopády či jazerá. Tropická fauna a flóra boli ohromujúce a množstvo endemitov je neuveriteľné.
