The projects of Open Houses are based on sustainable principles. Therefore, the activities at Lohra Castle combine aspects of cultural heritage preservation and aspects of natural heritage preservation. The castle is surrounded by a vast green area and the volunteers will help in the maintenance of it. Near the youth accommodation houses that are part of the Lohra Castle complex there is a camping site which can be used by youth groups, for this reason the area should be made accessible from overgrown grass. The tasks will be mowing and collecting the grass. Additionally, the participants of the project will support the work on renovations on the Castle grounds.
The hilly massive around Lohra Castle is listed as National Nature Reserve. Open Houses supports the Reserve since several years with volunteering activities. In a forest near the Castle the participants will remove trees and bushes which are not corresponding with the protection aims in order to clean the paths and make them enjoyable again. They will also will collect the wood remaining after maintenance works, load it on a truck, unload it at the castle and split and stack it for wintertime or for the fireplace. Besides that, the volunteers will continue the maintenance of the green area at the castle. In addition, in the later part of the summer, they will support the recollection, assortment, splitting and storage of wood to prepare the castle for the harsh winter months.
The volunteers work six hours per day five days a week. The afternoons and evenings can be used for nearby cultural attractions, games, group activities, campfires and other similar things. On the weekends the volunteers have the opportunity to visit nearby places.

Kost og logi

ACCOMMODATION
In most of Open Houses' camps the volunteers will live at the same places they also work on, what means that they live more or less on a building site. In most of the Heritage Volunteers Projects the accommodation is located in a certain distance to the working site. The accommodation is usually very simple; there are shared rooms with simple beds or mattresses at most of the places. Shower, toilet and kitchen are at the place, but sometimes not in the same building. The equipment is simple but fair. After work, when everybody wants to take a shower, there can be a limit of hot water.

FOOD
The meals will be prepared together as they are part of the community life, what means that every participant will be responsible for the meal at least once during its stay. So it would be very nice if the participants could bring typical recipes from home in order to introduce each other to the preparation of food from all over the world.

FINANCES
All costs linked to the project are covered, including food, accommodation, insurance and transportation during the stay at the project. Travel costs to and from the camp place are not covered. Participants should organise their journey to and from the project place by themselves and on their own expenses. Furthermore, participants should bring their own pocket money.

Beliggenhed og fritid

Lohra Castle is situated in the heart of Germany in Northern Thuringia. The castle, which is surrounded by a scenic hilly landscape, is located on the edge of a natural reserve area. Being one of the largest castles in Thuringia, the history of castle Lohra begins in the Middle Ages. It
s architectural styles which have been preserved in the structures of the ensemble attest to a prolonged period of occupation and historical evolution up until today.

The castle is more than thousand years old, and it is a relic of German medieval past that is still standing at the heart of a region through which the story of the German nation has been written. Today, it includes twenty buildings from different time periods, showcasing this historical evolution to the enchantment of visitors and heritage enthusiasts: medieval fortifications, remnants of a tower from the 11th century, a Romanesque double-floored chapel, a manor house from the Renaissance period as well as stables and granaries from the 19th and the early 20th centuries. The ensemble is situated in the centre of a beautiful forest.

For years Lohra Castle was vacant. In the 1990s a civil society association which became today’s Open Houses, began to rescue the castle and to revitalise it through cultural activities. The process of rehabilitation of cultural heritage not only brought new life and use to an otherwise forgotten monument, but it also provided with a new space where young people could reconnect with tangible heritage while valorising the relevance of preserving a historical monument. Since then, a large number of international workcamps, heritage volunteering projects, heritage training courses, seminars, exhibitions, concerts and other activities with international participants have been taking place every year in the castle.

Arrangeret af

Open Houses are more than just empty buildings. They're places steeped in history, both obvious and hidden. These are places that have been around for centuries, shaped by those who lived there long ago and those who left recently. They're spaces where dreams and ideas thrive, where people from different backgrounds, cultures, and ages can come together to share and connect.
The history of Open Houses Network began in the mid-1980s when a group of young people in East Germany decided to restore village churches as volunteers to prevent them from falling into disrepair. Their efforts breathed new life into these spaces, hosting exhibitions, concerts, and gatherings that went beyond mere restoration work.
Today, while there's less need for places free from political pressure, it's still hard to find spots where people can meet without commercial agendas or bureaucratic hurdles. The balance between public engagement and private life is tricky to navigate, requiring constant effort to cut through red tape and financial constraints.
The idea of shared public spaces is fading, with fewer places available for collective work. The Open Houses Network aims to change that. We're not just doers; we're visionaries who want to create and protect spaces where people can come together, collaborate, and make a difference. Our projects and events are invitations for everyone to get involved, to make space for commitment, change, and connection.

The Vercors Regional Nature Park stretches across a vast mid-mountain massif between Isère and Drôme. Come and discover it, and the village of Autrans-Méaudre en Vercors. Its landscapes will take you on a journey. The project will involve restoring a shelter known as "La Bergerie", located on the edge of a footpath and a mountain bike trail. The exact history of this site deserves to be known, as it would appear that in the past this vast area was grazed by sheep. Meadows replaced the present-day forest and there was indeed a sheepfold here, but we're investigating with local residents to find out more.Your job will be to clear the undergrowth around the shelter and consolidate it by working on the masonry. No previous knowledge is necessary. A good dose of motivation and the desire to work as part of a team will enable you to complete this project.

Kost og logi

You will then have to walk for 10 minutes on an accessible path, but with some gradients. The group will be supervised at all times by a team in charge of group life and technical aspects, in liaison with our local partners, in particular the eco-guards from the PNR Vercors. Together, you will help to organise group life (housework, activities, etc.) and take turns preparing meals using locally sourced produce. We will use local produce and short distribution channels as much as possible, and will ensure that all participants' diets are respected.

The work will be mostly environmental and constructional. The idea is to help renovate a house that is serving as a volunteering centre in which it will be established environmental-friendly and sustainable agriculture in the gardens in the future.

La Casa Jazmín is recently renovated but there are still some pending tasks to complete. Volunteers will carry out some basic tasks like painting, throwing out extra materials and organising spaces.
Apart from the house renovation tasks, this project will have lots of different other tasks for the volunteers. We are collaborating with the local organisations in the towns around and they always need help from our volunteers. As we are organising the tasks according to the actual needs of the town, the work that you will do during the camp will vary but mainly will be about renovating, painting, organising spaces, decorating and doing environmental cleanings, trash pick up from the hiking paths or beaches etc.

There are 5 Caza Jazmin camps starting from the end of June to end of August and once one task is over, the volunteers will pass to the other one and we can not guarantee in which camp you will be doing what task as it will be depending on the previous group`s speed.
This project is reserved for the Belgian association Boworde, the remaining places will be offered to the rest.

Kost og logi

Your help is needed with various forest and nature conservation tasks: Firstly, you will be informed about the ecological relationships between forests, wildlife and climate change. Climate change has already had a dramatic impact on the forest in recent years. Many trees have died due to drought, bark beetles and storms. To preserve the forests, many hundreds of thousands of young trees are planted every year. You will help to protect and care for these young trees, e.g. by pruning them, but also by helping to create irrigation opportunities and set protective gates. A second focus is on nature conservation work, be it the maintenance of forest meadows, the selection of habitat trees or the maintenance of forest edges.
Important: During the workcamp, the work in the forest may change depending on the weather.

Kost og logi

Accomodation: community centre in Allendorf
Food: You cook together. Money for the food shopping is provided to you. Vegetarian or vegan meals are possible. Please indicate any allergies when registering.

“Overseas” is a non-profit association and NGO established in Spilamberto (Modena, Italy) in 1971 to promote the global development of communities in non-European countries through volunteering and international cooperation, support of local organisations and groups, and solidarity for children and young people in need.
Over the years, the association has taken part in numerous initiatives to promote information and raise awareness on global citizenship issues and has always paid close attention to the issue of the imbalance between an abundance of resources and situations of need, considering the different contexts in which they occur, both internationally and locally.
The work camp takes place at the association's headquarter, which consists of a residential unit and a shed located in a large green area on the outskirts of the village. Participants will stay in the Overseas House and carry out their service in the facilities and spaces originally used as a community-school dedicated to training in agriculture, and now used to promote reuse and recycling.
The participants will stay in the Overseas House and will carry out the service partly in the premises and spaces used for the promotion of reuse recycling and in the surrounding green area.
The participants will have the opportunity to approach experiences that try to promote the culture of sustainability in the dimension of daily life: intercultural living together, moderation of consumption, taking care of the environment and of the community.

The participants will have the opportunity to approach experiences that try to promote the culture of sustainability in the dimension of daily life: intercultural living together, moderation of consumption, taking care of the environment and of the community.
At the start of the camp, possible activities will be presented and a work plan will be defined together with the participants according to their capacities, abilities and desire to learn new things. A collaboration of the participants also near the other locations in the area, in which social farming experiences are carried out in contact with overseas, are also planned.
An integral part of the camp is respect for the environment, values, traditions and ways of living in the Overseas House in which other people reside and the association's activities are carried out. An extra dose of empathy, understanding and adaptability is required of everyone in order to experience multicultural dialogue!

Arbejde

The rectory garden was full of woody plants, dry trees and things that time has brought and is surrounded by ruins of buildings without much historical value. The long-term goal is to restore the garden and instead build an open, living community garden that will be used year-round by the local community as a space for relaxation, community meetings and cultural events, especially with environmental content. Volunteers will help with the landscaping of the garden, construction of a fire pit, establishment of garden elements, removal of woody plants in the area of the future sports field, and sorting of construction materials. In case of heavy rain, volunteers will clean the unused part of the rectory. Most of the work will be outside and manual, so bring suitable clothes and shoes appropriate for work, long sleeves and pants are recommended.

Kost og logi

Volunteers will sleep directly in the rectory in two renovated rooms on sleeping mats. There are 4 toilets, 2 showers, a small but well-equipped kitchen and a washing machine. WIFI is available. You will need to bring a sleeping bag and a pillow. You can also bring an inflatable mat for better comfort. Lunch will be provided by a local partner.

These paths are very important because each of them leads to old mills and ethnographic sites. Moreover, being near to a natural park they are used by excursionists. Volunteers

will have to cut and collect the grass, remove shrubs and assist local volunteers’ groups who are going to collaborate to the maintenance of the woods. In the period of time in which the camp will take place, some running competitions in the area are programmed.

Volunteers might be asked to signalize the paths and assist the organization of the competitions.

Classé monument historique depuis 1931, ce site fascinant fut jadis une forteresse redoutable, à la croisée des routes commerciales.Depuis trois ans, une poignée de bénévoles passionnés, venus des quatre coins du monde, œuvre à la renaissance de ce joyau oublié. En luttant contre la végétation qui l'envahissait, ils ont dégagé les ruines, tracé des chemins et offert à nouveau au village et à son église du XIIème siècle une vue imprenable. Rejoignez-nous et contribuez à cette aventure extraordinaire !

The workcamp will take place in the commune of Pont-de-Montvert, near Mont-Lozère in the heart of the Cévennes. The aim of the project is to help build a new town square. This square has historically been home to sports facilities, in particular the former tennis courts in the village. However, since the closure of the tennis courts, this space has been more or less left to its own devices, serving as a parking lot and occasional storage area. Since 2018, the commune has planted trees, hedges and installed a playground for the village's children. Your mission : to continue beautifying and transforming this square so that it becomes a place for village gatherings and activities.

Your mission on the international volunteer workcamp: to take care of these two local heritage features. Accompanied by a professional in traditional masonry, you and your team will help the oven to get back to its former glory: cleaning the inside of the building, rebuilding pretty stone benches and re-pointing the walls. You'll soon get the hang of it! As for the spring, you'll be needed for a complete clean-up: emptying the bottom of the basin, cleaning the stones in the washhouse, disbursing and covering with pebbles the small square in front of the washhouse to make it pleasant and accessible to all. In addition to this work, you'll reflect together on sustainable development through the use of traditional techniques in the restoration of the oven and the basin, but also in the daily life of the group. You'll have the opportunity to present the progress you've made to the local population and tourists. It's a chance to meet young people your own age from all over the world, and to take part in a meaningful project!

La source aura quant à elle besoin de toi pour un nettoyage complet : vider le fond du bassin, nettoyer les pierres du lavoir, décaisser et couvrir de galets la placette devant le lavoir pour la rendre agréable et praticable pour tous. Au-delà de ces travaux, vous réfléchirez ensemble au développement durable via l’utilisation de techniques traditionnelles dans la restauration de la forteresse, mais aussi dans la vie quotidienne du groupe. Tu auras l’occasion de présenter à la population locale et aux touristes les avancées auxquelles tu auras participé. C'est l'occasion de rencontrer des jeunes de ton âge venus du monde entier et de participer à un projet qui a du sens !

The small village of Fontanges lies at the heart of the Auvergne Volcanoes Natural Park. In this unspoilt valley, hikers come to explore the trails around Puy Mary, Europe's largest volcano, and to take part in the many events that the village offers in summer: local producers' markets, village balls, concerts, traditional dance demonstrations, bread festival.... The hamlet of Chastrade lies on the plateau above the village; along one of its streets, a traditional bread oven tells the story of a long tradition of festivities, evening gatherings and storytelling by the fireside, and good bread baked over a wood fire for locals and passing walkers. A little further on, the hamlet's spring provides water for hikers and refreshment for cattle.

Le petit village de Fontanges se situe au cœur du parc naturel des volcans d'Auvergne. Dans cette vallée en pleine nature, les randonneurs viennent parcourir les chemins autour du Puy Mary, le plus grand volcan d'Europe,e t participer aux nombreuses animations que le village propose en été : marchés de producteurs locaux, bals de village, concerts, démonstrations de danses traditionnelles, fête du pain.... Le hameau de Chastrade se situe sur le plateau au-dessus du village ; le long d'une de ses rues, un four à pain traditionnel raconte l'histoire d'une longue tradition de fêtes, de veillées et de contes le soir au coin du feu, et d'un bon pain cuit au feu de bois pour les habitants et les marcheurs de passage. Un peu plus loin, la source du hameau permet aux randonneurs de se ravitailler en eau et aux troupeaux de se rafraîchir.
