Iberian Collective


    1. What

A Collective is a time and space bound group of people choosing to work non profit on the same cause they believe in, like hospitality (exchange) or contributing in helping for any other reason.

In short, we will rent a space for volunteer work on Trustroots.

    1. Why

Trustroots has been around for a while now, and the Community is growing nicely with amazing people. This is the reason Trustroots needs some more love and help energy to keep moving on. Now it’s time to accelerate things a bit.

Trustroots is reaching out for YOU.

    1. When

We are aiming to start in October, and keep it going till at least December 2018. In other words, TR Autumn ’18 Collective.

    1. Who

- Kasper, Oct-Dec, TR volunteer coordinator (tr profile)[1] [github](https://github.com/guaka/) - Carlos - *add yourself*


    1. Where

We’re aiming for the South of Portugal, Algarve, or the West Andalusia region of Spain, near the frontier.

Our first choices are either the beach of La Antilla or the beach or El Portil, in South West of Spain., but open for ideas if feasible.

This a particular interesting area for few reasons, like its mild Autumn weather (some people would call it Summer), kilometers of beach to walk, and tons of places to trip to in the near by area. This zone holds the largest protected area in Spain, including a National Park, is also close to spectacular rocky beaches in Algarve, beautiful and big Sevilla is 90 minutes away and it has all the peace of the ocean right on the corner.

If you are coming from or going to Africa around those dates, this can also be a good place to make a stop and give the TR Community a hand (please read below) as part of your adventures.

We’d like to have a place where we can volunteer on something we love, TR Community, and also have a place to share an international helping spirit.

    1. How

We have some awesome people in the network now. We want to reach out and get some of these creative minds together in one space.

We will be all sharing the place, work, ideas, and how we would like to contribute or how TR should grow. However,sometimes work and fun go hand & hand and we want this to be one of those.

Food (Veg & Omni), shared accomodation and optional activities will be organized for volunteers willing to run the extra mile to help TR be accesible to more people.
