This European Solidarity Corps volunteering team is jointly organised by Allianssi Youth Exchanges and Hyvarila Youth and Holiday Centre. It is supported by the European Solidarity Corps programme and is open for 18-30 year old citizens and residents of Finland and other EU countries. Hyvarila Youth and Holiday Centre is a member of the Finnish youth centres network, working under the auspices of the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture.

TRAVAIL

Kekri is an autumn festival of harvest, transition from summer and light to winter and darkness in eastern Finland. This is a time for cooking traditional and local food, bringing community and generations together, remembering ancestors and celebrating light. Volunteers explore the Finnish culture and nature, sustainability, creativity and work with local community of different age groups: from children to elderly people. The activities vary from learning about traditional harvest season foods and cooking and building a nature path in the forest to creativity and video-making activities, upcycling and crafts and meeting local community members and organizing activities with them. Volunteers will work 30-35 hours per week with two days off. The project suits well to people who have interest in some of the following areas: traditional culture, arts and crafts, nature and outdoors activities, cooking and sustainability.

LOGEMENT & NOURRITURE

20 volunteers stay in Hyvarila youth centre on the shore of lake Pielinen, surrounded by forest and water. Accommodation is in a youth hostel, 1-2 persons per room with shared bathrooms and showers, and a common room. Meals are cooked by volunteers for the whole group in shifts of 4 volunteers. Prepare to cook food for your teammates at least three times Volunteers are responsible for cleaning their own rooms.

SITUATION

We welcome warmly volunteers who enjoy staying in a small and isolated rural community surrounded by nature and serenity. Openness to meet the local community and people with different backgrounds is essential to get a comprehensive image of the rural North Karelian community. The group will be hosted in Hyvarila youth centre (www.hyvarila.com/english/) is 3,5 km away from Nurmes town where the nearest train and bus station are. Closest big towns are Joensuu and Kuopio, both 2 hours away by bus or train. It takes 7 hours to get to Nurmes from Helsinki with 2 changes of train, but it is totally worth it.

BESOIN SPÉCIAL

This project is supported by the EU European Solidarity Corps programme and is open for 18-30 year old citizens and residents of EU countries. Participation is free of charge, as well as board and lodging. Volunteers need to stay the full duration of the project in order to get their pocket money (5 euros per day) and travel cost reimbursed (20-360 euros depending on the distance). Due to covid-19 pandemic all the volunteers need to have certificates of their full series of approved covid-19 vaccinations or a certificate of earlier covid-19 infection less than 6 months ago. The weather can be cold in late autumn so the volunteers need to bring warm clothes and also proper gear for outdoors, hiking boots, gloves and hat as well as a raincoat.

Open Houses ( rooms open for those who come along.Open Houses ( not empty buildings, but places with visible and invisible traces of history, places which have grown and decayed over the centuries, places which were shaped by those people who lived there long ago as well those who left only yesterday ( places which will be shaped by those who live there or who come as a guest.Open Houses ( rooms which want to be filled with dreams and ideas, with meetings and exchange, by people of different backgrounds, different cultures, different generations and different ideas and visions.The history of Open Houses Network dates back to the mid-1980s, when a group of young people started to restore village churches in East Germany in voluntary work to protect them from decay. The engagement for these buildings united people who enjoyed the freedom these activities provided and who filled these rooms with life again in ways which by far exceed the craftsmen s work done ( through exhibitions, concerts, making music together or just sitting by the camp fire. Meanwhile, rooms free of political and ideological pressure are no longer urgently required; however, places have become rare where people can meet without commercial pressure, free of bureaucracy and institutionalism, free of nepotism and the exclusion which it produces. What should be easy ( to go somewhere in order to meet people and to work together ( has become difficult. The tightrope walk between, on the one hand, public activities in a monetary and functional sense, and the retreat into private life on the other, is very difficult, and it requires a lot of power and permanent efforts to tackle red tape and financial restrictions.Free spaces are less and less understood as common property, and are permanently being cut back. The idea of public property seems to have gone out of fashion, and places of common responsible work have become rare.Open Houses Network tries to create and protect such spaces. In this process, we do not want to be the drs, but be people who have a vision, who want to initiate something, but who also are aware of depending on the co-operation of others. We understand our projects and events as offers ( as offers to create space for commitment, for changes, for meetings.

TRAVAIL

The projects of Open Houses are based on sustainable principles. Therefore, the activities at Lohra Castle combine aspects of cultural heritage preservation and aspects of natural heritage preservation. The participants of the Workcamps carry out works in the green areas and the forests around the castle, restoration work and collaboration in renovation works.

LOGEMENT & NOURRITURE

All costs linked to the project are covered, including food, accommodation, insurance and transportation during the stay at the project. Travel costs to and from the camp place are not covered. Participants should organise their journey to and from the project place by themselves and on their own expenses. Furthermore, participants should bring their own pocket money.ACCOMMODATIONIn most of Open Houses camps the volunteers will live at the same places they also work on, what means that they live more or less on a building site. In most of the Heritage Volunteers Projects the accommodation is located in a certain distance to the working site. The accommodation is usually very simple; there are shared rooms with simple beds or mattresses at most of the places. Shower, toilet and kitchen are at the place, but sometimes not in the same building. The equipment is simple but fair. After work, when everybody wants to take a shower, there can be a limit of hot water.FOODThe meals will be prepared together as they are part of the community life, what means that every participant will be responsible for the meal at least once during its stay. So it would be very nice if the participants could bring typical recipes from home in order to introduce each other to the preparation of food from all over the world.

SITUATION

Lohra Castle is situated in the heart of Germany in Northern Thuringia. The castle, which is surrounded by a scenic hilly landscape, is located on the edge of a nature reserve area. Being one of the largest castles in Thuringia, the history of the castle Lohra begins in the Middle Age. The castle is more than 1,000 years old. Today, it includes twenty buildings from different times: medieval fortifications, remnants of a tower from the 11th century, a Romanesque chapel, a manor house from the Renaissance period as well as stables and granaries from the 19th and the early 20th centuries. The ensemble is situated in the centre of a beautiful forest. For years Lohra Castle was vacant. In the 1990s Open Houses started to restore the castle and to revive it by cultural activities. Since that time, a large number of Workcamps, Building Weeks, exhibitions, concerts and other activities with international participants took place in the castle.

In their activities, they focus mainly on the cxistence of Czech and German culture in the Czech lands and on critical knowledge and reflection on this cxistence. Hojnost is an association for more accessible local and healthy food, it has been cooperating with the Porta cli monastery since January 2019, when it started cleaning old monastery orchards and gardens as part of volunteer projects in order to turn them into production orchards and a community garden.

Morelia is the state capital of Michoacan and its a dynamic and beautiful city.

We will give a special focus on global warming and the volunteers will have workshops about 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 have to understand the issues and tasks first. In addition to the theoretical part we are going to practice sustainable work. For example, planting trees is a very useful action against climate change because trees absorb carbon dioxide, clean the air and prevent erosion. Take part in this promising project and spring into action against climate change Coastal cleaning is also a very important task, we collect all the plastic from the coast and reuse it in our art workshop. This work camp is a way to enjoy an amazing time in Iceland with other international volunteers and to have an incredible experience where participants share their knowledge with each other while they are exploring creativity, environmental issues and intercultural learning.
