The German-French-Polish ewoca³ projekt “The Four Elements – Building blocks of living and survival, local and global” takes place in Lindlar and Cologne, from the 28th of June to the 12th of July 2015.
This project is about workshops and group activities, but also about meeting new people from different countries (France, Germany, Poland) and to get to know the cultures of the different countries.
Together with the participants from the different countries, we work on building raised beds, insect hotels and solar showers. The workshops take place at the Don-Bosco-Club in Cologne Mulheim.
Group activities take place in Lindlar and Cologne.
A quote from Saski, 17 years, from Cologne:
When I arrived in Lindlar, I just thought: “What a boring small village…”. I was tired and wanted to lie down in my room. In the evening all of us were sitting in a circle in order to get to know one another. We got an exercise to communicate with our hand and feet. Later, after we knew each other a little better, we communicated in French, Polish and German, which we learned together with the team members. The following days were quite interesting, we did a lot of laughing and playing with the other participants.
A quote from Celina, 17 years, from Cologne:
This is my first time at an ewoca³ project. When I arrived here in Lindlar and saw and heard the participants from the other countries (France, Poland) I wasn’t able to understand them, and thought by myself, how should I ever communicate with them. But after a few days, we understood the French and the Polish very well and we laughed a lot and played together.
We are looking forward to the next days, waiting for us!!!
