EVS INTERCULTURAL FOOD FUSION 2016
Start date: 15 Aug 2016, End date: 14 Apr 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

We, VEDISCHER TEMPEL UND KUHSCHUTZ e.V., would like to invite a volunteer for a year to our premises, to share our knowledge and experience and to benefit from the new thoughts and approaches of a new person. Volunteer will be able to enjoy a unique environment while broadening his horizons, making new friendships and experiencing different cultures.With us the volunteer can spend time in an eco-friendly farm with and a community of some 30 members (singles and families) living a simple life in harmony with nature. He can raise awareness about healthy living, enhancing international dialogue, providing intercultural education, learning about spiritual life, ecology and self-sustainability. The volunteer will be able to gain knowledge and experience through the personal association with people from different cultural backgrounds. The weekly schedule is flexible and will be finally adjusted with the volunteer, taking into account suggested activities and his learning needs. The volunteer will have the opportunity to develop his own project and or activities within our organisation or on his own. Also he will have an English language teacher so that he can learn English, if needed.An important asset would be a general interest in sustainable food, plant-based cooking and environmental and health issues, a person who feels that he want to learn and to help people and our planet.The volunteer will find with us a perfect context to increase his awareness on these topics by being actively involved in several activities and having the opportunity to gain confidence with our working principles and possibly feeling proud of his contribution.Our partnership with the organisation from Austria – Grenzenlos – interkultureller Austausch – is new, and we see it to be very productive and valuable. Our partner has vast experience in sending and accepting volunteers, they share our core values of caring about the environment, promoting intercultural dialogue, sustainable living. We are interested in the work they do in promoting the capacities and skill sets of European individuals and would like to establish an exchange of understanding from the activists of this organisation. Additionally we will be looking forward to send volunteers back to Austria as a part of the wider activities and opportunities of the partner organisation, to give them possibility to establish experience of the true meaning of being a European citizen, getting to know the different countries and cultures within the European sphere.Volunteering young man will learn to look outside his own cultural framework by working for one year in a totally different setting.
