    Non formal education- Experiential learning bringing people work together and learning by doing methods and technique to build sustainable house;
    Social relationship creating moments of human and cultural exchanges.

    The main learning objectives of the train:

    O.1 The effectiveness of constructed wetland for household water wast treatment.
    Description : the trining aims to acquire knowledge and personal capability to mitigate the environmental impact by improving household wastewater treatment.
    Usually, household wastewater can contain contaminants that degrade water quality for such uses as drinking, stock watering, food preparation and cleaning. A properly installed and maintained system for treating and disposing of household wastewater will minimize the impact of that system on ground water and surface water.
    The training consist on building two evapotranspiration tanks in existing houses.
    O.2 Build together a new green building
    Description: the train aims to acquire practical knowledge on how to build a green house in a rural area recycling and use local materials.

    For 2021/2022 we would like to enhance the field of natural building starting with a "sustainable worksite” in which the volunteers will be involved in a realization of water waste treatment systems for existing houses and in the construction of a new natural house.
