Dry Stone Wall Extravaganza 2.
The “Dry stone wall extravaganza 2” EVS project aims at promoting Archaeological site Colentum as valuable part of Europe’s cultural heritage. Project will take place in Murter (Murter Island, Croatia) during one-month period. The objective of the project is to improve knowledge and raise awareness about values of cultural/archaeological heritage as common European value and its potential in terms of sustainable development of rural communities. The fifteen young participants from Spain, Italy, Poland, Turkey and Bulgaria will help hosting organization in renewing dry stone walls surrounding the site.
Volunteers will use their creativity and the knowledge about history of Colentum they’ll get during this month to add content and improve Strategic Action Plan for development of Colentum. Volunteers will organize different activities to get local/regional community and visitors aware of a values and potentials of a cultural/archaeological value. Volunteers will benefit from the project in personal, professional, and social development; partner organizations (sending and hosting) will establish strong relations in civil sector. The aims of project activities are to encourage participation of young people in sustainable development, to motivate local/regional young people for active participation in order to ensure them working place (in community based local business) and to raise awareness about local resources that are still not recognized as economic development factors. We also want to present EVS and Erasmus Plus programme as an efficient tool for development of European common interest such as cultural heritage.
