The idea for this project came from the Argonauta association´s rich experience in implementing volunteer programs as well as an extension of the successful promoting of knowledge and raising awareness about the values of cultural/archaeological heritage as common European value and its potential in terms of sustainable development of rural communities.

GOALS: The objective of the ISLAND EXTRAVAGANZA 2022 project is to continue raising the awareness and the interest of the public for the necessity of local cultural resources: archaeological site of Colentum, natural site Raduč Hill and Gradina peninsula conservation and valorization. Another important part of this project will be to make the voluntary work and benefits adjusted to local community needs and connect local and international youth volunteers to learn from each other about different benefits and opportunities of volunteerism and ESC Programme. Their knowledge, firstly of the archeological heritage from antiquity that we share in Europe, sustainable development of cultural and natural sites, community development and local culture will be broadened by: - learning to appreciate and learning to respect the sources that we have and share in Europe and beyond, - enriching their intercultural experience - they will have a chance to live and work with a group of young people coming from different social, economic, political, cultural or religious background on a topic of common interest. - having a chance to experience a new national culture (Croatian) and new local culture (Murter) and to accept values such as social inclusion, equal opportunities, active citizenship, solidarity, and tolerance. - improving their skills and competencies for personal, educational, social, civic, cultural and professional development resulting in their increased self-empowerment and self-esteem.
