On 2 and 3 March 2012, RECREATURA arts&culture, organized the first workshop within the ALDA project “VIT” concerning “Volunteering in times of crisis”.
Spain is among the countries which have been most affected by the current economic crisis with an unemployment rate rising to more than 20%, among young people even more than 40%.

During the conference more than 100 participants discussed the effects of the crisis on active citizenship and volunteering in plenum or in one of the five working groups concerning gender issues, immigrant groups, youth issues/education, the social media or urban policies. Numerous experts and representatives of civil society organisations from both Spain and other countries affected by the crisis (Portugal, UK, Italy among others) were present. Visits to current urban projects, two exhibitions and a public breakfast in cooperation with breakfast with pedestrians (”Desayuno con Viandantes”) rounded off the agenda.
RECREATURA is very happy with the outcome of the event and is currently already planning some follow-up cooperation activities.
Further details of the event including the presentations of the speakers are available on the RECREATURA website
