Youth and biodiversity! These are the two key elements of this project. Under the guidance of a local nature conservation organization (NABU), you will work together to ecologically improve the outdoor area of the CHILLOUD youth club. Specifically, you will • create a wetland biotope; • construct special raised beds for butterflies and bees. The existing trees will be integrated into the concept. There are already many rare species on the site, and in the future the outdoor area will become the perfect place for environmental learning and activities. Young people should like to spend time here and also like to chill outside. Besides the ecological aspect, the encounter is particularly important. You will work together with young people from Markgröningen, they will show you their hometown and do many exciting activities with you.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

You will live directly in the youth club. In the building there is a kitchen, sanitary facilities and one shower. If the weather is nice, there will be additional tents for sleeping, so there is even more space for everyone. Wi-Fi is available, but no washing machine. Please bring a sleeping bag. Your group of volunteers will be responsible for grocery shopping and cooking together. The food will be bought with the camp budget and everybody will take turns for cooking, washing the dishes and cleaning. In order to reduce our carbon footprint on the planet, we encourage volunteers to reduce meat and try more sustainable dishes.

Locatie en vrije tijd

Markgröningen is a very nice town with approx. 15.000 inhabitants, not far from Stuttgart (20km). The historic city center is absolutely worth seeing. The many half-timbered houses, the market square, the small cafés and shops attract not only tourists, but locals also enjoy their time. The direct surroundings of the youth center offer many opportunities for outdoor sports (hiking, BMX track, canoeing, and all kinds of ball sports). Excursions to Stuttgart or Ludwigsburg, to the vineyards of the Neckar valley and much more are possible. Most importantly, you always have your local guides to give you tips or even show you around.


The local youth club CHILLOUD in Markgröningen hosts international volunteers for the first time. The youth club is an open public institution which all young people from Markgröningen can join, without inscription and without any fee. Young people aged 12 to 25 meet here (different time slots for different age groups), they chill together, professional youth workers offer activities and workshops. You will be in close contact with the local youth. The aim of the project is to ecologically enhance the outdoor area of the youth centre. You will work together under the guidance of a local nature conservation organization and otherwise do excursions and other activities together.


This project is only for volunteers aged 16-25 from Baden-Württemberg, Lombardy, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and Catalunya (or with a close link to these regions). Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all volunteers need to be either fully vaccinated (2 to 3 shots of one of the following vaccines: BioNtech/Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca or Johnson&Johnson) or recovered (date of infection must be at least 28 days old and max 90 days old).


Attention: This project is dedicated to volunteers from the four partner regions of Baden-Wurttemberg, Lombardy, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and Catalonia. We want to demonstrate that youth is an essential part of a partnership and that this partnership cannot be reduced to the sectors of economy, science, culture and administration. Therefore you should either come from one of these four regions or have a close link to them.
