Ruralise Yourself: results (II)

This is the second part of the results and outcomes of our “Ruralise Yourself!” international training course, which took place in Valeri, Asturias, from 5th to 11th May 2014. Enjoy!

Skills sharing

We made marigold handcream during the training course.

Calendula handcream making (Medium)

Here you have the recipe. Do it yourself!

“Dry the petals. Then, infuse them in oil in a water bath for 45 min. Melt wax and strain it, if necessary (the wax must be clean of impurities). Mix 5 tbsp of oil, 2 of wax and 1 of lavender or any other powerful flower’s extract, and mix it very well, in order to create a uniform cream. Then leave it to rest in a recipient.

Recipe to do the lavander extract:
– Pour 2 cups of 100 proof vodka into the jar of flowers.
– Cut 100 flower heads and put into a sterile jar.
– Twist the lid on, shake, and place out of direct sunlight.
Shake once a day during 8 days.

As you can see, I recomend to increment the proportion of oil, because the other day the cream was a bit hard, but it depends how you like it. While mixing it, you can see the consistence and correct the proportion as you like. But I think with 5 tbsp of oil instead of 4, might work!” Lidia Fanjul, from Gaiaysofia

We also made toothpaste: http://www.diynatural.com/homemade-toothpaste/

And learned how to make soap: http://smallnotebook.org/tutorials/beginner-soapmaking/

Ruralise Yourself!: results (I)

Many of you who couldn’t come to our “famous” “Ruralise Yourself!” training course, which took place in Valeri, Asturias, 5th to 11th May 2014,  have been asking for some information about the results and conclussions of the training course. It is hard to convey everything that happened during those wonder days, but we will do our best to at least share some of it with you readers.

This time we won’t bore you with tons of graphs like we did other times, but we will post only one, maybe the most compelling and representative one:

Evaluation Ruralise Yourself
As you can see, 100% of participants were happy with the general organisation of the course, with 66% being totally happy, 32% being very happy and 2% just happy.

Also, 98% of participants said that their expectations were met!… which we think is totally amazing, because expectations are usually high and it’s so difficult to meet everyones’. We are flattered! 58% of participants said their expectations have been totally met, 30% said very much met and 12% said they were met.

But what we probably care about the most is the answers to the next question, which reflect that the main aim of our training course was achieved!: “Are you more prepared and motivated  to live in a rural area?”, with an stunning 100% of positive answers!!! 59% feel totally prepared, 25% very prepared and 14% just prepared. We are very excited and proud of this!!

All participants were also willing to make their personal compromises (the ones that they made during the last day of the training course) a reality, and we will see in the following lines that they actually did it, and 98% of them established strong bonds with other participants, which fullfills another one of our aims, which was to expand the network of “ruralisation”.

Personal compromises

As we just said, all participants were willing to make their personal compromises a reality, and here are some testimonies which proove that they’ve managed, at least partially!

“Until now, I didn’t go to live in the countryside, but I increased my awareness about living in a more sustainable way. I use more bicycle instead of other means of transport, I buy fruit and vegetables not from big chains but from a small shop with local products, I try to save more electricity, water and to use less plastic bags, utensils, etc.
But the most important thing is that at “Ruralize Yourself” training I saw life from a different perspective. I met people with a very different world view from myself, which opened my eyes to see social and environmental problems from a different angle. More or less I am infiltrated with a consumer mindset, but in Valeri I met people who are just the opposite. We discussed many social, economic and environmental issues and I learned a lot of facts and information I would never know otherwise.” Ignat Stoychev, Bulgaria.

“I just changed the way I was thinking about life, dreams, goals and what I really want to do and to be as a person. I can`t say I made my compromise a reality, cause there is still a long way to pass, but for sure I am working on it all the time. Thank you for everything :)” Lyubomir Kovachev, Bulgaria.

“I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and I did it. I am involved in two projects this summer and I am more active and motivated than before the project. I want to buy a piece of land and so far this hasn’t become a reality but I am sure in time it will”. Roxana Vacareanu, Romania (living in Valencia, Spain).

You can read more juicy testimonies from participants in this other post: https://asociacionbiodiversa.wordpress.com/2014/07/10/ruralise-yourself-testimonies/

Guidelines

Together, participants extracted and selected tips and advices, resources, warnings, inspirational questions and drawings from the training course aiming to serve those of you who couldn’t be there with us. This is the result:

Curso de formación “Comunidades en Transición: alternativas para una vida urbana sostenible”

logos DG-TCTC-JeA7 días para modelar el paradigma de la sostenibilidad.

Ciudades verdes, carrot mobs, jardinería de guerrilla, pico del petróleo, decrecimiento, fracking, pechakucha, green drinks, dragon dreaming… son sólo algunos de los temas que trataron 34 líderes juveniles procedentes de países tan dispares como Armenia, Azerbayán, Chipre, Georgia, Moldova, Polonia, República Checa, Ucrania y España, a lo largo de una intensa semana en una casa rural del idílico entorno de Valdediós, en Asturias.

Group pic TCTCTEl encuentro tuvo lugar del 27 de Mayo al 2 de Junio de 2013. 

Basándonos en métodos propios de la educación no formal, y apoyados en la inteligencia colectiva, compartimos, descubrimos y creamos iniciativas ciudadanas y proyectos colectivos que nos permitirán hacer nuestras ciudades más habitables, convertirlas en espacios de encuentro y solidaridad, y disminuir sus efectos sobre el cambio climático.

Circle around the heart of socksEl curso incluyó una visita de estudio a una pequeña “comunidad” en transición en Bimenes, donde los amables Ramón y Yosune imbuyeron a los participantes con su sabiduría y entusiasmo por los principios de la permacultura y la sostenibilidad, mostrándonos y explicándonos el porqué de cada uno de los elementos que componen cuidadosamente su pequeño imperio en La Buruyosa. ¡Muchas gracias, Ramón y Yosune por abrirnos la puerta de vuestra casa y de vuestros corazones!

En La BuruyosaFlorent Marcellesi lideró una de las sesiones más valoradas por los participantes: el taller sobre decrecimiento, que comenzó con 6 personas teniendo que repartirse 24 lápices equitativamente y 24 personas teniendo que repartirse 6 lápices equitativamente: el 20% de la población gasta el 80% de los recursos disponibles… Flo despertó conciencias y nos hizo ver que no hay otra alternativa posible que el decrecimiento.

sharing pencilsTambién hubo tiempo para la cultura y la fiesta, con una noche intercultural en la que los participantes compartieron comidas, bebidas y bailes tradicionales de sus respectivos países, y una noche asturiana en la que disfrutamos de una auténtica eco-espicha asturiana con gaitero, bailarines y hasta pandereteras ataviadas con el traje típico asturiano y una gran sonrisa.  ¡Muchas gracias a Pindy el gaitero, Iñigo el cocinero, Nacho el bailarín y a las pandereteras de Serendén!

34 jóvenes líderes de 9 países (Armenia, Azerbaiján, Chipre, República Checa, Georgia, Moldavia, Polonia, Ucrania y España) compartirán experiencias,  intercambiarán ideas y buscarán soluciones para adaptar sus comunidades a los actuales retos medioambientales que representan el pico del petróleo, el cambio climático y, en definitiva, la crisis ecológica actual. Tratarán de interiorizar el concepto de resiliencia y preparse tanto individual como colectivamente para afrontar la transición hacia la sostenibilidad.

El curso tendrá lugar en Valeri, Asturias, y contará, entre otras cosas, con talleres de construcción de comunidades, dinámicas de empoderamiento, noche intercultural, debates y ponencias de expertos en decrecimiento y transición.  Durante el curso, los participantes elaborarán varios proyectos que podrán implementar de regreso a sus países. Recibirán a su término un certificado Youthpass.

Esta experiencia de aprendizaje se desarrolla a través de métodos de educación no formal, combinando educación entre iguales con formación y orientación por parte de formadores y facilitadores experimentados.

Si estás interesada en participar escríbenos cuanto antes (límite Domingo 19 de Mayo) un email en Inglés a asociacionbiodiversa@gmail.com diciéndonos tu nombre, apellidos, edad, dirección y teléfono de contacto, contándonos brevemente quien eres y por qué te interesa participar en este curso, poniendo “Rural and Women Entrepreneurship PBA – (Nombre, Comunidad Autónoma)” en el asunto.

 Seleccionaremos a 3 personas.

 ¡Suerte!

Partnership Building Activity – “Rural and Women Entrepreneurship”

The PBA “Rural and Women Entrepreneurship” aims to empower rural and women entrepreneurship by offering a space for skills development in the domain, share of good experiences and set up pilot projects and partnerships among different organizations coming from rural area. Participants will get familiar with European rural reality and will explore the similarities and differences of participating countryside and deprived areas. They will share the social problems of their community, and will find out how other countries are dealing with them in particular using the concept of social entrepreneurship.

The project is coming together to mobilize the potential productivity of rural people, especially of women, who can contribute to economic growth and globalization. Women’s role, productivity and equality will be explored in the context of entrepreneurship and employment.

The PBA will inform participants about the possibilities offered by Youth in Action programme and other European institutions supporting youth initiatives, involvement and development of rural youngsters.

The project will run between 1st and 8th August 2013 in Loughborough, UK as a result of co-operation among Biodiversa and 9 other organizations from Programme Countries (the UK, Italy, Turkey, Greece, Romania, Estonia, Norway, Hungary and Poland).

Dates: 1-8 August 2013

Venue: Loughborough, UK

Conditions: participants will be youth workers or youth leaders of age 18+, able to work in English, motivated and interested in the topic. Preference will be given to rural women entrepreneurs from Asturias or other areas in the north atlantic coast of Spain.

Costs: You will have to cover 30% of your travel costs (you will have to purchase tickets yourself and will be reimbursed in cash on the project) plus 50 EURO Participation FEE which will be deducted from the reimbursement. We normally ask for participants to become members of Biodiversa (15 EUR), to cover our administration costs; in this case it will not be obligatory but optional, as we think that the participation fee imposed by the host it’s already quite high and we want to make this course accesible to as many people as possible.

The other 70% of your travel costs will be covered by the organizers. The organizers will also provide and cover costs of the accommodation, three meals a day and coffee breaks during the training. This is possible thanks to the Youth in Action programme of the European Commission.
