Frequently Asked Questions

Below you will find the questions frequently asked by the participants and entities.


Do I need special skills or specific knowledge to carry out the activities?

No, you don’t. One of the main objectives of Simbiose is that anyone can participate in our actions, that’s why they are accessible. To participate you just need some motivation and desire for new experiences!

Make sure you read the description of the action you want to join correctly, some actions may not be appropriate for the situation you are at the moment (for example, a sprain can make difficult to collect garbage on the beach).


From which age can I start participating in the actions?

In Simbiose, the actions are open to all ages. However, if you are under 16, you must be accompanied by your mother, father or legal guardian. If you are between 16 and 18 years old, you can come alone to our actions, but we need the permission of your father or mother or legal guardian.


I am between 16 and 18 years old, where can I get permission for my father/mother or legal guardian to suscribe?

Here you can download the document to enroll in an action. When you receive the confirmation email of registration, the document will also be attached.

  • Comply with a social and / or environmental need.
  • Short actions: they must last between a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 4 hours.
  • Accessible actions: that any person with motivation, eagerness and open minded can carry out.
  • Collective actions: the action must be provided by at least 3 people.
  • They will never be activities to raise funds for the entity.


What relationship do I have with the participants of Simbiose?

Simbiose is in charge of sending the participants and, before starting the activity, it explains all the necessary information to optimally carry out the specific action. All this information that our association offers you is previously marked through the meetings and / or exchanges that we have with your organization.

On the same day of the action, a person from our association will welcome the participants and make sure that they are in the right place and form. Once all the participants have arrived, a member of your organization should take the time to present their association and its activities so that people know more about your work.

During the action, your entity must manage the team and ensure that all participants have tasks to do.


How to be sure that the participants are serious and competent?

In all actions there is a responsible person who makes sure to send reminders to registered persons, and they are asked to confirm their participation in the action. These contacts before the action also help to verify the motivation of the people registered.

In terms of skills and competences, as specified in the type of actions that we support, only missions that do not require special skills are offered, and all people can perform them independently of their training, experience, etc.
