Due to high rate of unemployment amongst young people in Europe, one of the main objectives of this project is to give an opportunity for the EVS volunteer to improve skills in research methodology of marine ecosystem, data analysis and education so he/she could be in a better position in labour market. Besides the fact that he/she will be a part of projects which are vital for conservation of nature in Croatia, after this project is finished the volunteer will have a better understanding of research protocols. Croatia is a beautiful country with friendly people and many places worth visiting.Přeložit
