The work will be set up in the Reykjavík Art Museum that is located in the center of Reykjavík. The volunteers will help to set up the beach that will be made of black Icelandic sand in the museum and to take it down after the event. The volunteers will be invited to watch the show and will have the opportunity to participate as actors. Volunteers will also have the chance to join other environmental-related activities, through non-formal means such as workshops, discussions, presentations and visits, as well as to contribute directly to environment protection by joining outdoor cleanup tasks. We aim to also involve the local community, so some of our events may be open to the public. We hope participants will also learn how to plan and do their own trash hunting/collecting projects back home. This project is based on similar activities around the world, where outstanding results have been achieved with volunteers. One of the two following options is also included in this camp as a hands-on volunteering activity day: either a day trip combining a guided tour to the Hellisheiði power station, a trash collection action in the area and the Hot River Hike (a hike up a valley filled with hot springs where one can bathe); or a day trip to the Reykjanes peninsula, combined with a coastal cleanup in the area. The mentioned activities are dependent on conditions such as weather, pandemic-related restrictions, as well as availability of our partner organisations. This camp combines learning, sharing, hands-on work and fun. No previous experience is needed. Volunteers should prepare to share environmental issues from their countries and be ready to spend time outdoors, walk medium distances during the cleanups, as during other activities and sightseeing. As part of the project happens outdoors, volunteers should be ready to adapt and be flexible with the work and free-time schedule, as depending on the changeable weather, we may not be able to perform some of the activities planned.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

SEEDS participants will stay in a house in Reykjavík. The facilities are basic with a kitchen, showers, and a washing machine. Everyone is expected to show consideration for their companions. Participants will sleep in shared rooms or dormitories. Please bring your own sleeping bag. Volunteers will receive food supplies and will be in charge of cooking and cleaning. Please note the food SEEDS provides will be vegetarian. Do not forget to bring some traditional/typical food, drinks, recipes, music, games or movies from your country for the international evening. Please be aware some items or ingredients may be expensive in Iceland and you will need to buy them yourselves or bring them from your country.

Locatie en vrije tijd

Reykjavík is a dynamic, modern city which lives in harmony with nature, using renewable energy sources. The world’s northernmost capital bridges the Atlantic, between Europe and North America. Reykjavík is spread across a peninsula with a panoramic view of the mountains and the Atlantic. It is an international city with a lively cosmopolitan cultural scene surrounded by beautiful nature.


Other excursions (e.g. Golden Circle, the South Shore, Reykjanes and/or Snæfellsnes) can be arranged at discount fares if there is additional free time after the camp work/sessions. It may be very cold and/or rainy, so we recommend bringing warm and waterproof clothes (underlayers, overcoats, scarves, gloves and hats) and good walking shoes, as some of the activities take place outdoors.


Participation fee EUR 300 (Euros). The fee can either be transferred in advance via bank transfer, or paid in cash on arrival. It includes transportation from the meeting point to the camp (on the first day), the visits available; and one trip combined with the trash collection activity (Hot River or Reykjanes).
