Our Partnership's projects are in 4 different locations in Hungary offering volunteer opportunities for young people aged 18-30 in both urban and rural settlements, for 6 or 12 months.

All locations are connected to ecological living aiming to find solutions to a more sustainable future both on individual and community level.

Activities vary from to creating and maintaining permacultural gardens, organising community events, to teaching kids about eco-conscious lifestyle, English and German language and introducing interculturalism.

Do you want to be part of an eco-community in rural Hungary, experiencing ecological living, permaculture and natural building methods?

Do you prefer a buzzing capital, yet want to maintain and promote a green, healthy lifestyle?

Do you want your life have a higher meaning by introducing art, language and gardening to children?

All of them are a great adventure! Do you want to be part of it?

Here you have the opportunity to join, experience green living, share your eco-self and be part of the change that will make our future cleaner, more fair and ecologically conscious!
