On Thursday, 5th November, 2020, the second day of the Get2It Kick-off event was held. Even though the number of participants who were present in the premises of the City management of Sremska Mitrovica was reduced to the representatives of the Youth Office of the City of Sremska Mitrovica, Red Crosses from Ruma and Sremska Mitrovica, as well as to the representatives of project partners: Tourism Office of the City of Sremska Mitrovica and the Regional Development Agency Srem, other participants from Croatia, Serbia, Czech Republic, Slovenia and Italy successfully attended the event onilne.

The topic of the event was volunteering, actions of the volunteers from the Red Cross Varaždin, as well as legal framework of Croatia in that respect. The participants had the opportunity to get involved into interactive and very constructive discussion on the topic of volunteers’ qualities, their motivation to volunteer, as well as benefits for any individual and the community in this perspective. General impression and the conslusion of the workshop was that being a volunteer primarily means that a person is eager to help, that this is a self-conscious and capable person to look into problems and sometimes not so good fortunes of their neighbours and fellow citizens, while all the rest of the benefits and qualities are developed gradually and naturally.

The next workshop is scheduled for 12th November, 2020, Thursday at 11 a.m.
