Mergoscia TI / Switzerland
Young adults from Switzerland, Ireland and Northern Ireland, Israel and Palestine come together in the Italian part of Switzerland. They explore the life and culture of the other participants, discuss conflicts and challenges related to borders and walls in the different countries, cook together and experience Swiss cultural heritage by building a stone wall in the mountains.
"Building Walls - Breaking Walls Ticino" takes place in the Valle de Verzasca (Verzasca Valley), in the beautiful ecological village Campo Cortoi, above the city of Mergoscia. This is a collaboration with our partners Pro Mergoscia and Urs Nüesch Silviculture and Landscape Management.
