Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for 2 Estonian volunteers for the European Solidarity Corps group volunteering placement called “EURO BIKE TOUR” for 5 weeks, which will take place from 28th April to 3rd June 2020 in Salento, South-Italy.
Hosting Organization: VulcanicaMente http://www.vulcanicamente.it
“Euro Bike Tour” is a volunteering project that aims to promote dialogue between European volunteers, institutions, and local community, with the aim of fostering constructive and supportive debate about sustainable mobility in a European context. For the occasion of Europe Day (9th May) the project intends to promote the opportunities of Erasmus+ throughout May.
Volunteers will learn how to plan bike trip itineraries and later disseminate their unique experience. They will be deeply involved in this creative process and become active citizens designing social campaigns and events to raise awareness about sustainable mobility in Europe.
Lecce is a beautiful baroque style city in the very south of Italy, in the region of Apulia. More precisely, it is situated in Salento that is surrounded by incredible seaside and beautiful natural sights. Salento is rich in culture. The project covers the whole region of Salento.
Profile of the volunteer:
- aged 18-30
- resident in Estonia
- “We are looking for motivated, bright and energetic volunteers, eco-friendly and bike-friendly, who want to spread knowledge and share their skills. Therefore, volunteers should have a good motivation to ride; to learn and support VulcanicaMente activities; be interested in the project topic; be open-minded and respectful towards other people, spaces and cultures; be interested in non- formal education; willing to work in a dynamic team; be creative and proactive, proposing personal projects and ideas.”
NB! As it is group volunteering, you are eligible to apply even if you did a long-term EVS/ESC!
Activities of the volunteer:
You will volunteer 5 days a week up to 38 hours per week. You will have two days off per week for the duration of the project, except for the two weeks of the bike tour; these days off will be given afterwards. The weekly timetable can be changed in accordance with the staff of VulcanicaMente. Our organisation is based in Lecce and San Cesario di Lecce. Volunteers will get to experience workshops and outings by bike, discovering towns and surrounding countryside. The participants will have the chance to explore and understand the contexts where NGOs operate.
The activities are divided into 3 phases, before the bike tour, during and after the bike tour.
