Project hosted by

Evijärvi is a small municipality with a bit over 2500 habitants. The municipality wants to encourage the local villages to create international contacts and inspire the locals to be active in the community by offering a small fund for the local associations and villages to host a part of an international workcamp. Thus, the official camp host and the funder is the municipality but the work will be managed by the local associations such as local youth organisations, local museum and cultural heritage association and the Lutheran parish. Due to the wide co-operation, the workcamp offers a great opportunity to the volunteers to have a deep dive into the local traditions and history as well as meeting the locals from all ages.

Additional comments

The volunteers will use bikes to go to the works sites. Families are most welcome if the shared accommodation is not a problem.
