Approximate Location: Kosjeric is a small town in the western part of Serbia (120 km south from Belgrade), well known for its beautiful nature. Thanks to its natural features and well organized authentic rural tourist households, Kosjeric is one the leading destinations of rural tourism in Serbia. Main agricultural activities of Kosjeric are cattle-breeding and fruit production, so the whole area is abundant in fruit orchards of extraordinary quality, around which livestock enjoy the freedom to roam in the pastures.
Notes: The camp was deliberately set outside the city of Belgrade in order to make a smaller local community benefit from international inputs, but also to give a chance to international participants to explore the capacities of a Serbian inner city and its surrounding natural beauties.
