This project is actively working for SDG 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities) and SDGs 15 (Life on Land), self-organized by NICE for the first time.

The application is on behalf of the Social Entrepreneurship Team AADK (ActionAid Denmark/Mellemfolkeligt Samvirke), who exist to create and maintain socio-economical businesses supporting the work of AADK and the youth that lead it. The ESC volunteer project will take place at our hostel, Globalhagen, and our cafE, Mellemrummet. The Social Entrepreneurship Team is responsible for our 4 not for profit social enterprises that support AADK with meeting their goals. The businesses are 2 cafEs located in Copenhagen and E-rhus, the Globalhagen hostel located in Copenhagen and Globalhagen House located in Copenhagen as well. Besides mobilizing youth through volunteer projects in the cafEs and hostel we also run a social mentorship programme supporting people who have been outside the labour market for 5 years or more due to unequal structures in society. Every two years the volunteers of all the enterprises and the entire AADK democratically elect a new support project run by one of the ActionAid federation platforms. Since we opened Globalhagen Hostel in 2015 we have supported projects such as empowering and mobilizing youth in challenged areas in El Salvador and we are currently supporting a feminist leadership training programme in Uganda. Our social enterprises are run by volunteers, who represent a diverse, activist group of young people, who stand together in solidarity and inclusion regardless of origin, religion, sexuality, and access to privilege. Globalhagen Hostel is part of a worldwide community located in NErrebro, a vibrant and diverse neighbourhood in Copenhagen. We currently have 180 active volunteers running the cafEs and hostel. We invite our hostel guest to have transformative experiences through sharing stories about our support projects and volunteers, and by hosting political events focusing on inequality, anti-discrimination and climate justice. We also inspire conscious and sustainable consumerism and are proud to be the only not for profit hostel in Copenhagen. At this point we have had volunteers from more than 60 countries and we continuously cooperate with many local and global actors in empowering youth through volunteering opportunities, job trainings, student jobs and internships. For 10 years we have been working with people with fewer opportunities – integrating challenged people in our team as interns and volunteers with the scope of improving their skills and chances for (re)entering the labour market.The ESC programme is run by us, Audrius and Majken, who works from the office in Copenhagen.

In addition, the institution also supports other 14 children at their homes after they were reintegrated to their families and the community.

PARTENAIRE

Worldwide Friends (WF), was founded in 2001 as a non-profit organization promoting nature and peace-oriented activities for volunteers wanting to spend some time in Iceland. Our main theme for this year is to give education about the 17 Sustainable Goals of the United Nations and to clean the whole coastline of Iceland. The main activities that we offer are workcamps, seminars, local events, and exchange programs suitable both for young people and adults. The heart of the SElheimar ideology is to give all individuals a fair chance and to maximize their potential. By focusing on individuals possibility instead of their limitations, SElheimar aims to create the space for each resident to take every opportunity that arises for each person to grow and develop. Versatility is the strength of SElheimar so people with special needs that reside here will always be the center of the community. This works through the idea of reverse integration: those without special needs adapt to the abilities of those who do, they can work together to make their community of an equal and sustainable one. The foundation of the ideology of SElheimar derives from the visions and lifework of Sesselja herself.

TRAVAIL

The main work in this camp will be in forestry called Eilur and also in the greenhouses which are called Sunna. Volunteers will be working in the greenhouses planting and harvesting vegetables, doing weed control and sometimes you will also be gardening. The work might involve work around the property painting or fixing things. During the winter volunteers will also have to help remove snow and keep the walk paths clear for the residents.Working hours are 09.00 to 16.00 with one hour break for lunch and there are some coffee breaks as well.Our work will depend on weather conditions, which is why we must be flexible. You should be prepared for unfriendly weather, as they say: if you dont like the Icelandic weather, just wait 5 minutes it might change.It is a community where people with or without special needs live and work together. SElheimar is a pioneer of practicing organic farming. In SElheimar there is an organically certified greenhouse, forestry, and arboretum. Other environmental-friendly projects in SElheimar include geothermal energy and recycling.

LOGEMENT & NOURRITURE
