Arbeit

Im Moment sind aufgrund der Ausbreitung des neuen Coronavirus Grenzen geschlossen, Flüge ausgesetzt und ganze Länder gesperrt. Das bedeutet, dass eine konkrete Workcampteilnahme für dich aktuell vielleicht schlecht planbar ist. Dafür haben wir natürlich Verständnis und haben deshalb bereits unsere Vermittlungsbedingungen für internationale Workcamps angepasst (mehr Infos auf unserer Website). Du kannst hier aber schon einen Gutschein für eine Workcamp-Teilnahme erwerben und ihn zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt für die Vermittlung in ein Workcamp deiner Wahl einlösen. Vielleicht möchtest du gern in einem Umweltschutzprojekt mit anpacken und zwei Wochen lang in der Natur arbeiten, wenn Reisen wieder möglich ist? Oder bei der Renovierung eines alten Schlosses oder beim Bau eines Spielplatzes helfen? Auch die Mitarbeit bei einem gemeinnützigen Festival oder einem sozialen Projekt sind im Rahmen eines internationalen Workcamps möglich. Gemeinsam ist allen Camps, dass du neue Fähigkeiten erlernen und neue Freunde kennen lernen kannst.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Die Unterkünfte in internationalen Workcamps sind meistens sehr einfach und können zum Beispiel in Schulräumen, Forsthütten, Zelten, Pfadfinderheimen oder Bürgerhäusern sein. Was genau für dein Camp gelten wird, kannst du dann in der Ausschreibung oder im Infosheet erfahren. Meist verpflegen sich die Gruppen selbst: Alle Freiwilligen übernehmen im Wechsel die Zubereitung der Mahlzeiten für die ganze Gruppe. Das notwendige Geld oder die Lebensmittel dafür werden von der jeweiligen Organisation gestellt. Für dich ist die Verpflegung also kostenlos. Gerade wenn du nicht so geübt im Kochen bist, ist es sehr hilfreich, ein paar einfach zu kochende (am besten typisch deutsche) Rezepte mitzubringen. Es gibt auch Workcamps, in denen das Essen gestellt und für euch vorbereitet wird.

Lage und Freizeit

Wir arbeiten mit Partnerorganisationen in über 40 Ländern zusammen: Von Armenien bis Vietnam – von Kanada bis in die Mongolei – internationale Workcamps gibt es weltweit! In den meisten Workcamps gibt es keine fest organisierten Freizeitprogramme und eure Ideen und Wünsche wie auch Lage und Ausstattung des Workcamps entscheiden häufig über die Freizeitaktivitäten und Ausflüge.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Für IBG als Workcamporganisation bedeutet die aktuelle Situation und die Verbreitung des neuen Coronavirus, dass unsere Freiwilligen zur Zeit nicht ins Ausland reisen können und wir in den kommenden Monaten keine Workcamps in Deutschland organisieren können. Wir finanzieren unsere Arbeit aber größtenteils über Fördermittel des BMFSFJ für internationale Begegnungen, eure Vermittlungsgebühren für Workcamps und die Kooperationsbeiträge unserer Workcamp-Projektpartner*innen in Deutschland. Das heißt kurz, dass wir, wenn all diese drei über längere Zeit wegfallen, unsere Vereinsarbeit nicht weiter finanzieren können, um weiterhin Workcamps, Trainings und Seminare für euch zu organisieren. Daher würde es uns sehr helfen, wenn du uns mit dem Erwerb eines Workcamp-Gutscheins jetzt finanzielle Unterstützung zukommen lässt. Wir werden uns dann - hoffentlich möglichst bald - mit einer einmaligen Workcamperfahrung bei dir revanchieren.

Weitere Infos

Dieser Gutschein ist gültig für die Vermittlung in ein Workcamp aus unserem internationalen Workcamp-Programm. Die Reisekosten und weitere zusätzliche Kosten musst du wie bei allen Workcamps auch hier selbst tragen. Eine Auszahlung des Betrags ist nicht möglich und bei Verlust des Gutscheins können wir keine Haftung übernehmen. Du kannst den Workcamp Gutschein natürlich auch als Geschenk für eine andere Person erwerben!

Arbeit

Maybe you were prepared to join an environmental workcamp and work in nature for two weeks. Maybe you wanted to help renovate an old castle or build a playground. Maybe you wanted to support a non-profit festival or a social project. You were probably looking forward to learning new skills and meeting new friends. At this moment, however, due to the spread of the new coronavirus, borders are closed, flights are suspended and entire countries are in lockdown. That means, of course, that it is impossible for many volunteers to travel. It also means that workcamps which were planned for the next weeks have to be cancelled. But let’s look on the bright side – it is still possible to meet people from all over the world online! So join this virtual workcamp and volunteer in a different way! What will we be working on together? Many workcamp organisations started finding meaningful tasks that can be done together online: There are different “Do it yourself” projects ready where you can learn how to make Eco friendly cleaning products, natural cosmetic products, a home gardening project as well as a Recycling Club The Presporkovo Family Centre in Slovakia wants to provide a meaningful program for families with children. They are looking for volunteers who can help online by creating short educational language videos. And there is a cool research project for slovak and czech speakers waiting. There are “Virtual Speaking Clubs” waiting for volunteers to learn and practice different languages like English, German, Greek, Portuguese and Russian in a fun and non-formal way Also there are different workshops, quizzes and fun free time activities in preparation. Here you can find the online board where all recent projects and activities are presented https://de.padlet.com/projekte6/virtualcamp and new ones will be added. You should at least join one, but you can of course participate in more, if you like. And of course, you can exchange ideas, experiences, language, music, recipes and much more with the other online volunteers, just as in a real 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 sleeping on hard field beds, 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 workcamp, you might have a chance to see how different homes all over the world look like!

Lage und Freizeit

This workcamp will be taking place entirely 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 really nice for our beautiful planet! While it is important to keep physical distance at the moment, we can create social proximity in the digital world.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

This is a joint project of many workcamps organisations worldwide. 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. This virtual workcamp is organized by different workcamp organisations worldwide as an effort to keep up international volunteering, even if most of us cannot travel right now.

Weitere Infos

There is no application fee for this workcamp, but you are of course welcome to support our work financially on a voluntary basis. When your application gets accepted, you will receive an invitation for the Virtual Workcamp common area on Slack and you will need to create an account for it, which is free as well.

You will also help to move an already existing yurt to another place which includes taking apart its wooden parts and reconstructing it. You will be guided and supervised by qualified craftsmen. Remember that you’ll mainly work outside and it is important to bring sturdy working clothes which you don’t mind getting dirty, some solid and waterproof shoes, working gloves and a rain jacket as the season can be unpredictable at times.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will be accommodated in a shared tent, so you will need to bring a sleeping mat as well as a sleeping bag. Considering the temperature you are also advised to bring some warm and cozy clothes.

Here you will find the possibility to access all the basic necessities you will need (e.g. groceries, sanitary articles etc.).

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Arbeit

Clean three small streams in Oberzissen to avoid floodings! The streams were piped underground for years and then reopened. They still run in a canalized stream bed, but have become an important part of the townscape again. In order to prevent flooding, the streams must be cleared of vegetation over a length of about 300m. Branches, plants and rubbish can lead to the formation of barriers during heavy rainfall and flood the village centre. In addition, the railings on the banks are sanded down and repainted where necessary. These are an important safety precaution to ensure that nobody - especially children - falls into the streams, which are about 1m lower than the roads. Under the guidance of a master painter you will work in the middle of the village. Some smaller additional tasks will complete the project.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will stay in the local sports hall and the buildings of the soccer club, kitchen, showers and mats are provided. Outside you have plenty of space to use and also a small barbecue area. Volunteers will cook together.

Lage und Freizeit

Oberzissen is a village with 1.100 inhabitants not far from Bonn. Oberzissen offers friendly people, a beautiful landscape, two pubs and an ice-cream parlour. You can find supermarkets in the net village (2km). On Whit Monday (June 1st) there will be a special cultural event: A catholic procession with horses and tractors starts in Oberzissen and leads to the neighbouring village and its chapel. Oberzissen has also a historic railway running the weekends with steam engine. Asides of this, you can go hiking, make barbecues, discover the nature, and have different activities together with locals. The number of excursions will be limited you can visit the Rhine Valley or other sights.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Oberzissen is a village with 1.100 inhabitants not far from Bonn. For the first time the local community asked IBG for the support of international volunteers. They ask for help to clear three small streams leading through the village centre but at the same time they are excited to meet you and get to know the different cultures of all volunteers. Your support will help the community to avoid the dangers of flooding (SDG 11 sustainable communities).

Arbeit

Your main task will be the preparation of the nature kindergarten: You are going to transform a former bee house into a place for the children to spend time at during bad weather. This includes painting the walls and decorating the room with wooden elements and decorations. Feel free to get creative! You are also going to make seats, benches and tables out of tree trunks for the children. Another task will be the creation of raised garden beds, which you will set up, fill with soil and prepare everything so that the children can then afterwards grow their own vegetables and fruit! There might be some other manual tasks awaiting you, such as putting together a sandbox for the children to play in. The second part of the project is to make the town’s swimming area more attractive: You will build a wooden foot bridge into the lake, hang up a “tarzan” rope to swing into the lake and set up a barbecue place on meadow next to the lake. Lots of outside manual and construction work is awaiting you, so please bring sturdy shoes, working gloves, sun protection and raingear!

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will stay at the town’s youth house which is situated at the outskirts of the town, but easily reachable by foot. Inside the building, there will be two rooms for sleeping (please bring your own sleeping bag!), sanitary facilities and a kitchen. Outside, there is also plenty of space which you can use during your stay, such as a big garden and an “outside living room” under a roof. On Monday and Friday afternoon, some part of the youth centre will be open to youngsters (you can lock your rooms), the rest of the time the building is all yours. Supermarkets are nearby and can easily be reached by foot or bike. The worksite will also be reached by bike or foot.

Lage und Freizeit

Höchstädt is situated on the river Danube and has a nice historical centre with museums and cafés and its own castle! Since it’s well connected by train, it is also possible to visit nearby towns such as Ulm and Augsburg or even Munich. The area is also great for nature lovers, there are plenty of well-developed bike-roads and many lakes that you can swim in. You will be able to meet local youngsters at the youth centre or through sports clubs.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The municipality of Hoechstaedt is looking forward to opening their first “nature kindergarten” at the start of September 2020. The kindergarten will have capacities for 20 children. In order to finish everything before the opening of the kindergarten, they need your help! The second project of the workcamp is the embellishment of the nearby quarry lake, so that it can be enjoyed by the general population of the town. It is important to the municipality to have a sustainable project that will enrich the community for many years (SDG 11 sustainable communities).

Weitere Infos

Volunteers will need to be able to swim in order to work next to the lake. It is also recommended that volunteers know how to ride a bike.

Arbeit

Support a Franconian village in the organization of their annual wine festival (“Weinfest”)! In one part of this workcamp, you will help the community of the village of Tauberzell in the organisation of their 2020 festival. This includes setting up the tents and stalls, running different shifts during the festival as well as dismantling the whole structure again in the end. Another task for your group will be to work together with a local association in maintaining and preserving the natural landscape surrounding the village.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will be accommodated in the villages’ old inn. In this vacant house there are several rooms you can use for sleeping, as well as a kitchen and bathrooms. The accommodation is picturesque, but quite basic and there is no WiFi available. Please bring your own sleeping bag!

Lage und Freizeit

The village of Tauberzell is part of the community of Adelshofen in the southern German region of Franconia. The region is known for its wine, a rich tradition of beer brewing and other local culinary specialities. Nature lovers can find several hiking trails in the beautiful surrounding landscape. Rothenburg ob der Tauber, well known for its well-preserved medieval old town, is just 10km from Tauberzell. The cities of Nuremberg and Bamberg are not too far away either and might be visited on weekends.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The Franconian village of Tauberzell is hosting a group of international volunteers for the second time this year. From June 10th until June 14th, the village will organize a wine festival to celebrate the local tradition of wine making. Each year, around 10,000 visitors come to the festival, so the community is happy to have some supporting hands in setting up and running the festival. The local youth is very much involved in the running of this big event and is looking forward to introduce you to local traditions and festivities.

Arbeit

The Agapedia children’s centre has become very popular in the last couple of years and wants to expand their space, so they can offer more activities to children. Therefore, they plan on converting the attic into a suitable and usable space for children. You will be helping with the extension of the building, which includes attaching insulation to the walls working with glue and screws, to smooth over the walls and paint them, as well as fixing the floor. In addition to working inside, there are also plenty of tasks outside to improve the garden. Among general painting works and other things, you will be renovating a small shed/hut in the garden. Make sure to bring clothes that can get dirty and sturdy shoes. Agapedia and the children will be excited to see the result of your work!

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will stay at the children’s centre itself and there’ll be plenty of space. Mats and camping beds for sleeping are provided, so you only need to bring a sleeping bag. In the centre you will have your own kitchen and sanitary facilities; there’s even a washing machine. Several supermarkets are very close-by and you can easily reach the city centre by foot.

Lage und Freizeit

Esslingen am Neckar is a town in southern Germany near Stuttgart, which is well known for its medieval historical centre with a lot of beautiful old buildings. It is home to the oldest sparkling wine cellar in Germany. The town has a lot of cultural activities to offer, such as museums, art galleries, theatre, and cinema. In addition, it is only a 15min tram ride away from Stuttgart, where you will find plenty of activities, for example you could visit the famous Mercedes or Porsche car museum. If you are more into outdoor activities, you could rent bikes and follow the beautiful bike trail along the river Neckar. There is also a swimming pool in Esslingen itself where you can cool off after a day of work.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The Agapedia foundation was founded by the German football manager and former player Juergen Klinsmann. The foundation develops projects that help children in need. In the town of Esslingen, it is running a children’s centre in which children between 6 and 12 years come for different activities, which aim at increasing childrens’ self-confidence and help them discover their potential. Activities include circus arts, cooking, crafts, music, sports and games. International volunteers have already helped out in the project in the previous year. By volunteering in this project you support the foundation in including more children in their program (SDG 11 sustainable communities).

Arbeit

One area in the Mariaberg complex where people with and without disabilities work together is the ecological farm, which is mainly raising Angus cattle, but also some pigs, geese and therapeutic sheep as well as cultivation of different grains. The farm is located a bit outside the main part of Mariaberg and during some days different students with disabilities from the schools in Mariaberg are also working on the farm. For and together with all these people you will be building a bakehouse on the area of the farm. This includes the preparation and concreting of the foundation, the bricklaying of the oven, the insertion of the baking chamber and the ash pan, and the erection of the roof with wooden rafters and roof tiles.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Accommodation will be in a gym hall in the centre of Mariaberg close to all needed facilities like showers and toilets. You will certainly have access to the swimming pool of the quarter and have the opportunity to use other facilities. You will not prepare meals for yourself since there is no kitchen close to your accommodation. Hence, you will be served in the local Café and restaurant of the “village”.

Lage und Freizeit

Gammertingen is situated 80 km south of Stuttgart, nestled in the Swabian Albes (not Alpes!)– a beautiful mountain chain with spectacular nature. Without doubt, you will find enough to do in Mariaberg itself (swimming pool, barbecue, gym halls, bowling, restaurants and cafés!) but the region also offers its nature, typical Swabian villages and small towns as worthy day-trips. The locals are looking forward to the cultural exchange with you and will be happy to organise trips and other activities for you.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Following the successful history of work camps in Mariaberg, IBG and international volunteers are again invited to come to Mariaberg / Gammertingen to realize a small but important construction project. An old monastery overlooks the village from atop the surrounding hills and lush forests of the Swabian Albes. Mariaberg, a quarter of Gammertingen, is not only a village, but also a supporting organisation of the “Behindertenhilfe”, an institution offering homes, workshops and education (kindergarten and schools) for young people with learning difficulties, disabilities or illnesses. A diverse range of people – young and old – come together to live here, learn and work. Mariaberg as an institution was founded in 1847 and is now one of the biggest employers in the area, with several schools for caring professions and a psychiatry clinic for children and youth. We ask you to come with an open heart and mind, as you will be in close contact with the people and become part of the diverse community in Mariaberg! This project is great for anyone with an interest in communities where people with and without disabilities work and live together. By participating in this workcamp, you are actively supporting inclusive education (UN SDG 4 Quality education).

You will help the organisers in all phases of the festival: The main tasks will be, on the first days, setting up the stage and the campground on the site of the festival, as well as the disassembly of the whole structure and surroundings on the last day. While the festival is running, the volunteers should be available to the organisation and will be ask to assist in different areas: bar, stage, organisation, catering etc. You will work closely with the local people from the association There is a plan for the build-up of the festival, nevertheless the schedule will be adapted to the always changing logistics of the event and you are expected to be flexible, patient and work autonomously within this plan. Volunteers should be prepared to work long and unusual hours, but also have some time between their shifts, which can be used to explore the festival and enjoy the music Speaking or understanding basic German will be a plus

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will stay at the local brewery It is a small and very basic accommodation not far from the festival site that does not provide much comfort, but a very unique charm. The final ceremony afterwards for all the helpers of the festival will also take place there. During the festival food will be provided by the food stands throughout

Lage und Freizeit

Pegnitz is a small town in Franconia, Bavaria, near Nuremberg. You can find medieval and historic buildings and churches in the centre of the city. The city is known for its beers: it has a long tradition in brewery and the locals are very proud of it. The Bavarian region, in which Pegnitz is located, is called Little Switzerland due to its beautiful surrounding that invites extended adventures and hiking trips in the region. There are all kinds of trails and possibilities to experience the unique nature.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The local association Waldstock e.V. (http://waldstock.de/) promotes local youth activities in the small town of Pegnitz. The members of this association are very motivated and with a lot of personal involvement they organize projects like concerts, film festivals or soccer cups. For more than 20 years, they have been organizing the Waldstock festival, a so called Umsonst und Draussen - festival ( outside and free of charge ), which has become an important part of the cultural life in the town of Pegnitz and the region. Since 2013 the festival is supported by a small group of international Workcamp volunteers, who can enjoy the truly unique experience of becoming a part of the busy festival team.

Arbeit

You will support the local community in different tasks: 1. You will renovate a wooden hut used as shelter for hikers: Work will be demanding in parts and volunteers with experience in manual work or work with wood are especially welcome. 2. You will improve the surroundings of your accommodation. This will include landscape gardening and renovation work. Some other smaller tasks to improve the community infrastructure will be added. The group of volunteers will be split up to work in the two different tasks simultaneously every day. You will also support the local festival team during the village party. And finally – but not confirmed yet – we try to arrange shared activities (work and leisure) with a social initiative for kids with special needs.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

The accommodation provided is the former centre of the sports club of Schwarzerden. It is now in public use for bigger events in this village. All necessary facilities are provided, but there is no public internet. Attention: This place is quite isolated; the village of Schwarzerden is 1km away. Next to the accommodation, you can find the sports ground; you can use it whenever you want. You will have a beautiful view over the valley as you will be surrounded by forests and meadows. Just light a campfire and enjoy nature.

Lage und Freizeit

The workcamp will take place in Schwarzerden. The village has a pub and a very small little shop (open only in the mornings). The village belongs to the local community of Freisen, together with 7 other villages. Freisen is situated in a 4km distance in the north of Saarland in a rural area. You can find many interesting places in Freisen: a historical railway, cultural and natural sights, a small zoo, a public swimming pool (a 3km walk from the accommodation). The local villagers are already looking forward to get to know you and to welcome you at the local village festival. The villagers will do their best to support some excursions by organising the transport (maybe to the famous sights of Trier or to Idar-Oberstein, the German centre of gemstones). But this cannot be guaranteed yet. The project is perfect for volunteers who enjoy being outside and in nature.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The workcamp will take place in Schwarzerden, which belongs to Freisen, a local community of 8 villages. Freisen is situated in the north of Saarland in a rural area. You can find many interesting places in Freisen: a historical railway, cultural and natural sights, a small zoo, a spa bath (but only few of them in Schwarzerden). The local villagers are already looking forward to getting to know you and will welcome you at the local village festival. We will do our best to arrange excursions with the support of locals, but due to the poor public transport, they will for sure be limited. The project is perfect for volunteers who enjoy being outside and in nature.

Arbeit

There is plenty to build and to create in the “Adventure Land” in Lauchringen. The building itself is already finished; however, there’s still work to do in the surrounding garden area. You will set up and decorate a terrace and you will build high gardening beds for children to plant flowers and vegetables in. Another task will be gardening work in the fields. In addition, you are going to build a storage room for the pull-along-wagon which is used for transporting different things around the adventure land. All in all, be prepared for a variety of outside and manual work!

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Arbeit

In this workcamp, you will prepare the summer flower festival “Neresheim in Bloom”, which will be opened on July 18th. Your main tasks will be to build, move and install various flowerbeds, plant the flowers for the festival, and even install some beach elements along the main festive road which leads from the main square down to the town park. Since the park will be part of the flower festival, this is a good occasion to make the park more attractive by planting flowers, renovating existing park elements and installing new ones, such as a bar foot path and a beach volleyball field. Your work in the park also includes tasks like digging up the lawn in order to prepare the flower beds, so be prepared to work with earth and soil. You might also be involved in setting up other elements of the festival for the opening ceremony.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will be accommodated in the local fire station which offers a big room for sleeping, toilets and a place to cook! Neresheim will provide you with beds and you will only need to bring your own sleeping bag. The showers are located in the public swimming baths which are only a 200m walk away. Supermarkets can be easily reached by foot.

Lage und Freizeit

Neresheim is a small but lively town with around 8000 inhabitants. It is the cultural centre of the Haertsfeld which is the eastern region of the Swabian Alps. Because of this, it sports over 100 local clubs and youth initiatives which is a lot considering its rural charm and will surely offer possibilities to interact with locals. In your free time, you will also have the opportunity to visit the local museum and open air or indoor baths. The beautiful nature surrounding it also invites you to explore and hike the local trails.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

For the first time, Neresheim will organize the festival “Neresheim in Bloom” , which will start on July 18th and last until September 2020.

They want to bring life and colour to the town by filling the streets and town square with the temporary plantings of flowers during the summer months. There are a variety of events which are planned to take place during the summer to add to the festive and communal experience!

Arbeit

A variety of tasks are waiting for your help. One task will be the maintenance of a hiking trail in the forest. So-called “neophytes” (invasive non-native vegetation) need to be removed in the nature protection area. You will cut and clear those plants. Furthermore, cleaning and clearing of vegetation needs to be done in biotopes like ponds and tarns. You will, most likely, also repair fences and maintain grasslands around fruit trees. Be prepared for hard physical work! Due to working in damp and steep areas (ponds), rubber boots and/or sturdy shoes are necessary for working effectively! You are also going to help with the running of the Agricultural Experience Day on Sunday, July 19th, which involves setting up exhibition stands and different stations, where visitors can experience different aspects of agriculture and landscape preservation.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

The workcamp team will stay in a nice community house in the middle of the forest, where you can find sanitary facilities, showers and a well-equipped kitchen. You can have a look at their website: http://moosenmaettleweb.de. There are 4 bed-rooms for you. Due to the position of the house in a very rural area, it is likely that there will not be access to internet and no coverage for mobile phones. Just be prepared to spend two wonderful, adventurous weeks away from your busy and usual everyday life.

Lage und Freizeit

Lauterbach is situated in the heart of the Black Forest nature park, close to Schramberg and the town Rottweil. There are many possibilities to hike and experience nature first hand. Just step out the door and find yourself surrounded by beautiful nature! On weekends, you’ll have the chance to visit Rottweil or the university town of Freiburg.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

It is the 12th time that the community of Lauterbach invites a workcamp! Above all, the local host is very happy to be supported by a workcamp at different environmental and construction tasks in a nature protection area! By volunteering in this project, you are actively protecting nature and biodiversity (UN SDG 15).

Arbeit

For the construction of the mobile youth café, you will start with a metal construction wagon and cover it with wooden planks. The inside should also be furnished at least in parts and the outside part will be painted to give it an appealing look. Volunteers of the local repair café will guide you in the working tasks. Usually they help people to fix things that are broken instead of throwing them away in order to increase sustainability. Parts of the work will be done together with students of a special school for youngsters with learning difficulties. They might be a bit younger than you. The construction site will be located on the school grounds. The cooperation with the young students is an essential part of the project and you should be open for it. On some days you will also be involved in activities of the local youth centre, which is doing a tour during these two weeks. They offer activities for young people every day at a different place in the city or in one of the suburbs. For that they are using a mobile youth café very similar to the one which you will be building.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will stay in the school. In one part of the school you have your rooms for eating and sleeping, a kitchen, toilets and showers are provided. Mats are provided. The facilities are quite basic.

Lage und Freizeit

Tettnang is a very nice city with approx. 20.000 inhabitants only 10km from the Lake Constance. It has a beautiful historic inner city, a castle and many more sights. You have plenty of shops, pubs, a cinema, swimming pool, leisure areas… Many parties and local events will take place in July. You have a nice view on the Swiss Alps on the other side of Lake Constance. For sure you will make an excursion to Friedrichshafen to enjoy the lake. But the main focus of the project is the exchange with local young people, so most of the time the activities will take place in Tettnang itself.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The German State Baden-Wurttemberg has a special partnership with the regions of Auvergne-Rhônes-Alpes, Catalonia and Lombardy called the “Four motors for Europe”. Every year, IBG is asked to organise a special workcamp to invite young volunteers from these partner regions to Baden-Wurttemberg. This year the workcamp will take place in the beautiful city of Tettnang, close to Lake Constanze. The main aim of the workcamp is to support local youth work by constructing a mobile youth café from an old construction trailer (similar to a circus wagon). The inclusion of young locals with learning difficulties is a second important topic of the project. In parts you will work together with them and you will be hosted in their special school. You will also join activities of local youth clubs. By participating in this workcamp, you are actively supporting inclusive education (UN SDG 4).

Weitere Infos

Only for participants from Catalonia, Lombardy, and Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes!
