This project aims to involve the volunteers in a series of concrete actions to encourage civic engagement and commitment to the protection of the environment. These concrete actions will take place in the public space, with the creation of ecological modules in wood and the transformation of objects into ecological modules: - Transformation of an old fridge into a flower box. - Transformation of an old sink into a flower box. - Creation of insect hotels for the town centre of La Ferté Alais. - Creation of nesting boxes for the town centre of La Ferté Alais. This project proposes a reflection on citizen participation: what does it mean to be committed? What does it mean to have an influence on your social and cultural environment?  Are we actors of change? Is civil disobedience a citizen action? Can the individual act without the collective? Volunteers will participate in workshops to exchange and debate on themes related to civic engagement and participation.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

Collective accommodation in tents, yurts and tipis. Sanitary facilities and kitchen available. This international youth volunteer work camp is organised in such a way that each participant takes part in all aspects of daily life. This is to encourage exchanges between the young people, their responsibility, and the discovery of the local culture. In groups, organised in rotation in the schedules, the young people, accompanied by an employee and volunteers from the association, are in charge of preparing meals and maintaining the communal areas.

Locatie en vrije tijd

La Ferté-Alais, near Paris. During the afternoons, the volunteers will participate in workshops for reflection and exchange, and cultural discovery. In order to encourage the participation of young people, time is set aside for participants to propose and implement their ideas for workshops, activities and visits. The co-construction of the activity schedule is a central element in the implementation of the educational project, which aims to develop the participation of young people, their capacity for autonomy and responsibility. The discovery activities are centered around the visit and the exchange with partners involved in citizenship issues: - Visit to the Base in Paris (a place of civic engagement) - Workshop "La Fresque du Climat" at the Maison Zero Déchet in Paris - Repair Café at the café Le P'tit Cerny


The town of La Ferté Alais has been organising international volunteer workcamps for several years. The municipality is very attached to these projects, which enable the local heritage to be enhanced and to create a time of activity in the municipality, particularly for young people. In partnership with the municipality, the Vir'Volt association has a reception area to set up international projects, bringing together young people from all over the world and local young people. On this site, the Vir'Volt association develops international workcamps on the theme of eco-responsible practices. The young people are asked to participate in the development of the international host site, by building various pieces of furniture from recycled materials, the construction of the floor of two new yurts intended to host workshops on eco-responsible practices and ecological modules aimed at fighting global warming. Welcoming young people from all over the world, getting to know each other and learning from our differences To think and act together for the protection of the environment; to have a positive impact on the places and people living around the site or simply passing through... This is the project of this future village, which every year is built thanks to the young people who come to contribute, putting solidarity at the centre of their actions.


This project is financed by the French German Youth Office and will gather French, German and Ukrainian volunteers. Participants will receive a partial travel reimbursement.
