Job Description

GREEN VILLAGE 

Green Villages are established in regions away from the big cities, and offer a pedagogy that is specially tailored for Youth living in rural communities.

A Green Village is an ecovillage built using natural and traditional building methods that respect the environment and aim at a circular economy. A Green Village is a home for young people and for the supervising team, and the infrastructures are made available to the local community.

Each month, the Youth organize activities designed to raise awareness within the community. Soon, all Green Villages will be equipped to organize events to raise awareness about environmental protection and the professional integration of young people.
