Day Conference on Voluntary Work

The day conference on voluntary work and youth that took place Monday 28 May at the Theatre Casino of Sanremo, ended successfully.
The morning seminar was on voluntary work in the international cooperation and the afternoon on the project-competition: “Un Ponte sul Cuore” (A Bridge Heart).
The entire event was organised by the Seborga in the World Association with the patronage of the Sanremo Municipality.
The seminar was particularly intended for volunteers working in the emergency services, Red Cross and other assistance services, while the afternoon event was more intended for students who managed to collect with the help of their parents during the last Christmas gifts and educational materials for their counterparts in Moldova.
In particular the project was developed among students from schools in Sanremo and in Mihailovca (Moldova) with the aim of writing and preparing essays regarding the mutual knowledge of their countries.
The best works were selected and chosen by various youth community councils and presented during a live link-up with the students in Mihailovca.
The prizes consisted of PCs, DVD players and MP3 payers. During the event the singer Saro Salemi dedicated a song that he wrote particularly for this project.
