Arbeit

Together for a vibrant village life! The local community of Wolsfeld with its 1.000 inhabitants invites international volunteers for the first time. Hosting you and working together with you are as important as the outcome of your work. They defined several projects to improve the living quality in the village and to make Wolsfeld more attractive.
In the middle of the forest and along a hiking trail, there is a recreational facility with a Kneipp water treading basin (used for “Kneipp hydrotherapy” which is quite popular in Germany), a public barbecue hut and a Hubertus fountain that feeds the basin. Your job will be maintain and upgrade this area. Concrete tasks are:
• Cleaning the water basin;
• renovating the barbecue hut;
• expanding the leisure facilities with a balancing path and a barefoot path (these need to be newly constructed);
• freeing the hiking trail that goes through the forest from overgrown trees and vegetation;
• marking out the hiking trail with signage.
Adjacent to the former parish church of Wolsfeld is the cemetery of honor, a public green area commemorating people who died in the world wars. This path is also to be redesigned and newly laid out. A kind of meditation path or mindfulness path is to be built. The character of the place will change due to these new elements. The old parish church might also be included in the work and some painting work can be carried out. All works will be done together with local volunteers, so for sure you will get to know the village and the village life quite well.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will use the gym for sleeping on mats, showers and toilets are provided. To cook, eat and enjoy your free time you can use the school just opposite the small street. In the huge schoolyard you can spend your time outside - if the weather allows. The accommodation will be simple and without a washing machine or Wi-Fi. Please bring your sleeping bag. Your group of volunteers will be responsible for grocery shopping and cooking together. The food will be bought with the camp budget and everybody will take turns for cooking, washing the dishes and cleaning. In order to reduce our carbon footprint on the planet, we encourage volunteers to reduce meat and try more sustainable dishes.

Lage und Freizeit

Wolsfeld is a village with 1.000 inhabitants in the Southern part of the Eifel, a low mountain range landscape between Cologne, Trier and Aachen. The area offers a very rich and picturesque nature: huge forests, deep river valleys, sunbathed plateaus and many rare animals and plants. It is a great area for hiking and other outdoor activities. In addition many cultural sights are waiting for you: castles, Roman monuments… Wolsfeld itself has some infrastructure: two pubs, a bakery, many local associations and a vibrant village life. The nearest city Bitburg (9km) is definitively worth visiting. Probably you know it from the famous brewery “Bitburger” (you can also visit the old brewery), but here you can find a nice historic city centre, shops, cafés, museums and much more. Good public transport connections will enable excursions to Trier or Luxembourg. The area of Wolsfeld was also affected by the flood in July 2021, but fortunately there was only property damage here. By volunteering in this project, you are contributing to a sustainable and inclusive community (UN SDG 11).

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The local community of Wolsfeld has already started various approaches and actions to make village life lively and to make Wolsfeld a place where all generations would like to live and stay. For example, a pocket money system has been set up in which older people in the village can ask children and young people to do tasks they cannot do themselves (anymore) for pocket money. The international workcamp is one more step in this approach. The international atmosphere, the exchange with you and the work done together with you are important components. Therefore you can expect to do various activities together with locals in your free time.

Anreise zum Treffpunkt

Please arrange your travel in a way that you arrive between 2 and 8 pm in Wolsfeld on July 23rd.

Anforderungen

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all volunteers need to be either fully vaccinated (2 to 3 shots of one of the following vaccines: BioNtech/Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca or Johnson&Johnson) or recovered (date of infection must be at least 28 days old and max 90 days old).

A guided tour might be organised for you, if you’re interested. Besides, the town can arrange free entrance to the outdoor swimming pool for the volunteers. Nature-lovers can find several hiking trails in the beautiful surrounding landscape. The cities of Nuremberg, Bamberg and Rothenburg ob der Tauber are not too far away and might be visited on weekends.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The town of Heilsbronn has been hosting workcamps for over 12 years already and is looking forward to welcoming another international group of volunteers this summer. The local community is a big fan of workcamps and international volunteering and has introduced other neighbouring cities to the workcamp idea as well.

Youth and biodiversity! These are the two key elements of this project. Under the guidance of a local nature conservation organization (NABU), you will work together to ecologically improve the outdoor area of the CHILLOUD youth club. Specifically, you will
• create a wetland biotope;
• construct special raised beds for butterflies and bees.
The existing trees will be integrated into the concept. There are already many rare species on the site, and in the future the outdoor area will become the perfect place for environmental learning and activities. Young people should like to spend time here and also like to chill outside. Besides the ecological aspect, the encounter is particularly important. You will work together with young people from Markgröningen, they will show you their hometown and do many exciting activities with you.

If the weather is nice, there will be additional tents for sleeping, so there is even more space for everyone. Wi-Fi is available, but no washing machine. Please bring a sleeping bag. Your group of volunteers will be responsible for grocery shopping and cooking together. The food will be bought with the camp budget and everybody will take turns for cooking, washing the dishes and cleaning.

Lage und Freizeit

Markgröningen is a very nice town with approx. 15.000 inhabitants, not far from Stuttgart (20km). The historic city center is absolutely worth seeing. The many half-timbered houses, the market square, the small cafés and shops attract not only tourists, but locals also enjoy their time. The direct surroundings of the youth center offer many opportunities for outdoor sports (hiking, BMX track, canoeing, and all kinds of ball sports).

Arbeit

In this workcamp, you will support the forest school “Waldschulheim Indelhausen” by protecting the forest around and you will take part to their programme of non-formal learning about nature. In the mornings, you will be working on different environmental tasks to help maintain the surrounding biosphere area. Your tasks will be:
• planting and preserving forest crops;
• grooming specific biotopes (ex: juniper heath);
• clearing some areas;
• (de)constructing protection fences;
• maintaining certain paths in the forest.
In the afternoons, you will be learning more about biodiversity with the forest rangers. This is a special project for nature lovers and people interested in learning about nature protection work. The project is part of the 2022 IBG agenda: “Let’s take action for climate protection – volunteering for forests and peatlands”.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will be accommodated in shared rooms directly in the forest school. The rooms have 2 to 4 beds each (with a mattress, bedsheets, a blanket and a pillow). There are showers with warm water and bathroom facilities on each floor, which can all be separated by gender. In the building there is also a dining room, 3 common rooms and a gym hall which you can use. Wi-Fi is provided. Meals will be prepared and served by the school, which means you will not have to cook nor wash the dishes. You will get breakfast, lunch (warm) and dinner (warm or cold) in the forest school. Please let us know if you have allergies or intolerances. The forest school tries its best to serve regional, local and bio food.

Lage und Freizeit

The “Waldschulheim” is located in the small village of Indelhausen in the middle of a geopark and at the southern end of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve “Schwäbische Alb” in southern Germany. This area features diverse mountainous and cultural landscapes, protected ecosystems with rare plants and animals and notable forest, meadow and orchard habitats. In line with our efforts to focus on workcamps within the field of nature protection the region is highly suitable. The surroundings are perfect for outdoors activities like hiking. It is very rural, and there are many great view-points and various old castle ruins that are worth visiting.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The forest school “Waldschulheim Indelhausen” is a pedagogical institution founded in 1977. The building used to be the village school and now serves 1,000 students and teachers every year as a non-formal learning place on the topic of forest and nature. Groups of students of the grades 7 to 9 of all school types usually stay here for two weeks and participate in different tasks of simple forest work, an educational program about the forest and excursions as well as games, fun and sports. There will certainly be other groups of young students in the Waldschulheim at the time of your workcamp and you will have the possibility to exchange with them. You can take a look at the place here https://waldschulheim-indelhausen.forstbw.de/wsh-indelhausen/. By participating in this workcamp, you are actively supporting biodiversity (UN SDG 15) and help us work against climate change (UN SDG 13).

Arbeit

International volunteers will work together with a group of young people with disabilities and local youth from the village of Oberesch, to ecologically enhance an inclusive recreation area. This unique project is a follow-up to a 2018 work camp. The focus and motto of the project is: "Volunteering is for everyone". In recent years, an inclusive recreation area has been created around the small Eschbachweiher Lake, where all people - with or without disabilities - can experience nature: The barefoot path is also designed for people with visual impairments; a fishing spot can also be used by people in wheelchairs; the signs of the ecological nature trail are in plain language...
Together you will maintain and expand the recreation area. Concrete tasks include the construction of a breeding wall for kingfishers, the construction of a shoe rack for the barefoot path, the planting of a meadow orchard, the maintenance of the circular path as well as forestry and landscape maintenance work.
The cooperation of young people across all barriers and borders, the exchange of ideas and point of views and the shared fun are the special values of this volunteering team. In addition to the work, numerous joint excursions and activities are part of the programme.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

The accommodation for the international volunteers will be in the village community centre of Oberesch. Here you can find a big kitchen, a spacious hall as living and sleeping room and toilets and washing room of course. Showers are provided nearby. The accommodation is quite basic, but local people will support you when needed. The local volunteers will spend the night at home.
Your group of volunteers will be responsible for grocery shopping and cooking together. The food will be bought with the camp budget and everybody will take turns for cooking, washing the dishes and cleaning. In order to reduce our carbon footprint on the planet, we encourage volunteers to reduce meat and try more sustainable dishes.

Lage und Freizeit

The project will take place in Oberesch, a small village with 320 inhabitants situated directly at the German-French border, approx. 40km north of Saarbrücken. The local youngsters are already waiting to meet you. In the area you can find several castles and the famous valley of the river Saar, offering many opportunities for nice excursions, even to destinations in France or hiking tours. The region Saarland has a rich history of steel production and coal mining. Many excursions and activities will be done together with the people from Oberesch and from the regional Charity (VIB), thus making the project an unforgettable experience.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Building inclusive bridges! Volunteering is for everyone!
This project is based on the cooperation of IBG with “VIB Saarland” and the local community of Oberesch. The local host “VIB” is a charity organization offering jobs for people with mental or physical disabilities and organising various inclusion projects. Your volunteering team will support them in their inclusion strategy, creating new options for activities for their target group and offering new fields of (intercultural) experiences. The three main aspects of the project are: working together, meeting and having fun together.
Already in 2018, all three partners realised a first international workcamp around the inclusive recreation area together. The experience was really impressive - for IBG, the international volunteers and for the people from Oberesch. After that, several people from the village have become involved in a volunteering project abroad themselves. In recent years, the people of Oberesch and VIB have regularly worked together on different assignments, which led to an intensified cooperation and understanding among them, advanced the project and intensified contact. Now it is time to bring in an international dimension again and everyone is looking forward to the exchange and cooperation with your volunteering team.

Arbeit

The community of Schenkenzell is counting on your help to support them with several landscape management projects around the village. You should expect physical work outside!

Schenkenzell is surrounded by the forest as well as large meadows, which were once used for agriculture.

• Remove invasive plants like fern;
• Clearing a forest meadow off overgrown plants;

In Schenkenzell itself you can find a bakery, a pharmacy, a little supermarket and a public swimming pool. For proper shopping there are bigger supermarkets around 5 km away.

Your group of volunteers will be responsible for grocery shopping and cooking together. The food will be bought with the camp budget and everybody will take turns for cooking and cleaning. In order to reduce our carbon footprint on the planet, we encourage volunteers to reduce meat and try more sustainable plant based dishes.

Lage und Freizeit

Schenkenzell is a quite small community of about 1.800 inhabitants. Nonetheless it has a lot to offer! The village is about 750 years old and it is known for its monastery, well-known brewery and beautiful landscapes, where you can find many hiking trails. This explains why it is a destination very much appreciated both by German and international tourists. During your free time you will have the opportunity to go on hikes in the Black Forest, visit the monastery and the brewery but also go on excursions to cities like Freiburg and Strasbourg (France).

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Schenkenzell is nested in the middle of the Black Forest. In the past, the main activities for the inhabitants were agriculture, farming and mining. Although agriculture and farming have almost died out today, the village is still surrounded by meadows and land, which need to be maintained. This year, the community of Schenkenzell invites an international workcamp for the 6th time and they are always very happy to welcome the volunteers. Your work will be mostly landscape management and this will benefit both the community of Schenkenzell and the people who visit it. In addition, your work in the meadows and the forest will help to protect biodiversity. By joining this project you are actively supporting sustainable communities (UN SDG 11) and biodiversity (UN SDG 15).

Arbeit

Become part of a festival crew and support the organization of a non-profit, free music festival in Stuttgart! Your international group will work together with many other local volunteers. The main tasks will be setting up the stages, stalls and tents on the festival site, as well as taking everything down again at the end. While the festival is running, your group of volunteers will assist in different areas: bar, stage, organisation, catering etc. You will also have time to enjoy the festival yourself. But be prepared to to work long and unusual hours – and enjoy music! Speaking or understanding basic German will be a plus. Your group might be asked to give a short presentation of the workcamp on stage.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

In the first two days, you will be hosted in a cultural centre in Stuttgart, where there is a kitchen and sanitary facilities. You will be sleeping in the building’s hall, where a stage is. We advise these first two days (Monday and Tuesday) for sightseeing. On the third day, you will move to the site of the festival. There you will be camping in a big tent, all together. Please bring your own camping mat and sleeping bag. You can also bring your own tent, if possible. Food will be available through the food stands at the festival, so you will not have to cook for yourselves. Sanitary facilities are provided, but be aware of very basic festival standards: only cold, outdoor showers available and limited privacy compared to “regular” accommodations!

Lage und Freizeit

With 600,000 inhabitants, Stuttgart is the state-capital of Baden-Württemberg. From museums, to castles and parks, to an afternoon spent shopping, this city offers something for everyone! Within a short train ride, you can also enjoy the variety of nature around Stuttgart. The city is surrounded by beautiful vineyards and hills. You can also visit some of the other towns in the area, like Tübingen (approximately 1 hour away) and Ludwigsburg (approximately 30 minutes away), both accessible by public transportation.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

In summer, Stuttgart hosts a variety of music festivals and events. One of those festivals – called “Umsonst & Draussen” (free of charge & outdoors) – will take place close to the campus of the University of Stuttgart, outside the city centre. This year, the organisers are especially looking forward to running the festival again, after a two-year pause due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The festival will run for three days, from 5th to 9th of August (www.ud-stuttgart.de). It is the biggest non-commercial music-politics-culture festival in Stuttgart. “Umsonst & Draussen” is organized in a participative way, where everyone can come and take part. It has been running in that unique and quite anarchic way for over 40 years now! Since 2013, the festival has been hosting workcamps and the international volunteers have become an important part in the festival organisation. By helping to organize this communal festival, you are contributing to a sustainable and inclusive community (UN SDG 11).

You will be accommodated in an apartment between Niefern and Öschelbronn, which belongs to the city. In the apartment there are 2-3 different rooms for you to sleep in – they can be separated by gender if you wish so. Camp beds are provided but please, bring your own sleeping bag! There is also one equipped kitchen as well as one bathroom with toilets inside. Your group of volunteers will be responsible for grocery shopping and cooking together. The food will be bought with the camp budget and everybody will take turns for cooking and cleaning. In order to reduce our carbon footprint on the planet, we encourage volunteers to reduce meat and try more sustainable dishes.

NEXT TRAIN STATION: Saarburg NEXT international busses/trains: Saarbrücken, Trier NEXT AIRPORT: Luxemburg (LUX) – from Luxemburg airport it takes approximately 2 hours to get to Saarburg.

Arbeit

Come to Kastel-Staadt and help this community to turn a fountain and historic washing place into an attractive resting area for hikers. Kastel-Staadt is a village with a rich cultural heritage (the name comes from a Roman castell that used to be here). It is situated on a rocky outcrop above the Saar valley. The regionally famous hiking trail "Felsenpfad" leads around the village over rocks, steep slopes and passes many cultural heritages. You will work together with local volunteers to convert the historic washing place into an attractive resting place for the thousands of hikers, who walk this trail every year. The former washing place is located at a spring in the forest, about 100m from the village. The old red sandstone washing stones are still there, but the place is no longer in use. You will upgrade it by setting up:
• a spring catchment
• dry stone walls;
• benches and tables, etc.
This way, hikers can take a break here in the shade, children can play by the water and the historic site will be revitalised. Smaller other work tasks will be added as needed. The work will be led by a professional instructor, so no previous experience is needed. You will work 30 hours per week, and your group will commonly decide on how to spend your free time.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will live and sleep in the former school which is the community centre now. You can use the large hall (one area for sleeping and one as living room). A full equipped kitchen, Wi-Fi, toilets and a shower are provided. In the same building, the local youth have a room to meet and the music ensemble practices in the attic. It is a listed historic building designed by a famous German architect in 1840 as a village school. Camp beds or mattresses will be provided, but please bring a sleeping bag. Outside the community centre, you have plenty of space to play games and sports. Volunteers will cook together and share kitchen and cleaning tasks.

Lage und Freizeit

Kastel-Staadt is a small village (400 inhabitants) on a rocky plateau high above the Saar. The place has a long history: there was a Roman fort and a fortified settlement here even before the first century. Many sights, such as a Roman amphitheatre for over 3,000 spectators and a hermitage from the middle age can be found in Kastel-Staadt. The border Germany-Luxemburg is not far (10km airline). Due to its location on this rocky plateau, the place is somewhat isolated today. There is almost no public transport; the road ends in the village. The nearest bakery and pubs are 5km (and 200 metres in altitude), the nearest supermarket 10km away. Therefore, be prepared that only a few excursions will be possible. Much of the free time is spent in nature (the region is perfect for hiking) or in common activities with the local population. But you will certainly visit Saarburg, a small town with a castle, a medieval town centre, a famous waterfall and mills, vineyards, many tourists, a swimming pool, a chairlift and a summer toboggan run and much more.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The village of Kastel-Staadt is asking for the support of international volunteers for the first time this year. They have had the idea for this project for several years, but so far the Covid-19 pandemic has prevented its realisation. They are all the more pleased that it will work in 2022. The village community has developed many projects to make the place attractive and lively. Your work project is another piece in the mosaic of this concept. Besides the work, however, the encounters are just as important. So be prepared to get deeply involved in village life.
Apply now to support us and join the first international workcamp in the village of Kastel-Staadt!

Anreise zum Treffpunkt
