September 2016 – June 2017


Emmaboda, Sweden






It is a divided project between an environmental station and a local youth centre. Both are municipal organisation in Emmaboda Kommun, Sweden. You are going to find many different interesting activities. First of all, the hosting organization is an environmental station where people can get education in how to recycle their waste products. It is environmentally certified in accordance with ISO 14001 and they have existed since 1992 when it became possible to handle waste disposal of bulky refuse with the help of unemployed people. The inhabitants of Emmaboda community can leave in the organization their bulky refuse, such as furniture, newspapers, plastic articles, toxic substances, used electronic equipments etc.

Eventually the organization was expanded to include D/A and conferences. This generated great interest from other parts of Sweden and they have had the pleasure of receiving many study visits by people interested in their knowledge on environmental action, re-cycling and coaching of people in need of re-entering the work force. They have worked with EVS as a tool for youth and organizations to increase European awareness. By informing youth, organizations and municipalities about the Youth in Action program they hope they can inspire curiosity for Europe.
