    By on April 17, 2014

    Krakow is the sec­ond largest city in Poland. It's one of the country's tourist centres, with charming churches, mu­se­ums, cafés and bars. But it also holds also the less flat­ter­ing title of one of the most pol­luted cities in Eu­rope. But thanks to a civil ini­tia­tive fight­ing air pol­lu­tion, the next gen­er­a­tion of Krakowians might be breath­ing bet­ter air.

  • EVS Volunteering in a Nutshell

    By on April 4, 2014

    When I told my mom I am going to be an EVS volunteer in Vukovar, Croatia, she got an image of Mother Teresa combined with Francis of Assisi in a white, long cloak made for monks taking care of orphans and people with lethal diseases.

But this was done through pic­tures rather than text.
