Travail

You will be part of the daily work in our 6 hectares big organic outdoor gardening. In June, the primary work tasks are to exterminate weeds, harvest and sell vegetables. We also have some goats and hens that need to be fed, and if you have building skills we can also find some construction projects. Besides the work, we will, of course, have time to participate in cultural events in the local area and do smaller trips to the sea and the fiord.

Logement et nourriture

Sleeping facilities: All participants will sleep together in a big living room on mattresses. There will also be tents if anybody prefers that option. We have mattresses for everybody, but you need to bring a sleeping bag yourself. Kitchen + bathroom facilities: There is a kitchen with all kitchen equipment, and a fireplace available for cooking. The Work Camp group will cook for each other and make breakfast, lunch and dinner together with the two camp leaders. The cost of the groceries will be covered by the Work Camp host.

The work will take place before and after the Festival where we will be in charge of building/putting up and taking down – Fences, tents, festival-bars, floors and much more. We are working with sustainability as well. There will be a lot of other volunteers which makes it a wonderful place to socialize, making friends and get that special connection with peers that might last a lifetime. Remember that we are “off duty” during the festival and therefore are forced to enjoy ourselves and listen to good music in between work ;-) We will be working together in teams before and after the festival between 09.30-20.00

Logement et nourriture

Sleeping and toilet facilities: We will be sleeping two and two in tents in a quiet area at the festival.

Please contact us if you have any suggestions about things you want to do or go see – then we’ll see if we can work something out You are each expected to give us and the other volunteers a little lecture about your country – may it be a presentation, a language course or anything that provides us with some basic knowledge about you and your culture. You decide how you want to structure it; it just has to last for about 10 minutes. Just be free and creative.

Travail

The purpose of the work is to maintain the volunteer camping area, so the volunteers that stay there are able to have the best experience as possible. The tasks will involve patrolling around the camp together with other volunteers, checking peoples wristbands at the entrance of the camp and helping the supervisors facilitate and create 2 fun and social events at the camp. The working hours will consist of around 8-hour working shifts for patrolling duty. These are divided by 3 shifts a day. One in the morning, one in the evening and one in the night. Each volunteer has to do at least 4 (one of them has to be a night shift and one has to be during the music days). The shifts for working with the supervisor to make events might start in the morning, and will involve discussion, practical manual work in setting it up and facilitating it and should not take longer than 8 hours also. The 2 events will be divided among the 20 volunteers which in total should amass to 37-40 hours per volunteer for their festival stay. One event will be making a social community dinner together with the supervisor at the volunteer base camp for all those who would like to come. The other task will be before the music starts, and that will be repainting and decorating our container that is stationary at the camp. Here we can be creative and do something amazing with our imaginations. Every morning at 11, a meeting will also be held where you will be able to choose a concert to go to together if you wish for. We will also exchange information, talk about your experience so far and solve any issues you might have.

Logement et nourriture

Sleeping facilities: You will be sleeping in tents with sleeping bags. The host will try to reserve a space so that all Work Camp volunteers are able to stay at the same place. The supervisors will also be staying there. As of now, it might be necessary to bring your own tent besides a sleeping bag. In the near future, we might update the information if we are able to get some tents set up before arrival from what we have currently. Kitchen + bathroom facilities: There will be a possibility to cook basic food, at the volunteer camp base. After every shift, the volunteer is given food tickets, that can be used anywhere in the festival (one ticket per shift). It is possible to buy some food in the town of Roskilde. It should take no longer than 20 minutes to get to the town. There will be camping showers available at the volunteer camping similar to these ones: In term of laundry, it is possible to do this at the festival, as the festival offers laundry services very close to the volunteer camping for a price (around 50 DKK per wash).

Situation, loisirs

The whole town of Roskilde will be consumed by the festival. During Leisure time, when not on shift the volunteers are welcome to join the music that will be taking place on various stages. There are many bands coming and it can be seen here: https://www.roskilde-festival.dk/en/line-up/ In terms of exploring the town or local area, there are a few attractions and could be seen here: https://www.visitroskilde.com/

Commentaires additionnels

The festival is the biggest one in Denmark and this will be the 50th anniversary so expect something special. It is generally surrounded by good vibes and amazing people. And all of your participation and help also supports us, as we get more budget for the various projects around the world. The work is generally placed outdoors. The weather in Denmark is unpredictable even though the festival is taking place during the summer, it might be important to bring a waterproof coat, some sweaters for the evening. But also, some shorts and flip flops because if the heatwave hits like a few years ago, it will be extremely warm. The language that will be spoken throughout the work will be English therefore it is mandatory that all participants speak it. Please do not be intimidated that some of your fellow volunteers may not be able to or are too shy to start speaking in English. Everyone is generally nice and are able to speak English. Previous experience is not needed, as you will be instructed fully on what the work consists of. It is not hard work but could be seen as slow sometimes. Concerning the events, it might be a plus if you have some experience in facilitating and creating events.

Remarques

Unfortunately, we cannot take participants with disabilities.

Travail

The aim of the workcamp is to help create the best possible building festival. Week 1: The week starts with two introduction days followed by a day of helping out at a wedding party on Friday 3rd July. It is two of our friends who are getting married, so fancy clothes are not expected. This week we will be setting up the festival by sorting wood, moving stuff around and making signs and decoration for the festival. You will also be working in the building area, bar, outdoor kitchen, dishwashing area, toilets sleeping area and the music stage. This week we take shifts in cooking for each other. Week 2: In this week, we are hosting the festival. Shifts include: ”check-in zone”, ”kitchen”, ”kids zone” and “tool shop.” We also need one or two volunteers to work with taking photos, videos and making Social Media posts. Note that all festival guests are also assigned to minimum one volunteer shift (bar shifts, kitchen shifts, toilet maintenance and cleaning shifts), as the concept is a co-creating festival. Week 3: In this week, we are taking the festival apart, save stuff for next years festival and cleaning up the festival area. Further, we are making evaluations on the workcamp stay and the festival in general.

Logement et nourriture

Everyone should bring a minimum a sleeping bag and a pillow. We have new bamboo toothbrushes, toothpaste and shampoo available here. Please also bring appropriate working shoes and clothes both indoor and outdoor - the style does not matter. We recommend that you bring your own tent. We will try to get tents for everyone who wants one but we can’t make promises before we know how many need one. From experience we know that some people might not want to stay in tents due to temperatures (normally ranges 10-25 degree celsius, with few days of heavy winds). Therefore, there will also be an option to borrow a mattress and sleep inside in a big room with others. We have washing machines, kitchen facilities, toilets and showers. We encourage everyone to swim at the beach located a few hundred meters away. Everyone will take part in cooking, according to a plan we decide on together, as part of the work you will do during your stay. During the festival, we will have food served three times a day (all vegan/ vegetarian). We all clean together.

Situation, loisirs

We are located by the sea (with our own sandy beach), in the countryside, but only five kilometres from Ebeltoft – a lovely small city known as a great tourist destination. In your spare time, we have many things to do or see, and you can borrow a bike to explore the surrounding area. Some days it might be possible to borrow a car to take a trip, maybe to see Mols National Park or Denmarks second-largest city, Aarhus (45 minutes away by car).

Partenaire

We are creating a festival for 600 festival guest lasting six full days. The festival concept is: build your own festival. Our goal is to enhance learning, craft skills, cultural exchange and make a movement around co-creation. Our goal is to create a sustainable festival with a focus on zero waste and to plant trees (last year we raised 3.000 euros for tree planting. At the festival, people can choose to build their own projects or join projects. We provide free tools and recycled building materials for everyone. Even though we focus on the building aspect, the festival is so much more, featuring live bands and DJ ́s every night and workshops during the day. It is a co-creation festival, everyone helps to create the experience. The festival is only a small project part of a much greater project and vision. The large project called “Grobund” (meaning fertile soil) includes 160 people who have crowdfunded money to buy a large factory and 10 hectares of land, with the ambition of making a new off-grid tiny house eco-village and share factory facilities for green start-ups companies. The workcamp is organized by Noa Skovdal and Tore Muurholm Dahl and you can read more about the building festival on www.byggefest.dk and about the Grobund community on www.grobund.org.

Youth Island is open, but it is far from finished. On this camp, we continue already started projects, start some new ones and hopefully end most of them all. We will be building constructions like a floating sauna, an upcycled hot tub, upcycled flowerbeds, a pizza oven and perhaps much more. We will also be renovating parts of the old fortress, so the island can be even better for other youths to come and use. Thus, we can promise you lots of practical experience, knowledge of building techniques and space for unfolding your creativity. We do everything we can to build environmentally friendly using natural materials or upcycling used ones #LeaveNoTrace

Ungdomsøen (aka Youth Island) is an island located just a short ferry ride from Copenhagen - a historic youth project in the middle of the Øresund! Ungdomsøen will strengthen young people in their journey to become active, committed and curious citizens who take responsibility for each other, for their communities, and the development of our societies. The island is an old sea fortress full of places to hide and get lost. In 2015 it was acquired and donated to the danish scout movement. With major help from foundations and after 4 years of renovation, 130 million DKK and 70.000 hours of voluntary work, Ungdomsøen opened in August 2019 and is now ready to be invaded by the youth. Ungdomsøen has an area of 50,000 m2. Inside the island there is more than 16,000 m2 and 1.8 km of underground pathways, so even though the island may seem small from the distance there is plenty of space for activities and expeditions. Ungdomsøen has five dogmas. These dogmas have developed through conversations with thousands of young people to the opening. 1. Doing > learning: This dogma is a counterweight to the focus on learning found in formal education systems. Experience creates learning. 2. Youth for youth: An island by, for and together with young people. We have a unique organizational trust in young people’s abilities. 3. Disturbance: Ungdomsøen must challenge, interfere with existing thought patterns and provide new perspectives. We must challenge habits and traditions and do something outside what we usually do. 4. Outreach: Many doors in, so everyone can join. The island must gather individuals – who do not naturally come together – into new communities. 5. Island and Country: Ungdomsøen is not just something we play at. It will change and create cohesion beyond its physical borders. You do not have to be on the island to do Ungdomsø-activities. The five dogmas set the direction for everything that happens on the island including the Summercamp, that you can join. Your main contacts will be 2 young volunteers, Anton and Nina. As the island opened in August 2019, we haven’t had a Work Camp like this before. But since 2015 we have had numerous building-camps/weekends. On these, we have cleaned out, painted, build shelters and made barbeque dinners while seeing the sun setting behind Copenhagens skyline. If you want to know more, check out: https://ungdomsoen.dk/

Point de rendez-vous

The meeting point is Nyhavn 71, Copenhagen (Close to Nyhavn metro station) at 16.00 on the 19th of July. (Arrive in good time, the ferry sails at 16:00) On the day of departure, you will leave the camp at 13:45

Commentaires additionnels

Be aware, as we are on an Island the possibilities of leaving the camp to go shopping etc. after end work, are quite limited. Most of the work will be outside, on the island in the middle of the ocean where it can be windy, so bring cloth for both warm and cold weather. English will be the only language spoken. All participants must be willing to speak English, even though being from the same country or having troubles with the English language. Try your best!

Remarques

We welcome volunteers with disabilities, but you might want to consider your safety, as the terrain on the Island is uneven and there are a lot of hills and inclines.

We need your help to build the festival and take it down, therefore you will work before and after the festival. The festival lasts from 30th July to 1rst August where you will have the days off to enjoy it. You will be part of a team of volunteers building the festival. It is manual work and it will be an advantage with knowledge of tools, but it is not required. Your tasks will change from day to day, where you might help set up a stage one day, build a bar the next or carry fences. A team leader will instruct you on what to do. All volunteers on our production team meet at 10 am every day and work until 6 pm. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided on workdays. During the festival, you will be given three food vouchers each day, which you can use in our main food stand to get a meal. Our production team is unlike any other team in Alive Festival. Volunteers work together for a longer period and the spirit when building the festival is very cheery and exciting among the hard work. Many of our volunteers are returning each year to help set up the festival and they know everything there is to know about Thisted and Alive Festival.

Logement et nourriture

Sleeping facilities: Volunteers bring their own tents, mattresses and sleeping bags. There will be toilets installed at the camping area and bath facilities, but it is also possible to use the bath and toilet in a building known as URT. We are currently looking for other accommodation possibilities and we hope to find another solution for the volunteers in 2020. But as it is now it will be in tents – true festival style! Kitchen + bathroom facilities: In URT we have a common room, where breakfast, lunch and dinner are served during the days you are working. In the evening, when all the work is done, you can stay in the common room if you want to play a board game or just to relax for a bit. Our kitchen facilities will be preoccupied as soon as we start building the festival, so it will not be possible to cook for yourselves. During the festival, the food will not be served, though you will receive food vouchers.

The Silo Youth Project is set in the industrial part of Struer Harbor. close to the Fjord and beautiful nature. The core mission is to create a broad organization where the Youths can do what they love, pursue their passion, inspire each other, exchange their ideas, and embark on new initiatives. Our goal is to convert the old industrial silo to an urban cultural venue where you can experience music, dance, theatre, art, workshops and a whole lot more. The work camp will be centred around setting up and building temporary structures for the Silo Youth Project and festival ground at the harbour. Struer - The City of Sound is a small town with about 10,000 inhabitants. The local society is built on a strong philosophy working around sound, innovation and technology. Sound became an important part of the city’s DNA due to the large impact from the audio industry, which arose from the establishment of Bang & Olufsen in 1925. The silo project is non-profit and is organized by a local youth organization, with backing from Struer Municipality and Struer Library. We have a broad backing of creative youths, residing in or around Struer or locals who have moved to the major cities who are returning to participate in the Silo Project.

The school is a folk high school and will have students and course participants (50 people from approx. 12 different countries) during the Work Camp. They have their own program but there will be many opportunities for volunteers to interact with the students, especially during dinner and through different social activities during the evenings and weekends. Volunteers are expected to follow the rules of the school. We want to make sure that you appreciate, that our Work Camp is not a party camp, - but a camp where we want to share our cultures. We do have our own parties though! There will be two camp leaders who are former students from the school. There will be different work leaders to teach you how to build and work. Normal workday is 6-7 hours.

Remarques

People, who are used to work with their hands in combination with artistic skills, will be preferred for this Work Camp and volunteers are expected to be ready to share their culture with the other participants and students at the school.  Special motivation letters and other requirements should be attached to the info-sheet. It will be amazing if you are also a green thinker! Unfortunately, we cannot take a participant with disabilities.   English at a conversational level is required.

For hosting you on this camp Præstø Outdoor are collaborating with Bosei Folkhighschool, which is placed inside Faksinge Forest and is the home of approx. 70 students, mainly aged 20-30, who are interested in sports, Japanese culture and personal development. This means that they are more than used to hosting and offering a wide range of fun activities for young people. Bosei is currently working towards more sustainability and is among other things wanting to start producing their own organic vegetables. You can visit Bosei’s webpage here: https://www.bosei.dk/en/ Or see a video of the place here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_uQa0KApvYY

Commentaires additionnels

Volunteers are expected to follow the rules of the school. We want to make sure that you appreciate, that our workcamp is not a party camp - but a camp where we meet each other in a mutual understanding of a wish, to share culture from the world. All work will be outdoors, quite physical and mainly in the forest no matter the weather. Although it is generally nice in Denmark this time of year, you can never know, so you must be prepared to face both sunshine and rain and get some dirt on your hands. It is preferable, but not required to have some kind of practical skills, since you are to build, paint, etc.

Remarques

People, who are used to work with their hands in combination with artistic skills, will be preferred to the work camp and volunteers are expected to be ready to share their culture with the other participants and students at the school. Special motivation letters and other requirements may be attached to the info-sheet. Unfortunately, we cannot accept participants with disabilities, due to the physical nature of the work English at a conversational level is required.

Partenaire

The camp project is supervised by a steering group including: • The Association of people from the island of Mandø • Wadden Sea National Park • The Municipality of Esbjerg • The Danish Agency for Nature • The Danish Fund for Nature. The Wadden Sea National Park was established in 2010 and is Denmark's biggest national park (1459 km2). The aim is to conserve, protect and strengthen the natural and cultural-historical values of the area and support a sustainable development, which can be beneficial for guests, local development and the local population. The Wadden Sea National Park is born into the trilateral collaboration with Denmark, Germany and Netherlands to protect the Wadden Sea. The Wadden Sea is also UNESCO World Heritage – world heritage shared between Denmark, Germany and Netherlands - stretching over 500 km from Ho (Denmark) in the north to Den Helder (Netherlands) in the south. The island of Mandø (8 km2) is located in the middle of the Wadden Sea in Denmark and the highest point (the dunes) is 12 m above the sea. It is a unique island with 30 local inhabitants and some tourists, mainly day-trippers, during summer, autumn and spring. There are no bridges or ferries to the island, instead, you can drive by bicycle, car or tractor two times a day, when the tide is right. People on Mandø are very active. They live in the village of Mandø and have organized themselves into local associations which aim for protecting the natural and cultural values of the island of Mandø as well securing workplaces, setting up local events and activities for the local population, visitors and tourists. On the island of Mandø, you will find a café, a bed & breakfast, a (small) camping site, an inn, a small hostel, some summer bungalows, a few farms, a church, a museum, a small grocery and open, friendly people, who are used to do things together and help each other.
