Health Common Good | ESC Volunteering team in Greece (Fully Funded)

A wonderful opportunity for 24 youth from all over Europe to live one month in a camping village in southern Greece focusing on sustainability and co-create your dream community. This opportunity is an European Solidarity Corps  team volunteering project organised by Hopeland organisation and co-funded by the European Union. 

About Hopeland

Hopeland is an educational eco community, located in a rural remote area in the south part of Greece. The venture is built with lots of love and (mainly) with natural materials from volunteers, visitors and guests who visited the place the last 10 years with a vision to create a place where sustainability meets tradition, culture and personal development. 

About the Project

Health Common Good was created with the intention to strengthen the sense of solidarity and active citizenship of young people in Europe, while bringing awareness on health and wellbeing.

As a volunteer, you'll organise interventions to help those most affected by COVID-19, interact with the rural, local community, learn about health-related topics and be part of a movement that creates a healthier, happier, and more connected society. You'll also engage in hands-on activities as part and a member of an eco community. It can be cooking, maintaining the gardens, keeping in a good condition the infrastructure and facilities of the estate, or taking care of the animals.
