In St. Petersburg, there is a special project called "History of Tomorrow", devoted to volunteers in the city. Ilya Bokatiy, a volunteer ecologist and fifth-year student at ITMO University, majoring in optoelectronic devices and systems, is one of the participants of the project. Ilya organizes ecological events for students and postgraduates from different countries in the world. With the support of the Student Volunteer Center (in Russian) at ITMO University, he has already managed to implement several ideas, including helping with “Ecological Raids” – an international camp for social projects, where people can get to know different environmental initiatives, and also contribute to taking care of the environment. Ilya spoke with ITMO.NEWS about what kind of volunteering he does and how a newcomer can navigate in the world of volunteering.
