~ The never-ending summer 🌳🌡
🔸 This summer was way different than the usual ones because… Ελπιδοχώρι / Hopeland happened
🔸 Restarting the offline (youth) work after 15 months
🔸 Hosting 3 eco-volunteering teams in the frame of European Solidarity Corps that really shifted and upgraded the vibes of Hopeland forever.
🔸 Executing 2 covid-postponed Erasmus+ Youth Exchanges with a common element the disconnection from technologies.
🔸 Hosting individuals, groups, students and other NGOs offering to the them the off-grid experience for a while.
🔸 Making work with colleagues and friends to a joyful ride that actually doesn’t feel like work was magical.
🔸 Unexpectedly acquiring skills that I would have never imagined or even wished (eg. woodwork, permaculture, eco-building, water treatment, heavy machinery, renewable energies etc)
🔸 Living the village life for the first time in my life and connecting with locals in such a pure and human way.

Sustainability is not a goal but a never-ending process.
