The European Week for Waste Reduction

European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) is an initiative aiming to promote the implementation of awareness-raising actions about sustainable resource and waste management during a single week.

The Thematic Focus for 2017 will focus on one of the easiest but very important ways to prevent waste: reuse with a twist of repair!

I made a presentation about pollution, climate change, waste management and 3R's in Vidisku high school. My aim to encourage students how become ECO friendly student in the school and at home as well. I shared my personal experiences what I learned in the nature school how to reduce, reuse and recycle the waste. Besides I read a lot about waste management and sustainable lifestyle because I very interested this issue. I hope after the presentation they start to do something for our environment and save the planet.

Halloween event

We celebrated the Halloween event with kids so firstly we went to the fishing and hunting museum.
They could learn about the animals all over the world and informed how to fish in the past. Secondly we went up to the Labanoras viewtower, the weather was pretty windy and cloudy and Labanoras visitor center as well. After that we visited the Paluse cemetery and we burned the candles. The cemetery was full of candles therefore it't was quite beautiful and peaceful.
Finally me and with the kids made the Halloween decoration  in the nature school and than we watched movie (hotel Transylvania), listened music and so on... It was a quite nice day for me, I really enjoyed the programs :)

outdoor time!

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of a special outdoor time. 
German students visited our national park during their excursion through Lithuania. They started planning in spring and luckily a Lithuanian phd student recommended a stop in Aukštaitija. They were looking for a German guide and there I was.
As the weather isn’t really nice this year our options were limited. Nevertheless I planned an entertaining and educating program.
On our first day we took a hike from Palūšė (wooden church, burial mounds) to the botanical path. Even though it was raining most of the time the group stand the trip very well.
Second and last day was time for the big tour through the national park with all the popular sights. We started on the sculpture path and walked to Meironys to see a typical street village. After that the bus took us to the Trainiškis oak, Ginučiai water mill (where our lovely colleague Rimute took over), Ginučiai castle mound, Ladakalnis and of course the sculpture of the working man (let the bell ring!).

Lovely days with lovely people!

Thanks HS Weihenstephan!

Folk costumes presentation in the school

2017 is the year of national costume in Lithuania. Nation-wide there are a lot of folk events and concerts. We had the opportunity to represent our traditional costumes - German and Hungarian as well. In the school of Ignalina we showed students of 7th grade our this part of our culture. After an introduction and a movie about Lithuanian costumes and our presentation we added an active part for the students. They could colour some patterns or make bookmarks. Maybe we do this next week.

Last weekend we had the chance not only to visit the festival Labanorine but also take a look at the visitor's centre there. Then we went to the local market and we bought cups as souvenirs. There was some concert and finally fireworks.  It was a very nice opportunity the visit Labanoras.
