MARVAO - Planeta Alecrim. [in a Natural Park] ESC11 - Portugal


Participatory Countries: Greece, Germany

Place of Venue: Marvão

Within EER Deadline: 3 July 2021

Official Deadline: 4 July

In this individual volunteer project we will host two volunteers in the region of Marvão for 8 months starting in August, in Portugal. The activities to be developed depend on the profile of the volunteers, their interests, expectations or needs, as well as their assessment of community needs. However, we have three guidelines that should guide the development of projects: Education Through the promotion of non-formal education methodologies and regarding learning as a lifelong process we aim to improve core competences, knowledge and skills of our community. The promotion of a holistic education that looks at the learner as a whole, not relegating his body (rhythm, movement, body expression) or his spirit (ideas, motivations, feelings) to the background. Underlying all education and training initiatives will be the promotion of European values, highlighting solidarity, social cohesion, intercultural dialogue, active citizenship or gender equality; Health and Wellness Health promotion and wellness activities, as well as healthy lifestyles and active aging. Examples of activities could be: exploring Serra de São Mamede Natural Park, promoting outdoor leisure activities, fighting fires or reforestation; raise awareness for recycling and other sustainable policies, farming on the community garden; encourage sports, or other regular practices such as dance, yoga, meditation; or encourage a healthy diet with culinary workshops; Creative arts, social innovation and culture Activities to promote the creative arts and culture, such as cultural nights (with special emphasis on the cultures of the participating countries), cinema cycles, music days, artistic workshops, plays, concerts, and others, aiming at the empowerment and capacity building of the local community.
