Environment & Inclusion "eco-design, wood working, gardening - Voluntary service in Itália

Participants Profile: We are looking for young Portuguese youngsters (18 to 30 years old) that are energetic people who are ready to work with migrants, young people and be interested in the crafts, wood working and sustainability.

The project...

In an old abandoned  building in the city of Catania, in Sicily, Italy with the project FIERi we built an Intercultural Factory of Eco-Sustainable Re-use. The project involved migrant men and women who are living in Catania. A cultural heritage that we want to interweave with our artisanal knowledge. We will begin with different workshops where one can learn how to repair and recycle various types of materials. We will teach old and innovative techniques to create beautiful and functional objects from materials that are no longer used.


 – Workshop construction from recycled materials (woodworking, design, eco jewellery)

 – Gardening

 – Arrangement of factory spaces

 – Natural agriculture.
