Arbeit

Alpakaland will be an animal-assisted healing space where Ukrainian refugee children can be psychologically rehabilitated in a smaller community. It will officially open its doors on 11th May 2024, with the first children's camp starting in early June. Our task is to complete all the work needed to get the environment ready for camping by the time it opens. These are:
- simple construction of slats and metal fences and their painting,
- interior works: assistance with plastering and tiling, wall painting,
- erection of large tents according to assembly instructions,
- landscaping (spade, shovel, wheelbarrow),
- gardening (flower planting, plant care, mowing),
- simple assembly of animal runs,
- assembling wooden playgrounds and painting wood,
- decorating for the opening.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Volunteers will live in the community centre of the village. There will be space inside the centre for half of the group (around 6 volunteers) and the other half (6 volunteers) will sleep in tents. MigAid will provide tents and sleeping bags. Camp leaders and volunteers will self-organise the breakfast and dinner, food will be provided. We will order lunch from the next village for each day.

Lage und Freizeit

The camp will take place right next to the "small Balaton" with an amazing landscape. Balaton is close to enjoying the lake, and Hévíz and Zalaegerszeg are the nearest cities with options for gastronomy and cultural programs. Although be prepared Esztergályoshorváti is a very tiny village with 414 residents.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Migration Aid on top of running a refugee transit hostel and Ukrainian school in Budapest, Hungary aim to create a space where children can be psychologically rehabilitated. In this regard, they
devote a special role to animal-assisted healing spaces. As the first test Migration Aid bought in Esztergályhorváti (countryside of Hungary) an empty, but utility-filled plot, on which there are currently only many trees. In an area of about 3 thousand square meters on the outskirts of the village, they plan to build 4-5 Green Shelter homes (suitable for 16-20 people), so the animal-assisted therapy space can help 300-500 affected children and their parents annually, counting on 2-week cycles.

Anreise zum Treffpunkt

Keszthely train and bus station (it is the same) at 7 pm and 9 pm on the 26th of April, from where the host will bring with a minibus the team in two turns to Esztergályoshorváti.
If you arrive by plane in Budapest you have to go to the Déli train station (ca. 1 hour with 100E airport bus and M2 metro), where we suggest reaching a train to Keszthely at 4.35 pm or 6.35 pm. The train from Budapest to Keszthely takes 2,5 hours.

Weitere Infos

No specific experience is required for this work. The volunteer work will be both lighter and heavier physical work, so feasible for girls and boys equally. There will be an initial discussion to decide which activities will be carried out by the different groups.

There are plenty of outdoor activities to choose from: sports, nature and cultural activities to suit all tastes.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

For the past three years, Concordia has been working with the youth hostel network on volunteer projects. This partnership is being developed this year with a new project at the Chamonix site. Thomas, the hostel manager, wanted to strengthen the international and intercultural dimension of his business by welcoming a group of volunteers. The environmental dimension is also an issue at the heart of the priorities of tourism, which is evolving under the impact of climate change. The youth hostel is in partnership with the Mont-Blanc fermes pédagogiques association, which aims to introduce certain sections of the public to the rudiments of balanced systems from field to plate, and to raise awareness among as many people as possible of sustainable production methods, permacultural market gardening and the treatment of small livestock.

The municipality wishes to maintain its paths for the pleasure of hikers. Discover the rich heritage of the town, with its archaeological oppidum, its “capitelles” (huts made of dry stones) and old dry stone walls, and its calades. Your work will consist of enhancing the site by carrying out small-scale landscaping work, clearing undergrowth and making small improvements to the existing calade. This work is therefore essential to maintain the path while allowing visitors, walkers and the curious people of all horizons to come and discover this rich heritage!

Dare to be in the mountains... the high mountains! In the heart of the Mercantour National Park, at an altitude of 2200m, lies the magnificent Sanguinière hut. Built over a hundred years ago from dry stone, this hut was used to shelter shepherds. Now out of use, it will be the focus of this original and unforgettable project. For those who love the mountains, outdoor life and evenings under the stars, for sports enthusiasts, for those who want to learn to live with the bare minimum... dare to go to the mountains!

You will be leading the restoration of the pastoral hut, at altitude, using traditional techniques (dry stone) for the walls and the construction of the larch under-roof. The technical aspects of this project, as well as life in the mountains, require you to be in good physical shape.
Our aim with this project is to return to the origins of international work camps for young volunteers. The location is exceptional, and life in the mountains is unforgettable. It's a unique project that has been organised by several partners.

Taking part in this work camp requires you to be physically and mentally fit enough to: climb the mountain with a lot of weight (your bags, food, tent), live in the high mountains with the bare minimum (no internet), swim in high mountain lakes, respect nature (flora and fauna), sleep in a tent, take part in the restoration of a dry stone pastoral hut, hike back down to the village (1h30min walk each way).You will be asked to provide a letter of motivation for taking part, in which you can describe your experience and/or your desire to take part in this type of project.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Accommodation during the week will be in individual tents, in the high mountains (2200m altitude). You will set up the tents and your bags on foot (1h30min walk).Cooking will take place in a hut close to the Sanguinière hut, where a gas cooker and (rustic) cooking equipment are installed. The toilets will be dry and the showers solar-powered.

Weekend accommodation will be in the village hall, which is a hard-standing building (very large single room, mattresses on the floor). There will be solid sanitary facilities and a well-equipped kitchen.

You will share the various collective tasks and prepare meals together. A budget will be allocated to the leaders and you will help with the shopping and meal preparation, giving priority to healthy, local produce.

Lage und Freizeit

Saint Pons is a very small commune in the Alps (Ubaye), just a few kilometres from Italy. Backing onto the border with the Italian Piedmont, with which it shares almost 33km of ridges, the Mercantour massif is the last promontory of the Alpine arc to the south, before it plunges abruptly into the Mediterranean Sea. From the summit of Gélas, the highest peak in the Mercantour at 3,143 m, you're just 50 km from the sea as the crow flies!

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The commune of Saint Pons, which is very active in mobilising its young people and protecting the mountains, together with the Mercantour National Park, is hosting this first youth work camp in 2024 to restore the La Sanguinière pastoral hut (2200m). It is important to respect the rules of life in the high mountains, so as not to disturb the fauna and flora present.

Arbeit

Walk in the footsteps of mediaeval builders by contributing to the reconstruction of a 10th century castle, located on the hills above the mediaeval town of Noyers-sur-Serein, listed among the 100 most beautiful villages of France.

Considered as a stronghold of Burgundy until the 15th century, the castle of Noyers was known for its extremely strong defences, until it was dismantled in 1599, on the command of King Henry IV, in a context still influenced by the Wars of Religion.
Nowadays, the ruins of the castle spread over a wooded area of 8 acres, which makes it possible to imagine the greatness of the buildings of the past.

Your task will be to pursue the reconstruction of the first tower by using traditional masonry techniques. Some of the work will be done on a scaffold. It is important not to be scared of heights. You may also be required to do some stone cutting or clearing work. By doing this, you will be helping to bring back to life a heritage that has been neglected for more than 4 centuries, to the great delight of tourists and history lovers.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

The accommodation will be set up below the worksite, in a camp especially created to host summer workcamps volunteers, located on the banks of the Serein, a small river that runs through the village. You will have an individual tent. You will have access to toilets and showers. A kitchen will be available to prepare your meals, while a large tent will allow you to organise collective activities or to shelter in case of bad weather. In collaboration with the animation team, you will participate in the shopping and cooking. Following an eco-friendly approach, you will be invited to use local and seasonal products. By the way, feel free to come with your own recipes, it's a great opportunity to share your history and culture with the group. Wifi will be available in the town or by hotspot with the French volunteers and the animation team.

Lage und Freizeit

Noyers-sur-Serein is located two hours from Paris, in the heart of Burgundy, in an outstanding natural area well known for the quality of its vineyards. In addition to its mediaeval architecture, the town has a strong winegrowing and agricultural identity. The "Petite-Etape-aux-Vins" and "Marché-au-Blé" squares in themselves remind us of all this part of the local history. In your free time, you will have the opportunity to talk to the inhabitants and discover all the treasures of the area. Don't hesitate to walk among the streets, small wonders are hidden everywhere. The “Musée des Arts Naïfs et Populaires”, renowned for its vast collection of eclectic pieces of art, is also waiting for you.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

L’Association du Patrimoine Oublié was created in 1998 on the initiative of several inhabitants of Noyers. They were motivated by a common desire to restore the old castle to its former glory. For twenty years, volunteers from all over the world come to help them during workcamps or cultural activities, such as the Gargouillosium, which brings together twenty sculptors each year to make some stone gargoyles.

The site is a must for those who visit the mediaeval town of Noyers-sur-Serein. With its typical squares, half-timbered houses, historic facades and carved stone pinnacles, this village of character attracts tourists from all over the world. Some artists and craftspeople have settled here after being seduced by the old stones. A varied summer cultural programme is proposed each year, with several highlights, including, in July, the "Rencontres Musicales de Noyers”.

Anreise zum Treffpunkt

At the end of the nineteenth century, the land was leased and, given the great distance from other towns and the difficulty of communication, the peasants built modest rural dwellings in the countryside, along the trazzere or near water sources. These were built in clusters called EU? 1/2U? 1/2RobbeEU? 1/2U? 1/2 to not be isolated and to have access to drinking water. Volunteers will map the EU? 1/2U? 1/2RobbeEU? 1/2U? 1/2 area by walking around and taking photographs to create at the end a creative map of the area.

Arbeit

Are you a nature and biodiversity lover? This workcamp is made for you!
This workcamp is the result of a partnership between the Concordia and Echologia associations, located in Louverne. Echologia is a real oasis of nature and promotes strong ecological values. With more than 70 hectares of land, it has an exceptional eco-tourist site at the gates of Laval, the capital of the Mayenne region (in western France).
For this first year of partnership, you will be based at the foot of an old lime furnace. You will continue the construction of a part of the low walls: staking of the mortar, repointing with lime mortar (masonry technique used for old buildings). These walls will become a filtering waterfall for aquaponics. In a few words, aquaponics is the fusion of 2 techniques, aquaculture and hydroponics, which allows plants and aquatic animals to live together in perfect harmony in a closed system. This system works as a virtuous circle, ecological and healthy to produce vegetables, flowers and fruits. You will learn more on site!

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will sleep in individual tents (bring your own sleeping bag and sleeping mat), and will be directly connected with nature. The kitchen and the living space will be set up in a room near the camp.The dry toilets and showers are close to the camp. Volunteers will be able to share their internet connection or use the wifi available at certain locations on the worksite. Laundry will be done by hand. You will share the different collective tasks and prepare the meals together. A budget will be allocated to the leaders, you will participate in the shopping and the preparation of meals, by privileging healthy and local products, and you can exchange your recipes if you wish. You will also be able to eat organic and seasonal fruits and vegetables, produced directly by Echologia and their aquaponics system.

Please note that this site receives weddings on weekends. Therefore, some parts of the site will be privatised for these events. You will not have access to the showers on Saturday to Sunday’s morning. However, water points are still available. Apart from that, the park is very vast so you will not be disturbed by the noise.

Lage und Freizeit

Echologia is located in Louverne, a small village of about 5,000 inhabitants at the gates of Laval, in Mayenne (1h30 from Paris by train and 10min from Laval by car).
This site is an opportunity to take full advantage of the exceptional setting in the heart of nature. You will have access to educational workshops involving the thematics of water, animals, the environment, but also aquaponics, Echologia's main activity!
You will have access to different activities on site: swimming, archery, hiking, etc. Moreover, the site is located a few kilometres away from a leisure centre, accessible on foot, where you can swim!
Please note that the swimming pool and archery will not be accessible on weekends during weddings.
More information on the site: https://echologia.com/

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Echologia is built on the site of former lime quarries, closed in 1963. Abandoned for 50 years, nature took over and transformed it into an exceptional site full of unexpected treasures.
This site is now entirely rehabilitated thanks to the work of a team of enthusiasts. Based on a co-construction approach, each tourist who passes by can contribute to the building by participating, at his or her own level, to the expansion of the site. For many years, Echologia has been organising workshops or mini-building sites with different schools or social structures. Thanks to this partnership between Echologia and Concordia, it is the first time that the site will welcome a group of international youth for a workcamp.

Echologia's approach is proactive and cohesive with their strong ecological values. The development of the site is respectful of the environment and heritage in the principle of sustainable development. It is also the first aquaponics training centre in France.

Commit yourself to the heritage of Châteaudouble, a small and typical mediaeval village. For nature and history lovers!

The village inaugurated last year an open-air green theatre on an esplanade overlooking the village and its listed monuments with a magnificent unobstructed view. The place will host artists, concerts and many other events for the inhabitants and tourists, participating in the dynamism of the village.

The site being vast, several restoration works are planned to vary the pleasures! Your work will consist in restoring the dry-stone walls by sorting stones (salvage and purchased ones), cleaning the area (ground clearance) and constructing the area’s entrance.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will be accommodated on site in individual tents with access to a building for communal living, toilets and meals. Handwashing of the laundry.

Remember to bring your floor mat or air mattress and your duvet (very important!!). As we do not have a bathroom on site, we will install solar showers.

The group will share the cleaning chores and prepare meals together. The budget will be allocated to the staff and you will participate in the grocery shopping and in the preparation of meals, prioritising products from the market and local producers.

Lage und Freizeit

Like a real eagle's nest, overlooking the Nartuby gorges in the upper Var, Châteaudouble has retained its authentic mediaeval appearance. Châteaudouble takes its name from the presence of two castles in the Middle Ages, each of them located on a bank of the Nartuby. Only the remains of the Tower, a square keep, dating from the 12th century, which overlooks the village, still exist today.

Perched on its narrow plateau, Châteaudouble is a village that invites you to discover its alleys, wander between the houses and climb up to the ruins of the castle, on the plateau of Sainte Anne.

The village offers a wide range of leisure activities, including visits and walks, swimming in the rivers and gorges, kayaking in the gorges or at sea, hiking, local sports such as pétanque, and taking part in the various village festivities. In Châteaudouble, a village of 200 inhabitants, there are two bars and one concert a week in the summer.

As the village is isolated with few public transport links, the vast majority of activities take place on site. Outings to the gorges and/or the sea can be organised.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Châteaudouble is a mediaeval village with a very rich heritage and sumptuous monuments, some of them being even listed. Very dynamic and invested in the development of its historical and natural heritage, several projects are currently undertaken by the village. This is a renewed partnership with the commune of Châteaudouble for the second year. Our current project is part of a development plan for the plateau of Sainte Anne, on the heights of the village, which became last year an open-air theatre with stone terraces and dressing rooms for artists in the middle of old cobblestone ways, dry-stone walls as well as an old chapel. Our work camp and your commitment will enable us to restore and enhance this magnificent site for the benefit of the population and tourists.

Anreise zum Treffpunkt

The meeting point is set at Les ARCS DRAGUIGNAN train station, at 5:00 PM CET on the 5th of July.

An "on-demand" rural bus service operates in the area, linking Draguignan and Châteaudouble; the coordinators will contact you in the days leading up to the worksite with specific instructions on how to get to the worksite.

From “PARIS Gare de Lyon” train station the journey by train to the ARCS DRAGUIGNAN lasts about 4 to 5 hours, make sure that you have enough time to have a stress free travel.
Train reservations can be made about 4 months before departure on the SNCF website, link below: https://www.sncf-connect.com

As we are in an area where it can be very hot during the day, bring a hat or cap, sunglasses, sunscreen, a small backpack and water bottles. As the village is far from the meeting place and has no public transportation, it is imperative to be on time at the meeting point! For the public meals and the open house, you can bring a few specialties from home that are easy to carry with you.

On the last day (19/07), the departure time is usually set in the morning.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Terre des hommes (Tdh), a prominent Swiss organization dedicated to aiding children in need, is collaborating with the Egyesek Youth Association to organize summer programs for refugee children in Budapest and Győr, Hungary. The project aims to support the successful integration, well-being, and prospects of refugee children and young individuals under 25 from Ukraine in Hungary, by providing opportunities for refugee and local disadvantaged children and young people to participate in new types of educational and skills development programmes using digital technologies. These activities take place in the Resilience Innovation Facilities (RIF). RIFs are first and foremost, spaces where children and young people can feel safe and secure, no matter where they come from or what their background. In addition to providing a safe space, RIFs offer a variety of skill-building workshops in Ukrainian and/or Hungarian. During these workshops, children and young people create and learn, using various digital technologies (2D/3D design, 3D printing, laser cutting, sticker making, etc.).
