Are you fascinated by the medieval universe? Sign up and come and experience two weeks of volunteering in an authentic district of Noyon!
Built in Roman times, Noyon has grown through the ages and left its mark. The town was notably home to the coronation of Charlemagne. Thus, it is possible today to walk in the heart of the cathedral quarter, a true witness of the medieval organization. However, its history does not stop there. Noyon also bears witness to the impact of the Great War.
You will renovate a big wall located in front of the Noyon cathedral, in the heart of the town centre. The intervention will consist in unjoining a wall on the public domain and to carry out visible stone coatings.
Accommodatie en maaltijden
Accommodation will be in tents, girls and boys separated, behind the Jean Bouin gymnasium. The showers (non-mixed) will be at your disposal in this gymnasium. You will share the different collective tasks and prepare meals together. The collective life, as well as the kitchen area will take place under a big tent.
Locatie en vrije tijd
