First the participants will prepare a street theatre with clear environmental message, adding their own creative performances (dance, music, joggling, and singing). They will be sharing ideas and creating a really spectacular performance in each village they visit along the way. The message that the participants will be spreading will be based on environmentalism and creativity. After which, we shall head off on our caravan with our donkeys! We will stop at each village and perform our shows and workshops which we have prepared. The local people can then share their thoughts of environmentalism, donkeys and the workshops we are doing. We hope we will stay in each village we perform in, with tents or sport centres, and meet lots of interesting people along the way, although the final agenda will not be known until few days before the camp starts, as we depend on local municipalities to support the performance or not. The video of past year’s Donkey Caravan can be seen here:

The town hall of Braojos is providing us the youth hostel of the town. The hostel has 10 rooms with bunk beds (rooms for 4 to 10) to share within participants, with separate toilet area. Boys and girls will sleep separately. The volunteers have to bring their own matters, sleeping bags and sheets. Food will be prepared by the volunteers: breakfasts and dinners will be in the hostel and the lunch (in a form of picnic) will be brought to the place of work.
This project will include a one day only vegan food day agreed by volunteers for the promotion of environmental sustainable lifestyle.
Sierra Norte (Braojos), Madrid
This project is done with De Amicitia funds and therefore we are the local partner. However the town where the project starts is a rural town called Braojos, whose town hall should be considered as the partner of the project as well together with the town halls of the other municipalities that we will performance our show.
Mat and sleeping bag required.
