PARTNER : The workcamp is organized by Liberi Sogni, a small non-profit organization that organizes, since 2006, social, cultural and environmental projects in the districts of Lecco, Bergamo and Monza e Brianza, in the region Lombardy. Liberi Sogni always considered the intercultural topic very important. Many people that work in the cooperative experimented directly with how important it is to promote solidarity and attention towards cultures, especially among young people. PARTNER : Since the year 2021 a new project has begun, Liberi Sogni bought a rural structure in the hill called Brianza Mountain (400 mt above sea level) named “Cascina Rapello”. This is an inclusive place where everyone can take action, schools, organized groups, families, children and everyone can take part in this new adventure. The main aims of the project are environmental education, sustainability of the food chain and awareness through the active engagement of young people in an international and natural environment. Through the experience in the woods and the social farm, we would like to achieve personal development, increase active citizenship in society, improve language competences, raise participants' awareness and understanding of other cultures and countries. .By joining this workcamp you will contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals: LifeOnLand-SDG15 and ClimateAction-SDG13.
