The project aimed at improving the environmental condition of the Somogy county village Hedrehely, raising the environmental awareness and changing the mentality of its inhabitants in relation to community issues. The project was needed due to the declining environmental condition of the village and the passivity of the citizens. Focusing on the 10-14 years old Roma youth 8 mini projects (such as forest trips, community waste collections, creative workshops, forest school and planting trees) have contributed to community building, the impovement of the participants’ organisational and project skills as well as significantly changed their attitude to community life and environmental matters. Both the appearance and environmental conditions of the village have got improved, while people’s trust and engagement in such activities of the association have been restored. The project is sustainable due to the low costs, the activity of volunteers and members of the association who can and are willing to keep on organising such activities in the future alike.
