Seize the opportunity to gain useful skills and environmental awareness and build a new relationship with nature! #Teens #Walk&Sports #Nature #Woodwork #100YearsOfWorkcamps #lunarcamp PARTNER: ALA (Associazione Liberi Artigiani) is an organization active since 2009, that works to develop an educational framework for adults, youths and children, and is very active in the creation and promotion of various workshops. The educational approach and methodology used are a mix of non formal methods, art, creativity, and outdoor activities. The aim of the organization is to promote social inclusion, active citizenship, respect and environment protection, as to support the development of future citizens that are aware and critical, able to express their will and ideas, to exchange opinions, and lead a lifestyle respectful of the environment and natural resources. The organization works at both a national and an international level and cooperates with public entities, schools and NGOs. In recent years ALA and Lunaria worked together on more than 20 international workcamps for adults and teens, involving more than 300 international volunteers, promoting environmental awareness among the local communities of the Sabina region. By joining this workcamp you will contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals: SustainableCommunities SDG11 and ResponsibleConsumption SDG12. PROJECT: The project will take place in Montasola, a picturesque medieval village, 604 meters above sea level. Its goal is to help the local community to renovate and redecorate some areas around the village with different kinds of work, mostly pertainng to the renovation of wooden structures erected by previous volunteers. Volunteers are strongly encouraged to take part in the numerous workshops available, to gain valuable skills and strengthening the bonds with other volunteers and the local community. This project is part of a “megaproject” involving 3 municipalities (Montasola, Casperia and Roccantica), consisting of 3 indipendent workcamps taking place at the same time, that will culminate in a large final event involving all the volunteers from every camp, working together to organize the event’s activities (food, music, enterteinment) and to involve the local community and institutions that will participate. This intercultural festival has the aim of bringing people together and show the results of the volunteers’work to the community.
Work: The volunteers’ work will revolve around the renovation of previously built wooden structures in the area surrounding Montasola, and the construction of new structures if necessary. So the main tasks will be to clean the wooden floors and the surroundings, to perform a new coat of paint on older structures, to redecorate patios, to build expansions to existent constructions, etc. Volunteers will be able to take part in a wide range of workshop and formative activities. Workshops will focus on the manufacturing of typical local products according to traditional techniques, such as cheese, handmade pasta, bread, pizza, soap, etc. Several activities focus on movement and contact with nature: many excursions are organized (hiking, trekking, orienteering, night under the stars, etc.), in addition to the possibility of practicing several sports (climbing, low ropes, yoga, etc.). Additionally, there is the chance to learn farm animals handling and milking from the locals. Furthermore the volunteers will be direcly involved in the organization of 2 intercultural festivals with the local community, one halfway through the camp and one that will reunite the 3 concurrent workcamps in the region at the end of the camps.
Accomodation and food: Accomodation will be in the gym of a local school, fitted with toilets and showers. Volunteers will have access to a working kitchen and will cooperate in the preparation of meals, using available local and organic products, according to seasonality and sustainability. Volunteers will also have to share cleaning duties.
Location and Leisure: Montasola(RI), Lazio, central Italy, on the slopes of Tancia mountain, in the Sabina Region. Sabina is part of the Apennine chain, and is approximately 40 kilometers northeast of Rome. The landscape is made up of rolling hills covered in olive trees, which rise towards steeper mountains, dotted by oak and beech woods, and small medieval villages, castles and monasteries. The landscape has remained substantially unchanged over time and almost not affected by modern building development. The volunteers will have the opportunity to spend their free time in various leisure activities, such as hikes, workshops, sports practice. The closest terminals are Fiumicino and Ciampino in Rome. Montasola can be reached through the Cotral bus line from Poggio Mirteto, which you can in turn get to from Rome via train (FL1 Fiumicino-Orte)
