Vir Volt stands for InteRnational VolunTeer Village (in French). Since 10 years, the organisation is located right in the middle of nature, near a regional park. Hosting youth from all around the world, learning how to understand and appreciate differences. To plan and act together to protect the environment. To create a positive impact on the surrounding environment and people living there or simply passing by. Here lie our goals for this future village, which each year, is built thanks to youths who come and contribute, with solidarity as their driving force. Vir Volt also aims to become fully eco friendly and sustainable which is reflected in our campsite ; yurts and teepees as rooms, permaculture farming and gardening, water saving projects, reducing and reusing waste. This small village will become great without sacrificing or damaging the surrounding environment whilst always searching better and more eco friendly ways of living.

Work: During this workcamp, you will be in various work projects on-site as well as in the local town alongside local and international volunteers. - 2 New yourts will be installed on-site to be able to host more people! You will help in the construction of the yurts. (Simple woodworking) - In La Ferté-Alais, the former swimming pool is becoming a dedicated youth space. You will help in the refurbishment of the interior walls. (Painting and simple masonry) - Near our village (La Ferté-Alais), an ecological museum is being built. Ancient and traditional farming tools are in need of preserving to be exposed and teach future generations how land used to be cultivated using only human energy. (Renovation) - Inside the workcamp, we are creating small areas with many purposes. Reading, talking, relaxing, planting flowers… With your involvement, you can leave a meaningful and traceable mark by building furniture using recycled wood pallets.
