On the footsteps of history
Our desire for creative cooperation with the young people leads us to creating a project “On the footsteps of history”, in which the volunteers, from different countries take part. In the project focus on disadvantaged young people with few opportunities, or with economical or geographical obstacles. In the present it is complicated to get employed in the field of art, culture and natural environmental protection. Our goal is to support young people, that by means of informal education and obtaining new practical experiences, they will find occupation in field of their interest. Second main subject of the project is protection of natural environment and development of regional tourism. We believe that through EVS project and volunteers activities we will be able to contribute to improvement and popularizing of this region.
At the same time, our goal is to guide volunteers to the healthy lifestyle. Majority of the project takes place on the farm – “Hradisko Železná”, that is located in the beautiful countryside amidst mountains and mixed forests. Many activities take place in the open nature, such as building replica of old Slavic wooden settlement, permaculture, removing of illegal dump, cleaning and building tourist and horse routes, taking care of horses and riding lessons.
In the project “On the footsteps of history” we plan to host 5 volunteers:
- 3 volunteers – long term – 12 months
