Project: This project was born thanks to the collaboration between the Town of Agordo and the associations CAI (Italian Alpine Club) and Dolomites Heart, that take care of the maintenance of mountain paths. The purpose of this project is the maintenance of the paths in order to allow bike excursionist and hikers to use well-kept and clean paths. This kind of maintenance is increasingly neglected, and lately carried on mostly by groups of local volunteers. Hence the birth of the idea of bringing international volunteers to cooperate in doing so. Besides, we hope that hosting volunteers from all over the world would help us to create a climate of cultural understanding between the volunteers and the local community.
Work: Paths maintenance in order to make the paths well-visible and practicable. Removal of stones and branches. Removal of potholes and cutting grass and shrubs. It’s also necessary removal rubbish and filth. Planned hours of work: 3-4 hours/day probably in the mornings per 5 days/week. Volunteers should have a predisposition to walk and work on mountain paths and a correct environmental education. Volunteers are also expected to make an effort to interact with local community.
Accommodation and food: the volunteers are expected to cook the meals themselves. Food issues: getting vegetarian food is not difficult. Accommodation: in the municipal gym. Bunk beds in a shared male/female room. The structure has showers and toilet services. There is kitchen and living area. The volunteers are expected to do the cleaning themselves.
Location: the camp base is the town of Agordo, located about 100 Km north of Venice, frequently referred as the “Heart of Dolomities”, is actually one of the main access point to the Dolomites mountain range (UNESCO World heritage site). It’s a small quiet town, which economy is based on eyewear industry.
