Wer organisiert das Projekt?
Montendre is a small village in the midst of pine forests that since 1996, has been home to one of Solidarités Jeunesses' international centers: La Maison des Bateleurs. Every summer for 25 years now, the village organises its weekly night market in partnership with many local associations. The first night market in the territory of Haute Saintonge, this local event brings significant vibrancy and dynamism to the territory. This year, the goal is to integrate the principle of responsible consumption into the market through actions that raise awareness, and that experiment with recycling and waste all while incorporating an international dimension! It's in this manner that the village of Montendre wished to create an international workcamp, around its festive event, in order to integrate a stable, responsible, and international dynamic. This will also be an opportunity to talk about volunteering and citizenship through your engagement in this project.
With this project, you will be actively working for the Sustainable Development Goal n°12 from the United Nations: Responsible production and consumption.
Volunteers need to stay for the total duration of the project. A Skype interview will be organized after receiving the VEF + motivation letter of the applicants.
