THE MILKY WAY OBSERVATORY

  • The association La Voie LactEe works to discover astronomy and stars, bringing together fans of the sky and space. They have been proposing for 24 years to everyone to get closer to the stars and planets during observation sessions. Equiped for now with handable telescopes for their various interventions, they decided this year to strengthen their capacities by building the first domed observatory in the region. As an association of volunteers only, it is their passion and desire to share with as many people as possible that drives them. To find out more about their association, you can visit their website http://lvl.chenaud.free.fr and why not to help them to finance the creation of the observatory https://www.leetchi.com/c/observatoire-de-chenaud

Solidarites Jeunesses works alongside a number of partner organisations world-wide, exchanging volunteers and organising international solidarity projects. The association has been the French branch of Youth Action for Peace till 2009, a movement created after the First World War in order to reconcile people of different nationalities through a better mutual understanding. National Solidarites Jeunesses is a national youth organisation, recognised by the French Ministry of Youth and Sport. Our national headquarters are situated in Paris. We organise short and longer-term international youth volunteer workcamps and voluntary services, projects with people from disadvantaged areas, training sessions, and international solidarity projects. We also manage rural residential and community centres. Regional Solidaites Jeunesses is composed of 7 regional delegations: Ile-de-France, Franche-Comt�, Languedoc-Roussillon, PACA, Auvergne, Poitou-Charentes and Midi-Pyrenees. Moreover it cooperates with partners in the regions of Bretagne, Lorraine and with La Crois�e des Regards in the region PACA. Workcamps The international workcamp is a very important part in the action undertaken by Solidarites Jeunesses. It is prepared a long time in advance in the different regional offices and the National Secretariat. The international workcamp, open to volunteers of any age, is seen as a tool of local and personal development, tolerance and understanding between the different participants. Furthermore, we lay emphasis on the inclusion of people coming from disadvantaged areas. The workcamps promote the active participation of the local population.
