During the workcamp we will do different kind of environmental work, for example clean the coastline, plant trees and maintaining hiking paths. Our work will also depend on weather conditions and that s why we have to be flexible. Please keep in mind that the work might be physically hard, and you should be prepared for unfriendly weather, even though, hopefully, it will be nice most of the time. This is a perfect camp for people who like outdoor work and physical challenges.
Within the project we will have educational sessions to learn about green energy, sustainable house-holding, 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. Take part in this promising project and spring into action against climate change!
Accommodatie en maaltijden
The volunteers will stay in a local community building in Thorshofn and/or Bakkafjordur. Mattresses and sheets will be provided, and everyone is asked to bring his/her own warm sleeping bags and towels. The food will be supplied for the duration of the work camp and everyone is expected to do his/her fair share of the cooking/cleaning. It would be nice to try new and different dishes, so please remember to bring along recipes and specialties from your own countries.
Locatie en vrije tijd
Worldwide Friends volunteers have free access to the local geothermal-heated swimming pool in the village. Traditionally, natural pools have played an important social role in Icelandic culture. Some leisure activities will be organized by the local community. The area around the village is also good for hiking so please bring your hiking shoes.
