OIKOS

WORKCAMPS


Oikos proposes a workcamp program in Rome, in our headquarter located in Spinaceto.

Oikos is a no-profit association founded in 1979.

International projects are only a part of all Oikos projects: our activity mainly deals with problems about conservation of forest resources, with the psychological field research in close connection with the evolution of social systems and with the world of youth.

Volunteers should  be motivated to work, having a healthy curiosity and a capacity to listen and learn. Moreover, a certain sense of responsibility and the ability of an autonomous way of life are required.
