The project will take place in Kostanjevica na Krki, historical town on the eastern part of Slovenia. It is Slovenia’s smallest and one of the oldest towns, rich in history, art, culture and nature. From January to August 2016, 2 volunteers will gain competences on sustainable development, local food supply, conscious consuming, skill sharing and active citizenship. They will assimilate information from methods of good village practice (beekeeping, permaculture, organic farming, natural cosmetic, recycle and reuse) and educate local inhabitants about conscious organic production and consume. They will also assist in the activities aimed at children, i.e. bread baking workshops, cooking workshops, intercultural exchange and global learning, nature/ outdoor workshops. Other activities include organising documentary film evenings with discussion on sustainable topics; vegetable swap; taking part in the solidary purchase group; organising activities along the heritage trail; working with Roma and learning about their heritage; using camera and video to document activities. Volunteers will be able to gain access to the traditional ways of preserving food, processing food while learning bread baking, cheese making, wine producing, healing with herbs. They will also gain the opportunity to actively participate in farming households. Indoor activities include office work, setting up courses, setting timetables and rotas for the week; writing a blog, learn and use the basics of graphic design and video editing. Volunteers will be introduced to methodologies and tools, known as ’12 tools for transition’, that can help support the process of transition to more sustainable, environment-friendly and resilient communities. Other methods involve learning by doing (hands on experience), field research, discussion, best practice presentation, interactivity, communication, kinestetic experience, peer learning as well as integenerational/ intercultural dialogue.
