Description:

Otesha 2014 cycle tour applications are open!

This summer, Otesha are once again taking to the roads on another epic cycle tour. This year we’re headed to the beautiful coast of Wales.

On your cycle journey through this gorgeous landscape you’ll also be running workshops with schools and community groups, sourcing local

food and cooking up amazing veggie meals, learning loads about sustainable energy and living as part of a unique community. There is

guaranteed adventure, and fresh air and laughter in abundance. If this intrigues you, or you are interested in applying, we’d love to hear

from you! We're after 10-12 volunteers including two Liaision Officers to help organise the tour.

Our popular 3-week food tours are reinventing themselves with a new theme for 2014 – energy! Fracking, fuel poverty, community wind turbines and solar projects, political debates, transport, and climate change – the list goes on – it’s a pretty hot topic.You’ll be delivering sustainability workshops in schools and communities, enjoying workshares at exciting community projects and learning all about energy through diverse visits and learning exchanges.

By delivering our workshops you’ll help children explore how the choices they make, actions they take and things they buy affect people on the other side of the world and the planet itself. We take a colourful, positive, creative approach, helping them discover that their lives can be powerful forces for positive change in the world. You’ll be looking at things like fair trade and poverty wages, how much water it takes to make our food (and why it matters), why local food should be supported and how to get growing your own grub. By giving empowering, hands-on education – you won’t just be raising awareness but working with children and schools to put together plans for real, practical changes.
