Mexico | Sociaal en natuur

Samen met 14 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 13 dagen naar een sociaal en natuurproject.
Het project duurt van 11 t/m 24 juli.

Let op: naast het inschrijfgeld betaal je ter plekke nog een lokale bijdrage van € 190.
Volunteers are expected to be creative, active and eager to take initiative. They should also be collaborative, tolerant and flexible while working. The volunteers will be working and modifying certain intersection signs on the streets of Morelia on conflicting points for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians. They will also be working on creating some murals on pedestrian areas of the city. They can also contribute to the project with examples from their own countries.
Food and accommodation will be provided during the workcamp.
The camp will be organized at Morelia city, a very beautiful place and the state capital of Michoacan. It’s a dynamic and beautiful city and an increasingly popular tourist destination, and rightly so: the colonial heart of the city is so well preserved that it was declared a Unesco World Heritage site in 1991, and its cathedral is not just gorgeous, it’s inspirational. Morelia, founded in 1541, was one of the first Spanish cities in Nueva España. The first viceroy, Antonio de Mendoza, named it Valladolid after the Spanish city and he encouraged Spanish nobility to move here with their families. In 1828, after Nueva España had become the Republic of Mexico, the city was renamed Morelia in honor of local hero José María Morelos y Pavón, a key figure in Mexico’s independence.

The objective of this project is to increase the consciousness regarding following the rules of traffic. In Morelia, the cyclists and pedestrians are in a vulnerable position especially at the intersections. In order to decrease the number of accidents, the volunteers will help recreating the intersection signs and will contribute to creating mechanisms to analyze other projects relate to the motorized mobility in cities and its problems.
