Yurt Building at Lake Constance (Lellwangen)
Description: The aim of the non-profit association ‘Connection Culture’ (Verbindungskultur e.V.) is to build a charitable place for intercultural learn experiences, where regenerative ways of living and management should be explored and practiced in a creative way of togetherness. With the construction of a yurt we want to create a comfortable, heatable, room that enables us to organize more events also in the colder season. In addition to the construction itself, we would like to organize the Workcamp in such a way that close social relationships can arise within our team of volunteers and beyond, promoting peace also on an international level, according to the objective of our association. Moreover, this enables all participants to experience the yurt building as an enriching collective experience.
