A WASH HOUSE FOR BIODIVERSITY | CONCF-8002 | 2023-08-09 - 2023-08-23 | ENVI,RENO | Age: 15 - 17

After many years without hosting any projects, the municipality of Roye, which used to host the Concordia regional office, has decided to reconnect with volunteer workcamps last year. For this second workcamp since decades, the municipality is keen to welcome young internationals in its commune and prepares activities throughout the stay for you

Work: In the heart of the city and the ramparts, sits a forgotten wash house damaged by time. Take part in this project, bring back to life this place where a natural spring still flows and contribute to protect the living environment of the frogs! After a previous workcamp last year and in collaboration with the inhabitants of the town and the city hall, the work will serve to restore this washhouse, in particular by putting back the coping stones (i.e., the stones that make up the edge of the washhouse) that are damaged or missing. Small masonry work and repointing are also planned for various parts of the washhouse. The group will also have the mission to make this forgotten place known to the inhabitants they will meet throughout the workcamp. You can expect a warm welcoming from the inhabitants : welcoming ceremony, meeting with inhabitants and activities with the social action community center and its beneficiaries : the link with local population will be strong !

Accomodation and food: You will be hosted in individual tents near the stadium, with showers and toilets in the building available for your stay. Nearby is the village hall, equipped with a kitchen, and set up as a living space for your visit. The group will be sharing the cleaning chores and preparing meals together. A budget will be allocated to the group leader and you will participate in the grocery shopping and in the preparation of meals, prioritising products from the market and local producers. Handwashing of the laundry, internet accessible through mobile date and/or using French volunteers’ hotspots.
