Biodiversa is selecting 3 enthusiastic Spanish participants for its next training course in the french Pyrenees, in partnership with SOLAFRIKA.
When?: 22nd July to 1st August, travel dates included.
What?: This project is a training course about ecology. This topic will allow us to think collectively about one of the most important global issues of today.
Aim: The main goal is to make you aware of a new way of life, healthy and respectful of the environment. This training course will give you tools to act, at your level, in your everyday life, to protect our planet and raise awareness of people around you.
Methods: We will use participative methods. You will have to be active and involved in every workshop and ready to think, analyse and debate.
Venue: The training will take place in a rustic old farm rented by our partner organisation SOLAFRIKA in the countryside, in a village called Bédeille (Ariège, France). The place is confortable enough for everyone, but don’t expect a 5 stars hotel!
