Arbeit

During the work camp you are invited to join our campaigns and activities for peace. There is a lot to do: design artistically posters for the actions, set up and take down information stands, accompany political performances. You can also contribute with your own ideas and actions. Participation in blockades is not compulsory, but everyone should take part in the communal tasks. We believe that campaigns for nuclear disarmament and non-violent conflict resolution are messages worth spreading through the media. We invite you to learn from best practices in peace work and help us spread these examples as peace messages on social media. Your help for translation into different languages is welcome. Participants will learn interesting things about the history of the globally networked peace movement and its efforts for disarmament and reconciliation. We will exchange experiences about different forms of action for peace. As there will be contact with German native speakers, the work camp is a good opportunity to improve your German language skills. You are welcome to stay longer at the peace camp in Büchel and participate in the programme of the international week.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Accommodation will be in tents. We will cook together, our meals will be vegetarian. You will need clothing for all weathers, basic camping equipment with tent, sleeping bag, sleeping mat, sunscreen.

Lage und Freizeit

Büchel is located in the beautiful Eifel region. There is also the opportunity to visit the picturesque town of Cochem on the Moselle.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

We fight with non-violent actions to ban nuclear weapons. With this work camp, the Peace Workshop Mutlangen e.V. supports the resistance against the last nuclear bombs in Germany. As part of the national campaign "Nuclear Weapons Free", which is supported by almost 80 peace organisations, we participate every year in the non-violent protest at the airbase Büchel in the Eifel. We invite all volunteers to join us to learn more about the peace movement and to support our activities against nuclear armament. During the work camp we will take part in the church action day, the ICAN-IPPNW week and the international week. You will learn a lot about history of nuclear disarmament, confidence building measures and non-violent concepts in activism. In addition to workshops, there will be a bicycle demonstration, storytelling cafés, concerts and hikes, as well as plenty of time for getting to know each other and personal exchange: You can expect an exciting time of working together, learning and having fun in the great outdoors. You can meet active and committed people of all ages and experience a unique atmosphere of community and peace. The campaign: 20 nuclear bombs are still stored in the military camp at Büchel. They belong to the USA and are stationed in Germany as part of NATO's nuclear sharing programme. In case of emergency, the bombs are flown and used by German pilots on the orders of the US president. Instead of banning the storage and withdrawing the bombs, as required by international law since this year, Germany is modernising these weapons of mass destruction with billions of Euros. The campaign draws attention to the issue with the action presence "20 weeks - 20 bombs". The campaign is part of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), which received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2017 for its commitment against nuclear weapons.

Arbeit

On the first day, volunteers will get some orientation about the project, the institute and the surroundings. Together with members of the art club, you will help to redesign and embellish the outdoor area. One of the main tasks will be to reconstruct the lakeshore fortification and the paths, do some plaster and painting work at the buildings and do some garden work. There are also some sculptures in the forest nearby, which will be cleared from grass and moss. There is a great variety of tasks where volunteers can support the project, in general, it means physical work with tools you need for construction works, renovation and wood work. During the time of your stay, there are other guests and groups on the premises and you might get in contact with them. At a certain time of your stay it is planned to work on the tasks together with some of the club members and then have a little Get-together at night along with guests of the institute. Volunteers of the workcamp are invited to give a contribution to this event as well.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Volunteers will prepare and eat their meals in the outdoor summer kitchen (just protected by a shelter and open to the nature at the side) of Kunstort Lehnin. Due to the restrictions against the Corona pandemic, access to this kitchen will be only allowed for the current kitchen team. To comply with the distance rules, all participants will sleep individually in tents. If you can bring your own tent (that would be great!), otherwise local host will offer one for you. Tents can be build up at the shore of the lake or inside a building. Shower and toilets are available for personal hygiene. Please note: In Summer, it can be quite hot, so you will need sun protection. But German summer can be cool as well, especially if it is raining. So please do not forget to bring warm clothes as well.

Lage und Freizeit

Volunteers will learn about the cultural concept and work of Kunstort Lehnin and the integration of Lehnin inhabitants with various cultural and social backgrounds. You can find a piano to play, or you can bring your own instrument and find someone to join you making music. Interested volunteers can take part in an Cyanotype-Workshop (a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print). Volunteers will get free entrance at the lake swimming pool next door, and can visit the cities of Potsdam and Werder. Another highlight will be a turn on our Canaletto boat on the lake connected to the Klostersee where you can enjoy its rich flora and fauna. As there will be contact to German native speakers, the workcamp is a good possibility to improve your German language skills. The volunteers can use the Kunstort’s rowboats. It will be offered a guided tour through the premises of the monastery. Kloster Lehnin is a small town consisting of some small villages situated around the main village Lehnin. It is 65 kilometers Southwest of Berlin. Brandenburg an der Havel and Potsdam are the closest cities. On the opposite shore of the lake Klostersee, there is the oldest Cistercian monastery of Brandenburg, founded in the 12th century. Today it hosts a guesthouse, a clinic, a retirement home and a museum. The village Lehnin was always connected with the former monastery and it is situated in a beautiful landscape with many lakes and woodland. In the European Middle Ages, the monastery was an important religious, cultural and commercial center and there are still many ancient buildings of earlier times. The church is an impressive building and it offers many concerts during summer.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The Kunstort Lehnin (Art place Lehnin) is situated between a forest and a lake near the little village Lehnin. It is a beautiful place offering inspiration and workshops for visual art and culture. Under its roof, there is an art gallery, a summer academy, a seminar location for visual arts, music and theatre, but also yoga seminars and professional trainings. See: https://kunstortlehnin.de. The institute is located at the border of a lake (Klostersee) in a park-like garden with a small landing stage and an integrated art sculpture park. Even a café with a lake terrace is part of the ensemble. The Kunstort was founded in 1991 and there are still enough place and projects to be developed. Therefore, we especially invite volunteers with interest in contemporary art to support this project.

Arbeit

We welcome volunteers to help with the renovation and maintenance of the indoor and outdoor facilities. There is an existing urban gardening project that needs gardening support. We would like to rework various insect shelters in collaboration with regional beekeepers, as well as renovate and expand our small nature trail. Maintenance inside includes painting walls and minor repairs. Outside, the façade is to be prepared for future design by children. We strive to support all tasks with professionals. We are happy to introduce the volunteers to the concept of the "Freizeitzentrum Upsala" and the work connected with it as well as some legal bases of child and youth work.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Its current use as children’s and youth leisure facility began in the 1990s. Please bring your own sleeping bag and insulating mat! Within 5-10 minutes of walking distance, you can reach all the important public transportation methods (tram, subway, bus).

Lage und Freizeit

Berlin is the capital of the Federal Republic of Germany and one of its states. With around 3.6 million inhabitants, the city of Berlin is the most populous and, with 892 square kilometres, the largest municipality in Germany. It forms the centre of the Berlin/Brandenburg metropolitan region (about 6 million inhabitants). The city-state consists of twelve districts. In addition to the rivers Spree and Havel, there are smaller watercourses as well as numerous lakes and forests in the city area. Berlin is a fascinating centre for politics, culture, science and business in the broadest sense. Berlin is a well-known and attractive city. It offers many opportunities for interesting and diverse leisure activities. Therefore, we will prepare some possibilities (with regional scope) and furthermore we will familiarise ourselves with your ideas and wishes. This workcamp offers a good basis to use or even improve already existing knowledge of the German language.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The "Freizeitzentrum Upsala" is a big cultural and social centre for children aged 0-13 years and their families. It is an open institution, which addresses children, their families and their environment as well as senior citizens. “Upsala” is located in the south of the Berlin-Pankow district, where you can find many other social institutions in the neighbourhood including kindergartens, primary schools, a secondary school and a high school.

Arbeit

During the 14 days of the workcamp the volunteers will participate, organize and implement several activities around the topic of Peace. The workcamp will be part of a campaign called “Frankfurt macht Frieden” – translated as Frankfurt creates peace: https://www.facebook.com/FFmachtFrieden/ In order to commemorate the anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, two larger events are planned that will be supported by the workcamp volunteers. Together with our local team, the volunteers will help with all the preparation for the two events and organize their own side activities and small workshop in different institutions, like Kindergarten, day care center, etc. One of the main events will be probably on 6th of August; a German-Polish Peace Festival for families where we will celebrate together with the inhabitants, bring together people with different backgrounds and organize activities for them. The other one will probably be on 9th of August, where we will try to build the longest chain of paper cranes along the border. The side events will be developed and implemented in co-ordination with all the volunteers. Besides that, the volunteers will supervise the information center and contact point for the events, and promote the activities. Please note: The activities might be adapted based on the situation in summer 2021.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

The workcamp will take place in the center of the city. Therefore, the accommodation will be located close to the center as well. The accommodation will be in a flat with several rooms. You will be asked to bring your own sleeping bag and isolation sheet. The volunteers will prepare their meals together. Please note: The accommodation might be adapted based on the situation in summer 2021 and the then required hygienic concepts.

Lage und Freizeit

The volunteers will have a chance to get to know different concepts for peace and the reason we commemorate the end of the Second World War. We will arrange a guided visit to the former concentration camp Sachsenhausen (nearby Berlin), as well as visit to different places in Berlin that are connected to the topic. Volunteers will be able to get to know Frankfurt (Oder) and Słubice (Poland) and the life at the border. Together we can explore the local sights and historical places. The city has a famous lake called “Helenesee”, which you can visit during the leisure time. Frankfurt (Oder) is located east of Brandenburg and is a town of around 58000 inhabitants. It is located on the west side of the Oder River, around 80km east of Berlin. Before the end of the Second World War, the city of Słubice in Poland has been a part of Frankfurt (Oder). At the end of the war the Oder River, which was passing through the city, became the border. Nowadays the cities have decided to work closely together as a European Twin Town that make decisions together and cooperate in all areas of life.

Arbeit

Like in the workcamps of the previous years, volunteers are welcome to support the renovation in the surroundings of the local youth center. You can select from the various tasks below: to set up benches, to renew a volleyball field, to repair different enclosures, etc. Volunteers will learn about different types of youth culture in Germany. As there will be contact with German native speakers, the workcamp is a good possibility to improve your German language skills.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

The volunteers will stay at the local youth center called „House VI“. The group can cook for itself in a modern kitchen.

Lage und Freizeit

The leisure time program will be organized together with the local Eilenburg youth groups and clubs. The focus here lies on the encounter and the interaction with local adolescents. In addition, there are sports activities such as soccer, volleyball, swimming and bowling. There will be a cultural program and a trip to Leipzig and Berlin is scheduled. You can get to know the rich history of Eilenburg through guided tours in the museum and in the cellars, located on the hill in the city center. Eilenburg is a small town with approx. 17.000 inhabitants, situated on the border of the „Duebener Heide“ and approximately 25km from Leipzig. Its rich history of over thousand years makes it easy to call it one of the cradles of Saxony. The rule of the Wettins-Dynasty beginning with the Earl of Ilburg in the 11th century continued until 1918. Part of their territory is the state of Saxony today. In medieval times and during industrialization Eilenburg was a rich city. At the time of Martin Luther, its main business was brewery and in the 19th century, it was a national center of textile industries. However, Eilenburg was devastated several times in its history. In April 1945, Eilenburg was almost completely destroyed. The only evidence of former rich times that remained is the „Sorbenturm“ as a remaining part of the Ilburg. It is estimated that it was built in the 12th century at the highest part of the 220m x 150m plateau. A loop footpath outside the castle wall connects the „Sorbenturm“ with the „Amtshaus” (deanery), the former county court. This path was renovated with the help of the volunteers in the last workcamps.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The municipality of Eilenburg is offering successful workcamps for more than 12 years now. The workcamp host is always the youth club House 6 CLOUD (former name was “Falle” - “Trap”) which is located in former barracks. In the same building, you can find some more social, sportive and cultural projects. For former information, please visit https://www.haus6.org/

Volunteers are invited to support the further development of this centre. "Sustainable building and cooking" are the main two work areas of the workcamp. Participants will rotate from one area to the other according to the schedule, which will be organized during the first days of the workcamp. Sustainable building: In order to fight the combined threats of gentrification and densification that Berlin is currently facing, participants will build a mobile “KulturWerkHalle” under the technical guidance of "tiny collective". It will serve as a workspace, production and exhibition space for art, craft and cultural works. It will be constructed as a trailer, so it can be used everywhere where needed in the neighbourhood. Please also visit www.tinycollective.org for more information. Sustainable cooking: The participants will cook for the group in small teams. They will practise menu design using rescued, regional and seasonal food, in line with the sustainable principles of the KulturMarktHalle under the motto "Good and healthy together".

Depending on how the pandemic develops until the workcamp´s start, participants should plan that only excursions together with the group may be possible. Some of the activities offered could be a visit to the Jewish cemetery, a visit to the island of Weißensee (Tinyhouse-Village), swimming in the natural Orankesee... The KulturMarktHalle will participate again this year in the Carnival of Cultures, which has been postponed to August due to the Corona pandemic and will take place at different locations in Berlin on the weekend of 14-15 August. This will also be a cultural highlight for the participants of the workcamp.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The “KulturMarktHalle” (KMH) was founded in 2016 as a voluntary initiative by people from various professional and cultural backgrounds. Since then, it has been a meeting point for people working in arts and culture to develop local initiatives. Since 2018, it is located in a vacant building, formerly a department store. The area is part of the Prenzlauer Berg district, a vibrant and multicultural neighborhood. The vision of this project is bringing people from different social and cultural backgrounds together. Various exhibitions, seminars, concerts, cultural and educational events are scheduled. A workshop area (to work with materials like wood) will be completed soon, in order to offer more space for the creativity of its visitors. For more information, please visit: https://www.kulturmarkthalle-berlin.de/ This workcamp is part of INVOLVE and it is a joint effort of 3 voluntary service organisations in Italy (Legambiente), France (Solidarités Jeunesses) and Germany (ICJA) to promote and foster the inclusion of migrants in 7 local communities.

We can have discussions and lectures about German history, society, culture and politics (the German East-West border was only 9 km away from Bedheim). There will be the possibility to encounter with young people of the region and getting to know more about the countries of the participants. Bedheim castle is located in the west of Thuringia, close to the Bavarian border. Next bigger town is Coburg (28km away). Bedheim is surrounded by the extraordinary beautiful Franconian landscape.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Bedheim castle was first mentioned in the year 1169 and was devastated and reconstructed several times in its long history. In the time of German Democratic Republic (GDR) it slowly rotted. Now renovation is in charge of the family of Ruehle von Lilienstern. A non-profit association is supporting the renovation work and using part of the castle for its own activities. Since 1992, this association has been organizing workcamps. Year by year new working fields have been developed: a social therapeutic nursery was added, the association is running an organic garden and since 2007 the castle also runs a garden café and a small castle museum where you can admire the bones of prehistoric dinosaurs, once living in this region. During the last 20 years, the castle became a sociocultural center for this remote region: in the castle, there is a perfect room for celebrations; around the castle, one can find various types of gardens and meadow for goose and goats. In addition, there are training courses and cultural activities available. The aim of this project is to create an atmosphere where people with or without disabilities may come, live and work together without any prejudice against handicap, nationality or religion. Inhabitants of the castle are looking forward to meet us, to work with us and hear our suggestions and ideas and to create a peaceful world together!
