This project focuses on action-awareness and environmental activism, and aims to show that the garbage we produce in our daily life can not only be reduced, but can also be reused, thus generating new business especially for people with fewer opportunities and /or social problems. We also want to empower youth developing their ideas and transforming them into real projects. Therefore with this project we will be combining: 1. Environmental (MAIN PROJECT): a. Precious Plastic machines which transform plastic waste into new and valuable objects. 2. Awareness and workshops a. Workshops for children with less opportunities and youth from the region. b. Awareness campaigns started by volunteers about any topic that they might consider relevant in the region. c. Erasmus+ and other European programs campaigns, info sessions and workshops. 3. Non-formal management a. Starting and managing a non-profit organisation. b. Writing and delivering projects based on non-formal education.

The accommodation will be in private rooms in a 3 bedroom shared apartment situated in Gandia and all the expenses in the house will be paid by the organisation (electricity, internet, water, gas). Each volunteer will receive a SIM card for their telephone and a bicycle to move around locally.

The volunteers will help to develop cultural activities and give support for the communication (Graphic design) and audiovisual streaming and archive, documenting everyday life, shows, projects, etc. We look for the contribution of three volunteers during 9 months, who will be supervised by the staff of the organization, will take part of the team exchanging ideas and collaborating to produce them. We hope this project will be a window that shows, from a local to an international level, the cultural wealth of the neighborhood as a tool for social change through independent cultural management
