Trinationale Workcamps in Frankreich

Eine Besonderheit im alljährlichen Workcampprogramm stellen die "bi- oder trinationalen" Workcamps in Frankreich dar. Dabei handelt es sich um Workcamps, die vom Deutsch-Französischen Jugendwerk (DFJW bzw. OFAJ in Frankreich) gefördert werden. Neben Freiwilligen aus Frankreich und Deutschland ist in den Projekten teilweise noch eine Gruppe aus einem dritten Land dabei -> daher trinational.

Neben spannenden Gruppenkonstellationen bieten diese Camps auch einen Fahrtkostenrückerstattung durch das DFJW (die genaue Höhe steht noch nicht fest).

International youth gathering (France – Germany - Ukraine)
Frankreich    SJ13    International youth gathering    04.07.-25.07.2015    SOCI/ART/CULT   13vols
AGE: 18 - 30
PROJECT: In today's society, we are more and more facing an economic and social model that strengthens inequalities, exclusion and the spirit of competition and comforts many people in their apprehensions, prejudices and representations of the others. It's up to us to propose alternatives and to organize meetings between people of different cultural and social backgrounds which promote an open mind, the understanding and acceptance of choices and conditions that are different from ours without any hierarchy. Reflecting on our own representations and opportunities to unmask them will be the topic of this gathering and treated through artistic expression, in the form of theatre and sculpture. The citizen party, organized every year by the Social Centre on the 13th of July for the local population, will be one occasion to perform. The geographical proximity of the Avignon Theatre Festival, held at the same time, will also reinforce this aspect of the project.
AIMS:
• Encourage reflection about cultural representations in their historical, social and current context. Develop mutual exchanges including topics like interculturalism, solidarity and civic engagement.
• Develop a critical mind and ways of exposing prejudices and mechanisms of prioritization.
• Find an artistic « translation » illustrating these mechanisms and getting people to think about their own representations.
• Participate in local life and contribute to a dynamic of the village.
ACCOMMODATION: The group will be hosted in the Social Center of Vergèze
LOCATION: Vergèze, a small town between Nîmes and Montpellier in the south of France.

Trinationales Workcamp zum Thema Frieden und Gedenkstaettenarbeit
Frankreich    CONCF-062    LANGOELAN    22.07.-12.08.2015    RENO/TEEN/STUDY   12vols
AGE: 15-17
PROJECT: Kergoët, in the village of Langoelan, is a very important place for WWII where six members of the “Resistance” died after a terrible battle on July 1st, 1944. Last year was the event’s 70th anniversary and hundreds of people came to honor the fighters. Today, the mayor would like to work on a remembrance project that would need technical intervention but also some work on the symbolic aspect of peace in order to make Kergoët from a place of contemplation to one of life and hope. This project will be in partnership with the neighboring towns of Mellionnec and Lescouët Gouarec.
WORK: You will work on the crystallization process of the ruins of one of the buildings that were burned down during the war. You will also install a panel explaining what happened here and showing photos of the “freedom fighters”.
1/ The sheepfold will need to be worked on in order to make it airy and to crystallized the ruins. Rather than build a new one, the goal is to enhance the place as it is today. The substructure of the building will be built about 50cm high in order to get an idea of its configuration.
2/ The work on remembrance still needs to be defined in agreement with the inhabitants. Indeed, they are the ones who carry this memory and the young locals will be able to offer a new perspective for a future of hope and peace, far away from the current traumatizing memories still associated with this place. The volunteers will help setting up a panel with photos of the victims, together with a text or poem giving a message of Peace.
ACCOMODATION AND FOOD: You will stay in two-persons tents (please bring your sleeping bag and mat) on a campsite, with meals under a marquee or in the municipal hall.
LOCATION AND LEISURE: Langoëlan is a very dynamic town of 411 inhabitants. It is located north of the Morbihan department, close to the Cotes d’Armor department where the neighboring towns of Mellionec and Lescouët Gouarec (partners of this project) are. Langoëlan has a very rich and incredible heritage from the Roman period and a typical Brittany landscape (the literal meaning of the town is “close to the wild heathland”). The artificial lake of Guerledan is close by. It will be exceptionally emptied up in 2015, thus making old houses, gardens and locks visible. In Brittany, you can have different types of weather in the same day! Make sure to bring warm clothes and shoes together with lighter ones and a raincoat. You should also bring gloves, work clothes, work shoes and a swimsuit. Nights can be chilly: bring a thick sleeping bag!
