How do you think this well benefit or effect European students if they volunteer?
A:”Well I think it will effect a lot because, you said there were 900 people volunteering?
(Then) there is 900 more young people, really active people,who have been to Expo, and they’re all informed,because they will take part in Expo for 2 weeks, and they’re really really informed activists basically, that go back to their countries across Europe, and I think it will generate a lot of good things.”
J: “I think firstly that, its a really good opportunity for young people, to get to practice in volunteer work, or any kind of work actually, and I love that it will give a lot of knowledge about the topics, so basically they will be spreading the word about the environmental issues.. so yeah!”
