Volunteers will have environmental educational sessions in different areas in Iceland. 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 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. 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 erosion. Take part in this promising project and spring into action against climate change!
During the camp our teenagers will also have an exploration of photography in the digital age. They will get a hands-on instruction and experience with the tools necessary to research, compose, capture, and refine digital photographic projects. Please notice that we do not have a professional photographer to guide them.
We will also focus on intercultural learning and exchange. Every evening, teenagers from different countries will present their country of origin and culture in an informal way. It can be a presentation, a game, theatre – the form of introduction is up to you! Therefore, we encourage you to bring along some food, spices, photos or anything interesting related to your country for a fun and informative evening among other volunteers.
This camp gives you the opportunity to spend an amazing time in Iceland with other international participants
and to have an incredible experience where participants share their knowledge with each other while exploring creativity, environmental issues and intercultural learning.
