The work will involve renovating parts of the old town which have fallen into disrepair. The volunteers will rebuild local path and other infraestructures and create the access to the local bridge- the better to ancourage the young people of the area to become active citizens in their town and to try to avoid them leaving to go to bigger cities. Volunteers may organise a happening for locals on the last day to promote the idea of voluntary workcamps.
