Ferme du Plessis, France
July 24th - August 1st 2010
This year two different camps will run concurrently at the French centre. One will be entitled Embracing Life and contain workshops and talks designed to motivate young people into living naturally in order to create a bright & sustainable future. Participants will choose from a variety of workshops each corresponding to a pillar of Ayudh’s objectives: Community Service, Artistic development, Revitalisation & Ecology. Br. Shubamrita & Bri. Dipamrita will provide their great insight on these topics in a lively & inspirational manner.
60 participants between 15 and 30 years of age from 9 European countries (Austria, Ireland, Italy, France, Germany, Holland, Spain, Sweden and UK) will take part in “Embracing Life”.
The EU will refund 70 % of the travel costs and certify the participation with the EU-YouthPass.
The other, Experience Week, contains hands-on, practical, ecological projects that will be designed and presented by professionals in those particular areas. Vital skills to preserve our earth will be modelled & practiced, along with increasing our relationship with nature and the environment. Projects include restoring a traditional dovecote, seed saving & building a sustainable astronomy observatory. This exchange is for youth between 18 and 32 years of age.
Both exchanges promise to be inspiring, motivating & encouraging. The French venue provides many examples of ecological projects that are sure to participants. Some events include a visit to the famous Chartres cathedral, a party, bonfire, sports & lots of fun.
