However that task had to be changed do to the conditions and now volunteers will be doing manual work that means painting, trying to keep the streets and environment tidy, gardening in the parks of the municipality and helping in the irrigation and maintenance of the local parks, as there is a deficit of keepers and the Town Hall needs support, as well as helping in other tasks that may be required. We will still may have some space for creating workshops for the local kids from 3 to 12 years old as we did previous years creating games and to be the first contact in English comunication for those kids that they donIt have opportunity to learn and practice English language. Still social distance measures oblige us to prepare working activitis with low risk and therefore manual work to support this lovely town in Andalucia is a way to keep alive a workcamp that has been running for years.

Open Houses ( rooms open for those who come along.Open Houses ( not empty buildings, but places with visible and invisible traces of history, places which have grown and decayed over the centuries, places which were shaped by those people who lived there long ago as well those who left only yesterday ( places which will be shaped by those who live there or who come as a guest.Open Houses ( rooms which want to be filled with dreams and ideas, with meetings and exchange, by people of different backgrounds, different cultures, different generations and different ideas and visions.The history of Open Houses Network dates back to the mid-1980s, when a group of young people started to restore village churches in East Germany in voluntary work to protect them from decay. The engagement for these buildings united people who enjoyed the freedom these activities provided and who filled these rooms with life again in ways which by far exceed the craftsmen s work done ( through exhibitions, concerts, making music together or just sitting by the camp fire. Meanwhile, rooms free of political and ideological pressure are no longer urgently required; however, places have become rare where people can meet without commercial pressure, free of bureaucracy and institutionalism, free of nepotism and the exclusion which it produces. What should be easy ( to go somewhere in order to meet people and to work together ( has become difficult. The tightrope walk between, on the one hand, public activities in a monetary and functional sense, and the retreat into private life on the other, is very difficult, and it requires a lot of power and permanent efforts to tackle red tape and financial restrictions.Free spaces are less and less understood as common property, and are permanently being cut back. The idea of public property seems to have gone out of fashion, and places of common responsible work have become rare.Open Houses Network tries to create and protect such spaces. In this process, we do not want to be the drs, but be people who have a vision, who want to initiate something, but who also are aware of depending on the co-operation of others. We understand our projects and events as offers ( as offers to create space for commitment, for changes, for meetings.

TRAVAIL

The projects of Open Houses are based on sustainable principles. Therefore, the activities at Lohra Castle combine aspects of cultural heritage preservation and aspects of natural heritage preservation. The participants of the Workcamps carry out works in the green areas and the forests around the castle, restoration work and collaboration in renovation works.

LOGEMENT & NOURRITURE

All costs linked to the project are covered, including food, accommodation, insurance and transportation during the stay at the project. Travel costs to and from the camp place are not covered. Participants should organise their journey to and from the project place by themselves and on their own expenses. Furthermore, participants should bring their own pocket money.ACCOMMODATIONIn most of Open Houses camps the volunteers will live at the same places they also work on, what means that they live more or less on a building site. In most of the Heritage Volunteers Projects the accommodation is located in a certain distance to the working site. The accommodation is usually very simple; there are shared rooms with simple beds or mattresses at most of the places. Shower, toilet and kitchen are at the place, but sometimes not in the same building. The equipment is simple but fair. After work, when everybody wants to take a shower, there can be a limit of hot water.FOODThe meals will be prepared together as they are part of the community life, what means that every participant will be responsible for the meal at least once during its stay. So it would be very nice if the participants could bring typical recipes from home in order to introduce each other to the preparation of food from all over the world.

SITUATION

Lohra Castle is situated in the heart of Germany in Northern Thuringia. The castle, which is surrounded by a scenic hilly landscape, is located on the edge of a nature reserve area. Being one of the largest castles in Thuringia, the history of the castle Lohra begins in the Middle Age. The castle is more than 1,000 years old. Today, it includes twenty buildings from different times: medieval fortifications, remnants of a tower from the 11th century, a Romanesque chapel, a manor house from the Renaissance period as well as stables and granaries from the 19th and the early 20th centuries. The ensemble is situated in the centre of a beautiful forest. For years Lohra Castle was vacant. In the 1990s Open Houses started to restore the castle and to revive it by cultural activities. Since that time, a large number of Workcamps, Building Weeks, exhibitions, concerts and other activities with international participants took place in the castle.

The history of Open Houses dates back to the mid-1980s, when a group of young people began to restore actual disused village churches. The focus lies on restoration and public use of historical monuments, which allows a long-lasting and effective recovery of the buildings. Currently Open Houses has several historic buildings in its care. All of them are attractive ensembles which display centuries of history. But most of them stood vacant for a very long time and suffered serious structural damage. In accordance to the above described focus on heritage, European Heritage Volunteers, a branch of Open Houses, organises Heritage Volunteers Projects, some of them in the framework of the World Heritage Volunteers initiative. European Heritage Volunteers has been active in heritage-related volunteering for more than twenty years. Its objective is to establish links between the fields of heritage and volunteering by continuously working to foster a deeper understanding of heritage and volunteering among those active in either field, and by linking the two fields through practical hands-on projects and educational activities.

The project consists of two parts ( a practical working part which will last 6 hours per day and a study part, which takes place in the evenings and during weekends The project will focus on new forms of exploring and mediating the Jewish cemetery of Zittau as one of the last authentic sites of Jewish cultural heritage in the region. Using digital tools and methods of heritage interpretation, the participants will collaboratively create a virtual tour of the cemetery, providing information about the people, places, personal stories and historical events connected to it. The content of the virtual tour will afterwards be used by local educators to engage more and different people in the topic.In this project, methods of heritage interpretation shall be used to understand and interpret the Jewish cemetery in Zittau. The aim is to develop the historic site into a space where Jewish life, death, and heritage in the region can be comprehended in a relatable way, on-site as well as on-line. After an introduction to the relevant historical sources and materials, the participants will get basic training of working with heritage interpretation, interpretive planning, and interpretive media. They will work in small teams, each focusing on one specific aspect of the heritage site.The work will be accompanied by a cultural and educational program. The participants will visit other Jewish heritage sites in GErlitz in Germany, Liberec in Czechia and Sieniawka in Poland. They will learn about the cultural specifics of the border region of Germany, Poland, and Czechia. The participants would also have the opportunity to interact with locals, talk to them about their work and ask questions. There will also be an exchange with young members of the Jewish community Dresden on Jewish life in Germany today.

Shower, toilet and kitchen are at the place, but sometimes not in the same building. The equipment is simple but fair. After work, when everybody wants to take a shower, there can be a limit of hot water.FOODThe meals will be prepared together as they are part of the community life, what means that every participant will be responsible for the meal at least once during its stay.

SITUATION

Zittau is a small town with a beautiful historic centre, located in the easternmost part of Germany, in what is now the German-Polish-Czech border. Historically speaking, these borders are all relatively young, as they were established only after World War II, and the states bordering each other have only existed in their current form since 1990 (Federal Republic of Germany and Poland) resp. 1993 (Czechia). In the collective memory, the recentness of the current situation is still quite present, i.e. through family biographies marked by expulsion, forced displacement and exile.The European Heritage Volunteers Project will be dealing with a special aspect of these historical shifts and ruptures: the history of the Jewish people in the region. While records of Jewish life go back to the Middle ages, it was not until the 1871 that the Jews were granted civil rights in Zittau, such as the right to buy real estate or the right to permanent settlement, and in 1885 a Jewish community was officially founded. The cemetery was inaugurated in 1887, with the mayor and other town representatives present. This hints at the rapid integration of Jewish people into the Zittau society. In the following decades, the Jewish population grew from about 60 to almost 200 people.However, anti-Semitism was always a threat, with major outbursts already in the 1890s and its violent culmination in the extermination policy under the Nazis after 1933. More and more Jewish families left the city, seeking refuge in bigger cities or fleeing the country. Of those who stayed, only very few survived the Holocaust. Thus, only a handful of burials took place at the Zittau Jewish cemetery after 1933. The neoclassical mourning hall that had been built on the cemetery only 30 years earlier was demolished in the November pogroms of 1938. After the end of World War II, there was a short period of active remembrance, followed by decades of neglect and deliberate destruction of the Jewish cultural heritage.Even after 1990, the Jewish cemetery was repeatedly desecrated, the last act of vandalism being recorded in 2003. This event represented a wake-up call to the active citizens of Zittau, showing that something had to be done to protect the cemetery and prevent anti-Semitic attacks in the future.Since then, Hillersche Villa, which is a socio-cultural centre founded in the early 1990s, together with volunteers and the municipality, has been working on the documentation and restoration of the Jewish cemetery. Their aim is to enhance its visibility and to raise awareness of Zittaus Jewish history through guided tours and educational programs. In 2013 and 2016, they organised two archaeological excavations on the cemetery, with researchers and volunteers working together. These brought to light the foundations and pieces of decoration of the destroyed mourning hall. All these activities are coordinated with the Jewish community of Dresden, who is the owner of the cemetery since there is no Jewis

Nomadelfia is a community founded by Don Zeno Saltini (1900 i 1981) in 1948: since his youth, this priest aspired to live a concrete and incarnate faith in everyday life. He began by helping the orphans of his parish. Gradually, some families began to collaborate with him giving a family back to these abandoned children. In 1948, Fr Zeno and these families felt called by God to be the seed for a more fraternal and supportive society. It was no longer enough to heal the wounds of an unjust society. It was necessary to propose an alternative: thus Nomadelfia was born. The Nomadelfi share their life in family groups where 3 or 4 live together. Goods are shared and, having overcome the concept of ownership, there is no need for money to circulate. In work, there is no career and everyone is available to do any kind of work, in the knowledge that every activity has the same dignity. There is no unemployment because everyone has a role. The disabled and the elderly continue to work in proportion to their possibilities, so that no one feels useless. Families choose to be open to the needs of others and are willing to take in and educate children in need on an equal footing with their natural children. Each adult feels responsible not only for his own but for all the children of other families. Sobriety and mutual forgiveness are fundamental values. For the State, Nomadelfia is a civil association; for the Church, it was established as a parish in 1962 and recognized as a private association of the faithful in 1994. Nomadelfia is a direct democracy.

TRAVAIL

General agricultural work, simple building work and green maintenance.

LOGEMENT & NOURRITURE

Camp participants will stay (separately for men and women) in small 3-4 room flats with 3 beds and shared bathroom. Breakfast, lunch and dinner with Nomadelfia families.

SITUATION

BESOIN SPÉCIAL

Nomadelfia is a real proposal. For this reason it is essential that the experience of the volunteers is not limited to practical work, but that they have the possibility of an approach to the community life of this society. The style is one of family and sharing in the name of the Gospel. Modesty in dress is also required at work. Promiscuity is to be avoided among boys and girls, and serious and reserved behaviour is to be maintained. Respect for the environment is important.This project is composed of a volunteering team, supported by the European Solidarity Corps program of the European Union. Compared to the usual workcamp participation scheme, some main financial and administrative differences must be underlined.ATTENTION PLEASE: This project is open to volunteers between 18 and 30 years. It is open to all volunteers that fit the ESC criteria presented on the ESC webpage: https://europa.eu/youth/solidarity/mission_en – Volunteers do not have to pay any fee (no sending, nor participation fee) to attend the project- Volunteers need to enroll in the PASS, the European Solidarity Corps Portal; We will organize your matching in the portal with the volunteering project.- Volunteers will receive pocket money, calculated on basis of the rate of our country: 5euro/day, once they arrive on the project in Italy- Volunteers will receive a financial support for their travel, according to a maximum amount established in accordance with their travel distance and upon the presentation of original tickets.- Volunteers will have to complete a participation report, submitted online through the portal.

Open Houses ( rooms open for those who come along.Open Houses ( not empty buildings, but places with visible and invisible traces of history, places which have grown and decayed over the centuries, places which were shaped by those people who lived there long ago as well those who left only yesterday ( places which will be shaped by those who live there or who come as a guest.Open Houses ( rooms which want to be filled with dreams and ideas, with meetings and exchange, by people of different backgrounds, different cultures, different generations and different ideas and visions.The history of Open Houses Network dates back to the mid-1980s, when a group of young people started to restore village churches in East Germany in voluntary work to protect them from decay. The engagement for these buildings united people who enjoyed the freedom these activities provided and who filled these rooms with life again in ways which by far exceed the craftsmen s work done ( through exhibitions, concerts, making music together or just sitting by the camp fire. Meanwhile, rooms free of political and ideological pressure are no longer urgently required; however, places have become rare where people can meet without commercial pressure, free of bureaucracy and institutionalism, free of nepotism and the exclusion which it produces. What should be easy ( to go somewhere in order to meet people and to work together ( has become difficult. The tightrope walk between, on the one hand, public activities in a monetary and functional sense, and the retreat into private life on the other, is very difficult, and it requires a lot of power and permanent efforts to tackle red tape and financial restrictions.Free spaces are less and less understood as common property, and are permanently being cut back. The idea of public property seems to have gone out of fashion, and places of common responsible work have become rare.Open Houses Network tries to create and protect such spaces. In this process, we do not want to be the drs, but be people who have a vision, who want to initiate something, but who also are aware of depending on the co-operation of others. We understand our projects and events as offers ( as offers to create space for commitment, for changes, for meetings

TRAVAIL

The participants of this Workcamp will help in the conservation of the castle. Thus, the volunteers will do some works from repairing the small wooden bridge to restore the doors and windows. Another task will be to help in the restoration of the stone walls which are surrounding the ensemble. Additionally, the participants will clear up different parts of the ensemble and take care of the green area around by cutting grass and cleaning the ditch, which was previously part of the defensive system around the former water fortress.

SITUATION

Ollendorf is situated between Erfurt, capital of Thuringia, and Weimar. The small village is surrounded by a beautiful countryside. Ollendorf Water Castle was probably built in the 13th century as a protective fort at the via regia. The via regia was the most important medieval trading route which ran from Flanders via Frankfurt and Leipzig to Russia. In 1692 the castle had been destroyed by a fire and only the foundations could remain. The current manor house was built in 1694 in a simple rural baroque style, replacing the former castle. Following the decline of the via regia in the 19th century, the site was later used for agricultural purposes, and store houses and barns were built. During the last decades, due to long vacancy, the manor fell into disrepair. Since several years Open Houses is active at the Water Castle and could save it from falling apart. Many works have been done since then, both focusing on the restoration of the historical complex and the renaturation of the castles surroundings. Due to the young people from different countries, who have lived there and have taken part in its restoration during the last years, the castle changed into a place of creativity and open-mindedness. Ollendorf is a good place to start excursions to important historical and cultural places like Weimar and Erfurt which are not far from the village.

TRAVAIL

Art is often considered the process or product of deliberately arranging elements in a way that appeals to the senses or emotions. It encompasses a diverse range of human activities, creations and ways of expression, including music, literature, film, sculpture and paintings. Children of all ages love arts and crafts They love getting creative, messy and admiring their masterpieces when they have finished and the great thing with arts and crafts is that they are aiding their development in many other areas too.As kids manipulate a paintbrush, their fine motor skills improve. When children experiment with materials, they dabble in science. Most important perhaps, when kids feel good while they are creating, art helps boost self-confidence. This unrestricted exploration helps children form connections in their brain, it helps them learn and it is fun.

The Ferrara section of the Lipu was founded in 1985 and since the early 2000s has been located in the Giardino delle Capinere near the ancient Este walls. Since the beginning it has been involved in the shelter, care and subsequent release in Nature of wild animals found by citizens; equally fundamental activities are the ecological divulgation and environmental education, addressed to both children and adults, which take place inside the Centre itself, thanks to the help of irrecoverable specimens of autochthonous ornithological fauna. For Lipu, collaboration with other voluntary associations has always been vital so that the ecological message can spread as much as possible because we believe in the principle that those who love nature and its inhabitants cannot but love humanity and vice versa.

BESOIN SPÉCIAL

The volunteers who want to be involved in the Youth Volunteering Camp have to be committed with creative skills, be open-minded, willing to know, share activities and moments with people with disabilities and other participants. As the goals of the project are quite open and wide, it should involve volunteers who like art, creativity, performing arts and music. It is not obligated to have knowledge on performing arts (however it will be appreciated), the willing to be creative and the motivation in participating in artistic activities is more than enough. Last but not least, they should be open for the corporation with people with intellectual disability. We hope to see young people ready to enjoy perhaps one of the best summer of their lives, sharing great moments with people from all over the world We hope to see young people ready to enjoy perhaps one of the best summer of their lives, sharing great moments with people from all over the world
