Werk

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 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. 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! 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 amongst 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.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

The participants will travel around Iceland and stay in two different places – Brú in the North west and Stodvarfjordur in the East. Brú - Worldwide Friends Iceland centre of environment and sustainability is near to the crossroads to the West, South and North of Iceland. The centre called BRÚ is in Hrutafjordur which is a 36 km long fjord in Hunathing vestra. In the neighborhood you can find a lot of pure and unspoiled nature, beaches full of driftwood, glaciers in the highlands, waterfalls, strong rivers, canyons and craters. The purpose of the centre is to protect the nature in the area and to raise the awareness of sustainability among the locals and the visitors which are coming to the area. The house is more than 1.000 m² and has 16 double rooms, two kitchens, several bathrooms and common areas, rooms for workshops and galleries. It has its own generator to produce electricity for heating and daily use. Stodvarfjordur: Scoured by Ice Age glaciers, the dramatic east coast boasts long, narrow fjords with steep sides and jagged peaks which contrast with inland fertile farmlands. Natural harbours depict postcard-like fishing villages and seemingly never-ending roads cross the region, providing beautiful views. “Fjarðabyggð" is an association of villages in the Eastern fjords of Iceland. It includes the towns of Eskifjörður, Fáskrúðsfjörður, Mjóifjörður, Neskaupstaður, Reyðarfjörður, Breiðdalsvík and Stöðvarfjörður, all tiny fishing villages with steep mountains towering just behind the houses. In this area you will see some of the features that make Iceland a unique place in the world: spectacular fjords with a rich sea life, a great variety of birdlife and countless breath-taking hiking paths. You will explore the area during your stay in the east. Worldwide Friends teenagers will be staying in the WF houses in Brú and Stodvarfjordur. The houses have several dormitories, big living room and fully equipped kitchen, showers and toilets. Beds are provided; however, volunteers should bring their own warm sleeping bags or borrow one from WF if they don’t want to bring it. Wireless internet access is provided free of charge. Food is included for the duration of the camp, 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 from home!

Locatie en vrije tijd

The participants will travel all around Iceland and they will also do some leisure activities for example hiking and going to different swimming pools in Iceland. The areas are also good for hiking, so please bring your hiking shoes.
