Arbejde

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 participants of the Workcamps carry out works in the green areas and the forests around the castle, restoration work and collaboration in renovation works.

Kost og logi

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. 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.

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 nature reserve area. Being one of the largest castles in Thuringia, the history of the castle Lohra begins in the Middle Age. The castle is more than 1,000 years old. Today, it includes twenty buildings from different times: medieval fortifications, remnants of a tower from the 11th century, a Romanesque 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 Open Houses started to restore the castle and to revive it by cultural activities. Since that time, a large number of Workcamps, Building Weeks, exhibitions, concerts and other activities with international participants took place in the castle.

Arrangeret af

Open Houses – rooms open for those who come along. Open Houses – not empty buildings, but places with visible and invisible traces of history, places which have grown and decayed over the centuries, places which were shaped by those people who lived there long ago as well those who left only yesterday – places which will be shaped by those who live there or who come as a guest. Open Houses – rooms which want to be filled with dreams and ideas, with meetings and exchange, by people of different backgrounds, different cultures, different generations and different ideas and visions. The history of Open Houses Network dates back to the mid-1980s, when a group of young people started to restore village churches in East Germany in voluntary work to protect them from decay. The engagement for these buildings united people who enjoyed the freedom these activities provided and who filled these rooms with life again in ways which by far exceed the craftsmen's work done – through exhibitions, concerts, making music together or just sitting by the camp fire. Meanwhile, rooms free of political and ideological pressure are no longer urgently required; however, places have become rare where people can meet without commercial pressure, free of bureaucracy and institutionalism, free of nepotism and the exclusion which it produces. What should be easy – to go somewhere in order to meet people and to work together – has become difficult. The tightrope walk between, on the one hand, public activities in a monetary and functional sense, and the retreat into private life on the other, is very difficult, and it requires a lot of power and permanent efforts to tackle red tape and financial restrictions. Free spaces are less and less understood as common property, and are permanently being cut back. The idea of public property seems to have gone out of fashion, and places of common responsible work have become rare. Open Houses Network tries to create and protect such spaces. In this process, we do not want to be the doers, but be people who have a vision, who want to initiate something, but who also are aware of depending on the co-operation of others. We understand our projects and events as offers – as offers to create space for commitment, for changes, for meetings.

*** VERSION EN FRANCAIS DISPONIBLE EN FIN DE DESCRIPTION *** *** French version at the end of the description *** Come and discover the Hautes Alpes by participating in the creation of a high altitude permaculture garden at the Serre-Chevalier Hostel! Located in the heart of the small village of Bez, the Hostel of Serre-Chevalier advocates a sustainable and solidarity-based tourism in a durable and eco-responsible development approach. The establishment is very active in the creation of local partnerships in line with its values of intercultural openness and international exchanges. It is campaigning with a group of non-profit organizations and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in order to open a reception center for asylum seekers near the Hostel. The idea is to create a permaculture garden on unexploited land in front of the hostel. It is in this context that a first workcamp of volunteers will be welcomed in order to start creating this garden. It will eventually host workshops for migrants to enable them to acquire new skills in permaculture, to obtain local production for the hostel and for people involved in the management of the garden, to create activities around ecological cooking... This summer, you will lay the foundations of the garden by setting up a system to collect rain and runoff water, building wooden structures for future planting patch, delimiting plots and planting farmers’ seeds in accordance with the principles of permaculture. The project will be supervised by someone experienced in the field and having already knowledge of the possibilities of this type of garden in a mountain environment.

Kost og logi

You will be accommodated at the Youth Hostel, in dormitories with individual beds (remember to bring your sleeping bag). Sanitary facilities and showers will be in the rooms or on the landing. Breakfast will be prepared every morning by the Youth Hostel. Lunch and dinner will be prepared collectively in the kitchen of the building. In coherence with the project, we will privilege local and seasonal products for the preparation of the meals. You may see the customers of the Youth Hostel which will reinforce the exchanges with people.

Beliggenhed og fritid

In an exceptional surrounding, in the heart of the Hautes-Alpes and a few enclaves of the Italian border, at nearly 1500 meters in height, we let you to discover a territory very rich for its natural and cultural assets.

Arrangeret af

ProjectEstonian Fund for Nature (ELF) is NGO dedicated to nature conservation. Its mission is to preserve endangered species and their habitats, natural landscapes and natural associations typical of Estonia. ELF organizes yearly nature conservation holidays where volunteers, participants and group managers work together in order to improve the living conditions of a certain species (i.e. natter jack toad, black stork) or maintain semi-natural communities. You can read more on http://elfond.ee/en and see photos of volunteering camps 2019 and 2020: http://www.talgud.ee/galerii/2019 , http://www.talgud.ee/galerii/2020 The aim of this camp is the surveillance of the western capercaillie (Tetrao urogallus) and other Galliformes in Estonian mires and forests in the North-East of Estonia.The western capercaillie (Tetrao urogallus) is the largest Galliform in Europe. The male and female differ in colorization and size, whereby the hens are around 40 smaller than the cocks. The population of males in Estonia is about 1500 and the numbers are declining due to the loss of habitats. The surveillance and counting of specimens helps to evaluate the status of the species and take further action in its protection.North-East Estonia is a region of contrast. It is the largest industrial (oil shale) region of Estonia, spiked with underground mines and ruined landscapes. However, it is also the home to Alutaguse, the largest forestry region, and the newest National Park of Estonia. North-East Estonia has an interesting combination of industrial mining towns from the Soviet era, small villages along the coast of Lake Peipus, and endless wilderness. NB It is possible to combine both shifts of this project.

Arbejde

Conservation work with sheep and cattle in great surroundings and sightseeing in the big city! Both of these can be experienced during this camp on the outskirts of the metropolis of Hamburg. You will be working in the Hoeltigbaum nature reserve, a former training ground. A varied mosaic of different habitats has developed on the nature reserve since the last Ice Age. As a result, different successional stages of open soils, grass or mule corridors, and even some shrubs, can be found here, along with many rare and endangered animal and plant species. Where there used to be tanks, there is now vast, savannah-like grassland. Today there are sheep herds, goats and Galloway cattle in the area grazing all year round. Through this grazing, the areas are kept open, bushes are prevented from overgrowing and the biodiversity is preserved. You will support the animal "lawnmowers" at work and remove foreign plants such as bracken, lupins, Jacob's ragwort or small birch trees in order to prepare the ground for the underlying and displaced heather. Through this action you will be making an important contribution to nature conservation work, since using heavy equipment for the same tasks would destroy the heath. The work will take place on the pastures in the nature reserve. If you are lucky, you will see the cattle and sheep at work too. In addition to the practical work, you will learn a lot from the “Haus der Wilden Weiden” employees: about nature and environmental protection in general, and the nature conservation concept of a semi-open pasture landscape in particular. You will also learn a lot about the local flora and fauna, about year-round grazing as well as cattle and sheep farming in the field of landscape maintenance. More information (unfortunately only in German) about the Hoeltigbaum nature reserve and the “Haus der Wilden Weiden” can be found here: www.hoeltigbaum.de

Kost og logi

You sleep in a hostel in 2- or 4-bed rooms. A self-catering kitchen is available for all guests. The group will prepare and cook meals together there.

Beliggenhed og fritid

In your free time you can take a trip to the second largest city in Germany, where a variety of leisure activities await you. Your working location is in the Rahlstedt district and your accommodation is in the Volksdorf district. From there you can be in downtown Hamburg within 30 minutes (subway - tickets are provided). www.hamburg.de (German) / www.hamburg.com (English) It’s also worth taking trips to the beaches at the North Sea and the Baltic Sea at the weekend.

The municipality of La Roche Chalais is hosting an international workcamp of volunteers for the fourth year: after carrying out paths which connect the village to the river and redeveloped the banks of the river we continue to work on the heritage and natural spaces of the village. In connection with the various political, cultural and technical actors of the territory, this camp will bring you to meet a rural territory and to participate in its dynamism. It will also be an opportunity to participate in a broader program of support for the integration of refugees in this territory through voluntary actions. Indeed, a group of local inhabitants mixing “original” inhabitants and newcomers will participate with you at the different times of the construction site, helping to break down the labels and stereotypes around migration and to enhance their involvement in this territory. All these different local people and the regulars of the campsite where you will be accommodated will offer you many ways to participate in local life: meals, activities with the children of the school, local associations... You will discover the hospitality of the population and the charm of the landscapes and local heritage, by organizing with the other volunteers and leaders your program of activities.

We invite volunteers to give their support to multiple tasks which will help the schools to have incredible summer camps. The purpose is mainly the exchange between enthusiastic and motivated youngsters in order to share all together our experiences and wishes. There will be two types of tasks: farm work and renovation/construction. During the workcamp, we wish the volunteers to share with us the everyday life of Clerheid School as well as the maintenance of the site, by performing the following tasks: • Take care of the animals (2 horses, 2 donkeys, 2 goats, sheep and chickens), • Prepare the fields, to fix the fences, and various farm works, • Maintain the forest (wood collecting, pruning and storage) and of the 12 hectares of fields (haymaking, cutting “bad weed”…), to construct a dry stone wall, gardening • To prepare, maintain and renovate various installations, wooden construction… This intercultural workcamp has a the goal to prepare the summer camps of the coming season. Volunteers will twork to prepare the area for summer camps (interviews, fences, haymaking, etc.) and to renovate, repair and build wooden structures according to the needs of the association. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to visit and work in the Wooden Village which hosts every year hundreds of kids. This enchanting place is the fruit of the work and imagination of generations of kids and activity leaders, and today it extends considerably (more than 20 huts over 2 hectares, a bridge, an amphitheatre, a fence...). Tasks are fairly diversified so it should be something for every taste. The planning of activities will be developed progressively according to the progress of work, the weather, needs of the organisation and wishes of volunteers

Kost og logi

Volunteers will live in a small cottage, with a kitchen, a bathroom and two bedrooms (2 x 4 beds), as well as in a dormitory with a bathroom.

Arrangeret af

ProjectEstonian Fund for Nature (ELF) is NGO dedicated to nature conservation. Its mission is to preserve endangered species and their habitats, natural landscapes and natural associations typical of Estonia. ELF organizes yearly nature conservation holidays where volunteers, participants and group managers work together in order to improve the living conditions of a certain species (i.e. natter jack toad, black stork) or maintain semi-natural communities. You can read more on http://elfond.ee/en and see photos of volunteering camps 2019 and 2020: http://www.talgud.ee/galerii/2019 , http://www.talgud.ee/galerii/2020 The aim of this camp is the surveillance of the western capercaillie (Tetrao urogallus) and other Galliformes in Estonian mires and forests in the North-East of Estonia.The western capercaillie (Tetrao urogallus) is the largest Galliform in Europe. The male and female differ in colorization and size, whereby the hens are around 40 smaller than the cocks. The population of males in Estonia is about 1500 and the numbers are declining due to the loss of habitats. The surveillance and counting of specimens helps to evaluate the status of the species and take further action in its protection.North-East Estonia is a region of contrast. It is the largest industrial (oil shale) region of Estonia, spiked with underground mines and ruined landscapes. However, it is also the home to Alutaguse, the largest forestry region, and the newest National Park of Estonia. North-East Estonia has an interesting combination of industrial mining towns from the Soviet era, small villages along the coast of Lake Peipus, and endless wilderness. NB It is possible to combine both shifts of this project.

Come and contribute to the enhancement of the medieval castle of Clermont L'Hérault! Built in the 12th Century, the Château des Guilhem has suffered considerable deterioration over the years, which has led the commune to close access to the public. Since the beginning of this year, the municipality has decided to undertake the work necessary to reopen it at the beginning of this summer. Your work will therefore consist of enhancing the site, carrying out minor landscaping work, facilitating access to the castle with brush clearing and small improvements to the existing paths. This work is therefore essential to enable visitors, walkers and the curious from all walks of life to come and discover this medieval gem! Accompanied by the four goats already present on the site, you will also be able to prevent and fight against the potential risk of fire.

Since 2015, we have a very strong partnership with the city of Clermont l'Hérault and the local associations which act in favour of the discovery of the local heritage. The offices of our delegation are located in the town. We thus carry out several voluntary projects for the young people of the area. We work together with volunteers from local heritage preservation associations. This project concerning the enhancement of the castle is very important for the commune. It is therefore planned to create a natural theatre within the castle, to install a restaurant and to organise cultural and festive events.

Arrangeret af

The work camp is in collaboration with WWF Crotone, which runs C.E.L.A. (legal and environmental education centre). CELA is a building confiscated from the local mafia (N drangheta) and has now become the symbol of the fight against organised crime in the province of Crotone. The WWF of Crotone runs a rescue centre for sea turtles in the Caporizzuto Marine Reserve and an aquarium,Brief history: the C.E.A.M. (Marine Education Centre) was run by a famous religious association called Misericordia. The leader of this association, who was also the priest of the island town of Caporizzuto, was imprisoned four years ago because he was accused of being the boss of the local Mafia organisation. The province of Crotone decided to give CEAM to WWF Crotone for free, but the lack of money forced the association to open only the sea turtle rescue centre, while the aquarium remained closed. Fortunately in 2018 WWF Crotone was able to open the aquarium, but they need the help of many volunteers to clean the tanks.

Mødested

Volunteers will be waited for at Crotone or Botricello train stations and from there accompanied to the project. By plane: volunteers arriving by plane will be accompanied from the airport to the project. On the day of departure volunteers will be accompanied to the train stations and airports.
