This workcamp is about helping to maintain a beautiful biosphere area while learning about “Waldpädagogik” (forest education)! During two weeks, you will support the forest school “Waldschulheim Indelhausen”, a place of non-formal environmental education for school classes.
This workcamp has two objectives.
- The first one is to help the foresters with diverse environmental tasks every morning (2,5 to 3h), which will help to protect the surrounding biosphere area.
- The second one is to learn about forest education and contribute to the forest school’s educative programme.
You want to learn how the knowledge about forests is transmitted to young people in Germany? Then this is the perfect workcamp for you! In the mornings you will work outside with the foresters and in the afternoons you will participate to different workshops about themes such as climate change, the forest ecosystem and economy or biodiversity conservation. During your workcamp, there will be a German school class (7th class, so 13 years old) staying at the forest school too. During some activities, you will be in contact with them. If you’re interested, you will have the possibility to co-organise workshops relating to forest education for your group and/or the school class.
This is a special project for nature lovers and people interested in learning about nature protection work and how to pass on important knowledge about forests to future generations.
