We are in love with the mountain way of life, join us and enjoy a wonderful experience in the Dolomites mountains where you are going to support the local community to rebuild the mountains path destruct after the “Vaia” strorm!
WORK: Paths maintenance in order to make the paths well-visible and practicable. Removal of stones and broken branches. Removal of potholes and cutting grass and shrubs. It’s also necessary removal rubbish and filth. Planned hours of work: 5-6 hours/day probably in the mornings per 5 days/week. Volunteers should have a predisposition to walk and work on mountain paths and a correct environmental education. Volunteers are also expected to make an effort to interact with local community.
ACCOMMODATION AND FOOD: the volunteers are expected to cook the meals themselves. Food issues: getting vegetarian food is not difficult. Accommodation: in the municipal gym. Bunk beds in a shared male/female room. The structure has showers and toilet services. There is kitchen and living area. The volunteers are expected to do the cleaning themselves.
LOCATION: the camp base is the town of Agordo, located about 100 Km north of Venice, frequently referred as the “Heart of Dolomities”, is actually one of the main access point to the Dolomites mountain range (UNESCO World heritage site). It’s a small quiet town, which economy is based on eyewear industry.
PROJECT: This project was born thanks to the collaboration between the Town of Agordo and the associations CAI (Italian Alpine Club), A.S.D. Dolomiti Sport Republik and Piodec Taibon, that take care and maintenance our mountain paths. The purpose of this project is improving the situation of our territory after the “Vaia” storm, in particularly we want to clean and restore the paths along our mountain for hiking and bike riding. This kind of maintenance is actually carried on mostly by groups of local volunteers, so we have thought to create an international cooperation to doing so. Besides, we are proud to hosting volunteers from all over the world and we aim to create a cultural exchange between volunteers and local community.
