From 29 April to 14 May, we're looking for 14 participants between the ages of 18 and 30 to join us in a project focused on sustainability and natural building. Working alongside experts from the Greek organization, you'll help finalize an eco-building in the forest that teaches about living in nature, outdoor and experiential learning, and sustainable practices. You'll have the opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of urban life and immerse yourself in nature, while camping and living in a community. In this project, you will support the organisation of a natural building workshop open to international participants and you'll work together and learn how to build with natural materials and help finalize a hobbit house, a tree house and a kitchen. This project is based on the work done in previous Roots and roofs projects that happened in 2023. Please mind that travel days will be 29th April and 14th of May; for green travel there can be more than 1 travel day.
