Description: This is an intercultural mountain and nature experience for young adults from Switzerland, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Israel and Palestine. For 8 days we will learn from professional staff how to build traditional stonewalls in the mountains. You will experience the authentic and basic mountain life in the Romansh part of Switzerland and contribute with your work to the local community and environment. In the same time, we will talk about borders and walls between the cultures and how to overcome them.
Type of Work: Around 5 days of the activity will be reserved for learning to work with stones and building the wall by hand.
Study Theme: Together with our friends from Ireland, Northern Ireland, Israel and Palestine we will exchange, discuss and present the intercultural challenges and both visible and invisible borders between the cultures in different countries.
Accommodation: Our venue in Tschierv has 4 rooms with 6 beds in each one. There are toilets and showers for men and women as well as a kitchen and a dining room. The house is in around 15 minutes from the next bus station. The house has electricity but no WI-FI. There is a kitchen team, but they will be supported every day by 4 participants (1 per country). Each day a new team will be responsible for cooking and cleaning.
Language: Local languages are Romansch and Swiss German.
Requirements: Average fitness-level
Further notes: On one of the days we will visit the famous UNSESCO town Müstair as well as the Umrail passage mountain. Due to sponsorship restrictions in this workcamp for the volunteers from Switzerland it is relevant that you have your residency in Switzerland - otherwise you are not eligible (in that case chose another workcamp without restrictions as this is usually the case in SCI workcamps).
