This event will be postponed due to bad weather. The new date will be announced soon!
200+ students and volunteers will join forces on January 18th, 2022 in Palestine for a clean-up campaign organised by Palestinian Heritage Trail, local partner of the CROSSDEV project.
The campaign will take place along the newly developed hiking trail in the villages between Beit Mirsim and Battir and is part of a long commitment of the project to enhance environmental sustainability, promotion of eco-tourism, and engagement with volunteers and students, who are encouraged to take part in their own local community’s development activities.
