Descripción del proyecto
DESCRIPCIÖN:This short term EVS -project, Sticky Traditions in Metsäkartano, will take place in Metsäkartano Youth Centre from the 5th to the 25th of May 2014. This project will acquaint the international volunteers to the tarring traditions in Finland and take them through the experience by practise. The tarring traditions will show the youngsters the importance of surroundings aesthetics and ecological sustainability. The old buildings are a part of Metsäkartano's history and by using tarring as a method of maintaining, we'll treasure the surroundings by getting involved with the traditions.
By having volunteers from various European countries, we will have the opportunity to compare the craftsmanship and methods used in different countries in different times. As Metsäkartano is located in the middle of the vast woods, the surroundings will be authentic for this kind of experience. The volunteers will also stay in a wooden lodge, which will add a touch of originality into the project! The volunteers will help with the maintenance of Metsäkartano by eg. painting the buildings with tar and by doing other physical work. By this project the volunteers will learn to appreciate the traditional methods of work and the heritage of our ancestors. Volunteers will also participate in lectures and workshops held by an expert on tarring for a better understanding of the cultural history and
By this project the participating youngsters will also learn about the gifts that nature offers us: materials for eco-living, food etc. Sustainable development and environment education are things we all should be appreciate, no matter where we live. By participating in Sticky Traditions in Metsäkartano, the youngsters can share their stories about how we can all give our contribution to the world by doing small things and decisions. The project will be put in action with the staff of Metsäkartano and we also try to involve some of the local youth workshop youngsters.
So the project is mainly about physical work and it includes lots of TAR painting!!
