Start date: Aug 3, 2015,

The project will take place at “The Aquascole” at St Pierre de Coutances. We propose an individual EVS as we have one place for a project with a duration of 11 months. The participants can have origin from any country as long as they are eligible to participate in the “Erasmus +” program. In the case of our project, the participating countries are Latvia and France. We are going to host a young latvian boy or girl who will have the possibility to participate at the organisation’s AVRIL activities which are about environmental education and sustainable development from the 1st of October 2015 till the 31st of August 2016.
This project will give to the volunteer the possibility to work together with the staff of the organisation by:
− Helping at the organisation and the realisation of various European projects such as youth exchanges, trainings for young European adults under the program Erasmus +, Interreg, etc.
− Helping in the construction of educational tools (from the concept to use it at workshops)
− Participating in various workshops alongside other young people, mostly job-seekers on the basis of a reinsertion project.
− Building relations with high schools and senior high schools in Coutances (and in the surroundings) in order to promote the EVS.
− Participating at ‘Europe’s Club’ at Jeun-Paul II High School/Senior High School at Coutances.

− Promoting his country of origin, Latvia.
− Meeting and working together with our local partners.
− Promote European citizenship and the awareness of the need for a sustainable development.
− Involve a young latvian in our environmental education activities so that when he returns to his country he can share the knowledge and values he has acquired, particularly around the subject of water.
− Discuss with the local population about life in his country of origin, Latvia, by sharing her experiences with them.
− Familiarise young locals with the subject of international mobility.
