The Experience

Currently we are looking for people to get involved in the reconstruction of the roof of our 150m2 production centre. Come to participate and make it a green roof with us! This production centre is aimed to be a central facility for builders and hosting workshop for the surrounding community. We need support on the building process from tyre foundations, carpentry, stone, metal or wood work... depending on the process at the moment of your stay.

Wonderful people and the meaningful concept! The hours and tasks are fair, interesting and well organised. I really enjoyed the community way of living, cooking and cleaning up together during work days, we had cozy dinners together and went to a climate manifestation. Also had a lot of free time to do other things around the city. Porto is amazing but be aware, the winter season is very cold and humid. It is fine when you are working physically, but bring warm clothes for the night and "still" time.

This was our second experience with the Worldpackers and couldn't have been better. All the staff are very attentive and always willing to teach you every task. Lunch was always very tasty and our room was huge! From the first day we were very well received by everyone, especially by Samuel and Sonia who were the ones with whom we lived together (we will miss you very much!). It was an experience, although unusual for us, very enriching, because we had contact with people from diverse places of the world and we learned a lot. We are very grateful to Critical Concrete for being part of this <3
