TRAVAIL

In a two-week workcamp you will work with experts to turn the Jewish cemetery in Zittau into an inclusive place of learning and remembrance. Participants will receive an introduction to the history of the cemetery and the region and will learn about different burial customs. We will also visit other places of Jewish life in GErlitz (GER), Liberec (CZ) and Sieniawka (PL) and gain an insight into the cultural characteristics of the region. In the second week, we want to make the outlines of the funeral hall at the Jewish cemetery, which was demolished by the Nazis in November 1938, visible again. And last but not least, we will install a tactile model of the funeral hall and a fountain, which will enable visitors of the cemetery to perform the ritual washing of hands.If you want more information you can visit www.mazewa.eu.

LOGEMENT & NOURRITURE

Accomodation:Volunteers will be accommodated in the environmental education center at Zittaus zoo, which is a 5-minutes walk from the cemetery. You will be sleeping in bunk beds. There are bathrooms with showers, a kitchen, a common room and a washing machine. From the porch, you have a great view of the Zoos llamas.There is no Wi-Fi on the premises, but a large recreational outdoor area where volunteers can build a campfire, play games etc. Internet will be provided in our main building, a mansion that used to be home to the Hiller family (hence its name Hillersche Villa). Food:At the accommodation, there is a big kitchen for the group. The kitchen team of your group will be responsible for cleaning the kitchen. Volunteers will cook the meals for themselves. Ideas for cooking are welcome. In case you need any special spices or ingredients for your recipes, please bring them with you, as you might not be able to buy them in Germany. On some days, lunch may be taken care of by local volunteers or our restaurant.

SITUATION

Location:Zittau is a small town with a beautiful historic center, located in the easternmost part of Germany, on the German, Polish and Czech border. In the late 19th century, a small Jewish population settled here, founding a religious community and establishing a Jewish cemetery. After World War II and the Shoah, Zittaus Jewish cemetery has almost been forgotten. Being located outside of town, it fell prey to natural and violent destruction. Until 2003, numerous cases of vandalism were recorded. Since then, Hillersche Villa, together with volunteers and the municipality, has been working on the restoration of the Jewish cemetery. Our aim is to enhance its visibility and building awareness of the Jewish history of Zittau through guided tours and educational programs like this international workcamp.Leisure: We will offer cultural and social activities on some evenings. Generally, you are free to spend your leisure time on the grounds of the accommodation, in the Park next to it or in the old town of Zittau (ca. 30 min. walking from accommodation). In case you want to share any games/songs/traditions from your home, please bring the necessary equipment/instruments. If it is warm enough, we can organize for you to go to the nearby lake (Olbersdorfer See) to go swimming.

BESOIN SPÉCIAL

Please bring a five-minute presentation on the topic of death and funeral traditions in your cultural environment.

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.

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.

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. The houses are all fully equipped, volunteers should bring their own warm sleeping bags. 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

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.

TRAVAIL

The protection of the environment is a major challenge today. The solid waste management should be an urgent action to protect the environment. Solid waste is a by-product of human activities, which tends to increase with rapid urbanization, improved living standard and changing consumption patterns. Management of increasing amount of solid waste has become a major challenge in many communities in Nepal. If solid waste is properly used it can be a valuable resource, but if it is not effectively managed, it can result in serious adverse impact on environment and public health. The problems associated with the disposal of waste in public places in VIN s working communities, including schools, are numerous and they include littering of food remains and other waste materials. There is a potential health risks associated with the poor management of solid waste .Children are particularly susceptible to respiratory problems caused by dust from dumping sites and also to diarrhoea ,skin disease and eye infection amongst other diseases. Non-biodegradable waste (NBW) is common in communities that are urbanised or within the vicinity of an urbanised environment. Nepal has a huge challenge of NBW visible to the naked-eye. This NBW phenomenon is a much larger issue in rural communities such as Kavresthali and Okharpauwa community located beyond the outskirts of Kathmandu. Preventing the build-up of NBW in communities becomes top priority as diseases derived from NBW increases the prevalence of disease related to sanitation and consumable products. Furthermore, NBW causes degradation to the land. The majority of farmers use to grow local products to feed their households and farm-stock. This project is designed to generate a change in the community with a theme of Better Environment i Better Tomorrow . Objective: -Prevent and control water, land and air pollution through environment education and cleaning activities. Activities: – -Organize the waste management /Community clean-up campaign by involving community people. -Train local people on garbage management (segregation, disposal, domestic methodology to make compost fertilizer etc.)-Develop the concept of kitchen garden and train the households to implement it in their homes.

LOGEMENT & NOURRITURE

The volunteers will stay with the host family/hostel identified by VIN. The living facilities are simple and basic. Male and female volunteers will share the same living area with separate rooms. The volunteers sleep on simple beds / mattress. Please bring your sleeping bag. The food will be provided in Nepali standard i.e. dal bhat (rice, lentil soup, vegetables, pickle, eggs).

Over the past year, all the changes connected to COVID-19 have posed new challenges to all of us. Many workcamps had to be cancelled. Volunteers who were excited to work in an intercultural group in a foreign country could not make it to their camps and many of us were forced to stay within their own houses for months. However, not only bad things came out of this. During lockdown we started to host our first virtual camps and learnt that online meetings are a great way of connecting with people all across the world and promoting our ideals and environmental awareness, even without meeting physically. Join us in this virtual camp to volunteer and learn in a different way

TRAVAIL

What will we be working on together? SEEDS camp leaders will be creating opportunities for you to focus on different current environmental and sustainability issues through a selection of workshops and activities online. One of our aims is to help create more environmentally aware consumers and travellers. During this camp participants can share their love for (and learn more about) global and local environmental topics such as climate change, waste management, sustainable solutions. There will be two to three different sessions each day. As each of our camp leaders have focused on specific topics according to their knowledge and experiences, the sessions we offer can be arranged with the participants based on what they are more interested in and can include: – Plant-based cooking and vegetarian baking classes – DIY natural self-care or cleaning products tips – DIY repurposing plastic bottles/used products workshops – Everyday eco-friendly habits workshops – Overall Iceland introduction and Iceland-related environmental issues workshops – Presentations about the effects of tourism and slow-travel tips – Presentations about the problems of fashion industry and clothes upcycling tips – Presentations about climate change and how to face deniers – Presentations about permaculture and urban agriculture – Fun and interesting environmental quizzes and documentaries Note that this project is a learning/sharing camp, so we encourage everyone to share their knowledge and participate actively in this learning process. We also encourage our participants to create and share presentations about their countries, as our leaders will do the same. This is a great way to meet new people from all over the world, so you can exchange ideas, experiences, language, music, recipes and much more with the other online volunteers, just as in a regular workcamp. Bring your own ideas and let s be creative together

LOGEMENT & NOURRITURE

Your own home It might not be a brand new experience, but hey, you might be missing out on sharing a room with the whole workcamp group or having to make a schedule for the showers. Is that really so bad…? Plus, in our virtual camp, you might have a chance to see how different homes all over the world look

SITUATION

This camp takes place online. It is accessible to everybody with a working internet connection. No borders, no visa, no need to travel, so you are saving CO2 emissions which is better for our beautiful planet While it is important to keep physical distance at the moment, we can create social proximity in the digital world. We believe that especially in times as challenging as these, it is important to raise our voices for solidarity and international friendship. International workcamps were created 100 years ago to work towards mutual understanding, peace and solidarity beyond borders. Let s keep this spirit and find new ways to get to know and support each other. These virtual camps are organised as an effort to keep up international volunteering, even if most of us cannot travel right now.

BESOIN SPÉCIAL

English will be the language in the camp; conversational skills are required. Internet connection, and a laptop camera and microphone. Applicants need to send us a concise motivation letter stating their interest to join. You must attend at least 80 of the activities and complete the homework and assignments in order to receive a certificate of attendance.

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.
