HOPE (Hands-on Project for Europe) intends to give great visibility to the theme of solidarity and volunteering, both with dissemination and information actions and through concrete actions in the fight against climate change.

A group of 12 volunteers (8 Europeans and 4 Italians) and 3 youth workers will carry out activities in the field of sustainable development with a specific focus on the issue of environmental protection. The activity is part of a perspective of initiatives aimed at providing answers to the challenge of climate change.

The activities will take place in the external area of ​​the Agorateca (a community library in Altamura https://www.agorateca.it/ ) and the surrounding urban area, characterized by abandoned green spaces.

The urban regeneration project includes cleaning activities, construction of artifacts and elements of street furniture (benches, signs, etc.) with recycled materials, care of the community garden, organizations of social events and community parties with the inhabitants of the neighborhood, tree planting. The practical activities will be alternated with educational activities on the theme of the environment and climate change, on the themes of solidarity and volunteering. The activities will involve young volunteers and the inhabitants of the neighborhood.

The Profile of the volunteer:

Our ideal volunteer candidate is an open minded person willing to learn, to improve her/himself and to help other people. It is important to be ready to work in a team and to share the daily life with the other volunteers outside in hands-on activities in the garden and in the Agorateca.  Although it is not required to have a high level of English, the volunteers need to have at least a basic knowledge of the language.

Priority is given for volunteers from rural areas and those who never had experience in international mobility before.

Accommodation and food: 

Volunteers are going to share a fully equipped big flat with other young people. The apartment will be located in Altamura.

In the flat each volunteer will share a room and will have to share the kitchen, bathroom and living-room. The volunteers are responsible for the daily cleaning of their own spaces as well as the common spaces. Food allowance and pocket money (40 euros per week as food money + 40 euros per week as pocket money) will be provided.

The Erasmus + Programme will reimburse 100% of the travel costs for the participants (up to 360 euros).
