The working hours are from Monday to Friday divided as follows: 3 hours in the morning and 2,5 hours in the afternoon. There are no special skills required. By participating to this project you contribute to protecting the local cultural heritage (UN SDG 11).

Location and leisure

Lukovistia is a village close to Rimavska Sobota in southern Slovakia. The village is the birthplace of Slovak writer Ivan Krasko. The house where he was born in is now used as a small museum. In Lukovistia there is a baroque church with a painted ceiling from 1794. Close to je village, there is Teply vrch, known for the warmest geothermal lake in Slovakia (27 °C, 80 F). There will be some free time activities planned by leaders of camp such as games, workshops, trips.

The workcamp will be visited by INEX Messenger who will organize a workshop focused on current events in Europe. The volunteers will prepare the "Feast of cultures" - an international food evening, and will join the “volunteering footprint” workshop. Our camps will follow the rules of the Sustainability campaign.
