Werk

We will be working with GFF which is one of the leading environmental organization in south Iceland. The purpose of the association is to prevent the soil erosion around the capital area of Reykjavik and to make the eco system stronger and sustainable. To reach those goals GFF is planting natural species to restore lost land and at the same time create an environment that people in the capital area can enjoy in the future. The area of Reykjanes peninsula is very volcanic and full of lava fields, because of the that the vegetation is very poor in some places and a lot of need to revegetate the areas. We will help GFF to do that work. You can find further information is their website http://www.gff.is

Within the project we will have educational sessions to 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 must understand the issues and tasks first.
Our work will depend on weather conditions, which is why we must be flexible. You should be prepared for unfriendly weather, but hopefully, the weather will be nice most of the time. This is a perfect camp for people who like outdoor work and physical challenges. Working hours are about 6 to 7 hours a day, 5 days a week.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

Worldwide Friends volunteers stay in a community building offering basic sleeping and cooking facilities. Volunteers need to bring their own sleeping bag and towels, but mattresses and bed linens are provided. Wireless internet access is provided free of charge. The accommodation is located within short walking distance of many urban amenities, including banks, pharmacies, supermarkets, public swimming pools, restaurants, cafes, libraries, theatres, shops, museums, and bus stations.Food is included for the duration of the workcamp, however, everyone is expected to do their fair share of the cooking and cleaning. Since it is always nice to try new and different dishes, volunteers are encouraged to bring along their favourite recipes (and spices) from home

Locatie en vrije tijd

There are two excursions included in the project fee - The Golden Circle South Iceland excursion and The Snæfellsnes peninsula excursion. Worldwide Friends volunteers have free access to the local geothermal-heated swimming pool in Hafnarfjordur. Traditionally, natural pools have played an important social role in Icelandic culture. Most Icelandic pools offer indoor and outdoor swimming, as well as hot tubs and saunas or steam rooms.
WF Iceland will also organise other reasonably-priced weekend excursions to some of the most popular, beautiful areas and natural wonders that Iceland has to offer. Excursions include unique Icelandic sights such as glacial lagoons, waterfalls, volcanic and geothermal areas, glaciers, geysers, lava forests, hot-springs, rhyolite mountain ranges, steam-vents, or even icebergs.
