PARTICIPATE IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE VILLA SHAMENGO
The Villa Shamengo project is the result of the involvement of members of our community. To meet this challenge, we need resources: human, material and financial. Therefore, we regularly launch Mobilization Campaigns for those who want to join the adventure!
Call for pioneers
Are you interested in equipping or decorating the Villa Shamengo? Are you developing or marketing an innovative service and think that it can facilitate the operation or enrich the planningg of the Villa Shamengo? Contact us! Like a living showroom, the Villa Shamengo allows you to present your innovation so that a professional and general audience can not only discover it, but also experience it, test it and why not, buy it. If your innovation is selected to be integrated into the the Villa Shamengo, we will offer you a partnership highlighting your work within our community and our professional partner’s network through various means.
Call for resource-waste
Every year, half of our waste is not recycled because it is too complicated or too expensive to process it. Yet today, ALL types of waste can become resources to produce new materials, objects or products. Those that we will collect through you will be entrusted to Shamengo pioneers who, like magicians, will be able to upcycle them during the construction or operation of the Villa Shamengo. Here are some samples of our inventory:
- food waste into biocompost,
- coffee grounds into compost for oyster mushrooms,
- frying oils into soap or biofuels,
- cardboard into bearing walls and insulators,
- jeans, papers and newspapers into thermal insulators,
- aluminium cans into a bioclimatic greenhouse,
- flat glass into glass panels,
- milk bottles into lamps,
- waste water into clean water,
- diapers into fuel,
- cigarette butts into hybrid plastic,
- small plastic waste into art!
Call for hosting
Do you live in Bordeaux and have a guest room? We suggest you offer free accommodation from one night to a week, to one volunteer who comes to help for the construction of the Villa Shamengo. Your generosity helps us greatly to manage our budget, but also allows you (at least we hope) to connect with a passionate or expert in their field, who certainly has a lot to teach you!
Call for communicators
Are you a journalist, a blogger, an aspiring reporter for your classroom or a reporter in charge of the internal communication of your company? Cover the project of building the Villa with an article, a report or a program, occasionally or on a regular basis, for your media! In return, Shamengo will provide you license free pictures and videos, and send you an invitation-preview to official events: to visit the construction site, to attend formalization of partnerships, to attend special evenings…
Call for financing
Do you wish to financially support the construction of the Villa Shamengo in Bordeaux? This outstanding collaborative project is the result of the involvement of Shamengo pioneers and numerous public, private and academic partners. However, kind donations and sponsorship are not enough to meet this challenge; we also need money to pay quite of few of our expenses. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to our Association of general interest ‘Les amis de la Villa allée Serr’.
