Introduction to Volunteering with the International Hotel Management School Les Roches Global Hospitality Education, Marbella
29th October 2021 – Sport is not at odds with the environment
International soccer championship in Marbella
More than 60 young people arrived here from 4 different EU countries for a friendly tournament. It sounded like the Tower of Babel with so many different languages going at the same time!
One of the peculiarities of the program was that the young athletes had to work on an environmental activity which we, together with the Monitors from the Environment Delegation, were only too happy to provide.
Although they were tired, they did a dune conservation cleanup for a short time at the “Dunas de Artola” Natural Monument to comply with the Environment. Then as an additional reward for their hard work, off they set for the Lance de las Cañas Tower, where they were shown the views of the Alboran Sea from the roof.
A big thank you to all the participants, to their tutors and, as always, to the Monitors from the Delegation of the Environment. Another successful day in the dunes!

Volunteer Day at the La Víbora-Laurel dune in Las Chapas
Because of the rain we had had to cancel the dune conservation work scheduled, with the help of the Fundatul group for Tuesday, 27th April.
We met, unusually, on Thursday 29th April, with the group of volunteers on the La Víbora dune. The aim was to connect up the wooden stakes with sisal rope. This job was long overdue.
Since we were out in the dune, we cut down a false Mimosa (Acacia) we had seen growing quietly out of sight. But we had spotted it! Workers from the Environment Delegation helped with this task, since it needed a chainsaw to fell it. Our volunteers then helped to manually saw the branches into smaller and more manageable pieces for the Green dump.
Another day’s work well done thanks to our volunteers!
