Please note this project is a learning/sharing camp, in which everybody is expected to contribute their own knowledge and experience, and not a standard workcamp. The main focus of this camp is to learn about different aspects of environmental and sustainability issues through a selection of workshops, discussions and visits. Topics may include issues like renewable energy, food waste, and sustainable practices such as collaborative consumption or veganism. The over 2 million tourists coming to Iceland every year leave a mark on the country. This camp will help you to be an environmentally aware traveller and consumer. Participants also get the chance to visit local projects focused on the environment, such as a visit to a local recycling centre whereby a tour of the plant is given and the activities are explained. The group will also visit a Geothermal power plant and have a guided tour of the facilities via interactive multimedia installations, wall displays and presentations to learn about Iceland s geothermal energy utilization. SEEDS participants may also get a chance to improve the local environment through hands-on volunteer activities. In most cases, the camp includes a day or two of voluntary service but in some cases it will not be possible, as the weather does not always allow activities to take place outdoors.This is a camp that combines learning, sharing, exploring Reykjavik, and having fun. Participants should also use this opportunity to share something abo

SEEDS participants will stay in a house in Reykjavik. The facilities are basic with showers, kitchen, washing machine and everyone is expected to show consideration for their companions. Participants will sleep in shared rooms in a sleeping bag accommodation. Please bring your own sleeping bag. Participants from other projects may also stay in the house for part of the time.We will receive food supplies and the group will be in charge of the cooking and cleaning activities. Do not forget some traditional/typical food, drinks, music and/or recipes from your home country for the international evening.

Reykjavik is a dynamic, modern city which lives in harmony with beautiful nature, using renewable energy sources – geothermal- and hydropower. The world s northernmost capital bridges the Atlantic, between Europe and North America. Reykjavik is spread across a peninsula with a panoramic view of the mountains and the Atlantic Ocean on almost all sides.

The Environment and Sustainability learning camp allows participants to share and learn about global and local issues through theory and practice. If you are concerned, for example, about climate change, waste management, animal protection, sustainable solutions and other environmental topics then this project is for you. Local Icelandic environmental issues as well as issues from the participants countries will be addressed.

Some excursions (eg. South Shore, Hot River hike, Snaefellsnes or Reykjanes) can be arranged at discount fares for SEEDS participants in case there is additional free time after the workshops and sessions of the camp. Be prepared for all kinds of weather, it can be cold or rainy. We recommend to bring good walking shoes/boots, warm and/or waterproof clothes (jacket, layers, scarf, gloves and hat) as part of the activities take place outside.

Participation fee EUR 350 (Euros), which can either be transferred in advance via bank transfer, or paid for on arrival. The fee includes transportation from the meeting point to the camp (on the first day), as well as the visits to the Geothermal power plant, the recycling centre and the Golden Circle excursion.
