When you return to your country try to develop locally what you learned
Workcamps are not vacations, so you don’t expect to do tourism. You may do some cultural visits, but it’s not the aim of the project.
You’ll be part of a local project and you’ll be living with local people, try to think about the impact of your presence there in a positive and in a negative way.
In Catalunya, and overall Barcelona, tourism has a huge impact in its population regarding prices and also lifestyle. Be aware of it before and during the project and try to reduce your impact.
