Work

What will we be working on together? SEEDS camp leaders will be creating opportunities for you to focus on different current environmental and sustainability issues through a selection of workshops and activities online. One of our aims is to help create more environmentally aware consumers and travellers. During this camp participants can share their love for (and learn more about) global and local environmental topics such as climate change, waste management, sustainable solutions. There will be two to three different sessions each day. As each of our camp leaders have focused on specific topics according to their knowledge and experiences, the sessions we offer can be arranged with the participants based on what they are more interested in and can include: ● Plant-based cooking & vegetarian baking classes ● DIY natural self-care or cleaning products tips ● DIY repurposing plastic bottles/used products workshops ● Everyday eco-friendly habits workshops ● Overall Iceland introduction and Iceland-related environmental issues workshops ● Presentations about the effects of tourism and slow-travel tips ● Presentations about the problems of fashion industry and clothes upcycling tips ● Presentations about climate change and how to face deniers ● Presentations about permaculture and urban agriculture ● Fun and interesting environmental quizzes and documentaries Note that this project is a learning/sharing camp, so we encourage everyone to share their knowledge and participate actively in this learning process. We also encourage our participants to create and share presentations about their countries, as our leaders will do the same. This is a great way to meet new people from all over the world, so you can exchange ideas, experiences, language, music, recipes and much more with the other online volunteers, just as in a regular workcamp. Bring your own ideas and let’s be creative together!

Accomodation and food

Your own home! It might not be a brand new experience, but hey, you might be missing out on sharing a room with the whole workcamp group or having to make a schedule for the showers. Is that really so bad...? Plus, in our virtual camp, you might have a chance to see how different homes all over the world look!

Location and leisure

This camp takes place online. It is accessible to everybody with a working internet connection. No borders, no visa, no need to travel, so you are saving CO2 emissions which is better for our beautiful planet! While it is important to keep physical distance at the moment, we can create social proximity in the digital world. We believe that especially in times as challenging as these, it is important to raise our voices for solidarity and international friendship. International workcamps were created 100 years ago to work towards mutual understanding, peace and solidarity beyond borders. Let’s keep this spirit and find new ways to get to know and support each other. These virtual camps are organised as an effort to keep up international volunteering, even if most of us cannot travel right now.

Over the past year, all the changes connected to COVID-19 have posed new challenges to all of us. Many workcamps had to be cancelled. Volunteers who were excited to work in an intercultural group in a foreign country could not make it to their camps and many of us were forced to stay within their own houses for months. However, not only bad things came out of this. During lockdown we started to host our first virtual camps and learnt that online meetings are a great way of connecting with people all across the world and promoting our ideals and environmental awareness, even without meeting physically. Join us in this virtual camp to volunteer and learn in a different way!

Work

This is the fourteenth year (since 2008) that SEEDS organises a series of International Photo marathons, while we started organising camps open for teenagers in the year 2010. Throughout the year participants from all over the world come to Iceland for an immersive photography-related learning camp. SEEDS coordinators help the participants to develop their unique photographic skills through workshops and feedback sessions on technical settings, compositional considerations as well as developing conceptual frameworks which progress the participants’ individual style. Participants will have time to put the theory about photography into practice, walking around and exploring the city. At the end of the camp, the best photographs from each participant are selected for an online exhibition on SEEDS' social media. Participants should bring their own digital cameras, lenses, tripods and laptops if possible. While learning about photography the participants explore Icelandic culture by taking part in it, capturing it and also by displaying their work during the camps. One of our objectives is to deliver environmental as well as cultural messages and draw the attention through pictures made in the camp. Participants should be ready to spend time outdoors walking medium distances during activities and working within a flexible time schedule. Participants will be photographing in their free time outside of workshop hours with images to be discussed at group feedback sessions. This camp is open to participants aged 16 to 20 years. During their stay SEEDS organises a programme that combines learning, sharing, getting to know Iceland and its culture, and having fun while exploring the city and some of the most stunning natural attractions in the Golden Circle and South Shore excursions. Note this project is a learning/sharing camp and not a regular workcamp; it has a smaller work part and puts more emphasis on the personal learning process than on the community impact. We may be able to organise some outdoor voluntary work, but it depends on our partners and the weather. The camp happens around the summer solstice, when the sun hardly sets and the nights are almost as bright as the days. The nights are magical and staying awake enjoying the surroundings is a unique experience.

Accomodation and food

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. They need to bring their own sleeping bags. Participants from other camps may also stay in the house. Participants will receive food supplies and be in charge of the cooking and cleaning activities. Participants should bring food, music, games or films and such from their own culture to share at the international evening.

Location and leisure

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.

Hot River Hike, Snæfellsnes or Reykjanes Peninsula) can be arranged at discount fares in case there is additional free time after the workshops and sessions of the camp.

Requirements

Work

Landscaping in great surroundings and sightseeing in the big city! You can experience both of these things in this camp on the outskirts of the metropolis of Hamburg. Amongst other things, you will be working in the Heuckenlock nature reserve, an area of around 100 hectares of tidal forests and freshwater mud flats in the south of Hamburg's Elbe island, Wilhelmsburg. The area stretches 3km along the north bank of the South Elbe and is flooded about a hundred times a year by spring and storm tides. Due to its special location between the river and the countryside, and its freshwater tides that are unique within Europe, the Heuckenlock nature reserve is an important refuge for many plant and animal species that have long since been displaced by the cultivation of the landscape in other areas. It is the most biodiverse nature reserve in the Hamburg region. In order to preserve the mudflats and the banks of the Elbe as valuable natural and living spaces, you will be removing foreign plants from nature reserves Heuckenlock, Schweenssand and Auenlandschaft Obere Tideelbe under the guidance of employees of the Tidal Elbe Information Centre. The plants you will be removing are mainly Japanese knotweed. This process will be done with both hands and spades. This workcamp offers a great opportunity to get to know the Elbe from a completely different perspective. As a change from this strenuous and monotonous work, you will also be clearing up the accumulated rubbish in these areas. In addition to the practical work, you will learn a lot from the employees of the Tidal Elbe Information Centre about nature and environmental protection in general, as well as the nature and habitat of freshwater tides and their protection in particular. You will learn a lot about the local flora and fauna, the tides and their effects, as well as dikes and flood protection.

Work

If you are enthusiastic about nature and protecting the environment, the come to the Märkische Schweiz Nature Park: 40km to the east of Berlin, the park not only offers unique natural landscapes, but also the backdrop to our project. By working together with the park’s administration team and the Drei Eichen environmental education centre, you will not only get to know the park and its surroundings, but you will also play an active role in shaping it. There will also be young people from the local area on-site. People and pets live on the grounds of the Environmental Education Center “Three Oaks” - and often many guests: children, families, seminar groups. Together with you we want to build some roofs as rain protection - for the summer kitchen in the tipi village and for the storage of wood and construction material. For activities in between “Three Oaks “ (Drei Eichen) with its terrain offers many opportunities to learn about plants and animals, nature conservation and alternative ways of life and to actively participate. In different nature areas in the nature park Märkische Schweiz we will carry out landscape conservation work together on several days. In doing so, we will ensure the protection of the native plants that grow there. Historically, these sites were created and maintained by a lot of manual labor - mowing adapted to the season and grazing by sheep and goats. In our workcamp, we help with that. We also renew sections of hiking trails. All work will take place outdoors. Besides this, there will be a diverse programme of environmental educational activities for you to take part in! http://www.dreichen.de/

Accomodation and food

You will be staying in shared rooms in the “Drei Eichen” (Three Oaks) environmental education centre, which is located in the middle of a forest, around 4km away from Buckow (www.dreichen.de). The group will prepare and cook meals together.

Location and leisure

Educational Activities: You could take a GPS tour of the nature park, go on a guided walking tour on the topic of “biological diversity”, visit the bat museum, go swimming in the various nearby lakes, visit local cinemas and bars. In Buckow, there is a campfire place where you can sit around at night, a climbing wall and also a canoe hire in the nearby area.

Additional comments

Please bring weatherproof working clothes (with long sleeves and full-length trousers) with you, since you’ll be working outdoors.

Work

This is the fourteenth year (since 2008) that SEEDS organises a series of International Photo marathons, while we started organising camps open for teenagers in the year 2010. Throughout the year participants from all over the world come to Iceland for an immersive photography-related learning camp. SEEDS coordinators help the participants to develop their unique photographic skills through workshops and feedback sessions on technical settings, compositional considerations as well as developing conceptual frameworks which progress the participants’ individual style. Participants will have time to put the theory about photography into practice, walking around and exploring the city. At the end of the camp, the best photographs from each participant are selected for an online exhibition on SEEDS' social media. Participants should bring their own digital cameras, lenses, tripods and laptops if possible. While learning about photography the participants explore Icelandic culture by taking part in it, capturing it and also by displaying their work during the camps. One of our objectives is to deliver environmental as well as cultural messages and draw the attention through pictures made in the camp. Participants should be ready to spend time outdoors walking medium distances during activities and working within a flexible time schedule. Participants will be photographing in their free time outside of workshop hours with images to be discussed at group feedback sessions. This camp is open to participants aged 16 to 20 years. During their stay SEEDS organises a programme that combines learning, sharing, getting to know Iceland and its culture, and having fun while exploring the city and some of the most stunning natural attractions in the Golden Circle and South Shore excursions. Note this project is a learning/sharing camp and not a regular workcamp; it has a smaller work part and puts more emphasis on the personal learning process than on the community impact. We may be able to organise some outdoor voluntary work, but it depends on our partners and the weather. The camp happens around the summer solstice, when the sun hardly sets and the nights are almost as bright as the days. The nights are magical and staying awake enjoying the surroundings is a unique experience.

Accomodation and food

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. They need to bring their own sleeping bags. Participants from other camps may also stay in the house. Participants will receive food supplies and be in charge of the cooking and cleaning activities. Participants should bring food, music, games or films and such from their own culture to share at the international evening.

Location and leisure

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.

Work

Are you interested in archaeology and historical craftsmanship? Then this is the camp for you. You can participate in setting up the archaeological open-air museum “Zeiteninsel” (Times Island). Numerous settlement remains from all prehistoric cultural periods have been discovered in the Lahn valley near to the Niederweimar and Argenstein areas. The extensive archaeological evidence proves that there has been a constant settlement in the region for millennia. The first archaeological open-air museum on the history of settlements in the region of Hessen is being set up here in order to display the rich archaeological discoveries. There will be 5 stations on the grounds of the museum, each dedicated to a certain cultural time period with the associated buildings, farmland and natural vegetation. You will be involved in the completion of a residential stable from the late Bronze Age (around 1000 BC). In such a house, almost 20 m long and around 6-8 m wide, a large family or clan together with their animals probably lived. Under professional guidance from a team on-site, you will learn how the house walls are built from wickerwork and clay. You may also have the opportunity to try out ancient techniques such as grinding grain/corn, lighting a fire (without a lighter), archery, or bronze casting.

Accomodation and food

You will be staying in a local youth centre in Wolfshausen. The group will prepare and cook meals together.

Location and leisure

You will be staying in Wolfhausen, a district of Weimar (Lahn). It is very rural, but there is a train station in Niederweimar from which you can reach the university town of Marburg, with its numerous attractions, in just 7 minutes. Besides this, major cities such as Frankfurt and Kassel are also very easily reachable by train. If you haven't had your fill of archaeology after working, you could also visit the “Römerkastell Saalburg” archaeological open-air museum near to Frankfurt.

Additional comments

There is an additional administration fee of 50 € for participants who are not from Germany.

Requirements

The work involved could sometimes be physically demanding. This camp is designed for participants who are interested in archaeology and historical craftsmanship.
