Zhrnutie o čom EDS je a čo Natália robí:
Our mission is to empower ourselves and our visitors in self sustainability. Solving challenges in small scale food production. Exploring simple solutions for food, shelter, warmth, water and sewer. Basically “ruralisation” with a simple sustainable lifestyle in the context of the challenges that a globalized civilization poses. Specifically energy issues, ecology issues, and an unsustainable economy based on fossil fuel and debt. In light of these challenging times ahead we would like to show young people how they can become more independent.
“Don´t wait for someone to solve your needs or give you a job. Find ways on how to contribute to society. Become a producer of value.”
The intention with this short EVS is to give the volunteers an opportunity to try the place/host and maybe make the choice to return for a longer future EVS, at the host or in a similar organization. We intend to link this project to a future application with the same partners that is focused on a long term EVS.
We hope they leave “the farm” inspired and having understood the basic challenges of self-sustainability.
The intention with this short EVS is to give the volunteers an opportunity to try the place/host and maybe make the choice to return for a longer future EVS, at the host or in a similar organization.
We will harvest, conserve food, prepare soil, tend animals. Work in the forest. Work with clay and wood. We will discuss, we will enjoy nature. The participants will be taught the role of water and nutrition in food production, as well as the aspect of seasons and weather and climate.
We feel that our concept evolving around a farm where project participants “live, work and play” on the same location is quite unique and leads to positive impact on a personal level. Our day-to-day activities in the community benefits the individual as well as the host and their network. We aim at producing self-confidence and inspire our participants to take responsibility for their own learning and embrace the idea of life-long-learning. Theme is employability and entrepreneurship.
The idea with this short EVS is:
– Give participants a chance to “get a away” for some time and get a new perspective.
– To give participants a chance to try rural, community life and the special activities of Hästekasen.
– Be in a group and feel confirmed, respected, seen – usually by having a meaningful role. Identity shaping.
– Learn something new and grow as a person.
– Create something visible or clear and feel pride.
– To have fun and hang out with people of the same age, including romantic aspirations.
Our activities are related to nature, we live on the countryside. The EVS will start with 2-3 days of: looking around, getting to know people, building a team, absorbing the cultural differences. All volunteers will be guided through action plans for several possible emergency situations such as: personal injury, fire, flooding, weather, electricity problems. All EVS starts with filling in a “choice of activities sheet” where each volunteer grade their interest in different tasks. Since the short EVS is short, we will let everyone try everything, and only at the later half maybe personalize and let different group constellations go deeper in any specific activity.
