Meet and greet of the EYOF volunteers

EYOF Önkéntes Nap

The EYOF torch and official song were presented to the public

More than one thousand volunteers attended the VolunTeam Building Day where they had the chance to meet with each other, with their coordinators, and take part in a general training about the event and their future tasks. At this event last Friday the official EYOF song by The Biebers and the Torch have been presented.

The main goal of the volunteer day was to give an insight to the volunteers about the general principles of volunteering, and create situations where they can practice the kind of tasks they might need to solve during the festival. Besides this, the volunteers also had some fun activities and entertainment throughout the afternoon. The attendants actively participated in furnishing the venue and prepared the location for themselves and other invited guests. Besides the practical training in the University Sports Hall, the venue of future Volunteer Centre served as the location for theoretic education about volunteer behaviour and ethics. The EYOF volunteer activities are supported by the 500.000 euros from the Erasmus+ Sport Program of the European Union.

A program pénteken kora délután kezdődött az Egyetemi Csarnok területén...

In the evening, Mr Zsolt Borkai, President of the Organising Committee and Mayor of the city Győr, greeted the crowd, thanked the volunteers for their dedication and participation at the first Olympic event in Hungary. "I hope your enthusiasm toward the event and volunteering will last until the end of the event, as it is a huge responsibility for all of us to complete all tasks during the festival."

A fáklyát a készítők részéről Bogisich Ferenc a QP Zrt. vezérigazgatója és Pató Ferenc, a cég műszaki vezetője mutatta be.

Mr Ferenc Bogisich, the General Manager of QP Zrt. and Mr Ferenc Pató, Technical Manager, presented the Torch which is used during the country wide tour of the EYOF Flame. They explained that the Torch is made out of aluminium alloy, it is 650 millimetre tall, and the top of the installation may be inserted into a 160 millimetre radius circle. The final version of the Torch was selected from 6 different designs, it weighs 2.3 kilograms and was constructed for months, and tested continuously since February.

Mr David Fekete, Deputy Mayor of Győr, Director of the Volunteer Directorate, explained the interest from the volunteers exceeded all expectations. More than 2500 applicants registered for volunteering, and after selection around 1700 of them have been chosen to assist during the festival. From the selected volunteer, 1200 participated at the VolunTeam Building Day, getting to know each other and having fun. After a hard day of work, the volunteers attended the Soulwave concert to finish their day off with some fun.
