Festival 15
Date du début: 1 mai 2015, Date de fin: 31 oct. 2015 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

This project was a short-term, 16 day group EVS to which we hosted 30 participants from six different countries. The activities took place at 2 Music Festivals in Yorkshire, UK ? Leeds festival; one of the biggest festivals in the country at which the capacity is 80,000 people, and Tribfest, also in Yorkshire, UK, with a smaller capacity of about 5,000. Volunteers worked work alongside the Green Messengers during the festivals ? a position that required them to oversee the recycling of drinks receptacles and encourage other campers to recycle their rubbish by dispensing refuse sacks around the public campsites and creating recycling points for campers to be able to separate their waste. Hundreds of tons of aluminium was recycled over the course of the project by our volunteers. After Leeds festival volunteers were involved in the salvaging of good quality camping equipment that was abandoned by other festival goers. The equipment was redistributed to local community groups, charities and local people in the days following the festival. One of the main themes for the project was environmental awareness and participants were surrounded by the green message both during the activities and at the training that they received at the start of the project. The underlying theme however was that of inclusion. The activities were designed so that language was not be a barrier to any of the participants, which opened the experience to anyone regardless of their education or background and was an effective method of empowering young people in a disadvantaged situation to come together in an international context to gain non-formal experiences which will hopefully help to shape their future by boosting self-confidence and social competence.
