The project «kNOWledge vol.2» is a project that consists of 2 European Voluntary Service Activities and aims at the promotion of volunteerism and active citizenship, the exchange of knowledge and experiences, as well as the development of stronger collaborations between youth, environmental, cultural, education and social organizations and groups, and local authorities and the support of creativity, active participation, interculturality and social inclusion.The idea for the implementation of this project stems from the recognition of the need to foster volunteerism and empower and activate young people and society in general, as well as the need to support stakeholders that foster creativity, volunteerism, active participation, culture, the environment and social inclusion.Coordinator of the project is Social Youth Development organisation (Greece).Activity A1 involves 4 young volunteers and 4 organisations from Greece, Poland, Tunisia and Ukraine. Hosting organisation is Social Youth Development (Greece), while the organizations from Poland (Fundacja Rozwoju Spoleczenstwa Przedsiebiorczego), Tunisia (ONET/BRCV Sousse) and Ukraine (NGO STELLA) act as sending organisations.

The volunteer will be hosted in the farm Korogonas Ark in Daimonia, Monemvasia, Greece for 9 months, 01/02/2017 - 30/09/2017.Non formal learning tools and methods are in the centre of both activities. We will use a well structured working schedule for all volunteers that aspires to cover the needs and expectations of the participants, as well as support them in developing skills and competences at both personal and professional levels.The impact that we wish to achieve through this project is, on the one hand the development of skills and competences by both participants and participating organizations, and on the other hand a long-term impact on the local communities, especially when it comes to the intercultural dimension of the project.The volunteers will actively participate in activities that allow them to choose between cultural, environmental, and social activities that are structured in a way, so as to support skills development through non-formal education.
