On August 7, the next youth exchange that the Fundació Catalunya Voluntària hosts in Vilanova i la Geltrú will begin and continue until August 15. This activity will host boys and girls from Greece, Italy and here, Catalonia, with the aim of introducing permaculture and learning to take advantage of the natural resources of the Mediterranean territory. Adarró is the name of the Iberian village located in the sea district of the Garraf capital, which will serve as an inspiration for the activities of the exchange. It takes place within the framework of the European Year of Cultural Heritage.

This exchange aims to introduce new urban design methods and techniques that respect the environment, such as bio-construction or organic farming, as well as creating a multicultural environment where young people from different countries and with different languages ​​can interact, enjoy and enrich each other.

The program is organized by the FCV, together with the youth organizations United Societies of Balkans, of Thessaloniki, Greece, and Associazione Culture ARCI Strauss, of Nicolesi, Sicily, Italy, thanks to the support of the Erasmus + program of the European Commission.

During the exchange, workshops, games, simulations, visits to different entities of the territory and presentations will take place, among other activities promoting teamwork, creativity and solidarity.

If you are between 18 and 25 years old and want to join this experience, you have to complete the registration form  that you will find on our website and send it to projectes@catalunyavoluntaria.cat as soon as possible or register in this link.

The selected people will receive an email, where the following steps are mentioned. It is also important that the participants have enough level of English to communicate and actively participate in the activity.

“Adarró, more than 2500 years ago” will be a unique project that will give you the necessary tools to know and learn about the natural resources that our territory offers us. This way, we can achieve small and large changes that allow us to live in a society that works with nature, and not against.
