AREA viva - Association foR Ecology and Agriculture realizes project Rural Eco Lifestyle Unlimited (RELU). Volunteer from Germany will spend a year in Valeč, co. Karlovy Vary since June 2015. According to the official assessment it is a geographically and socially excluded locality: local young either already left to the towns or remained without motivation and perspetive. Volunteer will become linking element between locals and thematic areas of AREA viva. The aim is to activate youth from Valeč in building construction from alternative materials, organic farm flow, workshops or other soft activities. She herself will also go through a learning process when organizing seminars, participating in coordination WWOOF and related PR activities. The whole motto is “learning by doing”.The volunteer comes from the city, and a year long stay in rural area offers great challenge for her: the clash of different cultures in the undiscovered scenery and a foreign language environment. The challenge will be to create space in these scenes for solidarity and tolerance among young people, and what is more, their openness to the idea that they themselves can and should step out, go for an experience and bring to use new skills bask in their homeland eventually.
We are looking forward volunteer's arrival. Reagarding our experience with EVS volunteers, we believe that Valeč would become nice open place to live.
