In this amazing 14 days workshop in our food forest in the South of Peloponnese we will unite people from all over Europe that want to learn about sustainable building, critical construction, social building principles and participatory design in the framework of an Erasmus+ Mobility of Youth Workers and we are looking for partners to send us participants.
Goal of the youth worker training will be to assess the current stage of the existing infrastructure and the needs of the community space that is at the same time functioning as an interactive participatory all day all ages school.
The participants will, through the guidance of the four extremely skilled mentors coming together from all over Europe, assess and analyze the structures and the space and figure out the needs of the school. They will dive deep into the theory of urbanism and the philosophy of space and the interrelations of building, structures and how they influence the behaviour of the people using the space. Furthermore, they will learn how to cover the needs and create healthy elements in harmony with the space and the desired outcome with ecological methods. Particular emphasis will be put on upcycling materials in order to combat problems of waste and the use of materials that are innovative in construction and architecture like the use of mycelium as an insulation.
But also the use of traditional materials will be examined and local resources will be engaged. The aim is to train people to broaden their scope and think of innovative solutions to widespread problems.
The training is guided by the amazing team from critical concrete, a non-profit organisation from Portugal, that focuses on sustainable construction while engaging innovative materials while involving young people, students and residence in a participatory design process with further implementation. The mentoring team will consist of a group of skilled mentors from all over Europe working in different organisations with a focus on sustainable building, participatory design and social architecture brought together by Samuel Kalika, artist, designer, founder and director of critical concrete. This training is co-funded by the European union in the frameworks of the Erasmus+ programme. It is an Erasmus+ monility of youth workers training.
