Worldwide Friends Iceland (WF) was founded in 2001 as a non-governmental, non-profit organisation promoting nature and peace-oriented activities among people interested in spending time in Iceland as volunteers. The main activities offered by WF Iceland are work- and educational camps, exchange programs and seminars related to environmental protection. Our activities are suitable for anyone over the age of 18.Today the endeavour of attaining world peace has become a tangible possibility and the development and strengthening of bonds of cooperation and friendship through contact with people from other countries and cultures has proven to be one of the most fruitful means of achieving understanding and unity among nations. Worldwide friends main aim is to increase intercultural understanding through offering foreign volunteers the opportunity to take part in nature and peace-related activities.For volunteers coming to Iceland, such projects will give them a unique opportunity not only to explore and directly interact with Icelands unique culture and landscape, but also to work with other international volunteers and residents in challenging and unfamiliar contexts. This interaction between unspoiled nature and people from different backgrounds provides the participants with invaluable opportunities to learn more about themselves as individuals, their international fellows, other culture and the human and natural richness of Mother Earth. These are all unique opportunities for building bonds of unity and understanding between societies around the world.

TRAVAIL

Volunteers will be cleaning the coastline in different parts of the island and help recycling the plastic which we are collecting there. Most of the mornings during the program we will have workshops for two hours about the sustainable goals with a special focus on climate changes. The issue of global warming is well known all over the world. Humanity must act in a more environmentally friendly way. The main goal of this project is to improve the environmental education and consciousness of the projects participants. Within the project we will learn about green energy, sustainable householding, waste treatment, nutrition, the effects of consumption and lots more. If you want to change something, develop solutions, or inspire others, you must understand the issues and tasks first. In addition to the theoretical part, we are going to practice sustainable work. The clean up the coastline is the main task but we will also plant trees during the camp. Planting trees becomes a very useful action against climate change because trees absorb carbon dioxide, clean the air and prevent erosions. Our work will depend on weather conditions, which is why we must be flexible. You should be prepared for unfriendly weather, but hopefully, the weather will be nice most of the time. This is a perfect camp for people who like outdoor work and physical challenges. Working hours are about 6 hours a day, 5 days a week.

LOGEMENT & NOURRITURE

Worldwide Friends volunteers will be going from Reykjavik on the first day of the project to BrE and then later on to RaufarhEfn and Stodvarfjordur.

Wireless internet access is provided free of charge.Food is included for the duration of the workcamp; however, everyone is expected to do their fair share of the cooking and cleaning. Since it is always nice to try new and different dishes, volunteers are encouraged to bring along their favourite recipes from homePlease keep in mind that there will be other volunteers in the same houses at the same time as your group.

SITUATION

During the project you will travel around Iceland starting in Reykjavik, spending twelve days in our sustainable centre in the Northwest, two weeks in RaufarhEfn near to the Arctic circle and two weeks in StEdvarfjErE(ur in the east of IcelandReykjavik is a city full of energy, just waiting for you to experience it. Powered by heat from the earth below, with ever-changing weather sweeping across the landscape, its natural features are matched by the energy of its residents. Think of the denominators of a great city – fun, culture, nature, clean air – Reykjavik has them in spades. All the advantages of a modern, forward-looking society are complemented by the beautiful natural setting. In a country of only just over 300,000 people, the Reykjavik Capital Area has a population of about 200,000. However, since its the only major city in the country, Reykjavik has a lot of the amenities that you would only expect to find in a much larger centre elsewhere in the world. BrE the sustainable centre of Worldwide Friends is near to the crossroads to the West, South and North of Iceland in the area of Hrutafjordur which is a 36 km long fjord in Hunathing vestra. In the neighbourhood you can find a lot of pure and unspoiled nature, beaches full of driftwood, SnEfellsnes peninsula, glaciers in the highlands, waterfalls, strong rivers, canyons, and craters. The purpose of the centre is to protect the nature in the area and to raise the awareness of sustainability among the locals and the visitors which are coming to the area.The house is more than 1.000 mI and has 16 double rooms, two kitchens, several bathrooms and common areas, rooms for workshops and galleries. It has its own generator to produce electricity for heating and daily use. The generator is broken at the moment but will be active later on this year.The village of RaufarhEfn is the community that lies farthest north in Iceland. It is located in the eastern part of Melrakkasletta close to the Arctic Circle. The population of RaufarhEfn is about 200 and most of the people there earn their living from fishing and fish processing. The harbour is very beautiful and partly shaped by nature itself. A wide and untouched open area surrounds the village with a lot of birds and varied vegetation. In summer one will observe wild migratory birds within the village being a part of the village life with the villagers most often waking up in the morning to the songs of birds. The coastline with its inlets and creeks is filled with driftwood and reaches out into the Arctic Sea. Away and on the surface of the sea various sea-birds will be spotted and an occasional seal. On the beach waders strut and inland on the grassy moorlands there are dozens of lakes filled with trout. In the vicinity many species of ducks, waders and species that favour heaths and moorlands may be observed.

SITUATION

MORELIA, founded in 1541, was one of the first Spanish cities in Nueva EspaE a. The first viceroy, Antonio de Mendoza, named it Valladolid after the Spanish city and he encouraged Spanish nobility to move here with their families. In 1828, after Nueva EspaE a had become the Republic of Mexico, the city was renamed Morelia in honor of local hero JosE MarEa Morelos y PavEn, a key figure in Mexicos independence. Morelia is the state capital of Michoacan and its a dynamic and beautiful city. Also, Morelia is an increasingly popular destination, and rightly so: the colonial heart of the city is so well preserved that it was declared a Unesco World Heritage site in 1991, and its cathedral is not just gorgeous, its inspirational. You can walk in downtown which has many cultural activities and discover the variety of historic buildings and monuments.To learn more about Morelia;https://www.lonelyplanet.com/mexico/western-central-highlands/morelia http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/585/gallery/ RINCON DE GUAYABITOS, also known as Guayabitos, is a beach located in the astonishing Sierra Madre Occidental, in the state of Nayarit and bathed by the waters of the Pacific Ocean. It is a popular tourist destination due to its proximity to the cities of Tepic, Guadalajara and Puerto Vallarta.During their stay in Morelia City, leaders can take a walk in downtown which has many cultural activities throughout the year, and discover the variety of historic buildings and monuments, for those looking to surround themselves by natural wonders, Morelia offers many options: 45 kilometers from PatzcuaroIs lake and the ancient pyramids of Tzintzuntzan, the magical towns of Cuitzeo, Patzcuaro and Santa Clara del Cobre, the islands of the Pancada, Janitzio among others that the native cultures identified as the border between worlds, and several ceremonial centers of the Mesoamerican pre-Hispanic times. Once in Guayabitos, leaders enjoy various activities in one of the most attractive destinations in Mexico. The area extends approximately 300 kilometers along the coast, integrated by mountainous jungle and facing coastal islands. For those seeking a more rural and rustic side of Mexico, the Riviera has a massive open space for everyone along the Nayarit coast beaches, for those who want to relax, quiet beaches and other beaches with heavy waves for surfers.

SITUATION

The village of RaufarhEfn is the community that lies farthest north in Iceland. It is located in the eastern part of Melrakkasletta close to the Arctic Circle. The population of RaufarhEfn is about 200 and most of the people there earn their living from fishing and fish processing. The harbor is very beautiful and partly shaped by nature itself. A wide and untouched open area surrounds the village with a lot of birds and varied vegetation. In summer one will observe wild migratory birds within the village being a part of the village life with the villagers most often waking up in the morning to the songs of birds. The coastline with its inlets and creeks is filled with driftwood and reaches out into the Arctic Sea. Away and on the surface of the sea various sea-birds will be spotted and an occasional seal. On the beach waders strut and inland on the grassy moorlands there are dozens of lakes filled with trout. In the vicinity many species of ducks, waders and species that favor heaths and moorlands may be observed.

Volunteers will be cleaning the coastline in different parts of the island and help recycling the plastic which we are collecting there. Most of the mornings during the program we will have workshops for two hours about the sustainable goals with a special focus on climate changes. In addition to the theoretical part, we are going to be working in the beaches. There the work will be divided in two phases. The first one consists on mapping the shore with drones and cameras to identify the conditions of the beach. The data will be used to improve the impact of our work and to maximize the resources. We are conducting a long-term program of beach cleaning and the data will be crucial for scientific research. The second phase is the beach cleaning. Our work will depend on weather conditions, which is why we must be flexible. You should be prepared for unfriendly weather, but hopefully, the weather will be nice most of the time.
