A day in Belarus

Hello everybody! I am here to show you the day of the Belarussian worker in the company called Brest regional committee of Natural Resources and Environmental protection, which is located in Brest, Belarus. I was working there during the summer 2016. Control over protection and use of water resources in Brest region, improving the hydrological state of rivers by establishing of protection zones and work on the survey of springs are the main activities of the sector where I was working in. Mine was water sector, however, there was also air, ground and also trash sectors as well. We were having the office just in the city center and that means if you want to get the space for parking next to the building, you need to come a bit earlier that everybody else.

The day is starting with the planning and giving the instructions from the bosses. After that is done the team (usually) is going somewhere as I had couple of projects going on during the 3 month I was working there. That could be trip to the lake to take the samples or some measurements or to the laboratory for the analysis. We also had some presentations. I remember the moment, when I had a trip to capital of Belarus, Minsk, where our team was giving the presentation about the situation in our region and we have been also listening the other regions as well.

Nobody says NO to lunch, so we had it from 12 till 1 during the day. We were usually having it in the nearest restaurant with my colleagues. And after that coming back to work. The most exiting part was usually during the first part of the day and the second was for making some notes and writing the feedbacks and felling some documents.

All in all, I could say that it was a good experience in the field of Environment and I am happy that I got such possibility to try that on my hands.
