Dear colleagues,

Volunteers Centre Skopje are looking for organizations that would be interested to participate in following non-formal education projects that are intended to take place next May and June in Macedonia:


Travel web portal Tour Union would like to invite volunteers of your organization to participate in projects of Great Baikal Trail (non profit volunteer-driven organization which aim is to develop, maintain, promote, and protect Russia's first network of hiking trails around lake Baikal).

If you are interested in these projects, please, inform your volunteers.

The next generation of low consumption lighting systems is set to slash energy consumption in Europe. New developments, such as organic LEDs, could result in huge energy savings.

According to the project, lighting now accounts for a quarter of Europe's total energy consumption. Development of alternative lighting systems with greater energy efficiency will have an important impact on European energy consumption.

While current low energy and longer-life light bulbs offer energy savings by comparison with incandescent bulbs, they have drawbacks. In particular, hazardous materials, such as mercury, prevents such bulbs from being viable long-term solutions. Fortunately extensive research into low-energy lighting has uncovered new technologies that could revolutionise the sector.
