CPI16 – 31. juuli – 12. august
CPI17 – 10. august – 22. august
BACKGROUND: The work camp is organized with ACARBIO (Associazione Costiera Amalfitana Riserva Biosfera) in collaboration with the local municipality of Minori. ACARBIO is an NGO engaged in the candidature of the Amalfi Coast as Biosphere Reserve within the MAB-UNESCO programme. Its activities focus on the conservation and safeguard of the natural and historical-cultural heritage of the Amalfi Coast, by promoting any kind of sustainable development with projects regarding the environment, biodiversity, tourism, local tradition, mobility, green energy. Among the many activities of the organization, international work camps are becoming more and more important. In the past 3 years ACARBIO organized 14 work camps about cleaning of green areas, the beach, workshops for kids on recycling and up-cycling, building natural houses, etc.. These projects were organized under the name of Make it Green and Make it Blue. As ACARBIO has worked these years promoting a more sustainable approach towards Mother Nature, we believe this project represents an opportunity to raise awareness about environmental protection at local level, and at the same time promoting volunteering, international cooperation and the involvement of youth all over the world. More information about our previous Make it Blue work camps can be found here https://www.facebook.com/MakeitBlueAcarbio/ (pictures and videos)
