This project has been set up by FSL-India in collaboration with local NGOs with a primary aim to educate lower economic and social groups, the local community, youth and children about environmental issues and good practices.

In this project a volunteer main task would be to develop and support through creative education about nature and ecology conservation.

By doing so, you will educate the local community on the economic and social benefits of environmental protection and conservation of nature and natural resources. You will have to visit schools, colleges, and youth groups and organise environmental educational workshops and disseminate information to various stakeholders on environment protection.

Eco-Clubs is a governmental initiative that was introduced 5 years ago in all Government schools. As part of this initiative, Eco-Clubs were formed in schools and the members comprised of school children. The aim of the Eco-Club was to introduce environmental concerns and good practices to the school children to make them actively involved and to be aware of the necessity to protect nature. However, most government schools lack personnel and financial means to run the Eco-clubs effectively and efficiently. As a result, Eco-clubs have been formed in most schools but ceased to function.

As a volunteer your task will be to design and run the Eco-club sessions in the schools with the help of other volunteers, a field assistant and teachers. Being creative, innovative and loving towards children is important to work in this project. You will also get the chance to work with the local community in order to organize some outdoor events for the children.

There is an ample opportunity to work with the local community where our volunteers try and create model streets. The local community is introduced to Solid waste management, building of compost pits and the separation of bio-degradable material. There is a lot of scope for interested volunteers who have prior experience to bring in their ideas and implement them in the project.

The Info-sheet will have more information regarding the individual projects with schedules, and activities.

Note: Minimum application for Environmental Education is for two months

The Participation Fee is 14,500 Indian Rupees for each month (approximately 200 Euros per month, depending on the exchange rate)

Health and sanitation is the priority areas in development, both in rural and urban areas. Especially, in rural areas open defecation is quite common and sanitation is very poor. Lack of Proper education and an understanding about the need for hygiene and sanitation and a general lack of awareness are the main culprits.

FSL-India is making its share of contribution to address this problem by implementing Water and Sanitation based programs through multiple interventions that includes 'Dream Village Project', Environment Education Project and also through volunteer service in various locations.

These projects along with other objectives, support construction of toilets in the villages and generate widespread awareness on various potential diseases due to want of proper hygiene and sanitation.

A sustainable future for the planet can only be achieved if both animals and people are part of the solution. However, it is not at all uncommon to see animals - domestic, stray or wild often exploited and taken for granted. It is a forgotten fact that even they need food and water. Conservation and management of animals have a significant bearing on the survival of every species by helping in promotion of rational use of environment to provide a high quality of living for mankind. Animal care and conservation envisages not only the protection of the existing populations of animals and their habitats, but also the breeding and farming of rare animals.

As a volunteer you will be assigned to work with organisations involved in the field of impacting political and economic climate, habitat protection, breeding and farming, special wildlife projects, legislative measures, nurse ailing and injured animals. The major activities that you may be assigned are: Providing care and treatment, conducting surveys, documentation, policy advocacy, designing appropriate IEC (Information, Education and Communication) materials, community awareness and education.

DATA FINE: 31 / 12 / 2016

The challenge of food security, especially in the face of rising food prices, places a serious responsibility before the country. Despite immense advances in the agriculture sector, many people still sleep hungry or live under the threat of food shortage. The degradation of natural resources is also a major concern as it severely impacts the livelihoods of poor and backward communities in rural areas. In this backdrop, sustainable agriculture is one of the most effective ways to respond to the challenges of the rural community. In essence, Sustainable Agriculture refers to a set of practices adopted for cultivation that are least harmful to the environment while also ensuring a good crop. It involves crop production methods that support sustainable natural resource management to increase crop productivity, maintain biodiversity, and also are economically viable and socially acceptable.

Organic farming is generally sustainable; however, organic produce can also be cultivated on large scale industrial farms that are not sustainable. Soil and water management, organic farming, integrated pest management, and integrated nutrient management are common practices promoted under sustainable agriculture. Sustainable agricultural development, as well as employing organic farming methods, seeks food and nutritional security, improved livelihoods for our people, safe ecosystems, and sustainable economies of agriculture.

As a volunteer in this field of work you will -

Work with the farming community and the associated organisations that assist in sustainable agriculture and/or organic farming.

Conduct community awareness on the importance of sustainable agriculture.

Facilitate training and capacity building on crop productivity, how to maintain biodiversity, water management, organic farming, integrated pest management, and integrated nutrient management, surveys, documentations etc.

Indian society is characterized by discrimination, deprivation, exploitation, subjugation and marginalization, particularly on the basis of caste and ethnicity. The Scheduled Tribes (STs) in India suffer from exclusion, neglect and under-development due to their geographical and cultural isolation and separation from the mainstream. The greatest challenge that India has been facing since independence is the proper provision of social justice to the scheduled tribe people, by ameliorating their socio-economic conditions. Scheduled Tribes, Scheduled Castes and de-notified tribes constitute the weakest section of India's population, from the ecological, economic and educational angles. They constitute the matrix of India's poverty.

Healthcare and the lack of easy access to it prevent people from upward social and economic mobility in India. Healthcare facilities in India are difficult to access. Government hospitals, though technically free, are so overwhelmed by the incongruity between the massive population of patients and the deficiency of qualified medical staff that they cannot cope with the load. Rates of children suffering from under-nutrition in India remain high despite the economic growth. In India 20 per cent of children less than 5 years of age suffer from wasting due to acute under nutrition. More than one third of the world’s children who are wasted live in India (UNICEF).

Under-nutrition is substantially higher in rural than in urban areas and is responsible for 35% of deaths among children under 5 and 11% of the total global disease burden. Under nutrition often an invisible problem jeopardizes children’s survival, health, growth and development, and it slows national progress towards development goals.

According to the World Health Organization, a majority of the top 10 causes of death in India are both treatable and preventable. Therefore, to supplement the effort of the Government, many organisations are working in India to provide health care to people and improve the nutritional status of the children.

As a volunteer you will be working with healthcare centres or community based organisations and tasks will include :

Catering to the healthcare and nutritional needs of the rural community.

Organising health camps; providing health and nutritional education to children, youth/adolescent and community.

Conducting community awareness; facilitate training and capacity building for the health workers, community mobilisers on preventive, curative and rehabilitative health intervention.

Conduct surveys; documentations; designing appropriate IEC (Information, Education and Communication) materials on health and nutritional aspect.

Alla scoperta della biodiversità. I viaggi della bellezza in barca a vela

PAESE: ITALIA
CONTRIBUTO: 590
TARGET: Adulti
DATA INIZIO: 24 / 3 / 2016
DATA FINE: 31 / 3 / 2016

PROGETTO: 

Un campo di volontariato in barca a vela è un modo eccezionale di promuovere la tutela del territorio marino e, contemporaneamente, sviluppare il senso della bellezza che la vita a bordo di un imbarcazione può trasmettere. Non ci può essere vera salvaguardia dell’ambiente senza la capacità di apprezzare il paesaggio naturale. 

Durante il campo si realizzeranno interventi concreti per migliorare la qualità ambientale, mostrando all’equipaggio come vivere sul mare e con il mare sia un’esperienza unica e indimenticabile. 

CIRCOLO: 

L’A.S.D. Diversamente Marinai è stata fondata nel 2011 ed ha come obiettivo principale quello di rendere accessibile il mondo della vela e della navigazione a tutti, integrando le marginalità sociali e le disabilità. Nel corso di questi anni ha promosso diverse iniziative, collaborando con la Regione Toscana ed il Progetto GiovaniSì. Le rotte percorse dalle nostre imbarcazioni hanno solcato l’Arcipelago Toscano portando nei porti equipaggi misti, progetti scolastici e percorsi di trekking ambientale.

LUOGO:  L'isola d'Elba, posta a circa 10 chilometri dalla costa, è la più grande delle isole dell'Arcipelago Toscano, e la terza più grande d'Italia (223 km²).

Insieme alle altre isole (Pianosa, Capraia, Gorgona, Montecristo, Giglio e Giannutri), l’Elba fa parte del Parco Nazionale dell'Arcipelago Toscano, le cui acque rappresentano il più grande Parco marino d’Europa. I suoi fondali sono caratterizzati da un’ampia varietà di habitat. La grande diversità biologica dell’Arcipelago è dovuta, anche, alla diversità delle coste e dei fondali.

LAVORO:

- Pulizia delle spiagge accessibili solo dal mare, attraverso la raccolta dei rifiuti di materiale inquinante;

- Avvistamento cetacei: Il monitoraggio di delfini e balene è da anni di interesse centrale per la salvaguardia delle specie mediterranee che vivono nelle acque dell’Arcipelago.

- Monitoraggio dell’inquinamento marino di alcune zone costiere particolarmente interessate dall’inquinamento da oggetti galleggianti.

ATTIVITA' FORMATIVE:

Verrà affrontato il tema della biodiversità della flora e della fauna dell'Arcipelago Toscano. I partecipanti saranno coinvolti in percorsi formativi sulle caratteristiche del territorio tenuti dai volontari di Legambiente Arcipelago. 

La didattica sarà incentrata sulla vela e la vita di bordo,  prevedendo l’insegnamento delle basi pratico-teoriche della navigazione a vela e della conduzione di un’imbarcazione, attraverso la sperimentazione diretta delle nozioni acquisite

ALLOGGIO: 

Da poppa a prua sarà contenuto il tutto il mondo che ospiterà le avventure dei partecipanti. Le imbarcazioni da 12 a 15 metri sono dotate di spazi comuni, cucine spaziose, cabine e cuccette. 

REQUISITI RICHIESTI: 

Particolare spirito di adattamento in spazi ristretti e amore per il mare.

Per i soggetti disabili si prega di contattarci per verificare la compatibilità tra il tipo di disabilità e i limiti architettonici delle imbarcazioni, con l’obiettivo di rendere possibile il soggiorno.

Background:  This is a mountain area where more than 70% population lives in rural areas and agriculture is the main stay of their survival.  Off late, due to deforestation and land degradation, population pressure, unrestricted grazing by animals and indifferent attitude of people towards their environmental sanitation, the people feel the pinch of global warming and climate change.   Some recognize the changes and consequences but the majority fail to understand and correlate it to their life style.  Since they still stick to the traditions and follow the age old farming practices their income levels are going down.  

Changes in climatic conditions affect their farming and living conditions adversely.  The green cover in mountains maintains the environmental balance and controls the climate in the whole country.  The resources are sufficient but the people, due to lack of education and awareness, fail to conserve and preserve these resources.  

This project is designed to work on these issues and volunteers are required to work with RUCHI team and local people to address some of them.

Work: Volunteers will be involved in environmental education in the same area and work with youth workers and community leaders to initiate  actions aiming at environmental sanitation, improve climatic changes and restrict global warming.  Basically that will include education and awareness creation using various tools but any physical action leading to check Global warming, climate change, depletion of natural resources will be highly appreciated.  

Accommodation:  This will be basic, simple and shared with common toilets.   They will be staying in RUCHI complex accommodation with basic amenities.  We shall provide mattresses but the volunteers are required to bring their own bed sheets, sleeping bags and personal toiletries.

Food:   Food offered will be simple authentic Indian vegetarian and freshly cooked.  Three meals a day will be served.  Assistance while cooking is desired of volunteers.  Volunteers are free to cook meals of their country choice on every Sunday.

Project Needs:

Growing population and increasing demand for food has led to industrial farming practices, which are detrimental to both the environment and to our health.  Sustainable farming is the way forward as it takes into consideration of our health, the environment, local communities and animal welfare.  It produces food in a way that allows for ecological balance and maintenance of biodiversity. 


Plants, animals and humans are all part of nature and we rely on each other to survive.  Climate change, loss of biodiversity, soil degradation, depletion of resources and extinction of species are devastating results of our exploitation of nature.  Rethinking our role in nature and our footprint on this planet is key to the survival of future generations.   


Project Aims:

Provide a unique experiential learning opportunity to enrich knowledge of sustainable farming and animal care 

Increase awareness of the negative impact of industrial farming on our health and on the environment 

Encourage volunteers to engage with nature, physically, mentally and spiritually

Cultivate a sustainable and harmonious co-existence with plants, animals and all others members of our ‘earth community’ 

Spread the principles of environmental sustainability and raise active citizenship committed with a fairer society

Inspire future changemakers who are impactful towards sustainable farming and animal care issues (Changemakers are individuals who gain skills and resources they need to collaborate on solving complex social problems)

Source: http://www.changemakers.com/about/changemakers

DESCRIPTION: PARTNER DESCRIPTION: Volunteer Forest Firefighter Society was established in 2008 by the group of active people who were alarmed by the situation with fires at the Ladoga-Lake region. Local governmental services of natural area protection was not able to handle fire extinguishing at the numerous islands scattered on the lake surface. The project is aiming for prevention and extinguishing the fire, education of local community, pointing out the problem. Also recognition the value of this area and National Park status assignment for it, as long-term goal. The islands of the lake have unique vegetation. It is home for many rare species of animals, birds and plants; fragile ecosystem which takes several hundred years to recover from the fire. That’s why we consider that this place needs to be protected and saved for next generations. The people of our organization are engineers, biologists, teachers, architects, students etc. Now it has become a pretty big community that unites very different people with diverse backgrounds and quite wide geography. All participants are volunteers ready to spend their vacation or weekend for the purpose of environmental protection. Since 2008 we had increased our skills and capacities on field of prevention and fighting the fire. We educate and prepare our volunteers through different trainings and practical seminars right at the campsite. We’ve gained a lot of experience on how to make our project more sustainable and effective and will be glad to share it with new motivated volunteers. WORK DESCRIPTION: Normally there are 10-15 Russian volunteers in the camp but their number changes all the time. There are no any fixed groups: people come for as long as they can according to the needs of the camp. The leader of the camp is the person who is in charge for functioning the camp. It is not permanent position, and usually every two weeks he or she passes the duties to next leader. There is large variety of tasks: − Detecting and putting out fires; − Monitoring the land from motor boats. − Monitoring the land through binoculars from various islands. − Running the camp (housekeeping tasks, help with meal preparation) − Also we organise Islands Cleaning Events: group of our volunteers (rubbish tream) goes by boat to some popular island often visited by tourists and clean it up from rubbish, install info boards. Working hours: 3-8 hours/day, however it can vary depending on weather, current tasks and number of people. When it’s dry and hot we focus on patrolling and observation of the area. Each volunteer should be ready to move if the alarm appears. It is important to keep in mind that the main goal of this camp is to detect and extinguish forest fires - it is priority task and rest of work, day routines and discipline are built around it. ACCOMODATION AND FOOD: Since there are already 8 years the project exists, we’ve manage to organize our life in the camp in most convenient way. We have electricity from the generator: every tree or two days batteries, accumulators and other items may be charged. There is free wi-fi and even water tab made by our ingenious volunteers. We use organic hand-made wash up liquid or purchase eco-friendly one. We separate our rubbish and transport it to St.Petersburg for recycling. The laundry can be done in the lake or we have several basins and soap. There is sauna-tent with a stove and hot stones. We use wood to heat it up and make washing process comfortable and pleasant. The wood is taken from the nearest island, which was affected by the fire about 10 years ago and has plenty of dead dry trees. There are tents for 2-4 people in the camp. Please, bring your own mat and sleeping bag. If you have your own tent, please bring it with you. If not, we will manage to find the tent for you but be ready for neighbors. Food is cooked on bonfire and on gas stove. Many of our participants are vegetarians and all the dishes made without meat, but if you like you may add can-meat or fish to your plate. We use water from the lake for cooking. This year we’ve published Ladoga Cook Book, which is about how we make our menu more interesting and diverse within the limits of low budget and remoteness from supermarkets. But anyway you should be ready for porridge! There is no way to avoid it☺ And of course if you want bring some specialties from your country you’re warmly welcome! ATTENTION! Alcohol in the camp is strictly forbidden! LOCATION AND LEISURE: Ladoga is one of the biggest fresh water lake in Europe. It is situated in the Republic of Karelia in the north-west of Russia. Closest big city is Saint. Petersburg which locates about 2,5 hours by train South direction. The camp is based on the island Pieni-Hepposaari in 30-40 minutes from the mainland by boat. One of our coordinators will assist the new volunteers with arrival to the camp. Free time activities: The amount of free time strongly depends on weather. There may be three days raining, and that case volunteers have plenty of free time to sleep, read, chat, or play games. We like gather around bonfire for singing with guitar. For newcomers we organise different trainings and practical seminars: - Sailing a boat; - How to work with water pumps and different equipment; - Fire trainings; - Orienteering: how to use GPS, work with maps, define azimuth; - First aid; - Knots; - What to do if you or your fellow dropped overboard? It’s literally practical; - Radio: how to use walkie-talkie, number codes. This year in beginning of July we will be hosting Greenpeace firefighters training camp. It's an educational event annually happening in our camp. It is aimed for those who already involved in firefighting protection or want organise volunteer group in their regions, so the event gathers participants from different parts of Russia. The volunteers may joins Greenpeace sessions if the weather allows it. The nature is very specific Nordic type and it’s incredibly beautiful! Sometimes you may spend hours just watching the waves or observing birds. Also swimming is nice especially if you like cold water☺ In July it’s usually warm enough already for people, not only for seals who are our close neighbors. IMPORTANT: In the hot time there might be a lot of fires which means free time for sleep only. REQUIREMENTS: For those who have no camping experience, life at the island far away from civilization without some regular facilities may be too tough and stressful. Also the weather may be severe and unpredictable what should be taken into consideration. As the activities taken at the firefighter’s camp associates with danger, the insurance is obligatory! To sum everything up, for this project we seek for motivated volunteers with outdoor camping experience, ready for challenging and sometimes very demanding conditions. Also it’s better to have at least basic knowledge of Russian language or be ready to learn it right in the camp. Also we ask the applicants to send the letter of motivation. NOTES: AIRPORT: LED STATION: The nearest terminal is in Saint-Petersburg where we usually have the meeting point. From Saint-Petersburg 2 hours by train to Priozersk, then by bus or by taxi to the boat station where our boat will wait for volunteers in agreed time. 30-40 minutes takes the trip to the camp island by boat.

Non sarà una "Caporetto"

PAESE: ITALIA
CONTRIBUTO: 250
TARGET: Ragazzi
DATA INIZIO: 20 / 6 / 2016
DATA FINE: 29 / 6 / 2016

PROGETTO: Da oltre 16 anni Legambiente organizza in Friuli progetti in una delle aree meno note del nostro Bel Paese. Si tratta di un territorio di “confine” sotto molti punti di vista. Chi ha visitato questi luoghi ha potuto scoprire una realtà sorprendente, fatta di eccezionale biodiversità naturale, di paesaggi sempre diversi, di storia, tradizioni e cultura davvero unici. Coinvolti nel progetto sono amministrazioni comunali, associazioni ed enti che, attraverso il ripristino e la manutenzione di vecchi sentieri e altre attività, riusciranno a rendere più qualificati l’ambiente e la loro offerta turistica.

CIRCOLO: Il circolo Legambiente della Carnia è attivo dalla fine degli anni Ottanta. Il suo impegno principale è rivolto alla difesa del territorio e del paesaggio, che si è concretizzato, ad esempio, nelle battaglie contro la realizzazione di discariche in siti a rischio idrogeologico e contro assurdi progetti di autostrade ed elettrodotti che avrebbero un impatto devastante sull’ambiente. Tra le altre problematiche affrontate ci sono: la difesa dei corsi d’acqua, interessati da sconsiderati prelievi a scopo idroelettrico e la lotta contro la cementificazione del territorio, alla quale si contrappongono progetti di turismo sostenibile e rispettoso della tradizione e dei luoghi.

LUOGO: Le Valli del Natisone si trovano nel Friuli Orientale, nelle vicinanze di Cividale, la città fondata dai romani oggi patrimonio Unesco, a ridosso del confine con la Slovenia. Si tratta di un territorio di passaggio, ricco di storia, tradizioni e cultura (in molte località si parla lo sloveno ed il friulano), che si caratterizza d’estate con una vegetazione lussureggiante. Tribil Superiore si trova a 600 metri di altitudine, in una splendida posizione dominante, ed è circondato da foreste e radure frequentate anche dall’orso. In pochi chilometri si può raggiungere Caporetto, nell’attuale territorio sloveno, dove scorre l’Isonzo con le sue splendide acque e si trova un bel Museo dedicato al primo conflitto mondiale.

LAVORO: Il territorio montano del Friuli è caratterizzato dalla presenza di una fitta rete di sentieri e mulattiere, in gran parte ereditata dalla Prima Guerra Mondiale. Oggi, con lo spopolamento e l’abbandono delle attività tradizionali, molti di questi percorsi, in particolare quelli collocati a quote intermedie, sono stati abbandonati o hanno cambiato la loro funzione venendo utilizzati dagli escursionisti, dagli appassionati della montagna e della natura. I volontari saranno impegnati nella manutenzione e nel ripristino di alcuni di questi sentieri che rientrano nell’Alpe Adria Trail, un itinerario che collega Carinzia, Slovenia e Friuli. Verranno usati pratici tronca-rami per diradare la vegetazione che ha invaso i tracciati. Verrà effettuata anche la pulizia di alcune piccole discariche e ci sarà la possibilità di imparare ad utilizzare gli attrezzi tradizionalmente impiegati in passato per lo sfalcio dei prati, partecipando all’organizzazione di una festa tradizionale del paese.

ATTIVITA’ FORMATIVE: La località che ci ospita è al centro di un “crocevia” che comprende i rilievi montuosi su cui si sono svolte decisive vicende della Prima Guerra Mondiale, luoghi ricchi di testimonianze storiche ed artistiche, come Cividale ed il santuario di Castelmonte, ed una delle più importanti zone vitivinicole d’Europa. Uno degli obiettivi che il circolo di Legambiente si è posto è quello di far conoscere ai volontari il territorio, guidandoli nella lettura di alcune problematiche ambientali e sociali e mettendoli in contatto con la gente che vive in montagna. Oltre al lavoro nei boschi per recuperare e sistemare vecchi sentieri, ci sarà così spazio per scoprire le bellezze naturali della zona, per apprezzare le specialità gastronomiche e per riflettere sulle conseguenze che potrebbe avere sul paesaggio la realizzazione di impattanti infrastrutture.

ALLOGGIO: Presso le comode strutture dell’Albergo Diffuso di Tribil Superiore. Si tratta in particolare dell’edificio che ospitava un tempo le scuole e che oggi è stato ristrutturato per accogliere i turisti.

REQUISITI RICHIESTI: Data anche l'intenzione di effettuare alcune escursioni guidate in montagna è opportuno un certo allenamento e la capacità di percorrere con sicurezza questo tipo di percorsi.

DATA FINE: 3 / 7 / 2016

Diversamente Marinai propone un campo della durata di una settimana in barca a vela nell’Arcipelago Toscano. L’obiettivo è quello di promuovere la tutela del territorio marino e, contemporaneamente, sviluppare il senso della bellezza che la vita a bordo di un imbarcazione può trasmettere. Non ci può essere vera salvaguardia dell’ambiente senza la capacità di poter apprezzare il paesaggio naturale. Il campo di lavoro vuole realizzare interventi concreti per migliorare la qualità ambientale, mostrando all’equipaggio come vivere sul mare e con il mare sia un’esperienza unica e indimenticabile. La pulizia delle spiagge inaccessibili a piedi, il monitoraggio dei materiali inquinanti presenti nelle acque dell’Arcipelago sono integrate dall'avvistamento dei cetacei, dalla  pratica quotidiana della riduzione degli sprechi che la vita di bordo comporta, dalla possibilità di spostarsi utilizzando soltanto il vento. 

CIRCOLO: L’A.S.D. Diversamente Marinai è stata fondata nel 2011 ed ha come obiettivo principale quello di rendere accessibile il mondo della vela e della navigazione a tutti, integrando le marginalità sociali e le disabilità. Nel corso di questi anni ha promosso diverse iniziative, collaborando con la Regione Toscana ed il Progetto GiovaniSì con associazioni locali e nazionali. Le rotte percorse dalle nostre imbarcazioni hanno solcato l’Arcipelago Toscano portando nei porti equipaggi misti, progetti scolastici e percorsi di trekking ambientale.

LUOGO: L'Isola del Giglio, situata nell'arcipelago della Toscana di fronte al Monte Argentario, è davvero una perla tutta da scoprire. Giglio offre agli appassionati del mare bellissime spiagge e insenature. Le sue limpidissime acque sono un affascinante mondo subacqueo per gli amanti delle immersioni e il suo territorio (per il 90% ancora selvaggio) invita ad avventurarsi per i percorsi pedonali. Dinnanzi al promontorio di Monte Argentario, sorge la più meridionale delle isole dell'arcipelago toscano: l'isola di Giannutri con la sua forma inconfondibile di una mezzaluna. Dista 12 miglia marine dall' Isola del Giglio, il suo punto più elevato è Monte Mario 83 metri sul livello del mare; ha una superficie di 260 ettari e uno sviluppo costiero di 11 chilometri. La bassa macchia mediterranea regna ancora con i suoi colori e profumi. Meta di passo per una miriade di uccelli che raggiungono l'Europa per nidificare, è la terra d'elezione per il rondone pallido ed è colonizzata sulle coste dai numerosi gabbiani reali. La natura calcarea e l'eccezionale trasparenza dell'acqua, la straordinaria diversità biologica e la presenza di relitti, rendono unici questi fondali, richiamando ogni anno migliaia di subacquei. Certamente fu abitata già nella preistoria (come testimoniano i numerosi ritrovamenti di armi e utensili) e fu frequentata da Etruschi e Romani. Giacciono ancora sui fondali di questo tratto di mare alcuni relitti di navi mercantili, testimoni di antichi traffici marittimi.

Didattica della vela e la vita di bordo

L’attività prevede un corso di secondo livello di navigazione a vela e conduzione di un’imbarcazione, attraverso la sperimentazione diretta delle nozioni acquisite.

Pulizia delle spiagge accessibili solo dal mare

Il progetto prevede la pulizia delle spiagge inaccessibili via terra, attraverso la raccolta dei rifiuti di materiale inquinante. 

Avvistamento cetacei

Il monitoraggio di delfini e balene è da anni di interesse centrale per la salvaguardia delle specie mediterranee che vivono nelle acque dell’Arcipelago.

Monitoraggio dell’inquinamento del mare

I partecipanti saranno impegnati nel monitoraggio di alcune zone costiere particolarmente inquinate da oggetti galleggianti e riporteranno dati e riflessioni su appositi moduli convenzionati con Legambiente, fornendo dati che potranno essere utilizzati per scopi scientifici.


ATTIVITA’ FORMATIVE: 

Conoscenza della biodiversità della Zona umida di Mola (Porto Azzurro, LI) e della zona sotto tutela delle Dune di Lacona (Capoliveri, LI) tramite attività didattiche realizzate in collaborazione con il Circolo Legambiente dell'Arcipelago Toscano.

ALLOGGIO:  partecipanti saranno imbarcati su due cabinati a vela della lunghezza di 12-14 m, divisi in due gruppi da n. 8 o 6 persone.

DATA INIZIO: 1 / 7 / 2016
DATA FINE: 10 / 7 / 2016

PROGETTO: l’isola di Ustica è diventata Area Marina Protetta 30 anni fa; da allora è stato realizzato un importante percorso di conservazione della biodiversità e della tutela del mare. Negli ultimi anni l’amministrazione locale sta dedicando risorse allo sviluppo di un turismo sostenibile e responsabile, puntando quindi sull’uso rispettoso del mare e del territorio da una parte, e sulla valorizzazione del patrimonio culturale e delle piccole economie locali dall’altra. I campi di volontariato che Legambiente realizza quest’estate, in collaborazione con l’AMP e il comune, si inseriscono in questo contesto; gli obiettivi sono di sensibilizzare gli abitanti e i turisti a una fruizione corretta dell'ambiente marino e costiero, e di migliorare l’offerta di turismo sostenibile sull’isola, attraverso la sorveglianza dell’area protetta, il monitoraggio e la pulizia dai rifiuti e la creazione di nuovi percorsi di snorkeling. 

LUOGO: Ustica, la perla nera del Mediterraneo, è una piccola isola di origine vulcanica situata nel Tirreno meridionale, a nord di Palermo e a nord-ovest dalle isole Eolie. E’ considerata il regno dei subacquei, grazie alla sua fauna e flora sottomarina, ineguagliabile patrimonio ambientale salvaguardato dalla Riserva Naturale e Area Marina Protetta lungo tutto il periplo dell’isola. La sua ricchezza naturalistica è data anche dalle coltivazioni locali che ne fanno una terra di pregi gastronomici: lenticchie e ortaggi, vigneti e uliveti sono testimonianza di un uso agricolo del territorio che resiste all’incuria e all’abbandono.

LAVORO: I volontari garantiranno un presidio costante dell’AMP e svolgeranno le seguenti attività: pulizia delle coste dalla presenza di eventuali rifiuti spiaggiati, monitoraggio e catalogazione dei rifiuti raccolti negli specchi d'acqua, individuazione di percorsi snorkeling, presidio dei punti informativi dell'AMP.

ATTIVITA’ FORMATIVE: ai volontari verranno fornite tutte le informazioni necessarie sull’Area Marina Protetta e sulla Marine Strategy, la strategia internazionale per la riduzione dei rifiuti marini.

ALLOGGIO: appartamento privato. 

REQUISITI RICHIESTI: confidenza col mare e buona acquaticità.

Caretta Caretta sull'isola dei conigli

PAESE: ITALIA
CONTRIBUTO: 250
TARGET: Adulti
DATA INIZIO: 3 / 7 / 2016
DATA FINE: 12 / 7 / 2016

PROGETTO: I campi di volontariato si svolgono nella spiaggia dell’Isola dei Conigli, zona A di Riserva Naturale, in quanto sito di ovodeposizione della tartaruga marina Caretta caretta, specie protetta perché rara e minacciata di estinzione.

I campi hanno una duplice finalità:

- contribuire alla tutela della spiaggia, intensamente frequentata a fini balneari, in modo da garantire il mantenimento delle condizioni ambientali idonee all’ovodeposizione di Caretta caretta, controllando e limitando l’impatto antropico sul sito;

- sorvegliare e proteggere i nidi di Caretta caretta, dalla deposizione alla schiusa.

Questi campi sono una grande occasione per quanti, appassionati della natura, vogliono prendersene cura svolgendo attività utili e insieme entusiasmanti, in uno dei luoghi più belli di Lampedusa e del Mediterraneo, meritevole di essere salvaguardato per la sua bellezza e per la sua grande importanza naturalistica. Sono diverse centinaia i volontari che ogni anno hanno contribuito in modo attivo e determinante alla tutela della spiaggia dei Conigli che, fino alla data dell’istituzione della Riserva, versava in grave stato di degrado. I visibili risultati positivi raggiunti nel corso del tempo, sono stati possibili anche grazie all’insostituibile ruolo del volontariato ambientale.


CIRCOLO: Il Circolo Legambiente Esther Ada nasce a Lampedusa nel 2011 ed è principalmente coinvolto nell’organizzazione delle campagne nazionali di Legambiente e nella realizzazione di progetti relativi a problematiche di carattere ambientale e sociale. In collaborazione con la Riserva Naturale “Isola di Lampedusa” propone attività di educazione ambientale agli studenti delle scuole dell’isola e si occupa dell’organizzazione dei campi di volontariato per la tutela della Spiaggia dei Conigli, sito di deposizione della tartaruga marina Caretta caretta.

LUOGO: Molto più vicina all’Africa che alla Sicilia, Lampedusa appartiene all’Arcipelago delle Pelagie. Nel 1996 la Regione Siciliana ha istituito la Riserva Naturale Orientata “Isola di Lampedusa”, affidata in gestione a Legambiente Sicilia. L’area protetta si estende per circa 360 ettari lungo un’ampia fascia incontaminata della costa meridionale dell’isola ed è finalizzata alla conservazione delle espressioni più significative della fauna e della flora presenti sul territorio, comprendenti numerosi endemismi e specie note solo per Lampedusa. La spiaggia dei Conigli, uno dei luoghi più significativi e visitati della riserva, è stata per anni oggetto di ogni forma di abuso e degrado, ma grazie ai numerosi interventi di recupero ambientale, controllo e sensibilizzazione effettuati dall’Ente Gestore fin dall’istituzione della riserva, oggi rappresenta un modello di gestione e di promozione di un turismo sostenibile, che ha saputo coniugare la conservazione della natura con la fruizione del territorio.  

LAVORO: Il campo prevede lo svolgimento di turni giornalieri di 6 ore e turni notturni di 8–10 ore.

I turni giornalieri sono finalizzati al controllo della balneazione, mediante sorveglianza ed attività di informazione e sensibilizzazione dei bagnanti, in modo da far rispettare i regolamenti vigenti nella riserva. Dalle 8 alle 20.00 i volontari si alterneranno per coprire due postazioni fisse: una all’ingresso della Riserva e una sulla spiaggia. All’ingresso, i volontari forniranno informazioni e materiali divulgativi ai visitatori e faranno in modo che attrezzi ed oggetti dei quali è vietato l’ingresso o l’uso nella Riserva, vengano depositati prima di accedere in Riserva.

In spiaggia, i volontari sorveglieranno i nidi deposti, saranno punto di riferimento per quanti vogliono conoscere la biologia riproduttiva di Caretta caretta e svolgeranno attività di sensibilizzazione per orientare la fruizione della spiaggia verso forme compatibili con l’importanza del sito (distribuiranno posacenere per evitare l'abbandono di mozziconi sulla spiaggia, inviteranno al rispetto delle norme comportamentali da osservare, contribuiranno alla tutela dello specchio acqueo antistante la spiaggia mediante una canoa, ecc.).

I volontari, inoltre, collaboreranno nelle attività di rilevamento dei dati sulla fruizione e saranno di sostegno agli operatori addetti al monitoraggio per il rilevamento dei dati sui nidi di tartaruga e sui piccoli. I turni notturni si svolgeranno presso la struttura ubicata all’ingresso della riserva e sono finalizzati ad impedire l’accesso in spiaggia di eventuali visitatori durante la notte, che potrebbero pregiudicare gli eventi di nidificazione della tartaruga.

ATTIVITA’ FORMATIVE: All’inizio di ogni campo i volontari parteciperanno ad un incontro formativo presso la sede della Riserva (tenuto dal personale della Riserva), durante il quale verranno fornite le principali informazioni sull’area protetta (storia, caratteristiche, regolamento, ecc.)  e sulla biologia della tartaruga marina.

ALLOGGIO: I volontari saranno ospitati in una casa poco distante dal centro del paese, con cucina attrezzata, due bagni e camere dotate di letti a castello.  

REQUISITI RICHIESTI: Buona attitudine a camminare; capacità di svolgere le attività anche in presenza di particolari condizioni climatiche (essere in grado di trascorrere diverse ore sotto il sole, ma anche in presenza di vento, umidità, pioggia, zanzare…). Non costituisce un requisito obbligatorio, ma per chi ne ha le capacità, è richiesto l’utilizzo di una canoa e saper montare una tenda da campo. Il campo non è adatto a persone con disabilità (fisiche o psichiche)

Partner and Project Description: Over the last three years, this project has been organized in Partnership with communities living under the sloops of Mount Kilimanjaro, Northern Tanzania. These communities/Villages are sharing boarder with the forest and there is big dependency among the community members in the conserved forest.  Majority of the population are farmers growing coffee, bananas, vegetable and variety of fruits. There is a small part of the population involved in business/ Petty traders and micro finance. Most families still maintain traditional style of cooking their meals on the ground in the house over an open flame. As a traditional house usually has only one room, the whole house is filled with the smoke before and after meals. The smoke is thick and stays in the house as only a little hole in the roof allows for ventilation. As a result, acute respiratory and eye diseases are a significant problem for women and children. Additionally, this form of cooking requires large amount of firewood, which puts pressure on the Mount Kilimanjaro forest and thus a major contributor of forest destruction leading to climate change. 

Project Activities: Based on the four components of the program (Orientation, Community services, cultural exchange, Development/global education) will participate involved in building and installing energy server stoves to the selected households. The stoves are designed in a very simple technology and will be installed in few homes as a demonstration for the community to adapt. Establishment of community tree nursery and tree planting will be as well part of the project activities.

Study Part: Intergeneration gatherings in a form of sports Bonanzas, workshops, debates and study tours will be organized under the theme of the project to provide an opportunity for both Program participants and host community members to promote environmental sustainability.

Accommodation and Food: Participants are expected to be hosted in local host families within the community. However depending on the availability of the families, in some cases Participants will be sharing accommodation in community residential house. Clean water and electricity will be available.

DESCRIPTION: PARTNER DESCRIPTION: The history of Open Houses dates back to the mid-1980s, when a group of young people began to restore actual disused village churches. The focus lies on restoration and public use of historical monuments, which allows a long-lasting and effective recovery of the buildings. Currently Open Houses has several historic buildings in its care. All of them are attractive ensembles which display centuries of history. But most of them stood vacant for a very long time and suffered serious structural damage. WORK DESCRIPTION: Nearby the youth accommodation houses which are part of Lohra Castle complex there is a campsite which can be used by groups of youngsters, too. An abandoned former agricultural building will be rebuilt into a sanitary house for campers. Therefore it is necessary to construct a water line to this building. An excavator will dig the line and the volunteers will accompany this work by collecting stones and bringing in an insulating layer of sand. Later they will under the guidance of a craftsman lay the water pipes and put afterwards the material which had been digged out back into the ditch. The remaining material will be used to fill holes and to level the ground at other parts of the castle. Furthermore the participants will take care of the outdoor area. ACCOMODATION AND FOOD: shared rooms with 2 - 5 beds in 3 guest houses, warm shower (limited hot water), 1 camp kitchen (cold water), coal-burning stoves LOCATION AND LEISURE: Lohra Castle is situated in the heart of Germany in Northern Thuringia. The castle, which is surrounded by a scenic hilly landscape, is located on the edge of a nature reserve area. Being one of the largest castles in Thuringia, the history of Lohra Castle begins in the Middle Age. The castle is more than 1000 years old. Today, it includes 20 buildings from different times: medieval fortifications, remnants of a tower from the 11th century, a roman chapel, a manor from the Renaissance period as well as stables and granaries from the 19th century. The ensemble is situated in the centre of a beautiful forest. For years Lohra Castle was vacant. In the 1990s Open Houses started to restore the castle and to revive it by cultural activities. Since that time, a large number of Workcamps, Building Weeks, art-workshops, exhibitions, concerts and international meetings took place in the castle.

PAESE: UGANDA
CONTRIBUTO: 120 Euro
TARGET: Adulti
DATA INIZIO: 5 / 7 / 2016
DATA FINE: 24 / 7 / 2016

Project location:

The project will take place at UPA Arua Branch, Ezoova Village, Driwala Parish Pajulu Sub-county 3 Km from Arua Town. 

The administrative and commercial headquarter of the district is 520 Kms from  Kampala.

Project Background:

Women in Uganda constitute majority of farmers and unpaid workers as they are responsible for most of the care economy.

Less than 12% of economically active women are in paid employment as compared to 25% of economically active men. The rest are either self-employed or contribute to unpaid family labour.

Male participation rate in wage sectors is more than 3 times that of women. Even in paid employment, women are more likely than men to be in low-status, poorly paid jobs.

About 50% of employed women work in the lowest paying three sectors, namely agriculture, household and mining and quarrying as compared to 33% of men working in those sectors.

 In Uganda as in many African countries, gender discrimination means that women must submit to an overall low social status than men. For many women this reduces their power to act independently, become educated, avoid poverty, and or escape reliance upon abusive men. Many girls and young women become forced into sex or are forced into trade sex for economic survival. It is common for girls to come sexually active at a much younger age than men, causing the rise of HIV / AIDS to become even more prolonged.  Older men are breaking the long established norms and choosing younger and younger girls to be their sexual partners. In doing so in fact these men are infecting them with HIV.  In some districts, HIV prevalence rate among 13-19 year Old girls is at least 10 times higher in male of the same age. This work camp therefore is intended to prevent gender inequality in the Peri—urban setting of Pajulu. This project is in line with Uganda Vision 2040 which has a part which aims at addressing gender issues and building women capacity.

Project objective:

To equip 200 stakeholders with skills in forum theater

Project Needs:

Fuzhou city has a long history of rich cultural heritage and resources that had profound impact on the Chinese history and modern celebrated culture. It has been named the “Hometown of Scholar and Talent” and the “City of Culture”. Many folk arts from years of heritage and techniques, such as bamboo knitting, hand-made mounting pictures (手工裱画), paper cutting art, songs, etc., had been passed down through many generations can be discovered in this city. However, in today’s modern society where many products are mass-produced by machines, the art of practicing traditional craftsmanship faces the brink of extinction. Finding passionate new generation of young people who are committed to its practice and its teaching to the next generation is a challenge, and these once loved folk arts are losing in popularity compared to the modern taste. Educating the public of their value and importance, in addition to teaching of why and how to appreciate these forms of art are all important in preserving the cultural heritage of the city and the country. 


Project Aims:

Promote the preservation of traditional Chinese art and craftsmanship

Enhance international exchange and folk art and culture

Inspire future changemakers who are impactful towards arts and cultural heritage preservation (Changemakers are individuals who gain skills and resources they need to collaborate on solving complex social problems)

Background/Project:  Nepal is a beautiful mountainous country. More than 80 % of the population live in rural areas with over 35% of the population living below the poverty line. Access to proper health and sanitation facilities is often very limited and awareness of correct hygiene practices is low. Only 46% of the population has access to toilets, leaving 54% to practice open-air defecation. 

Due to lack of awareness, the community site has to deal with environmental problems such as water pollution, air pollution, noise pollution, solid waste management, open deification etc. Recognising these concerns, VIN organises camps to address these environmental and educational issues.  It focuses on Workcamps/ short-term projects which include environmental protection, tree planting, working along with local partners and community people to spread health and hygiene awareness among the community people. The work will vary largely in the camps and will include some simple physical work.

 The implementation of the Total Sanitation Project is expected to generate a significant improvement in the health and sanitation conditions of the community and protect the environment as a reduction in the occurrence of sickness within the community and an improved quality of life.

Our aim through this project is to construct toilets, create awareness among the people and to give them more instruments to feel confident and feel free to decide for their future, and for the future of a new generation. VIN cooperates with several local partners in assisting various government schools by creating awareness about the environment; health and hygiene; working with local schools in teaching basic English through creative learning methods; simple renovation activities like painting, cleaning or  constructing toilets, tree planting etc.

Project : 

This year Concordia renews the partnership with the municipality of Villeréal, picturesque village at the heart of Lot and Garonne. This medieval town is a cultural and touristic center. We organize an international work camp in order to contribute at its upkeep and maintenance, as well as to meet its population and to participate to its cultural events.

Work : 

You’ll participate to create two murals in the village old school. Supervised by a Concordia Camp Leader and armed with paintbrushes and paints, you’ll give the communal buildings a new life by creating one mural in the refectory and the second one in a classroom. 

For the first mural we imagine an interactive wall space based around the wall of a museum/gallery allowing children to present their drawings within frames that are painted. The imagined gallery space such as cabinet of curiosities ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cabinet_of_curiosities) would have included inside: illustrations of well known sculptures, books and curious objects. With the idea demonstrating curious objects exhibited on the wall, real shelves could also be fitted allowing children to bring to school their own curious objects, a sort of show and tell format. This format would allow children to exhibit their own drawings in a way that was encouraging, having their picture selected for one of the "special places" on the wall. The second mural will focus on the growing of food or an interactive world map in which cut-outs of fruits and vegetables from around the world are placed to show their origin. You might do some masonry as well if time remaining. 

Accommodation and meals: 

You will be camping on the rugby field. Tents for 2 will be provided. Please bring your floor mat and your sleeping bag. There will also be a collective house for cooking and diverse activities ! At the beginning you will share the place with street comedians who will perform until July 10th. You will share collective tasks and prepare meals as a group. You will also have to manage a budget provided by the group facilitators and participate in grocery shopping, favoring healthy and local foods.

Location and activities: 

Founded during the XIII century, Villeréal hosts 1300 inhabitants. You’ll have the opportunity to dive into its rich history as much as in its beautiful natural environment. At the beginning of the work camp, you’ll participate to the final phase of the Art festival of Villeréal that gather dozens of artists organizing performances, art installations and concerts.

Special remarks: 

Bring old clothes that you can paint with. Bring a warm sleeping bag and mat, work clothes, gloves and shoes, warm and rain clothes, a flashlight, a swimsuit, sun glasses and sun cream. Foreigners belonging to the European Union must bring with them a personal EHIC (European Health Insurance Card), and everybody must, in any case, bring their insurance certificate. If health issues happen on the project, volunteers will have to pay for it, and then be reimbursed once back in their home country.

Diversamente Marinai propone un campo della durata di una settimana in barca a vela nell’Arcipelago Toscano. L’obiettivo è quello di promuovere la tutela del territorio marino e, contemporaneamente, sviluppare il senso della bellezza che la vita a bordo di un imbarcazione può trasmettere. Non ci può essere vera salvaguardia dell’ambiente senza la capacità di poter apprezzare il paesaggio naturale. Il campo di lavoro vuole realizzare interventi concreti per migliorare la qualità ambientale, mostrando all’equipaggio come vivere sul mare e con il mare sia un’esperienza unica e indimenticabile. La pulizia delle spiagge inaccessibili a piedi, il monitoraggio dei materiali inquinanti presenti nelle acque dell’Arcipelago sono integrate dall'avvistamento dei cetacei, dalla  pratica quotidiana della riduzione degli sprechi che la vita di bordo comporta, dalla possibilità di spostarsi utilizzando soltanto il vento. 

CIRCOLO: L’A.S.D. Diversamente Marinai è stata fondata nel 2011 ed ha come obiettivo principale quello di rendere accessibile il mondo della vela e della navigazione a tutti, integrando le marginalità sociali e le disabilità. Nel corso di questi anni ha promosso diverse iniziative, collaborando con la Regione Toscana ed il Progetto GiovaniSì con associazioni locali e nazionali. Le rotte percorse dalle nostre imbarcazioni hanno solcato l’Arcipelago Toscano portando nei porti equipaggi misti, progetti scolastici e percorsi di trekking ambientale.

LUOGO: L'Isola del Giglio, situata nell'arcipelago della Toscana di fronte al Monte Argentario, è davvero una perla tutta da scoprire. Giglio offre agli appassionati del mare bellissime spiagge e insenature. Le sue limpidissime acque sono un affascinante mondo subacqueo per gli amanti delle immersioni e il suo territorio (per il 90% ancora selvaggio) invita ad avventurarsi per i percorsi pedonali. Dinnanzi al promontorio di Monte Argentario, sorge la più meridionale delle isole dell'arcipelago toscano: l'isola di Giannutri con la sua forma inconfondibile di una mezzaluna. Dista 12 miglia marine dall' Isola del Giglio, il suo punto più elevato è Monte Mario 83 metri sul livello del mare; ha una superficie di 260 ettari e uno sviluppo costiero di 11 chilometri. La bassa macchia mediterranea regna ancora con i suoi colori e profumi. Meta di passo per una miriade di uccelli che raggiungono l'Europa per nidificare, è la terra d'elezione per il rondone pallido ed è colonizzata sulle coste dai numerosi gabbiani reali. La natura calcarea e l'eccezionale trasparenza dell'acqua, la straordinaria diversità biologica e la presenza di relitti, rendono unici questi fondali, richiamando ogni anno migliaia di subacquei. Certamente fu abitata già nella preistoria (come testimoniano i numerosi ritrovamenti di armi e utensili) e fu frequentata da Etruschi e Romani. Giacciono ancora sui fondali di questo tratto di mare alcuni relitti di navi mercantili, testimoni di antichi traffici marittimi.

Didattica della vela e la vita di bordo

L’attività prevede un corso di secondo livello di navigazione a vela e conduzione di un’imbarcazione, attraverso la sperimentazione diretta delle nozioni acquisite.

Pulizia delle spiagge accessibili solo dal mare

Il progetto prevede la pulizia delle spiagge inaccessibili via terra, attraverso la raccolta dei rifiuti di materiale inquinante. 

Avvistamento cetacei

Il monitoraggio di delfini e balene è da anni di interesse centrale per la salvaguardia delle specie mediterranee che vivono nelle acque dell’Arcipelago.

Monitoraggio dell’inquinamento del mare

I partecipanti saranno impegnati nel monitoraggio di alcune zone costiere particolarmente inquinate da oggetti galleggianti e riporteranno dati e riflessioni su appositi moduli convenzionati con Legambiente, fornendo dati che potranno essere utilizzati per scopi scientifici.


ATTIVITA’ FORMATIVE: 

Conoscenza della biodiversità della Zona umida di Mola (Porto Azzurro, LI) e della zona sotto tutela delle Dune di Lacona (Capoliveri, LI) tramite attività didattiche realizzate in collaborazione con il Circolo Legambiente dell'Arcipelago Toscano.

ALLOGGIO:  partecipanti saranno imbarcati su due cabinati a vela della lunghezza di 12-14 m, divisi in due gruppi da n. 8 o 6 persone.

PAESE: ITALIA
CONTRIBUTO: 500
TARGET: Ragazzi
DATA INIZIO: 11 / 7 / 2016
DATA FINE: 20 / 7 / 2016

PROGETTO: durante il campo i volontari acquisiranno conoscenze relative ai sistemi ambientali,  alla biologia marina, al mondo subacqueo e alla storia del territorio. I corsi di immersione subacquea e biologia marina completeranno un percorso di sensibilizzazione verso i problemi ambientali e di ecosostenibilità; irripetibili immersioni presso secche e relitti, escursioni nella città antica e le visite presso siti archeologici immersi nella natura, lontani dal turismo di massa, consentono di apprezzare l’altra protagonista delle nostre attività, l’archeologia. 

CIRCOLO: il Circolo Chico Mendes di Siracusa si è costituito nel 1995 e nel 1998 è diventato Onlus. Dalla sua costituzione ha promosso la partecipazione dei cittadini alla difesa e alla definizione della qualità della vita nel proprio territorio. Ha realizzato numerose iniziative di denuncia di fenomeni d’illegalità contro l’ambiente come l’abusivismo edilizio e l’irregolare gestione del ciclo delle acque e dei rifiuti; grazie a questo attivismo Legambiente Siracusa è diventata un punto di riferimento per i cittadini nelle lotte ambientali e un interlocutore serio per le istituzioni locali.

LUOGO: Siracusa è un’antica città della Magna Grecia fondata nell’VIII sec. a.C. le cui gloriose vestigia testimoniano il suo passato di potente megalopoli. Si possono infatti ammirare fra i tanti monumenti: il teatro greco, il tempio di Apollo, l’ara di Ierone e il castello Eurialo. Il centro storico è situato sull’isoletta di Ortigia in cui strette viuzze e palazzi di stile barocco fanno da scenario a caratteristici locali frequentati da molti giovani e turisti. A sud dell’isola di Ortigia vi è l’Area Marina Protetta del Plemmirio, le cui alte falesie cadono su un mare profondo e attraversato da correnti, che rendono l’acqua limpida e ricca di pesce.

L'Area marina protetta Plemmirio si trova sulla costa orientale di Siracusa ed è stata istituita nel 2004. È classificata come Area Specialmente Protetta di Interesse Mediterraneo. Una delle peculiarità delle regole dell AMP è quella di limitare le attività di pesca e prelievo con delle regolamentazioni specifiche, ma anche quella di promuovere ed effettuare dei programmi di studio, ricerca e ripopolamento abbinati a dei programmi didattici ed educativi che permettano la maggiore conoscenza e sensibilità nei confronti della natura.


 

LAVORO: pulizia di alcuni tratti di costa e di fondale anche all’interno dell’AMP del Plemmirio. Sensibilizzazione dei turisti e dei locali alle tematiche ambientalistiche.

I volontari hanno l’opportunità di avvicinarsi a pratiche di ecologia domestica quali la raccolta differenziata, il risparmio idrico ed energetico, l’alimentazione basata su prodotti locali e di stagione. La vita di gruppo è un aspetto fondamentale, essa favorisce lo scambio culturale e la scoperta del territorio.

ATTIVITA’ FORMATIVE: 

Immersioni guidate per brevettati. 

Corso di Sommozzatore 1° Grado AR e 2° Grado AR, con rilascio di brevetto internazionale. 

Corso di Apnea 1° Grado e 2° grado. 

Seawatching e snorkeling (per chi non interessato alle immersioni con autorespiratore). 

Escursioni in barca.

Le tre camere da letto sono da sei persone ciascuna, con letti a castello. La villa è ubicata presso la zona balneare di Ognina a 15 km a sud di Siracusa.

REQUISITI RICHIESTI: Per iscriversi è necessario possedere e inviare la copia del certificato di idoneità sportiva non agonistica.

Location: Chail is a little sleepy town located an hours drive from State capital “Shimla”. The transformation of this little village community began in late 18th century when Maharaja Bhupinder Singh of Patiala decided to create a new summer capital which would be better than “Shimla”: all this for bruised ego.

Nestling in shelter of virgin forest and untrodden hills, Maharaja Bhupinder Singh developed the highest cricket field in the world in Chail. Well kept and maintained, more than the excitement of game, the pitch offers picturesque view of the surrounding, with tall forest all around it. The proud ruler made sure that Chail had everything that Shimla doesn’t.

Work: The volunteers will get exposure to local history and culture. Working closely with local community volunteers will be involved in activities related to eco tourism, national park maintenance, floriculture etc. In addition volunteers will also work on facelift of local school, create learning opportunities for children and teach children. 

Accommodation: Volunteers will live in guest house/ home stay with simple conditions and share accommodation with other volunteers. All meals will be cooked and served in guest house. A cook will be there but volunteers are expected to help him and occasionally cook their own meals. Self-management is required.  Sleeping bags are also necessary for volunteers looking or interested in trekking.

Leisure time:  Self organized city tours and excursions. A variety of treks are available in close proximity. A visit to Shimla will offer an opportunity to see high Himalayan Mountains. Chail Palace and world’s highest cricket stadium can also be visited.

DATA FINE: 20 / 7 / 2016

PROGETTO: l’isola di Ustica è diventata Area Marina Protetta 30 anni fa; da allora è stato realizzato un importante percorso di conservazione della biodiversità e della tutela del mare. Negli ultimi anni l’amministrazione locale sta dedicando risorse allo sviluppo di un turismo sostenibile e responsabile, puntando quindi sull’uso rispettoso del mare e del territorio da una parte, e sulla valorizzazione del patrimonio culturale e delle piccole economie locali dall’altra. I campi di volontariato che Legambiente realizza quest’estate, in collaborazione con l’AMP e il comune, si inseriscono in questo contesto; gli obiettivi sono di sensibilizzare gli abitanti e i turisti a una fruizione corretta dell'ambiente marino e costiero, e di migliorare l’offerta di turismo sostenibile sull’isola, attraverso la sorveglianza dell’area protetta, il monitoraggio e la pulizia dai rifiuti e la creazione di nuovi percorsi di snorkeling. 

LUOGO: Ustica, la perla nera del Mediterraneo, è una piccola isola di origine vulcanica situata nel Tirreno meridionale, a nord di Palermo e a nord-ovest dalle isole Eolie. E’ considerata il regno dei subacquei, grazie alla sua fauna e flora sottomarina, ineguagliabile patrimonio ambientale salvaguardato dalla Riserva Naturale e Area Marina Protetta lungo tutto il periplo dell’isola. La sua ricchezza naturalistica è data anche dalle coltivazioni locali che ne fanno una terra di pregi gastronomici: lenticchie e ortaggi, vigneti e uliveti sono testimonianza di un uso agricolo del territorio che resiste all’incuria e all’abbandono.

LAVORO: I volontari garantiranno un presidio costante dell’AMP e svolgeranno le seguenti attività: pulizia delle coste dalla presenza di eventuali rifiuti spiaggiati, monitoraggio e catalogazione dei rifiuti raccolti negli specchi d'acqua, individuazione di percorsi snorkeling, presidio dei punti informativi dell'AMP.

ATTIVITA’ FORMATIVE: ai volontari verranno fornite tutte le informazioni necessarie sull’Area Marina Protetta e sulla Marine Strategy, la strategia internazionale per la riduzione dei rifiuti marini.

ALLOGGIO: appartamento privato.

Caretta Caretta sull'isola dei conigli

PAESE: ITALIA
CONTRIBUTO: 250
TARGET: Adulti
DATA INIZIO: 12 / 7 / 2016
DATA FINE: 21 / 7 / 2016

PROGETTO: I campi di volontariato si svolgono nella spiaggia dell’Isola dei Conigli, zona A di Riserva Naturale, in quanto sito di ovodeposizione della tartaruga marina Caretta caretta, specie protetta perché rara e minacciata di estinzione.

I campi hanno una duplice finalità:

- contribuire alla tutela della spiaggia, intensamente frequentata a fini balneari, in modo da garantire il mantenimento delle condizioni ambientali idonee all’ovodeposizione di Caretta caretta, controllando e limitando l’impatto antropico sul sito;

- sorvegliare e proteggere i nidi di Caretta caretta, dalla deposizione alla schiusa.

Questi campi sono una grande occasione per quanti, appassionati della natura, vogliono prendersene cura svolgendo attività utili e insieme entusiasmanti, in uno dei luoghi più belli di Lampedusa e del Mediterraneo, meritevole di essere salvaguardato per la sua bellezza e per la sua grande importanza naturalistica. Sono diverse centinaia i volontari che ogni anno hanno contribuito in modo attivo e determinante alla tutela della spiaggia dei Conigli che, fino alla data dell’istituzione della Riserva, versava in grave stato di degrado. I visibili risultati positivi raggiunti nel corso del tempo, sono stati possibili anche grazie all’insostituibile ruolo del volontariato ambientale.


CIRCOLO: Il Circolo Legambiente Esther Ada nasce a Lampedusa nel 2011 ed è principalmente coinvolto nell’organizzazione delle campagne nazionali di Legambiente e nella realizzazione di progetti relativi a problematiche di carattere ambientale e sociale. In collaborazione con la Riserva Naturale “Isola di Lampedusa” propone attività di educazione ambientale agli studenti delle scuole dell’isola e si occupa dell’organizzazione dei campi di volontariato per la tutela della Spiaggia dei Conigli, sito di deposizione della tartaruga marina Caretta caretta.

LUOGO: Molto più vicina all’Africa che alla Sicilia, Lampedusa appartiene all’Arcipelago delle Pelagie. Nel 1996 la Regione Siciliana ha istituito la Riserva Naturale Orientata “Isola di Lampedusa”, affidata in gestione a Legambiente Sicilia. L’area protetta si estende per circa 360 ettari lungo un’ampia fascia incontaminata della costa meridionale dell’isola ed è finalizzata alla conservazione delle espressioni più significative della fauna e della flora presenti sul territorio, comprendenti numerosi endemismi e specie note solo per Lampedusa. La spiaggia dei Conigli, uno dei luoghi più significativi e visitati della riserva, è stata per anni oggetto di ogni forma di abuso e degrado, ma grazie ai numerosi interventi di recupero ambientale, controllo e sensibilizzazione effettuati dall’Ente Gestore fin dall’istituzione della riserva, oggi rappresenta un modello di gestione e di promozione di un turismo sostenibile, che ha saputo coniugare la conservazione della natura con la fruizione del territorio.  

LAVORO: Il campo prevede lo svolgimento di turni giornalieri di 6 ore e turni notturni di 8–10 ore.

I turni giornalieri sono finalizzati al controllo della balneazione, mediante sorveglianza ed attività di informazione e sensibilizzazione dei bagnanti, in modo da far rispettare i regolamenti vigenti nella riserva. Dalle 8 alle 20.00 i volontari si alterneranno per coprire due postazioni fisse: una all’ingresso della Riserva e una sulla spiaggia. All’ingresso, i volontari forniranno informazioni e materiali divulgativi ai visitatori e faranno in modo che attrezzi ed oggetti dei quali è vietato l’ingresso o l’uso nella Riserva, vengano depositati prima di accedere in Riserva.

In spiaggia, i volontari sorveglieranno i nidi deposti, saranno punto di riferimento per quanti vogliono conoscere la biologia riproduttiva di Caretta caretta e svolgeranno attività di sensibilizzazione per orientare la fruizione della spiaggia verso forme compatibili con l’importanza del sito (distribuiranno posacenere per evitare l'abbandono di mozziconi sulla spiaggia, inviteranno al rispetto delle norme comportamentali da osservare, contribuiranno alla tutela dello specchio acqueo antistante la spiaggia mediante una canoa, ecc.).

I volontari, inoltre, collaboreranno nelle attività di rilevamento dei dati sulla fruizione e saranno di sostegno agli operatori addetti al monitoraggio per il rilevamento dei dati sui nidi di tartaruga e sui piccoli. I turni notturni si svolgeranno presso la struttura ubicata all’ingresso della riserva e sono finalizzati ad impedire l’accesso in spiaggia di eventuali visitatori durante la notte, che potrebbero pregiudicare gli eventi di nidificazione della tartaruga.

ATTIVITA’ FORMATIVE: All’inizio di ogni campo i volontari parteciperanno ad un incontro formativo presso la sede della Riserva (tenuto dal personale della Riserva), durante il quale verranno fornite le principali informazioni sull’area protetta (storia, caratteristiche, regolamento, ecc.)  e sulla biologia della tartaruga marina.

ALLOGGIO: I volontari saranno ospitati in una casa poco distante dal centro del paese, con cucina attrezzata, due bagni e camere dotate di letti a castello.  

REQUISITI RICHIESTI: Buona attitudine a camminare; capacità di svolgere le attività anche in presenza di particolari condizioni climatiche (essere in grado di trascorrere diverse ore sotto il sole, ma anche in presenza di vento, umidità, pioggia, zanzare…). Non costituisce un requisito obbligatorio, ma per chi ne ha le capacità, è richiesto l’utilizzo di una canoa e saper montare una tenda da campo. Il campo non è adatto a persone con disabilità (fisiche o psichiche)

Probably you are asking yourself what exactly Agroecology stands for?We can say it is a Science, not an ideology , for the development of agriculture in harmony with the ecosistems and the social and culture heritage.It is a kind of mixture of agrology, environment and antropology but we must state that to develope it the cientific method is the only tool used, and it is the consecuence of reasearches and investigations done by professors at universities.The opposite to Huerto de la Cora is Monsantos policy with Modified Genetic Seeds. These seeds represent the inadecuate way to develope agriculture not taking into consideration the environment, culture and food sovereignty Basicly Huerto de la Cora tries to recover the local seeds for vegetables, which represent an inmense World heritage created during centuries and centuries of the Human kind, investigates the plants produced and distributes the seeds in a free open way among people interested in self gardening and food sovereign. They use the method of the arabic gardens in the islamic Spain of the century VII to XIV when theis culture managed to introduce so many vegetables in Europe coming from Asia (all sorts of garlic, onions, leaks, paprika, lettuce, carrot etc. Just think that the only original vegetable of Europe is cabbage. The rest is imported ). This arabic garden is called Garden of La Cora or Huerto de la Cora.Huerto de la Cora has manged to find more than 500 species from different veggies from Spain. Next step was to gather seeds coming from the rest of the World, basicly from America where we got also a big ammount of new products (potatoes, corn-mais, tomatoes, advogados, etc). So the second phase of this project is to create a new Garden or Huerto del Mundo or Graden of the World, which was actually sarted in 2013 by some vols. from De Amicitia, CBF and VJF in a Youth Exchange called Pilla la Semilla y Acribilla.Huerto de la Cora is conected to the Universite Pablo Olavide of Sevillla.http://www.esenciatv.es/video.php?id=245 WORK DESCRIPTION: The volunteers will help to construct the different parts of huerto del Mundo,.

Maremma, estate a regola di Parco

PAESE: ITALIA
CONTRIBUTO: 200
TARGET: Adulti
DATA INIZIO: 15 / 7 / 2016
DATA FINE: 25 / 7 / 2016

PROGETTO: Il Parco Regionale della Maremma vanta ecosistemi di grande pregio, tra questi figurano le spiagge e le dune che conservano habitat e biodiversità pressoché rari per qualità di conservazione lungo il litorale toscano. Nel corso degli anni si sono però riscontrate varie criticità lungo il litorale a nord del Parco adiacente alla spiaggia pubblica di Principina a Mare, nel Comune di Grosseto, dovute alla scorretta fruizione della spiaggia, dove è consentito l’accesso libero. In questa parte di litorale, ubicata a nord della foce dell’Ombrone, risulta infatti difficile compiere una efficace attività di vigilanza, per condizioni legate alle caratteristiche di viabilità che lo rendono distante dalla sede del Parco. Qui l’accesso libero facilita comportamenti contrari alle regole vigenti in un parco naturale e in alcuni casi anche alle spiagge pubbliche, che possono mettere a rischio la stessa conservazione degli ecosistemi litorali e dunali. 

Lo scopo del progetto è dunque quello di aumentare la tutela e la conservazione di queste aree protette, attraverso un maggior controllo e la sensibilizzazione dei visitatori, in particolare durante il periodo di maggior afflusso turistico. 

ORGANIZZATORE: L’Ente Parco Regionale della Maremma è stato istituito nel 1975 e comprende un territorio di circa 9.000 ettari che si estende da Talamone a Principina a Mare, nei comuni di Orbetello, Magliano in Toscana e Grosseto. 

LUOGO: L’area del parco è caratterizzata da una catena di colline, i Monti dell’Uccellina, che discendono verso il mare e che circondano campi coltivati e pascoli dove si allevano vacche e cavalli allo stato brado. Dal punto di vista naturalistico il complesso formato dai Monti dell'Uccellina, dalla pineta di Marina di Alberese, dalla Foce del fiume Ombrone e dalle Paludi della Trappola costituisce un prezioso mosaico di ecosistemi sui quali ha agito in momenti e modi diversi l'uomo, caratterizzando ulteriormente il paesaggio senza tuttavia degradarlo e impoverirlo. Lungo il litorale di circa 25 Km si alternano spiagge sabbiose e alte scogliere, che hanno alle spalle paludi, pinete e oliveti. Il luogo dove si svolgerà il campo si trova a Principina a Mare (spiaggia delle Capanne), a nord della foce del fiume Ombrone.

LAVORO: I volontari saranno impiegati a turni di 6 ore nella spiaggia di Principina a Mare all’interno dell’area parco, dove sarà realizzato  un presidio del Parco e un punto informativo. Le funzioni in cui saranno impiegati i volontari saranno le seguenti:

- fornire informazioni relative all’area protetta, sistemi e opportunità di visita; 

- fornire informazioni sui comportamenti corretti e consono a un’area parco;

- controllo ed eventuale segnalazione al personale di vigilanza di comportamenti vietati e rischiosi per la conservazione degli ecosistemi;

- interventi di pulizia della spiaggia;

- monitoraggio per la presenza di eventuali nidificazioni (tartarughe marine, avifauna protetta, ecc);

- sensibilizzazione dei fruitori della spiaggia sulla raccolta dei rifiuti

ATTIVITA’ FORMATIVE: Il personale del Parco fornirà tutte le informazioni relative all’area protetta e ai comportamenti permessi ai visitatori. Durante il soggiorno i volontari potranno inoltre seguire le attività di censimento della fauna selvatica condotte dal biologo del parco.

ALLOGGIO: I volontari soggiorneranno in una foresteria interna al Parco della Maremma, detta il Pinottolaio, che si trova all’interno della pineta lungo la strada che conduce a Marina di Alberese. Saranno messi a disposizione tre alloggi muniti di camera, bagno e cucina.

DESCRIPTION: PARTNER DESCRIPTION: Helping Estonian Nature Fund to preserve habitat for endangered amphibians of Estonia ProjectThe full name of this camp organised in cooperation with the Estonian Fund of Nature (ELF) is: Habitat fine-tuning for endangered amphibians of Estonia, and it will be run on two sites:Matsalu National Park i it s the most well-known Estonian national park in the world. Matsalu National Park is one of Europe s most important stopover sites waterfowl on their flight from the Arctic to Western Europe. It is a true paradise for bird watchers. National Park comprises the shallow Matsalu Bay, nearly 50 islands and islets and the Vainameri Sea that surrounds them. The coastal meadows by Matsalu Bay (covering approximately 3000 ha), which are among the largest in Europe, are an important feeding place for migratory birds and a nesting site for some rare species. Otepaa area i a small town nestled in southern Estonian hills and valleys, Otepaa is well-known winter holiday destination for all those who love the snow. During summer you can hike along the paths of Otepaa Nature Park, admire rolling hills and lakes, winding village road and small rivers. The nearby Puhajarve is one of the largest lakes in Estonia and is perfectly suited for a quiet weekend camping trip in the wild. Otepaa hills create a very diverse landscape with small size fields, hey-meadows, forests and wetlands - a perfect habitat of many cultural landscape species that have been lost in intensive farming areas. ELF s conservation work camps project, which is carried out from 1998, has two main goals. One is to carry out conservation work in nature parks and protected areas and second is to bring people closer to nature, to promote environment-friendly and sustainable lifestyle. International conservation work camps are important part of ELF s conservation holidays project. In international work camps ELF always involves local people to work alongside participants from other countries. The benefits is understanding, education and shared cultures can be great and the experience remembered by all. Also this kind of conservation works help to raise awareness of local people about values of local nature and importance of centuries old traditional land management. WORK DESCRIPTION: Amphibians are one of the most threatened group of species globally, as 1/2of all known frogs, toads and newts face extinction. Estonia has lost one toad and several other species are declining in a pace not natural. This project aims on fine-tuning of natterjack toad and crested newt in two different locations.In Matsalu National Park the work will take place on a costal meadow of Saastna. Practically it consists of the cutting and collection of brushwood, mainly junipers around small pool where natterjacks spawn. Natter jacks are typical for opened landscape and pools they spond in need to be exposed to sun.In Otepaa region we will work on several ponds around the town to clean them from overgrowing vegetation. This involves going in to the pools and manually pulling out water-plants in order to improve crested newts habitat.Typical working hours per day 6 hours per day (for example: 9-12 and 13-16) ACCOMODATION AND FOOD: Simple shared accommodation in Otepaa and simple single-big-room accommodation in Matsalu.

Diversamente Marinai propone un campo della durata di una settimana in barca a vela nell’Arcipelago Toscano. L’obiettivo è quello di promuovere la tutela del territorio marino e, contemporaneamente, sviluppare il senso della bellezza che la vita a bordo di un imbarcazione può trasmettere. Non ci può essere vera salvaguardia dell’ambiente senza la capacità di poter apprezzare il paesaggio naturale. Il campo di lavoro vuole realizzare interventi concreti per migliorare la qualità ambientale, mostrando all’equipaggio come vivere sul mare e con il mare sia un’esperienza unica e indimenticabile. La pulizia delle spiagge inaccessibili a piedi, il monitoraggio dei materiali inquinanti presenti nelle acque dell’Arcipelago sono integrate dall'avvistamento dei cetacei, dalla  pratica quotidiana della riduzione degli sprechi che la vita di bordo comporta, dalla possibilità di spostarsi utilizzando soltanto il vento. 

CIRCOLO: L’A.S.D. Diversamente Marinai è stata fondata nel 2011 ed ha come obiettivo principale quello di rendere accessibile il mondo della vela e della navigazione a tutti, integrando le marginalità sociali e le disabilità. Nel corso di questi anni ha promosso diverse iniziative, collaborando con la Regione Toscana ed il Progetto GiovaniSì con associazioni locali e nazionali. Le rotte percorse dalle nostre imbarcazioni hanno solcato l’Arcipelago Toscano portando nei porti equipaggi misti, progetti scolastici e percorsi di trekking ambientale.

LUOGO: L'Isola del Giglio, situata nell'arcipelago della Toscana di fronte al Monte Argentario, è davvero una perla tutta da scoprire. Giglio offre agli appassionati del mare bellissime spiagge e insenature. Le sue limpidissime acque sono un affascinante mondo subacqueo per gli amanti delle immersioni e il suo territorio (per il 90% ancora selvaggio) invita ad avventurarsi per i percorsi pedonali. Dinnanzi al promontorio di Monte Argentario, sorge la più meridionale delle isole dell'arcipelago toscano: l'isola di Giannutri con la sua forma inconfondibile di una mezzaluna. Dista 12 miglia marine dall' Isola del Giglio, il suo punto più elevato è Monte Mario 83 metri sul livello del mare; ha una superficie di 260 ettari e uno sviluppo costiero di 11 chilometri. La bassa macchia mediterranea regna ancora con i suoi colori e profumi. Meta di passo per una miriade di uccelli che raggiungono l'Europa per nidificare, è la terra d'elezione per il rondone pallido ed è colonizzata sulle coste dai numerosi gabbiani reali. La natura calcarea e l'eccezionale trasparenza dell'acqua, la straordinaria diversità biologica e la presenza di relitti, rendono unici questi fondali, richiamando ogni anno migliaia di subacquei. Certamente fu abitata già nella preistoria (come testimoniano i numerosi ritrovamenti di armi e utensili) e fu frequentata da Etruschi e Romani. Giacciono ancora sui fondali di questo tratto di mare alcuni relitti di navi mercantili, testimoni di antichi traffici marittimi.

Didattica della vela e la vita di bordo

L’attività prevede un corso di secondo livello di navigazione a vela e conduzione di un’imbarcazione, attraverso la sperimentazione diretta delle nozioni acquisite.

Pulizia delle spiagge accessibili solo dal mare

Il progetto prevede la pulizia delle spiagge inaccessibili via terra, attraverso la raccolta dei rifiuti di materiale inquinante. 

Avvistamento cetacei

Il monitoraggio di delfini e balene è da anni di interesse centrale per la salvaguardia delle specie mediterranee che vivono nelle acque dell’Arcipelago.

Monitoraggio dell’inquinamento del mare

I partecipanti saranno impegnati nel monitoraggio di alcune zone costiere particolarmente inquinate da oggetti galleggianti e riporteranno dati e riflessioni su appositi moduli convenzionati con Legambiente, fornendo dati che potranno essere utilizzati per scopi scientifici.


ATTIVITA’ FORMATIVE: 

Conoscenza della biodiversità della Zona umida di Mola (Porto Azzurro, LI) e della zona sotto tutela delle Dune di Lacona (Capoliveri, LI) tramite attività didattiche realizzate in collaborazione con il Circolo Legambiente dell'Arcipelago Toscano.

Project summary: In the heart of Madonie Regional Park in Sicily, the volunteers will renovate the ancient “pagliare” for the promotion of a responsible and sustainable tourism.

Description

Project: the workcamp is part of a wider project which aims at raising the natural and touristic value of the Madonie Regional Park, through the creation of educational and environmental facilities and activities. The seasonal tourism linked to the winter sports will lead to the reduction and fragmentation of the natural areas with serious environmental damages. The purpose of the project is to divert this direction towards the safeguard of the territory and the valorization of the cultural and historic heritage as key to stimulate innovative quality and new economic trends, in respect of the mountain biodiversity.

Legambiente local group: the local group “Francesco Lojacono” sar born in 2007 in Palermo with the aim of safeguarding and promoting areas with natural and cultural value through awareness campaigns such as “Salvalarte” (save the art) and Solidarity and Environment, for the fruition of natural areas by disadvantaged people.

Work: the volunteers will renovate and rebuild the ancient “pagliare”, straw buildings used in Sicily as snow storage. They will also do fire monitoring in the Park and some renovation work in the Refuge and the surrounding area.

Study part: biodiversity of the Madonie Park, sustainable tourism and ancient traditions of Sicily, Mediterranean genesis and geology, climate change.

Accommodation and food: The volunteers will be hosted in Rifugio Il Grifone, a mountain refugee inside the Park, at 1500 meters above sea level. 

Location and leisure: the Regional Park of Madonie, extended for 794 kmq in the north-centre of Sicily, includes the highest and most ancient mountains in the region.

The municipality was formed in 1998 with the union of the former municipalities of Eskifjorour, Neskaupstaour and Reyoarfjorour. Austurbyggo, Faskruosfjaroarhreppur and Mjoafjaroarhreppur, merged into Fjaroabyggo in 2006.The project will take place in the Holmanes nature reserve, part of Holmhals peninsula, designated as a protected area in 1973, it is a country park to the north and a nature reserve to the south. The flourishing bird life and unusual rock formations make the area popular for outdoor recreation. The main duties will be connected to reconstruction tasks in the surroundings of Holmanes. SEEDS volunteers will for example mark hiking trails on the north area of Holmahals, from existing viewing points and resting places to a path leading into the reserve to old ancient ruins. Additional tasks may be connected to removing and stopping the spread of lupine from and around the protected areas. The lupine plant (originally from Alaska) is/was used to control soil erosion and re-vegetate eroded areas. In some parts of Iceland, lupine has spread to a greater extent than desired, endangering native plant species; so it must be removed from certain areas.The project can be physically demanding and might require a good physical condition. Weather conditions in Iceland are unpredictable, so be prepared to experience all kinds of weather and be sure to bring warm clothing since most of the activities will take place outdoors. ACCOMODATION AND FOOD: SEEDS volunteers will be hosted in a house in the municipality of Fjaroarbyggo. Volunteers will sleep on mattresses on the floor. Please bring your own sleeping bag. The house is equipped with a kitchen. Volunteers will share the duties of preparing food, cooking meals and cleaning. Volunteers will have access to showers in the local swimming pool.Do not forget some traditional/typical food from your home country for the international evening. LOCATION AND LEISURE: The project takes place in the municipality of Fjaroabyggo, East of Iceland in a beautiful area surrounded by mountains, fjords and the sea. The East Fjords are, geologically speaking, one of the oldest parts of Iceland, around 13,5 million years old.Fjaroabyggo is comprised of six fjords, Mjoifjorour, Eskifjorour, Reyoarfjorour, Norofjorour, Faskruosfjorour and Stoovafjorour. The name of the municipality, which is the most easterly one in Iceland, has a strong fjord connection, meaning the people/or the settlement of the fjords. Of the municipality s six villages the most populous one, is Neskaupstaour, with about 1,400 residents.Magnificent mountains and picturesque fjords are just part of what Fjaroabyggo has to offer. The attractions are a combination of landscape, history and easy going attitude towards life. Fjaroabyggo has two officially protected areas; one was the first to be protected in Iceland. This park extends to the base of Mt. Nipa sea promontory and has been protected since 1972. Holmanes, the other park, is located on the peninsula between Eskifjorour and Reyoarfjorour.

Anche nell'ambiente protetto del parco, tuttavia, sono a volte necessari interventi che facilitano le specie più delicate, che rischiano di soccombere per cause umane, come ad esempio la crescita di altre specie alloctone invasive, la mancanza di microclimi /o di microambienti di cui necessitano. Poichè tutti gli spostamenti del campo si effettuano in bicicletta, è previsto anche un breve corso di manutenzione di base della bicicletta.

CIRCOLO: Il Circolo Legambiente Pisa da ormai 20 anni è protagonista di molte attività in città: dall'educazione ambientale per bambini e adulti, alle battaglie per le aree verdi, passando per la protezione civile, l'informazione su temi di interesse generale (rifiuti, acqua, verde, mobilità ecc.), le campagne, le escursioni nel territorio, e molto altro. Il tutto in costante e proficua relazione con le molte associazioni ed attività che animano Pisa.  

LUOGO: La tenuta di San Rossore, inserita nel Parco regionale MSRM, dopo essere stata destinata a tenuta di caccia per regnanti e presidenti, è dal 1989 i nucleo centrale di un grande parco costiero che costituisce un vero gioiello sia per la fauna (in particolare l'avifauna che vi trova un'oasi di tranquillità -sia essa stanziale o di passo), sia per le specie vegetali, tra cui diversi relitti e specie endemiche, che qui hanno trovato un ambiente in cui sopravvivere e svilupparsi. La tenuta si trova a distanza ciclabile dalle città di Pisa, e Lucca, due centri che non hanno bisogno di descrizione; dal campo è anche facile raggiungere altri centri di interesse, quali Livorno, Calci (con la Certosa ed il museo di Storia Naturale), il Lago di Massaciuccoli, e le Alpi Apuane, che, se fa molto caldo, potranno essere meta per un'escursione del fine settimana centrale.

LAVORO: I volontari utilizzeranno semplici strumenti quali cesoie, accetta e segaccio per eliminare la vegetazione invasiva, registreranno i dati per confrontare la situazione presente e verificare l’efficacia dell’azione. Saranno possibili, su richiesta del Parco, interventi per facili operazioni di manutenzione di aree di interesse naturalistico più interne. Lo studio di impatto prevede l'osservazione di due aree (una sottoposta all'evento e una di controllo), e la registrazione delle specie presenti (identità, quantità e dimensioni)Tutti gli spostamenti avverranno con biciclette, di cui i volontari effettueranno anche la manutenzione, con l'aiuto della locale ciclofficina. 

ATTIVITA’ FORMATIVE: Manutenzione e piccole riparazioni delle biciclette (a cura della ciclofficina); visite guidate nel parco (a cura dei dipendenti del Parco);  visita guidata nella città di Pisa e zone limitrofe (a cura del Circolo)

ALLOGGIO: appartamento in cascina nella Tenuta di San Rossore

REQUISITI RICHIESTI: Saper andare in bicicletta (si percorrono circa 10-20 km al giorno), e voler imparare a effettuarne la manutenzione.

PROGETTO: Legambiente Lecco ha in gestione l’ostello nel Parco Regionale del Monte Barro, una realtà intorno alla quale il circolo sviluppa numerose attività, tra cui Festambiente Monte Barro. Essa si sviluppa su 4 giorni ed occupa i nostri volontari in una attenta e laboriosa preparazione che copre ogni aspetto della festa. Talvolta però un aiuto in più è ben gradito soprattutto quando i visitatori si contano a centinaia se non migliaia.

CIRCOLO: Legambiente Lecco (https://www.facebook.com/legambiente.lecco) è una realtà radicata sul territorio della provincia, collabora con numerose amministrazioni locali in progetti di grande rilevanza. Tra tutte le attività svolte dal circolo sicuramente la gestione dell’Ostello Parco Monte Barro ha il peso maggiore, dando anche lavoro ai giovani del territorio, in un’ottica di economia civile e approccio ecocompatibile al fare impresa. Non sono da dimenticare poi i campi internazionali di volontariato, le collaborazioni con i parchi regionali e tante altri ambiti che rendono il circolo vivo e vissuto da numerosi volontari lecchesi.

LUOGO: Il Parco Regionale del Monte Barro è una piccola area protetta lombarda che si affaccia sul Lago di Como e la città di Lecco. L’Eremo del Monte Barro è una struttura situata a 700 metri di quota ed ha una ricca storia alle sue spalle. Il Monte Barro è abitato sin dai primi anni del medioevo, la struttura dell’Eremo fu prima un monastero francescano, poi un hotel e quindi un sanatorio. Legambiente Lecco ha collaborato nel recupero di quello che un tempo era un edificio considerato ecomostro per farlo diventare un esempio di sostenibilità con l’apertura dell’Ostello Parco Monte Barro.

LAVORO: I volontari dovranno collaborare nella realizzazione di Festambiente Monte Barro, la manifestazione ha bisogno di molte persone per funzionare efficacemente e i soli volontari locali spesso non bastano. I compiti sono numerosi e comprendono sia il prima che il durante Festambiente: allestimento del palco per gli artisti, controllo della fruibilità dei sentieri intorno all’ Eremo, accoglienza dei visitatori, approntamento dei cartelli per segnalare le varie attività, pulizia dei luoghi, vigilanza sulla corretta fruizione delle aree verdi, banchetto informativo, partecipazione ad attività di animazione.. 

ALLOGGIO: I volontari saranno alloggiati nell’Ostello Parco Monte Barro gestito dal circolo Legambiente Lecco. Vi sarà una camerata a loro riservata con cucina e bagni al piano.

REQUISITI RICHIESTI: Entusiasmo, condivisione dei valori di Legambiente, predisposizione al lavoro di gruppo e alla condivisione degli spazi.

DESCRIPTION: PARTNER DESCRIPTION: The history of Open Houses dates back to the mid-1980s, when a group of young people began to restore actual disused village churches. The focus lies on restoration and public use of historical monuments, which allows a long-lasting and effective recovery of the buildings. Currently Open Houses has several historic buildings in its care. All of them are attractive ensembles which display centuries of history. But most of them stood vacant for a very long time and suffered serious structural damage. WORK DESCRIPTION: Masonry at historic walls The participants will restore the historical walls of the remains of a medieval tower which was part of the former defensive system of Ollendorf Water Castle. The volunteers will document the parts of the walls which are damaged and take them away stone by stone. Afterwards they will start to reconstruct the walls. The historical stone bridge crossing the castle moat has to be restored in the future. Therefore a replacement bridge has to be built.

The “via regia” was the most important medieval trading route which ran from Flanders via Frankfurt and Leipzig to Russia. In 1692 the castle had been destroyed by a fire and only the foundations could resist. Today´s manor house was built in 1694 in a simple rural baroque style, replacing the former castle. Following the decline of the “via regia” in the 19th century, the site was later used for agricultural purposes, and store houses and barns were built. During the last decades, due to long vacancy, the manor fell into disrepair. Since several years Open Houses is active at the Water Castle and could safe it from falling apart. Many works has been done since than, both focusing on the restoration of the historical complex and the renaturation of the castle’s surroundings. Due to the young people from different countries, who have lived there and have taken part in its restoration during the last years, the castle changed into a place of creativity and open-mindedness.

The « 7th continent » is the name given to a huge amount of waste which covers an area of 3,5 million km² in the Pacific Ocean. Through our daily consuming practices, especially the use of packaging, we are involved in this worldwide natural disaster. Even if the region of Lozere is one of the most protected and preserved area in France, and is part of a national park, the inhabitants of this region are also concerned by this problem and should think about a sustainable solution to the management of rubbishes and wasted packagings.

This project of youth exchange is integrated into the continuity of the reflection committed within the Passadou association : what do we set up so that every citizen of the world becomes aware of current environmental stakes? It seems within the competence of the association to educate and to raise awarness the youth towards a sustainable development, and to give them the ways to their level, to act in knowledge and in conscienceness.

The topic about the waste management is for Passadou a priority point to tackle, because, besides provoking in the oceans, the death of million birds, fishes and marine mammals every year, the plastic waste affect human populations today. On one hand, waste at sea increases the difficulties for fishing, and on the other hand, the human being at the end of the chain food, ingest fragments of plastics which can have ill effect on the health.

Workshops : The activities break down into three phases :

A phase of discovery, exchanges and reflection about the theme

The second phase of meeting and creation of a communication medium

A last phase focused on the sharing of knowledges and the valuation of the project

For these three weeks, you will meet inhabitants, elected representatives and local actors, with whom you will set up various workshops. As well, visits will take place in a waste reception center and an office of sortings and waste recycling. 

With a professional in communication, you will think about the realization of a communications tool to raise awarness on the waste problem.

The youth exchange will end in a festival organized by the association Passadou and an other local association, where you will present the work realized during these 3 weeks.

Leisure activities : You can take advantage of your leisure time to discover natural resources and local traditions of the Mount Lozère and in sources of the Tarn, swim in river, make some hike, participate in festivities...

WORK/PROJECT: SEEDS volunteers will have, for the fifth year in a row, the opportunity to assist with a local fair in the West Fjords of Iceland. Our host is the municipality of Reykhólahreppur, in which the village of Reykhólar is the largest settlement with about 115 inhabitants.

The volunteers will help with various tasks in preparation for the fair, during the fair itself and after it ends. The festival aims to promote the local history and culture, so this project is very good for volunteers interested in these aspects in a remote area of the country. Tasks will include beautifying the area in and around the town, helping with the village festivities by preparing for evening shows and entertainment during the festival, beautifying the area before the fair as well as cleaning up after the festival.

ACCOMMODATION: SEEDS volunteers will stay in a local school sharing rooms. Volunteers will have access to toilets and shower facilities. Please bring your own sleeping bag.

Volunteers will receive food and be in charge of the cooking, cleaning activities and will divide the tasks among themselves. The food will partly be from the surrounding area giving volunteers a chance to try the local fare and experience with local ingredients. 

Please do not forget some traditional/typical food from your home for the international evening.

LOCATION: Volunteers will stay in the south part of the West fjords of Iceland, in the municipality of Reykhólahreppur, which is located about 230 kilometres from Reykjavík. 

The area boasts of beautiful landscape which catches the eye of everyone who travels through. It is a great place to stop and enjoy nature, go for hikes and for bird watching. The village gives a unique and beautiful view of the Breiðafjörður Bay. Geothermal heat can be found in the area, one of the few areas in the West fjords which have geothermal heat, and in the olden days it was used to grow corn. The only Algae factory in Iceland is located in Reykhólahreppurand has been running since 1975. The factory has organic certification. 

Economically, the town is quite different from many other of the Westfjord communities. It is not a fishing village, due in large to the shallow waters of the eastern end of Breiðafjörður. Historically, however, it has made its way over the years through the harvest of natural resources. In the past this has included the harvesting of seals and birds, the history of which is documented in the Gifts of Nature Museum located adjacent to the tourist information centre.

This is quite a historic place which is mentioned in many Viking Sagas especially the one of Grettir the strong or Grettissaga. The local swimming pool is named after him and is called Grettislaug.    

The distance is around 230 Km from Reykjavík, 240 Km from Ísafjörður and 350 Km from Akureyri.

LANGUAGE: English will be the language in the camp; high proficiency is not required.

TERMINAL: Closest international Airport: Keflavík/Reykjavík (KEF). Bus, Central Bus Station (BSÍ).

SEEDS organises the “minibus option”, a shared transport from Reykjavík to the camp and vice-versa, which apart from being cheaper and more convenient, allows volunteers to meet and have a relaxed trip, while stopping on the way for interesting and tourist sites.

EXTRAS / SPECIAL REMARKS: Participation fee EUR 160 (Euros). To be paid to SEEDS on arrival in Euros or Icelandic Krónur.

Free time activities will be organized for SEEDS volunteers by our hosting partner. 

SEEDS volunteers will get the chance to participate in the town fair, access to the swimming pool and other leisure activities during their stay.

DATA FINE: 31 / 7 / 2016

PROGETTO: Marina di Camerota da anni ha intrapreso un percorso di valorizzazione del proprio patrimonio storico, naturalistico e ambientale, attraverso scelte spesso coraggiose, che si sono rivelate utili ed efficaci.  Accanto alla promozione di un turismo sostenibile, legato alla bellezza dei luoghi, alle tradizioni locali, alla cultura eno-gastronomica (fortemente indirizzata verso la riscoperta della dieta mediterranea), è stato fatto un importante lavoro sulla raccolta differenziata, sulla gestione delle acque reflue e sulla promozione culturale. Questo forte impegno è stato premiato nel 2015 con le 5 Vele, il massimo riconoscimento che Legambiente e Touring Club Italiano assegnano alle eccellenze balneari italiane (nel 2015 erano 15 le località premiate). 

LAVORO: I volontari saranno impegnati in una serie di attività finalizzate alla tutela e salvaguardia del territorio di Camerota, e iniziative di informazione e sensibilizzazione indirizzate a turisti e cittadini verso una corretta fruizione dell’ambiente. In particolare, con l'ausilio di un banchetto informativo presente in prossimità della Spiaggia del Cefalo e della retrostante Pineta di Sant'Iconio, i volontari forniranno informazioni dettagliate circa la rilevanza ambientale dell'area e i comportamenti indispensabili per salvaguardare l'ambiente costiero. Nella stessa pineta i volontari installeranno pannelli esplicativi e realizzeranno percorsi per passeggiate. Inoltre saranno impegnati in attività di supporto nella realizzazione di eventi culturali organizzati dall'amministrazione di Camerota.

LUOGO: Famosa per la produzione artigianale di anfore e di corde della pesca, questo piccolo centro situato nel basso Cilento, si trova al limite del Golfo di Policastro. Camerota è meta di turisti diretti soprattutto sulla costa nota per gli approdi, dove si trova Marina di Camerota con splendide spiagge affiancate da torri e grotte sommerse ed emerse e la stazione balneare con il porto. Tra le grotte più famose che caratterizzano questa località, c’è la grotta della Cala, dove sono stati rivenuti resti umani preistorici, e la grotta sepolcrale dove invece venivano sepolti i defunti. Per chi è appassionato di speleologia, a Marina di Camerota si trova l’Ecomuseo Virtuale Paleolitico che permette di esplorare, grazie alle moderne tecnologie, il territorio costiero durante il periodo della preistoria. Finalmente, quest’anno, è stata tolta l’enorme gru per l’alaggio delle barche che campeggiava sul porticciolo rovinando lo skyline del borgo marinaro.

ALLOGGIO: il gruppo di volontari sarà ospitato in una scuola elementare, fornita di brandine e materassi.

REQUISITI RICHIESTI: attitudine alle relazioni e a parlare con le persone.

PAESE: ITALIA
CONTRIBUTO: 500

DATA INIZIO: 21 / 7 / 2016
DATA FINE: 30 / 7 / 2016

PROGETTO: durante il campo i volontari acquisiranno conoscenze relative ai sistemi ambientali,  alla biologia marina, al mondo subacqueo e alla storia del territorio. I corsi di immersione subacquea e biologia marina completeranno un percorso di sensibilizzazione verso i problemi ambientali e di ecosostenibilità; irripetibili immersioni presso secche e relitti, escursioni nella città antica e le visite presso siti archeologici immersi nella natura, lontani dal turismo di massa, consentono di apprezzare l’altra protagonista delle nostre attività, l’archeologia. 

CIRCOLO: il Circolo Chico Mendes di Siracusa si è costituito nel 1995 e nel 1998 è diventato Onlus. Dalla sua costituzione ha promosso la partecipazione dei cittadini alla difesa e alla definizione della qualità della vita nel proprio territorio. Ha realizzato numerose iniziative di denuncia di fenomeni d’illegalità contro l’ambiente come l’abusivismo edilizio e l’irregolare gestione del ciclo delle acque e dei rifiuti; grazie a questo attivismo Legambiente Siracusa è diventata un punto di riferimento per i cittadini nelle lotte ambientali e un interlocutore serio per le istituzioni locali.

LUOGO: Siracusa è un’antica città della Magna Grecia fondata nell’VIII sec. a.C. le cui gloriose vestigia testimoniano il suo passato di potente megalopoli. Si possono infatti ammirare fra i tanti monumenti: il teatro greco, il tempio di Apollo, l’ara di Ierone e il castello Eurialo. Il centro storico è situato sull’isoletta di Ortigia in cui strette viuzze e palazzi di stile barocco fanno da scenario a caratteristici locali frequentati da molti giovani e turisti. A sud dell’isola di Ortigia vi è l’Area Marina Protetta del Plemmirio, le cui alte falesie cadono su un mare profondo e attraversato da correnti, che rendono l’acqua limpida e ricca di pesce.

L'Area marina protetta Plemmirio si trova sulla costa orientale di Siracusa ed è stata istituita nel 2004. È classificata come Area Specialmente Protetta di Interesse Mediterraneo. Una delle peculiarità delle regole dell AMP è quella di limitare le attività di pesca e prelievo con delle regolamentazioni specifiche, ma anche quella di promuovere ed effettuare dei programmi di studio, ricerca e ripopolamento abbinati a dei programmi didattici ed educativi che permettano la maggiore conoscenza e sensibilità nei confronti della natura.


 

LAVORO: pulizia di alcuni tratti di costa e di fondale anche all’interno dell’AMP del Plemmirio. Sensibilizzazione dei turisti e dei locali alle tematiche ambientalistiche.

I volontari hanno l’opportunità di avvicinarsi a pratiche di ecologia domestica quali la raccolta differenziata, il risparmio idrico ed energetico, l’alimentazione basata su prodotti locali e di stagione. La vita di gruppo è un aspetto fondamentale, essa favorisce lo scambio culturale e la scoperta del territorio.

Caretta Caretta sull'isola dei conigli

PAESE: ITALIA
CONTRIBUTO: 250
TARGET: Adulti
DATA INIZIO: 21 / 7 / 2016
DATA FINE: 30 / 7 / 2016

PROGETTO: I campi di volontariato si svolgono nella spiaggia dell’Isola dei Conigli, zona A di Riserva Naturale, in quanto sito di ovodeposizione della tartaruga marina Caretta caretta, specie protetta perché rara e minacciata di estinzione.

I campi hanno una duplice finalità:

- contribuire alla tutela della spiaggia, intensamente frequentata a fini balneari, in modo da garantire il mantenimento delle condizioni ambientali idonee all’ovodeposizione di Caretta caretta, controllando e limitando l’impatto antropico sul sito;

- sorvegliare e proteggere i nidi di Caretta caretta, dalla deposizione alla schiusa.

Questi campi sono una grande occasione per quanti, appassionati della natura, vogliono prendersene cura svolgendo attività utili e insieme entusiasmanti, in uno dei luoghi più belli di Lampedusa e del Mediterraneo, meritevole di essere salvaguardato per la sua bellezza e per la sua grande importanza naturalistica. Sono diverse centinaia i volontari che ogni anno hanno contribuito in modo attivo e determinante alla tutela della spiaggia dei Conigli che, fino alla data dell’istituzione della Riserva, versava in grave stato di degrado. I visibili risultati positivi raggiunti nel corso del tempo, sono stati possibili anche grazie all’insostituibile ruolo del volontariato ambientale.


CIRCOLO: Il Circolo Legambiente Esther Ada nasce a Lampedusa nel 2011 ed è principalmente coinvolto nell’organizzazione delle campagne nazionali di Legambiente e nella realizzazione di progetti relativi a problematiche di carattere ambientale e sociale. In collaborazione con la Riserva Naturale “Isola di Lampedusa” propone attività di educazione ambientale agli studenti delle scuole dell’isola e si occupa dell’organizzazione dei campi di volontariato per la tutela della Spiaggia dei Conigli, sito di deposizione della tartaruga marina Caretta caretta.

LUOGO: Molto più vicina all’Africa che alla Sicilia, Lampedusa appartiene all’Arcipelago delle Pelagie. Nel 1996 la Regione Siciliana ha istituito la Riserva Naturale Orientata “Isola di Lampedusa”, affidata in gestione a Legambiente Sicilia. L’area protetta si estende per circa 360 ettari lungo un’ampia fascia incontaminata della costa meridionale dell’isola ed è finalizzata alla conservazione delle espressioni più significative della fauna e della flora presenti sul territorio, comprendenti numerosi endemismi e specie note solo per Lampedusa. La spiaggia dei Conigli, uno dei luoghi più significativi e visitati della riserva, è stata per anni oggetto di ogni forma di abuso e degrado, ma grazie ai numerosi interventi di recupero ambientale, controllo e sensibilizzazione effettuati dall’Ente Gestore fin dall’istituzione della riserva, oggi rappresenta un modello di gestione e di promozione di un turismo sostenibile, che ha saputo coniugare la conservazione della natura con la fruizione del territorio.  

LAVORO: Il campo prevede lo svolgimento di turni giornalieri di 6 ore e turni notturni di 8–10 ore.

I turni giornalieri sono finalizzati al controllo della balneazione, mediante sorveglianza ed attività di informazione e sensibilizzazione dei bagnanti, in modo da far rispettare i regolamenti vigenti nella riserva. Dalle 8 alle 20.00 i volontari si alterneranno per coprire due postazioni fisse: una all’ingresso della Riserva e una sulla spiaggia. All’ingresso, i volontari forniranno informazioni e materiali divulgativi ai visitatori e faranno in modo che attrezzi ed oggetti dei quali è vietato l’ingresso o l’uso nella Riserva, vengano depositati prima di accedere in Riserva.

In spiaggia, i volontari sorveglieranno i nidi deposti, saranno punto di riferimento per quanti vogliono conoscere la biologia riproduttiva di Caretta caretta e svolgeranno attività di sensibilizzazione per orientare la fruizione della spiaggia verso forme compatibili con l’importanza del sito (distribuiranno posacenere per evitare l'abbandono di mozziconi sulla spiaggia, inviteranno al rispetto delle norme comportamentali da osservare, contribuiranno alla tutela dello specchio acqueo antistante la spiaggia mediante una canoa, ecc.).

I volontari, inoltre, collaboreranno nelle attività di rilevamento dei dati sulla fruizione e saranno di sostegno agli operatori addetti al monitoraggio per il rilevamento dei dati sui nidi di tartaruga e sui piccoli. I turni notturni si svolgeranno presso la struttura ubicata all’ingresso della riserva e sono finalizzati ad impedire l’accesso in spiaggia di eventuali visitatori durante la notte, che potrebbero pregiudicare gli eventi di nidificazione della tartaruga.

ATTIVITA’ FORMATIVE: All’inizio di ogni campo i volontari parteciperanno ad un incontro formativo presso la sede della Riserva (tenuto dal personale della Riserva), durante il quale verranno fornite le principali informazioni sull’area protetta (storia, caratteristiche, regolamento, ecc.)  e sulla biologia della tartaruga marina.

ALLOGGIO: I volontari saranno ospitati in una casa poco distante dal centro del paese, con cucina attrezzata, due bagni e camere dotate di letti a castello.  

REQUISITI RICHIESTI: Buona attitudine a camminare; capacità di svolgere le attività anche in presenza di particolari condizioni climatiche (essere in grado di trascorrere diverse ore sotto il sole, ma anche in presenza di vento, umidità, pioggia, zanzare…). Non costituisce un requisito obbligatorio, ma per chi ne ha le capacità, è richiesto l’utilizzo di una canoa e saper montare una tenda da campo. Il campo non è adatto a persone con disabilità (fisiche o psichiche)
