Arbeit

Help youngsters in the local society:
The work we do is important for the community and forms something cultural in our area for young people. Before Gnist Festival there was no local place for youngsters to express themselves with the music or art talent that they possess. We give them a professional environment where they can show what they got! And of course, socialize with other youngsters.

Festival preparations:
There will be quite a lot of variety in the work tasks. In the first few days, we will need to transform the open area (in which the festival is held) into a festival with a food court, two stages, and a lot of decoration. All the work will take place outside, and it can be a bit cold with a chance of rain, so dress accordingly. The work is not too intense, and we like to have a good time prepping for the festival days. Some work will start the day you arrive, but you will of course have time to settle in.

The work itself will the first few days be a combination of work, breaks, and leisure time, in that sense that we have some prepping that needs to be done before a deadline. The work consists, for example, of making signs, painting the signs, setting up toilet/bath trolleys, and setting up the two stages (There will be professional people to guide and do most of the work with the stages, we just need to help them a bit) and a lot of other things that will appear on the days.

Festival days:
On the actual festival days, the volunteers will get a schedule with 2 x 4-hour shifts, which may include: Standing behind a bar, cleaning toilets or the festival area, guarding the entrance, or another job that we need at that specific time.

Practicalities:
No experience is needed, just passion! There are no language requirements, but there must be a way to communicate with the organizers. The organizers speak Danish and English. No need for specific documents.

On the festival days, there will be professional safety and Samaritans. There will be some organizers (also young volunteers) who will know the big picture and make sure that everything goes as planned. There will also be other local volunteers, who will work beside you with the same work, together with you.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Sleeping facilities:
The festival has a sleeping area, where during the actual festival days the guest and the volunteers will sleep in tents. We will also sleep in that area on the days leading up to the festival days. We can provide tents for you, just let us know. Then you just need to bring sleeping bags and an air mattress or similar.

Bathroom facilities:
The showers are shared in the bathroom trolly. The toilets have running water, and there will be always fresh drinking water accessible.

Kitchen facilities:
There will not be access to a kitchen, but we will provide every meal. Let us know if you are vegetarian, vegan, or if you have any other dietary restrictions. It will be professionally cooked food.

There will be electricity at a garage we use as a workshop nearby the sleeping area, but we cannot promise there will be Wi-Fi. There is no washer or dryer.

The place is quite isolated but there are neighbours around the area, so you must take that into account and not listen to very loud music after 11 pm.

Lage und Freizeit

The area is close to the sea, and it is a bit out in the countryside. The area is an old military missile launcher site, but it’s empty except for two garages we use for the festival.

The festival will also need one or two volunteers to work with taking photos and videos for social media posts.

Lage und Freizeit

The festival is located by the sea, in the countryside, but only five km. from Ebeltoft – a lovely small city known as a great tourist destination.

In your spare time, there are many things to do and see, and you can borrow a bike to explore the surrounding area. We cannot guarantee bikes for everyone at the same time, so you might need to share. Some days it might be possible to borrow a car to take a trip. Mols National Park or Denmark's second-largest city, Aarhus is possible to visit.

Your Work Camp leaders will help you and the group with organizing activities in your spare time. It is free to enjoy the beautiful nature of Ebeltoft, but some activities might require an extra charge. The host will not cover additional charges.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The Build-It Festival is a unique and interesting event that combines hands-on building activities with a focus on sustainability and environmental awareness. By giving attendees the opportunity to learn new skills and create something from recycled materials, the festival not only provides a fun and creative experience but also helps promote the importance of reducing waste and conserving resources.

In addition to the building activities, the festival also features music and concerts, workshops, talks, and camping by the sea. It's a perfect escape from the city and an opportunity to connect with people. Last year, the festival saw 800 attendees, and this year the organizers are hoping for even more.

The Build-it Festival is made possible by a dedicated crew and many volunteers. During the festival week, all attendees help, which creates a unique co-ownership of the festival and the overall festival experience. Furthermore, the festival is located at Grobund Factory, which is a community of entrepreneurs and a soon-to-be eco-village.

You will actively contribute to renovating and creating an inviting and exciting environment on the Island. As stated, this is an Island for the youth, which is why this Work Camp will focus on projects that aim at building, renovating, and fixing e.g., nice outdoor facilities (e.g., a pizza oven, outdoor kitchen, lounge furniture) and helping the operations team with projects.

We will be ready to help and guide you throughout the camp, so there are no expectations of your previous practical experience. The most important thing is that you want to join us in creating the best possible place for the youth to hang out and realize their dreams.

At Ungdomsøen we value the environment, so we will do our very best effort to make sure that we build sustainably and environmentally friendly through and through.

Ungdomsøen is a place full of potential and opportunities. A place to hang out, do activities, and create encounters between young people of all kinds. It is of utmost importance, that we create the most awesome environment from where awesome projects can arise.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Accommodation: You will be sleeping in one of our two 10-person dormitories, but it will also be possible for you to either sleep in a tent or in a shelter if you prefer (you should be ready to share the shelter with others from the Work Camp).

We have tents, mattresses, and sleeping bags, that are available if you want to sleep outdoors. If you want to sleep in the dormitories, you must bring your own linen. We will provide a mattress, duvet, and pillow.

Bathroom facilities: There are lots of new restrooms and baths and there is a washing machine at your disposal.

Kitchen facilities: We will be cooking together in smaller teams in our communal kitchen. Do you have any allergies or preferences, just let us know before arrival. In addition, two times a week a small group of us will sail to Copenhagen to do grocery shopping (paid for by the Youth Island)

WIFI is available.

Lage und Freizeit

You are going to spend your off-time on the Island; thus, we will be planning some social activities like kayaking, stand-up- paddle-boarding, campfires, and day trips to Copenhagen.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Ungdomsøen (aka Youth Island) is an island located just a short ferry ride from Copenhagen.

Ungdomsøen’s mission is to strengthen young people in their journey to become active, committed, and curious citizens who take responsibility for each other, for their communities, and for 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 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.

All of our actions at Ungdomsøen are based on our vision: To be an Island for the youth. Everything we do on the Island aims at creating an inviting environment/project for, with and by young people.

Your main contacts will be two young volunteers, Leander & Kristian, who have lived on the Island since august 2022.

Arbeit

For the Summer Camp to run smoothly, we very much rely on volunteers, who are interested in helping with different practicalities. Your important effort will make a very positive change for the participants, as you will contribute to the framework of the Table Tennis Camp, which aims at empowering people, developing their skills, and bringing them together towards their common passion for badminton.

The camp is especially good for you if you like to engage with people in a very international environment, and if you are interested in improving your teamwork and problem-solving skills because the work requires that you can adapt to changes quickly.

When it comes to the specific tasks, there will be a rotation between them to make the days vary for all volunteers. These different tasks can include assisting in the kitchen, with all practicalities such as cooking and serving the food to the other camp participants. Similar tasks can include helping with cleaning assistance or driving shuttle buses to and from the airport, train station, and ferry terminals. Other tasks could be overseeing activities with the camp participants and the smallest children and finally helping in the administration with check-in, check-out, and room preparations.

It will also be possible to be a sparring partner in the Table Tennis Camp and interact with the camp participants. Therefore, it would be an advantage if you enjoy playing badminton and would like to practise it some more, but no experience is needed. We welcome people at all levels! In addition, it will be possible for you to continue playing badminton in your free time.

As a volunteer, your work week will consist of 5 working days and 2 days off, though these days will be rotating between you. This means that you might have to work at the weekend, but then you will have time off during the week. Your workday will be no more than 7 hours, and you will be working with local volunteers. Work starts in the morning and the afternoon. Some tasks, like being a part of the administration or the driving team mean that you must work at different times during the day.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Accommodation:
The volunteers will be sleeping in classrooms. There will be mattresses, pillows, and bedding.

Food:
All Work Camp participants eat in the canteen with all the other participants. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided by the Work Camp host.

Bathroom facilities:
The bathrooms are next to the classrooms where you will be sleeping.

Your Work Camp leaders will help you and the group with organising activities in your spare time.

The Work Camp will be taking place remarkably close to the beach, so there are incredibly good opportunities to go for a swim. It is also very much possible to explore the nearby towns by going sightseeing or shopping.

For instance, you can arrange a day trip to Skagen, which is the most Northern tip of Denmark where the two oceans meet. Skagen is especially famous for its yellow and red houses, art galleries, delicious seafood, and special light, which has attracted many painters to the town. You can also take a day trip to Aalborg, the third biggest city in Denmark, where you find a large variety of shopping opportunities while enjoying the cosy atmosphere in the iconic and old streets.

Another option is to visit Hjørring, a city less than 15 km from the sea and beautiful sandy beaches. One of the other neighbouring towns is called Hirtshals, and it has the biggest Aquarium in Northern Europe. In another neighbouring town is the biggest summer amusement park in Denmark, named Fårup.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The Work Camp will be a part of our annual International Table Tennis Summer Camp. The exciting Summer Camp has existed for 17 years and is arranged by B75, which is a value-based table tennis club with professional trainers and players.

During the Summer Camp, 200 trainers and players from all over the world will gather for three weeks of learning, fun, friends-making, and sharing of their common passion for badminton.

We need your help to build the festival and take it down, therefore you will work before and after the festival. The festival takes place from 27th July to 29th July and you will have the days off to enjoy it. You will also have a day off before the festival begins in between the workdays.

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 every morning and work until the afternoon (with breaks in between). 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 at 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.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Sleeping facilities:
The volunteers can sleep in tents or sleep indoors in a scout cabin close to the festival site. Every morning you will meet with the other volunteers at Plantagehuset located right next to the festival site. Plantagehusets lower floor is used as a gathering point for all volunteers on the days before, during, and after the festival. In the evening, when all the work is done, you can stay in the common room in Plantagehuset if you want to play a board game or just relax for a bit.

Volunteers bring their own sleeping mats and sleeping bags. Volunteers also need to bring their own tents for those who want to have the full festival experience. If it’s any problem we can help the volunteers to buy these items in the city of Thisted.

Kitchen AND bathroom facilities:
We have a common room in Plantagehuset where breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served during the days you are working. All the food we provide and serve is vegetarian. 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 you can use instead.

There will be toilets installed at the camping area and bath facilities. There are also toilets in the scout cabin and Plantagehuset and it is possible to use the bath in a building known as URT.

Lage und Freizeit

Alive Festival is located in Thisted, a small town in an area known for its national park essential for long walks and exploration. Not far from Thisted you will find the west coast also known as Cold Hawaii, famous for its surfing facilities.

The beach, wild nature and charming surrounding towns are essential for summer vacations.
In the evening, when all the work is done, you can also stay in the common room on the festival site, if you want to play a board game or just relax for a bit.

Your Work Camp leaders will help you and the group with organising activities in your spare time. It is free to enjoy the beautiful nature of Thisted, but some activities might require an extra charge. The host will not cover additional charges.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Alive Festival is where excellent music meets locally produced beers and food in magnificent natural settings.

The music festival is set in a mix of urban and forest surroundings. The ambitious music line-up covers indie rock, pop, electro as well as world music with a strong focus on up-and-coming bands. The intimate settings guarantee a festival experience, unlike others. You will eat food locally produced in Thy and craft beers brewed at Thisted’s brewery, Thisted Bryghus.

Nature meets culture where Alive Festival each year is proud to announce new initiatives besides the festival. In previous years, guests and volunteers could enjoy Cold Hawaii’s surf school, a hike in the national park, and visits to Thisted Bryghus.

2023 is the 15th time Alive Festival will take place. Since 2009, the festival has developed from a small and locally known festival to an acclaimed festival welcoming 2500 guests and 550 volunteers.

This Work Camp aims both at combatting plastic pollution and spreading awareness about the importance of keeping our oceans clean from waste.

The work consists of collecting waste that is washed up from the sea and cleaning the coast on selected stretches. While working you can enjoy the fresh air, the beautiful nature, and the fantastic view of the beaches becoming cleaner and cleaner, thanks to your highly valued and important work!

Arbeit

When working with sustainability and resilience getting the most out of what you are given is a must. Especially natural resources. This year we will therefore be working around “gathering and storing natural resources” one of the twelve permaculture principles. The main natural resource we will be working with for the Work Camp is water.

This will involve building new water trapping and storing constructions, but also maintaining and reworking already existing water gathering structures at the school. There will be set tasks but also space for volunteers to explore solutions and experiment with these.

One of the main tasks is also reworking the “green roof” on our “strawberry House”. You should expect to be outside every day and work with garden tools. For instance, you will be digging and moving soil, working with smaller power tools, reworking garden infrastructures, and building smaller constructions for catching, transporting, and storing water. We believe in being very aware, green, and organic in our thoughts and talks, and in our way of living at the school. There will be a lot of different jobs to do with this focus. There may also be maintenance to do on former Work Camp projects/constructions. All projects will be focusing on environmental and green solutions.

During camp, we will take time to debate sustainability and resilience. You will be introduced to permaculture, its ethics, and its principles. We will be having conversations about sustainability and permaculture - not only as an environmental issue but on all levels - including sustainability among people and cultures. Please be prepared for practical work for 6-7 hours a day.

There will be two camp leaders who are former students from the school, and different work leaders to teach you how to build and work.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Accommodation:
You will be staying in a tented camp in the middle of our garden.

Food:
The food is mainly organic and is served three times a day by our kitchen staff. You should expect to assist after dinner, by cleaning the dishes. At the weekends, you will take part in cooking dinner.

Bathroom Facilities:
You will have full access to the showers and toilets at the school for all three weeks.
It is possible to use the school's washing machines for free.

Lage und Freizeit

Brenderup is located on the island of Fyn in the central part of Denmark. The village Brenderup (2.000 inhabitants) is close to the beach, forests, and idyllic countryside.

You will have free access to our different workshops during the camp, including recycling design, music, art, and gym workshops. There is wireless internet at the school. Bicycles can be rented for the whole stay.

Your Work Camp leaders will help you and the group with organizing activities in your spare time. It is free to enjoy the beautiful nature around Brenderup, but some activities might require an extra charge. The host will not cover additional charges.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Brenderup Folk High School (or the Academy for Intercultural Learning) is hosting this Work Camp. The school is working as a boarding school with an international approach and accepts both Danish and foreign students. You can read more about the school here: http://www.brenderuphojskole.dk/filer/english.htm

For many years, the school has hosted Work Camps that have supported the building process of their environmentally friendly buildings, such as a straw bale culture and music hall “the Strawberry House”, an ellipse-shaped “Lotus House”, which is functioning as a workshop for outdoor living activities, a treetop shelter and an organic fitness center in our garden, where nature is used instead of artificial machine equipment.

For the last two years we have focused on finishing and retouching our “off-Grid House” – “Casa Verde”, incorporating ideas and concepts from previous years about building sustainably. “Casa Verde” is a cob house inside a plastic membrane – it is built to produce everything - all energy - within its own walls. Last year we also built the composting station, and decorated and made paths in our garden between all our sustainable houses.

Over the past years we, have been incorporating permaculture as a stable concept and tool in our garden planning – this not only works sustainably but also works towards creating resiliency. The permaculture ethics of “good for nature, good for people, and equal share” is something that is already engrained in our school’s DNA from the very beginning.

Our garden is approximately 1000 square meters. Within our garden we have multiple smaller gardens; we have a food forest, a permaculture garden with perennial vegetables, a market garden-style vegetable garden and a medicinal herb garden to mention a few.

The purpose of the Work Camp is to help with projects that the staff normally have little time to do at school. Therefore, there will be quite a variety of work tasks during the Work Camp. The work consists for example of maintaining the park, building projects, repairing, painting buildings, etc. Furthermore, most of the work will take place outside, and it can be a bit cold with a chance of wind and rain, so dress accordingly.

The program itself will be a combination of work, breaks, and leisure time, in that sense that we have many work tasks to complete before the deadline, but there is also lots of time to get to know each other through activities, which is an essential part of Danish Folk High School tradition. The daily working hours are from 8.00 – 15.00, and you will have Saturday and Sunday free.

Throughout the Work Camp, there will be Camp leaders, who will know the big picture and make sure that everything goes as planned with the different projects. They can also help you plan activities and sightseeing tours in the evenings and at weekends.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Askov Højskole is a Danish Folk High School, based on a special pedagogical idea about equality, cooperation, and dialogue by the Danish writer and philosopher, Nikolai Grundtvig. He envisioned Folk High Schools to be a place where young people could meet across social borders, create friendships, and learn to become active and democratic members of society.

This summer, the school wants to share its place with young people from all over the world, who are curious and interested to learn more about the Danish Folk High School tradition as well as helping with manual work for the outdoor facilities.

In the last couple of years, we have not had sufficient capacity to maintain our facilities outside. Therefore, we need your much-appreciated help with upgrading our current facilities to improve the school environment for the students, in a fun and more creative way. This would make a major difference to their daily life and learning experience while staying here.

One of the school's employees, who oversees the buildings and the outdoor facilities, will guide you to learn how to do the work and what to do. Therefore, you do not need previous experience with manual work. You just need a lot of passion for learning and contributing to a social and cooperative atmosphere where everyone feels included and valued for their ideas and efforts, which they put into the work.

Besides working on the different tasks, we are also meant to have an amusing time together where we get to know each other, have fun with social activities, and create a very strong feeling of community, which Danish Folk High Schools are so famous for.
