Volunteering project about Environment and Social Teamwork in Greece ( Fully Funded )

About the Project

"Building Resilience through Social Teamwork" is a European Solidarity Corps team volunteering project for 15 international participants in the activities of natural building, regenerative farming, community living, solidarity, team building and event planning.

This approach aims to provide the participants with theoretical and practical tools to introduce ecological regenerative actions in everyday life, in the small habits that in the long term create a great change. Our goal is to leave lasting imprints on communities, by educating people in building and farming in ways that are beneficial for both themselves and the ecosystem.


The Social cooperative “ COB eco-project ” is the organizer of this European Solidarity Corps Team Volunteering project and has applied for funds for the implementation of this, therefore the activity is co-funded by the European Union. This money covers food & lodging, travel costs, coordination fees and organization costs.
