Duitsland | Constructie en kunst
Samen met 14 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 15 dagen naar een constructie en kunstproject.
Het project duurt van 7 t/m 22 juli.
Let op: naast het inschrijfgeld betaal je ter plekke nog een lokale bijdrage van € 50.
Volunteers are invited to join our campaigns and activities for promoting peace dur-ing the time of the workcamp. You will help us through your participation and through some manual and artistic work: In Mutlangen we will create a wall painting promoting a peaceful world. And together we will design and create another artistic installation for the so called “peace mead-ow” in Buechel and support the campaign against the remaining nuclear weapons. We believe that campaigns for nuclear disarmament and non violence conflict resolu-tion are messages worth to be spread in the media. We invite to you to learn from best examples in peace building and to help us to share these examples in social media as messages of peace. If possible you can translate them into your language. Such skills are particularly welcome! In both places you will do garden work: There is a little garden for vegetables and flowers in Mutlangen and in Buechel you can help to enlarge the peace meadow. Study part: The participants will receive information about nuclear weapons, ongoing nuclear armament programs and efforts of disarmament and reconciliation. We will share experiences about different forms of action for peace.
We sleep in tents. In Mutlangen in the garden of the “Pressehütte”. In Büchel in a peace camp on a field beside the military airfield. You will need sleeping pad and sleeping bag. Vegetarian Food will be prepared together.
The participants can visit rurals and urban attractions nearby
Several organizations of the German peace movement are currently running a campaign to ban the last nuclear weapons which are stationed in Germany. In the eighties huge protests out of the civil society has been successful and most of the inter-mediate-range missile, called Pershing II, has been disarmed in Germany. But in our world there are still more than 14.000 nuclear weapons remaining! The peace-workshop "Friedenswerkstatt Mutlangen" and "International Fellowship of Reconciliation" invite international volunteers to study peace and support activities against nuclear weapons. The workcamp will start in Mutlangen, a former location of nuclear missiles, 40 km east of Stuttgart. There the blockades against the missiles have been successfull. In the second part we move on to the military air-base Buechel on the Eifel hills, where still nuclear weapons are stationed. The workcamp will end when group is back in Mutlangen. Participants will get to know and discuss history and actual questions of nuclear dis-armament, trust-building and non violence. The campaign: Twenty nuclear bombs are still kept in the airbase Buechel. They belong to the US Army and in case of war, they would be flown by German pilots on the command of the president of the USA. Instead of abolished, as the international law demands, these weapons are going to be upgraded. The campaign "Buechel is everywhere – Global Zero Now" demands the stop of the so called modernization of the bombs, the removal from Germany and a legal ban of all nuclear weapons. The campaign is part of ICAN, (International Campaign to abolish Nuclear Weapons), which got the Nobel Peace Prize last year.
You will need sleeping bag and isolation sheet. Food will be vegetarian. The work-camp starts and ends in Mutlangen. A motivation letter is needed. Please let us know about your studies, work interests and concerns. Do not forget to bring a warm sweater and clothes, nights can be rather cold even in summer. Participation fee: We ask for a contribution of 50.- Euro for the travel costs during the workcamp.
