Behind every EGL Project there are people - those incredible, energetic and enthusiastic humans who make things happen on the field. People who manage the activities, build relationships, share knowledge, inspire local communities, keep an eye on the social impact of their work. Who are the faces of EGL? We want to get to know them, hear who they are, what are their passions, dreams, goals, how did they find themselves in the Europe Goes Local network. Youth work needs many talents and the people of EGL are bringing in a diversity of resources - skills and knowledge together with their vision of how empowered youth looks like. Meet them. Hear their story. Igor Korovin is a Youth Volunteer in Nürnberg and presented the project 'Laut'! on the 3rd European EGL Event.
“I am passionate about helping shape a more inclusive and progressive society. I want to help others - especially young people - to develop their potential, and stand up for what they need and want. I’m also very concerned about climate change and try to convince others to take action against it, as well.
In my free time, I love to go boxing and play video games. My favorite music styles are hip hop, rock, and hard rock. My favorite type of music was heavily influenced by the music my older brother was listening to, for example, Rage Against the Machine, PaPa Roach or Limp Bizkit. I read a lot of nonfiction books, or watch videos or movies about topics like psychology and economics.”
