The workcamp leaders will work as a team under the supervision of the Project Manager of the organization. They will be involved in preparing, organizing, running, and evaluating Nature-oriented, Educational, and Environmental Protection Projects in Iceland. Those projects are organized with international volunteers. In each group, there are two or three leaders from the organization. At the end of each camp the project coordinator will be expected to produce an evaluation of the projects and their results.
At the beginning of their stay, here, they will receive qualified training from the organization’s staff members. This training will capacitate them to perform the Projects´ activities, which vary between Cleaning Beaches, Planting trees, and Environmental-related tasks to taking care of environmental awareness campaigns and Renovation work. At the same time, leaders will receive guidance in how to plan, organize and lead the projects, including topics as group management, conflict resolution, bookkeeping, development, leadership roles, intercultural cooperation, motivation, etc. They will also receive practical information about planning a project, spare time activities, etc.
In this project, the leaders will organize and run programs for both short-term/long-term volunteers which will do 5-7 hours of environmental work during weekdays. The main work is cleaning the coastline in the area and to recycle the plastic that we find on the coast while cleaning.
We will also open a workshop where we will recycle the plastic that we find at the coastline. The group will also do some renovation in the property of Worldwide Friends and in the garden.
As a leader you will have to plan/organize a daily Workshop (from Monday to Thursday) giving a special focus on Global Warming, it can also be about other Environmental issues. The issue of global warming is well-known all over the world. Humanity must act in a more environmentally friendly way. The main goal of this project is to improve the environmental education and consciousness of the projects’ participants.
Within the project, we will learn about green energy, sustainable householding, waste treatment, nutrition, the effects of consumption, and lots more. If you want to change something, develop solutions, or inspire others, you have to understand the issues and tasks first. Take part in this promising project and spring into action against climate change!
