We have 4 wonderful young Europeans arriving in September for a year-long internship programme - and had so many applicants (65!) who are such interesting people ... that we didn't want to send out the 'sorry but ...' letters without also putting out clearly all the other opportunites we're offering. So here they are, summarized:
After putting out the call for the EVS programme "Integral Permaculture in the Canary Islands" in our last newsletter at the beginning of July, we received more than 60 applications, most of them from very interesting-sounding people! Which made it very difficult to choose just 4 for the programme...
the 8thLife EcoVillage project in the Canary Islands.
Ideal for all those who seek to clarify their path towards sustainability & wish to acquire the most important skills required for this.
See www.media.8thlife.org for full details and how to apply if interested.
This is the banner we made for PeDreTea2 this time,
We already have some great applicants, and have yet to put out the news on the main social news channnels! Enrollment has started but will only end when we have a group of people deciding together when to come live on site (dates flexible).
and we hope to put photos of the other members of this team which we'll gather during the next months.
But we did it, even though it was sad for us to have to let some people go ... and now we have a great team of young people getting to know each other and us via skype conference: 2 from Poland, 1 from Sweden and 1 from Turkey.
Look out for news about how that project goes in future newsletters!
Seeing all the great applicants for this programme, made us hurry up a little more to finish putting out the other ideas we've had from time about people we could help a lot whilst they help us a lot, in fulfilling some of our dreams:
You don't require any previous experience, especially if you have a strong interest in these areas.
See the news in our Volunteers page, "Three New Volunteer Positions" for more details.
See http://en.ecoescuelas.net/projects/8thlife for more information.
We tend to select people who already have shown an active interest in Integral Permaculture, so please note that the Academy offers also free mini courses online, which you can study anywhere, in your spare time.
For future news from 8thLife, please note we have facebook group where you can see latest news but also comment, ask questions, etc.
