h) Share activities and experiences of parents, mothers and children through natural parenting and alternative education.


The Autumn Summer Activity (A2) will take place between June 11 and December 22, 2019, and will be comprised of one participant from Italy and another from Poland.

The team of coordinators will make the proposals for the tasks and provide the necessary training for their development, trying to involve the volunteer, inviting him to gradually assume more responsibilities and commitments, as their interest and abilities increase. They will take into account their ideas based on their previous experience and knowledge, as well as collect and give space to contribute their creativity, being able to share their knowledge by organizing activities.

The dialogue will include suggestions for volunteering tasks day by day, and leadership will be encouraged in those tasks in which the volunteer has previously acquired experience, supporting him to guide his colleagues.
