This camp has different kind of tasks. Some days we will focus on renovation, painting, cleaning and fixing things around and inside the house. We will also do some artwork for example paintings and sculptures made of driftwood. Other days we will clean the coastline and/or plant trees in the area. We will give a special focus on global warming and the volunteers will have workshops about climate changes. The issue of global warming is well known all over the world. The 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. For example, planting trees is one of the main exercises of the camps. Planting trees becomes a very useful action against climate change because trees absorb carbon dioxide, clean the air and prevent erosions. Take part in this promising project and spring into action against climate change This work camp is a way to enjoy an amazing time in Iceland with other international volunteers and to have an incredible experience where participants share their knowledge with each other while they are exploring creativity, environmental issues and intercultural learning. When the forecast for the auroras borealis (Northern lights) are favourable we will go for aurora hunting
