  • The Monleras international workcamps have been taking place for more than 15 years and their development and working has been really satisfactory. In these camps there have been young volunteers from many different european, asian and american countries, apart from young volunteers from every Autonomous Community from Spain. During the last year, the main activity has been focused on the so-called -the land of the games-.
  • The main task will consist of finishing a traditional metal workshop. Traditional bioconstruction techniques will be applied at the finish. Additionally, a pair of bellows will be restored as well as other ancient tolos to make the metal workshop work with educational aims.Rebuilding of the former spaces for games built in previous years. The damaged elements by weather conditions and the passing of time, such as the labyrinth or the game of the goose, will be rebuilt.Bio-construction criteria, traditional techiniques and eco-efficient techonology will be used in every construction.

SVI is the Spanish association which represents the Spanish workcamps managed by the Autonomous Regions (except those in Catalonia). We are under the Institute of Youth (Injuve).

Injuve, an Autonomous Department of the Ministry of Health, Social Policy and Equality, has, for some years now, been promoting specific programmes which are aimed at increasing and favouring different travel possibilities for young people. This enables those under 30 years of age to become aware of other realities, visit other places and have access to other cultures.

Included among these programmes is one known as International Voluntary Service (SVI), which deals only with workcamps. These are aimed at youth between 18 and 26 years old and their main objectives are:

- To encourage conduct that will favour the exchange of ideas and young people’s global development. This is achieved by volunteering and from the contributions made by youth from their own experience. This strengthens intercultural learning processes, personal development and the reinforcement of democratic values.

- To integrate experiences, personal knowledge and the global development of youth in the carrying out of an activity, within the framework of voluntary service.
The Youth Institute co-ordinates the exchange of places for young Spaniards wanting to volunteer in foreign workcamps and foreigners wanting to volunteer in Spanish workcamps. The Spanish workcamps are managed by the Autonomous Regions.
