Goal of the event: 
With this project, ESN Coimbra aims to recover a space that will be used to implement an Outdoor Educational Program in a natural environment, being developed as a complement to formal education for children between 3 and 10 years old.
Short description of the event: 
International students were asked to help in the recover of a space for children of Coimbra.
The event began on 21 October in the ESEC with an opening ceremony. That day was given to the volunteers a training workshop for the house rehabilitation.
On 22, 23, 24, 29 and 30 October and 6 and 7 November they worked in the house. The surroundings of the house (that belongs to ICNF - Institute for the Conservation of Nature and Forest) were cleaned and the house interior was painted.
On November 7 there was a lunch with the volunteers that were invited to bring a typical dish from their country.
With this project we aim that the internacional students studying for a period of time in Coimbra leaved their mark here in the city that welcomed them.
