Arbeit

This is a new project initiated by Hong Kong volunteers, who is inspired by the Switzerland barrier free workcamp. While Hong Kong has one of the most developed transportation system in the world, its barrier-free facility across the city still has room for improvement. This project thus aims to promote the concept of an inclusive community that accommodates the needs of people with disabilities. Part of the project also allows workcampers to experience the daily difficulties faced by physically challenged individuals. This serves as a learning opportunity for workcampers to truly understand that our physical differences do not limit our potential or ability to involve in activities. 1. Collect data about barrier-free facilities in local community 2. Prepare for and participate in social inclusion activities 3. Assistance to campsite activities 4. Carry out community research on people with disabilities in Hong Kong 5. Participate in community activities

Arbeit

The project is co-organized by VolTra and The Conservancy Association (CA). CA, founded in 1968, is the non-government environmental organization with the longest history in Hong Kong. This nature conservation management project has been in place since 2005, with the aim to conserve Hong Kong historical site of paddy rice produce – Long Valley. The site composes of 400+ linking farmlands as well as accommodates 200+ bird species, including a range of international conserved species. Through participating in harvesting and ecological monitoring work, we hope to alleviate Long Valley’s landscape and biodiversity situation. Other than a series of active habitat and species management measures, volunteers will also organize the Long Valley Harvest Festival as well as have the precious chance to interact with Hong Kong indigenous villagers, who are descendants of local residents during 1890s. It will be a unique gateway to learn more about the indigenous culture in the concrete jungle. 1. Set up, decorate and operate the booths for traditional kiln, straw art, food making in the Long Valley Harvest Fest 2. Prepare, build and transport the facilities and materials for the Long Valley Harvest Fest 3. Eco-crop packaging work 4. Interact with local Hong Kong indigenous residents 5. Clear and repair trails which have been invaded by vegetation
