Join the workcamp at ”La CITE s’invente” In the city of Liège and help this educational organisation to promote sustainable development through their eco-centre! Volunteers will contribute to the improvement of the outdoor facilities of the eco-centre and help with the organisation of a small festival.


”La CITE s’invente” is a non-profit educational organisation for sustainable development. Its mission is to raise awareness about environmental issues and to promote sustainable ways of life. The main objective of the organisation is to build and design an eco-centre for pedagogical purposes in the hillside (coteaux) of the Citadel of Liège. An eco-centre is a multi-purpose facility dedicated to demonstration of innovations and knowledge transfers for environment protection and sustainable development.


The main objective of the workcamp will be to help improving the outdoor and indoor facilities of the eco-centre and support the organisation of the festival “Ecoteau” which promotes the activities of the eco- centre and other local initiatives.

The eco-centre is located in the Saint-Léonard area of Liège, at the foot of the hillside of the Citadel. Liège is the biggest city of Wallonia and the third city of Belgium after Brussels and Antwerp.
