Dry stone wall extravaganza 3.
EVS “Dry stone wall extravaganza 3” project aims at promoting Archaeological site Colentum as a valuable part of Europe’s cultural heritage. The project will take place in Murter (Murter Island, Croatia) during the one month. The objective of the project is to improve knowledge and raise awareness about the 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 to host organization in renewing dry stone walls surrounding the site.
Volunteers will use their creativity and the knowledge about the 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 the 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 the civil sector. The aims of project activities are to encourage the 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 the EVS and Erasmus Plus programme as an efficient tool for the development of European common interest such as cultural heritage.
