What Does Your Year of Travel Entail?
For all those eager to travel the world, contribute to the planet through socially responsible attitudes and actions and who aim to participate in social transformation, this is the “best job of the world”.
As António Dias, the head of World Life Experience affirms “the first edition, with already two months of travel and work done, is a success and a great life experience for the group of eleven participants.” He continues: “The group has been in six different cities in five countries, and worked on reforestation, permaculture projects geared toward environmental sustainability, participated in workshops with refugees and cooperated in reconstruction projects. As the participants interact with people from the places they go, they become aware of the social, environmental and cultural diversity that exists in the world”.
The total stay in each city will be for two weeks and will involve a program oriented towards social work, through integration with local organizations (NGOs), and a leisure component aimed at tourism and cultural activities.
