Use-it is looking for new volunteers!!!

The European Voluntary Service (EVS) provides young Europeans with the unique chance to express their personal commitment through unpaid and full-time voluntary activities in a foreign country within or outside the EU. In this way, it seeks to develop solidarity, mutual understanding and tolerance among young people, thus contributing to reinforcing social cohesion in the European Union and to promoting young people’s active citizenship.

Last week “Zoho”, the area in Rotterdam where our hostel is located,  was the stage of the event “Open Zoho”. Many companies opened their doors that day and showed their work. Zoho is a part of the city in development, and gets more and more beautiful and attractive. Plenty of artists, architects and leisure activities around.  Also in our hostel it was open day.

Three guys and two girls from Mesh Print Club painted our window.

Open Mind Rotterdam and Youth Information Center JIP organised the event “Nothing but Love”. It was the closing event of a campaign against cyber bullying, and part of the bigger international ‘No hate speech movement’. Postcards with guidelines about behaviour on the world wide web were collected and signed by many youngsters and handed to policians of Rotterdam, to ask attention for this topic. Spoken word artists and AfroJet Swag gave a nice swing to evening.
