This project will consist of designing and building a block of outdoor solar showers, then creating a solar water heater. To build the outdoor showers, you'll need to: do plumbing work, remove and fix the facing stones, create the formwork to then pour and lay a concrete slab, set up wooden sheds, construct an access aisle, then design and fix the hooks and towel rails. To create the solar water heater, you will: prepare the ground by leveling it and laying a concrete slab, prepare, paint and install the tank , cut and set the structure, cut and install the insulation, and finally, put in water.
Accommodatie en maaltijden
You will sleep in tents with access to outdoor showers as well as dry toilets. Food is provided, and meals will be prepared by the volunteers themselves in turns. Meals will be had under a big tent outside, or, in case of bad weather, inside in the dining room of the castle. We provide a fully equipped kitchen and activity rooms.
Locatie en vrije tijd
Location: A former bourgeois home, the Castle Les Prureaux is in the middle of an agricultural area. Since 1993, our association has worked to maintain and enhance the historic buildings on the site. This "permanent" project, led by volunteers and hosting young peopleall year round, remains a rich educational opportunity that supports exchange, doing, and collaboration.
Leisure activities: Afternoons and weekends are collectively planned with the whole group. If you like spending time in the city, Moulins and Vichy are located about 40 kms away. If you’re more of the countryside type, don't hesitate to discover the region on foot or by bike, explore the banks of the canals, swim, or take advantage of local festivities and cultural events.
This project is financed by the Franco-German Youth Office (OFAJ in French) and is reserved for German and Italian volunteers. You will get travel reimbursement.
