Come and discovered all the richness of a neighbourhood in Saint-Priest by participating in different solidarity actions!
In connection with a network of local partners, we offer you an immersion in solidarity by taking part in different actions for or with different audiences. The program will be built during spring. A Street Art project is already being considered as well as the organisation of workshops for young people in leisure centres. The network of associations is very varied, you could work in a garden of insertion by the ecological market gardening, you could participate in a sports tournament, organize festive events for the inhabitants...
This workcamp does not require any specific skills. If you are sensitive to social action, creative and like to work in a team in a project with several partners in an intercultural context, this workcamp is for you.
Accommodatie en maaltijden
You will be accommodated in apartments which will be summarily furnished (2-3 people per room) for the occasion. Don't forget to bring a sleeping bag. You will have access to the toilets and showers inside each apartment as well as a common room. You will be able to use the kitchens for the preparation of meals. You will take part in the preparation of the meals, using products that will be bought nearby. We will favour local products. Tastings of local products are also possible with local producers.
Locatie en vrije tijd
The town of Saint-Priest is one of the 59 communes of the Metropolis of Lyon. With more than 45,000 inhabitants, it is the 5th most populated city in the department. It is located in the east of Lyon and has all the amenities associated with life in an urban environment on its territory. It is connected to the city of Lyon by tramway and benefits from a dense and varied public transport network (bicycle, bus...).
The town of Saint-Priest is made up of several working-class districts, each with its own history and particularities. It also has many green and agricultural areas that make it a very pleasant city alternating urban and preserved areas.
You will have the chance to take part in many cultural and sporting activities proposed by the associations as part of a programme outside the walls. You will also be able to attend the traditional fireworks display on July 14th (French national holiday) from the Coline de Fourviere in Lyon. The Metropolis of Lyon will offer you a wide variety of possibilities for visits (Fourviere Basilica, the historic districts of Croix-Rousse and Vieux-Lyon, the Tete d'Or Park, the Confluence Museum...).
Remember to take working clothes and shoes. Also take suitable clothing for your excursions in case of rain. We provide air mattresses but don’t forget your sleeping bag and possibly an extra camping mat for your comfort. Don't forget sun protection (hat, glasses, cream...) and your swimsuit for swimming (swimming pools, water sports bases...). Convivial times will be programmed in connection with our camp leaders and according to your wishes. If you wish to share a bit of your culture (recipes, traditional stories, unusual objects...), don't hesitate to take a little piece of your country in your backpack!
