Wer organisiert das Projekt?

This virtual workcamp is organized by the university of “Santo Tomas”, and the main objective is to help to develop the program “Fill a bottle of love” that consists in find alternatives to reuse of micro plastics in Colombia, and the main goal of this project consists of filling little bottles of love, understood as plastic bottles of any size, in which the micro-plastics that humans commonly use in everyday life will be deposited, in order to reduce our carbon footprint. In this way, the goal for this call is to collect 40 tons of plastic within a term of 13 days in the state of Boyaca in Colombia.
The volunteer will collaborate in the distance to develop an investigative work that will help to determine the legal and socio-cultural figures that can serve to reduce the use of plastic in Colombia.

Arbeit

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!

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

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!

Lage und Freizeit

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.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

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!
