Fair of Solidarity Economy
Description: Organized by XES (Catalonian Network of Solidarity Economy), the aim of this workcamp is to promote and teach about Solidarity Economy, an alternative, strongly cooperative, economy in service of people. This workcamp is divided in two stages: the Esperanzah Festival of Solidarity Economy and FESC, Fair of Solidarity Econonomy of Catalonia.
Esperanzah Festival has been an event developed for the last 7 years. It is a bridge between music and social mobilisation; a sample of viable alternatives for human development, hoping to move from reflection to action on how to make a better world. FESC is a fair that will celebrate its 5th anniversary this year, and which aims to show, in a same space, a good number of business projects relying on economic values different from capitalism.
Type of Work: Volunteers will help in tasks related to preparations and logistics for both events: assembling and dismantling of stands and functional infrastructure, distribution of promotional materials, attention and information to visitors, other tasks helping the organization and, occasionally, activities with children and youngsters.
Study Theme: Solidarity Economy. Getting to know transformational projects that promote an alternative economy, its philosophy, and its practices.
Accommodation: Volunteers will sleep in a hostel provided by the organization during the events. However, during Esperanzah, participants will sleep in tents (also provided by organization) near the festival site.
Language: Basic knowledge of Spanish is highly recommended and very helpful in communicating with local volunteers and getting to know best on the topic of the events (Solidarity Economy).
Requirements: Sleeping bag
Approximate Location: Barcelona and the near municipality of El Prat del Llobregat
Notes: You can get an idea of the festivals visiting their webpages, http://www.esperanzah.es/ and http://www.firaesc.org/
There is the possibility of getting engaged in parallel activities to both events regarding Solidarity Economy, according to interests of the volunteers.
Yes, it is in Barcelona, but please don't apply if it only makes you think about sangria and discoballs! Volunteering is a serious commitment and it needs to be taken as such.
