Arbeit

In this workcamp you will help to prepare the site’s infrastructure for the construction of a yurt and a planned “nature kindergarten”. This means creating paths and helping to prepare the garden and the flowerbeds for the forthcoming summer season. 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. You will be able to cook and eat meals together. In case of extreme cold or bad weather conditions, you will be accommodated in an alternative and better insulated housing.

Lage und Freizeit

Schwäbisch Gmünd is a city with roughly 60000 inhabitants and a marvelous historic city centre which is best enjoyed with a warm coffee in one of its cafés. The project site is situated at an old farm and very close to the train station, from which you can reach the city within a 15 minute walk. 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?

The Sozialkraftwerk is a non-profit organisation who plans to open a kindergarten which aims for a holistic and innovative approach to pre-school education. In a safe setting of two yurts – connected by a level deck and surrounded by 2 hectares of land – children of mixed ages will take first steps towards participating in society and learning how to practice sustainability and how to shape and partake in social changes. You can find more information on the project partner on https://sozialkraftwerk.de/. In this project you are actively working for quality education (UN SDG 4 Quality Education) and helping to support biodiversity (UN SDG 15 Life on Land).

Weitere Infos

Working languages will be English and German. It is helpful, but not mandatory to have a basic knowledge of German. Ideally you are able to ride a bike as the host may provide cargo bikes to make bigger shopping tours in the city. The accommodation is very basic (it's a tent).

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!

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.

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

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.

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.

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).
