Building Walls – Breaking Walls Ticino 2018

29 April – 7 May 2018, Mergoscia TI / Switzerland

Young adults from Switzerland, Ireland and Northern Ireland, Israel and Palestine have built together a dry stonewall in the mountins in canton Ticino. They explored conflicts and challenges around borders and walls in the different countries, shared cultural life, cooked together and experienced Swiss cultural heritage through building a stonewall in the mountains.

Our association ran the “Building Walls – Breaking Walls” project for the first time in the Italian part of Switzerland – in the lovely ecovillage of Campo Cortoi, above the town of Mergoscia. A cooperation with our partners Pro Mergoscia and Urs Nüesch Waldbau und Landschaftspflege
