SAINT-CAPRAIS - THE MONTH OF THE ENVIRONMENT

  • Saint Caprais de Bordeaux is a town located in the department of Gironde, near the Garonne, located 15 km from Bordeaux and less than an hour from the dune Pilat. The town declared the month of May an environmental month and has been organizing events around this subject. You will be working in a project linked to this theme.
  • The project involves the construction of eco-friendly elements such as compost bins, a bicycle shelter and wooden furniture. One of the goals is to invite the local community to discover or rediscover simple technical means more favorable to the environment.In this open space several different workshops as well as educational and experimental assistance concerning environmental subjects will take place. Besides participating in these workshops, you will be required to promote these events in schools and the media library with the help of other local partners.
  • You will be accommodated in a tent with a kitchen space and a common room. You will have to contribute to collective tasks such as cleaning and preparing food. The budget will be allocated to the group leader and you will participate in the preparation of meals using healthy and local products of high quality.
  • Saint-Caprais-de-Bordeaux is a commune in the south-west of France, located in the department of Gironde, in the region of New Aquitaine. This region is particularly known for its vineyards. Surrounded by castles and wine cellars, this village is located less than an hour away from the ocean and 15 minutes away from Bordeaux.
  • The region offers a pleasant climate, which is why the month of May should be quite mild. Anyhow, plan to bring with you working clothes and rainwear. Remember to bring a sleeping bag.


Concordia is a French national non-governmental and non-profit making organisation, founded in 1950 by English, German and French youngsters. Their aim was to enhance the values of tolerance and peace after the 2nd world war by organising international workcamps of young volunteers.

The main objectives of Concordia are the following:
Education i-e helping young people to grow up by acquisition of collective life.
Culture i-e favouring the youth exchanges on an international level, always emphasizing the values of peace, friendship and mutual respect.
Social i-e taking part in concrete actions of solidarity, as well as supporting a civic attitude
Social economy i-e contributing to realisation of local development, in favour of the environment, patrimony, tourism and socio-educational animation.

Workcamps are a perfect tool to reach these goals:
Participating in a workcamp means working voluntarily during three weeks at a project of a common utility, such as environment, archaeology, culture, patrimony. It is a form of informal education, but also an opportunity to discover a new region and its inhabitants. The participants get to know the real life of a small community, as well as the culture and customs of other volunteers, who come from all around the world. Every year Concordia gives the opportunity to more than 1000 French youths to get involved in its partner projects abroad and hosts around 1200 foreign volunteers on its own workcamps in France.

Concordia is a member of:
Three major international networks which support voluntary service:
The Alliance of European Voluntary Service Organisations which is a network of 30 national organisations in 20 countries and CCIVS (Co-ordinating Committee for International Voluntary Service) which is an organisation founded under the aegis of UNESCO in 1948 and coordinates about 300 organisations worldwide.
- The National Association COTRAVAUX (Co-ordination of French Voluntary Work organisations).
- AVSO (Association of Voluntary Service Association) a European network with the goal of improving European voluntary service.
The other activities of the association continue throughout the year with weekend or short holiday workcamps, mid and long term voluntary service, integration of people with difficulties, study and activity groups (North-South, International), sending and hosting volunteers of European Voluntary Service. Concordia also organises various trainings throughout the year. Those who wish to be even more involved in Concordia’s activities can be elected at the management committee; Concordia is a democratic organisation, led by dynamic and motivated volunteers as well as young people, and supported by paid staff. Today the management committee counts 15 members, there are 1800 subscribers, 25 employees and 200 activity leaders.
The Paris head office supports the eight regional offices activities i-e the Alps, Auvergne, Aquitaine, Normandy, Picardy, South-Southwest, Ile-de-France et Breatagne.

Concordia has the approval of the French Ministry of Youth and Sport and the Ministry of the Environment.
