The aim of this project is to renovate the counterscarp wall of the Fort Vauban citadel. The renovation project aims to restore this historic structure in order to preserve its integrity, guarantee the stability of the site and highlight the rich local cultural heritage, following an approach that respects the original characteristics of the wall.
Accompanied by a specialist technical supervisor, you will initially be responsible for removing the vegetation from the facade, then disjointing and repointing with lime mortar. You'll learn a variety of techniques, including traditional masonry.
You will be working mornings of 5 to 6 hours. Dismantling, cleaning, repairing and consolidating the counterscarp wall will be part of the work programme. Come with work clothes or clothes that may be damaged or dirty. We will provide you with safety equipment. No qualifications are required for this project.

Food will be provided for breakfast, lunch and dinner (you will have a food budget which the leaders will manage and communicate with you throughout the work camp). Meals will be prepared in turn by you, especially for lunch and dinner, while respecting environmental values and local resources, as well as everyone's culture (hot and cold dishes as well as vegetarian and vegan dishes will be prepared).

Located on the estuary of the Charente, the Fouras peninsula is home to 3 harbours and 5 beaches on the Atlantic coast. In an idyllic setting overlooking Fort Boyard, the project will involve renovating Fort Vauban, also known as Fort Sémaphore, which is actually the medieval fortified castle of Fouras. It protected the town from invasion by an enemy landing from the ocean. It is surrounded by 17th-century fortifications: platforms, curtain walls and a massive tower. This project is part of the ongoing partnership with the municipality of Fouras and its desire to pursue local development initiatives (including the renovation of the Fort de l'Aiguille), through the intercultural dynamic created by the youth volunteer projects.

Het inschrijfgeld voor dit project bedraagt € 345, exclusief € 50 korting voor studenten en jongeren onder de 18.
