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.

The main achievement of the project is to protect the sea turtles with the help of volunteers who will be cooperating with a team of biologists.

Some of the activities to be performed are:1. Finding adult turtles and collect their eggs.2. Moving the eggs to a protected place called Vivero.3. Releasing newborn baby turtles into the sea.4. Patrolling the beaches at night.5. Making some reconstruction in the most important turtle camps of the region.If you love nature, want to have a great time by the beautiful beaches, at the same time enjoying all the amenities of a hotel and witnessing the magical spectacle of natural miracles that has been reoccurring since millions of years… then this project is for you

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. This workcamp will focus on preparing the castle for the winter, collecting wood and clearing the meadows.

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.

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.

During this camp, participants can share their love for (and learn more about) global and local environmental issues, as well as photography. If you are interested in topics such as climate change, waste management, animal protection and sustainability, and you also love taking photographs or want to develop your photography skills, then this project is for you

TRAVAIL

While developing artistic and technical photography skills, you will be focusing on environmental and sustainability issues through non-formal activities such as workshops, discussions, presentations and visits facilitated by SEEDS. One of our aims is to help create more environmentally aware consumers and travellersYou will visit local projects on environment and conservation. These may include hands-on activities or guided visits. Some examples include outdoor cleanup tasks, a community dinner or a visit to a recycling centre, a geothermal power plant, a museum or exhibition. Some of these activities are dependent on conditions such as weather, pandemic-related restrictions, as well as availability of our partner organisations.You will also have time to put the theory about photography into practice, walking around and exploring the city. At the end of the camp, the best photographs from each participant are selected for an online exhibition on SEEDS social media. Participants should bring their own digital cameras, lenses, tripods and laptops if possible.SEEDS programme combines learning, sharing, hands-on activities, getting to know Iceland, its culture, having fun, exploring the city and stunning natural attractions in the Golden Circle or other excursions. Participants should prepare to share environmental issues from their countries and should be ready to spend time outdoors walking medium distances during activities and sightseeing. Note this project is a learning/sharing camp and not a standard workcamp. This project has a smaller work part and puts a bigger emphasis on the personal learning process than on the community impact.In this project SEEDS will organise a night photography and aurora hunting (Northern Lights) workshop in the countryside near Reykjavik. This will take place during late evening and possibly into the night. Northern lights are a natural phenomenon depending on solar activity and meteorological conditions; we cannot guarantee you will see northern lights, but the night photography workshop will be organised anyway.

LOGEMENT & NOURRITURE

SEEDS participants will stay in a house in Reykjavik. The facilities are basic with a kitchen, showers, and a washing machine. Everyone is expected to show consideration for their companions. Participants will sleep in shared rooms or dormitories. Please bring your own sleeping bag.Volunteers will receive food supplies and will be in charge of cooking and cleaning. Please note the food SEEDS provides will be vegetarian. Do not forget to bring some traditional/typical food, drinks, recipes, music, games or movies from your country for the international evening. Please be aware some items or ingredients may be expensive in Iceland and you will need to buy them yourselves or bring them from your country.
