Nogent-sur-Oise is, until the Industrial Revolution, a small village which has evolved with the apparition of the railway, the population grew up from 435 to about 20 000 inhabitants. Located near Creil, the town is in the heart of the industry zone but also of the stone quarries. Thus, Nogent-sur-Oise quickly becomes an important city in the department of Oise.
Today, the municipality wants to valorise the local history and continue to improve the living environment for its inhabitants. Thus, they signed a convention with an organization in charge of natural spaces to reorganize the former community gardens. To help them, Concordia extends the workcamp partnership for 4 years at least. This workcamp is the chance to reorganise the former community gardens, located next to the center of the town. You will have the opportunity to be in contact and share with the local population.

Come to celebrate with us the 10th workcamp of Nogent-sur-Oise!
The mythic workcamp continues the momentum with the mixt of local and international teenagers. You will be closely integrated into the life of the community, in the animations with the children of the leisure centre and in the retirement home.
This year we will work on the heritage but also on the natural environment of the city. Because the region is known for its stone quarries, the volunteers will naturally work with the local material: the Saint-Maximin stone. You will reorganize natural spaces next to the center of Nogent-sur-Oise and will also create reception facilities in local stone.
In brief, it will be a rewarding experience with international, intercultural and intergenerational exchanges.
