The «Pavillon» is a training and information center to raise awareness among people to save energy and to be more sustainable in their daily life and in a interactive way. The Pavillon is located in the countryside and is adressed to a large audience (individuals, schools, professionals etc). The Pavillon organises training information, interactive displays and educational workshops about house construction and renewable energy sector. Since the opening in 2010, the Pavillon has received 37 000 visitors.
The Pavillon is managed by the Manche departement (local authority).
According to your talents and desires, you can help the team for :
– animation and organisation of educational workshops for school groups (science activities and experiments, educational games…) and profesionnals events / activities (house construction and renovation)
– get involved in other events on sustainable development in connection with the Manche departement.
Please note that the activity and accomodation are not in the same place: the activity place (The Pavillon) is located in the countryside in a small village but the volunteer will stay in a hostel for young workers in Saint-Lô city (15km from the Pavillon).
You will have your own sleeping room. Meals are served in the cafeteria of the hostel or you can use the kicthen to cook. You will have a car to ride at the Pavillon during the week and bus tickets to move in the city and discover the region.
