How Big We Are!
From May 27 to June 1, Montenegro is hosting the Games of the Small States Of Europe, which will be Green in partnership with UNDP. With the slogan “Be fair by nature”, Montenegro 2019 is part of the Programme “Green Games”, supported by Olympic Solidarity, whose goal is to create a sustainable sport event that will help develop the environmental standards related to the organization of sporting events. This “small” but still exciting multi sports event is reserved for athletes coming from the 9 European countries with less than one million inhabitants. And, behind every sporting champion or grassroots sports club is an army of volunteers who have dedicated their time and efforts to sport. An unsung hero might be anyone and so far, more than 5.000 people from around the world applied to help out at the Games. Montenegro 2019 will shine a light on these fantastic volunteers and UNDP is lucky enough to be involved in a small way in their recruitment and training thrilled to see that the enthusiasm and awareness around volunteering continues to grow in Montenegro!
