Team Volunteering with the European Solidarity Corps 2023-
in Germany – Italy – Belgium and Poland
Are you looking for a shortterm volunteering experience?
We just opened the call for volunteers based in Germany, Italy, Belgium and Poland to become part of our next exciting shortterm project: “CUFL – Community Urban Farming Lifestyle”
If you want to volunteer abroad, have a life changing experience, create a positive impact, be part of an active citizenship community and make a difference, we are happy to get in touch and learn about your motivation:
The project is an EU-cooperation between youth organizations in Germany, Italy, Belgium and Poland. Every country hosts a team of 10 ESC-volunteers between April and September 2023 in a 2-weeks project with the topic “Urban Farming and Healthy Lifestyle”.
Participants will be engaged in different Urban Farming and Gardening activities in order to promote a healthier lifestyle and to understand the positive impact of such initiatives on the city climate, the environment, freshly harvested food for healthy meals and community building.
The program includes workshops and training sessions that will help participants to be more informed about farming, fresh food and health. In this way participants will gain new skills and competences useful for their personal and social development. During the two weeks participants will have the opportunity to be involved in different types of activities, such as outdoor activities in a local urban farming initiative; study visits to local organizations and healthy cooking. There will also be time to get to know the cities where the projects take place. Participants will take part in 10 program days and 2 days off per week.
VISIONEERS will host 3 international and 7 local volunteers in Berlin and also sent 3 volunteers from Germany to the partner projects in Italy, Belgium and Poland.
