¿Why FOLLOWERS?

Because we want to continue to enjoy, live and make the most of the nature that is closest to us. Because we want nature to go on and on and on… That’s why we are Followers. Do you follow nature??

  • Increase awareness of the Natura 2000 Network

What’s that Natura 2000 network.

It is the European network of protected areas

So… what it is?

To give you an idea, 80% of Europeans live near a Natura 2000 site. A space that provides us with services such as water and clean air, food and green spaces to enjoy and live, is worth protecting it, isn’t it?

yeap.. but what’s the point of a volunteering program?

Knowing is loving, and love is protection. Because young people are the present and the future of the network and the future of Europe.

  • Thanks to this new volunteering formula, we want volunteers to be active in designing new ways of understanding what it means to be a volunteer and protect our nature.

How are you going to do that?

Natura 2000 offers many possibilities. You can work in pure and simple conservation, or communication, or management, or in public relations, or in environmental education… Do you follow?

Really? All that?

And much more!! Life followers will offer the widest possible range of options so that you can maximize this experience both personally and in your professional future.

Life Followers project is an environmental volunteering experience made possible thanks to the European Union LIFE program funding, coordinated by SEO/BirdLife to make it even bigger with your help.

What are we going to do?

The aim of Followers is to involve a minimum of 300 young volunteers from the European Solidarity Corps (ESC) and raise awareness for conservation and knowledge of the largest network of protected areas in the world, the Natura 2000 Network. In protected and threatened places and species that need your help.

The activity of the participants involved in the different actions will be broadcasted to the world to let everyone know about the project itself and the results obtained.

“Followers” will have the opportunity to work together with scientists, professionals from the Spanish Ornithological Society, the oldest conservation association in Spain, and other volunteers from all over Europe, which will help them to expand their culture and social skills. They will be able to acquire new skills which, in the near future, will be useful in the world of work. A unique opportunity to get involved and have experiences that will enrich your curriculum and open up their career and professional opportunities.

If you are also passionate about nature, want to work as a team and want to make a decisive and qualified contribution to the project, fill in the form and/or get in touch with us!!

What is the European Solidarity Corps?

The European Solidarity Corps is the new European Union initiative which creates opportunities for young people (between 18 and 30 years old) to volunteer or work in projects in their own country or abroad that benefit communities and people around Europe.

Although the projects can be in different areas in SEO/BirdLife we will be responsible for acting on sustainable development, research, monitoring, protection and conservation of the environment in the Natura 2000 Network in Spain.
