Alter Nativa is NGO active in sustainable rural development with most of the activities realized in local community of mountainous multicultural village Brdarka and its surroundings. This EVS project will give opportunity to two European volunteers to be actively involved in activities of organisation connected with long-term programme Centre of Alternative Lifestyle. Two partners from France and Hungary are cooperating on this project as sending organisations and each of them will send one volunteer for 12 months.
The main aim of the project is practical education and application of theoretical information about sustainable lifestyle and Permaculture.
Volunteers will be actively involved in both theoretical and practical activities. They will help with building the structures of the Centre and also take part in organizing public seminars, courses (Permaculture, natural building) and hand-crafts workshops in Alter Nativa which will encourage their own creativity and enterprise ability.
