Ecovolonterre is a Civic Service program allowing youth (16-25y) to commit (6-12 months) to missions of general interest. It is a response to expectations from youth as environment is now their priority N°1 & also from the territories willing to take concrete actions to fight against the decline in biodiversity. 3 objectives:

1/ Enable youth to commit to environment - Become aware of current ecological issues, attend >5 days of training to better understand environment, participate in various actions such as fauna & flora observation & protection, plantation, waste collection 

2/ Foster youth employability thanks to the skills developed during their Civic Service experience (Oral expression, respect for others, getting to know each other better, mastering the basics of citizenship)

3/ Strengthen impact of environmental associations by mobilising general public (Awareness-raising actions, nature workcamps).
