We invite volunteers from the post-Soviet region and interested people from Germany to join us in learning more about political systems and the current human rights situation in the countries concerned as well as about national and international human rights movements. After the work camp, you are welcome to support our activities against dictatorship regimes and for democracy and the rule of law. Besides creative workshops and informative lectures, there will also be a cultural and entertainment programme (walks, film evenings, concerts and much more). Study part: Participants will learn from the history of the human rights movement and its efforts against human rights violations using the example of different countries. We will exchange experiences about different forms of action for human rights. As the work camp will be held in English and there will be contact with native German speakers, the work camp is a good opportunity to improve language skills.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

Accommodation will be in tents and we will cook vegetarian food together. You will need clothes for all weather conditions, basic camping equipment with tent, sleeping bag, sleeping mat, sunscreen. Please try to bring your own tent, otherwise we need to communicate about.

Locatie en vrije tijd

There will be plenty of time for getting to know each other and personal exchange. You can expect an exciting time of working, learning and having fun together in the great outdoors. You can meet committed people of different ages and experience a unique atmosphere of life in a very diverse community. You will get to know a part of the beautiful federal state of Baden-Württemberg.


We are representatives of four communities from Belarus, Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine who live in Baden-Württemberg and actively work for human rights and freedom in these respective countries. For this project we are cooperating with the Peace Workshop Mutlangen. After more than 30 years of dictatorship regimes and last big attempts of regime change in our three countries, we feel the need to organise a common meeting to exchange our experiences in activism and non-violent successful resistance. We want to reflect on our newly formed joint cooperation and plan further actions until the end of the year and talk about the goals. New ideas and opinions that you bring to the work camp are very valuable for us. What have we achieved so far? From the end of January to the end of March, we have held three protests in Stuttgart. On March, 29th we are offered a panel discussion on the situation in our countries together with the project In addition, an art exhibition on torture in Kazakhstan and Belarus is planned in cities of Baden-Württemberg in the coming months. Falsified elections, mass repression, detentions, torture in prisons, convictions, danger of killing are the reasons why regime change does not happen in these countries, although the population shows its willingness to do so with mass protests. The dictatorial regimes work because they stir up fear, propaganda and censorship. They don't want people to think about exercising the right to freedom of assembly and participation.


Please try to bring your own tent and sleeping bag, otherwise we need to communicate about. According to the current regulations, we can only accept volunteers, who are either fully vaccinated (2 to 3 shots of one of the following vaccines: BioNtech/Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca or Johnson&Johnson, Novavax) or recovered (date of infection must be max 180 days old). We will make tests in the beginning and during the workcamp.
