Bordeaux, an old farm has been transformed into a rustic gîte by an association which, under a yurt, welcomes groups of children, hikers and campers. The Rochard gîte, an international centre, has welcomed over 70 different nationalities. This place, in the middle of nature, invites to respect the environment and to a sustainable development approach.
Work:The programme is based on three main objectives linked to the Sustainable Development
-To co-construct, with young people, a toolbox to facilitate speaking out and visibility on the
subjects of eco-responsible practices;
-Raise awareness of existing solutions to slow down the effects of the ecological crisis;
-Exchange intercultural practices on sustainable development.
We hope that this programme will allow young people to feel involved and that they will acquire, through dialogue and activities, new knowledge but also new practices, on two levels: on a personal level, i.e. by developing more eco-responsible habits, but also on an interpersonal level, by creating tools that will allow them to raise awareness more easily with their entourage.

especially for lunch and dinner while respecting environmental values and local resources, as well as the culture of each and every one (hot and cold dishes as well as vegetarians and vegans will be prepared).
