Društvo mladih istraživača Bor
Četri decenije radoznalosti, spoznaje i stvaralaštva

Društvo mladih istraživača Bor formirano je 1976 godine, kao organizacija mladih, da bi postepeno preraslo u organizaciju koja je okrenuta svim građanima i koja pretežno deluje na području zaštite životne sredine i održivog razvoja na lokalnom nivou ali i na širem planu. Danas je osnovni strateški pravac delovanja Društva mladih istraživača Bor  kontinuirana aktivnost usmerena na podizanje svesti i znanja mladih i svih ostalih građana o potrebi i mogućnostima zaštite životne sredine i održivog korišćenja svih prirodnih resursa.

Društvo mladih istraživača Bor, delovanjem samostalno i u okviru širih mreža OCD i partnera, putem obrazovnih, informativnih, promotivnih  i volonterskih aktivnosti i javnim zastupanjem, doprinosi razvoju ekološke svesti, učešću u različitim aktivnostima i povećanju uticaja mladih i ostalih građana u oblasti zaštite životne sredine i razvoja održive lokalne i šire zajednice.

Društvo mladih istraživača Bor opredeljeno je za partnersko delovanje sa svim zainteresovanim akterima za rešavanje ekoloških problema, posebno za podizanje ekološke svesti i demokratizaciju odlučivanja o pitanjima životne sredine. Osnovni programi Društva mladih istraživača, kao što su Ekološki dani Bora, naučno-stručni skup “Ekološka istina”, festival prirodnih i tehničkih nauka, međunarodni omladinski kamp, ekološke škole, volonterske radne aktivnosti i dr. utvrđene su strateškim dokumentima lokalne samouprave (Strategija lokalnog održivog razvoje, Lokalni ekološki akcioni plan i dr.) kao važni zadaci u rešavanju ekoloških priblema i Društvu mladih istraživača određena uloga i zadatak da radi na njihovoj realizaciji. Ključni akteri – škole, kulturne i naučne institucije, ekološke NVO, organi lokalne samouprave, mediji i dr. uključeni su u ove programe kao partneri DMI Bor.

Posebno iskustvo Društvo mladih istraživača steklo je u realizaciji višegodišnjeg  partnerskog projekta OPLANETI SE:RECIKLIRAJ! na lokalno/nacionalnom nivou u okviru grupe ekoloških NVO Zelena lista. DMI je i osnivač Saveza ekoloških udruženja ZELENA LISTA SRBIJE.
