Travel and meet artisans, discover the built heritage arts and crafts… This is the project of 25 youngsters from France, Belgium, Germany, Turkey and United Kingdom who will meet in Montaigu-le-Blin, small village in Allier, Auvergne, in France, from August 17th to 31st, 2015. The medieval fortress of Montaigu-le-Blin, classified as Historical Monuments, is located in a territory rich with built heritage, gathering numerous artisans and craftsmen still in activity. This projects aims at gathering youngsters from various geographical and social backgrounds in order to make them discover some of this heritage-related jobs, understand the trainings and job opportunities, but alos t exchange about their respective cultures. After visiting the fortress of Montaigu and imagining how it was built, the participants will visit several carftsmen and several heritage sites of the territory. They will then create a booklet to present the jobs they would have discovered. This booklet will introduce jobs related to construction, restauration and valorisation of built heritage. It will be written in several languages and edited by the youngsters. It will then be spread on the territory, towards the Youth structures of Montaigu-le-Blin and surroundings, and in every country involved in the project. The spreading of the booklet will help sensitize local youngsters, in addition to the participants of the project, to te existence of these heriage-related jobs. The project also aims at an impact on the local territory. Bringing more visibility for the the Erasmus + programme an youth exchanges on a rural territory, and by organising this intercultural meeting in the small dynamic villageof Montaigu-le-Blin, we expect to encourage the implementation of more mobility projects for the regional youngsters. All this is part of a long term project of territory development with the community of communes Varennes-Forterre, on the issues of Youth and Employment. We expect the implementation of complementary actions in a pluri-annual agreement, towards youth and youth workers on the territory.
