This project has been set up by FSL-India in collaboration with local NGOs with a primary aim to educate lower economic and social groups, the local community, youth and children about environmental issues and good practices.

In this project a volunteer main task would be to develop and support through creative education about nature and ecology conservation.

By doing so, you will educate the local community on the economic and social benefits of environmental protection and conservation of nature and natural resources. You will have to visit schools, colleges, and youth groups and organise environmental educational workshops and disseminate information to various stakeholders on environment protection.

Eco-Clubs is a governmental initiative that was introduced 5 years ago in all Government schools. As part of this initiative, Eco-Clubs were formed in schools and the members comprised of school children. The aim of the Eco-Club was to introduce environmental concerns and good practices to the school children to make them actively involved and to be aware of the necessity to protect nature. However, most government schools lack personnel and financial means to run the Eco-clubs effectively and efficiently. As a result, Eco-clubs have been formed in most schools but ceased to function.

As a volunteer your task will be to design and run the Eco-club sessions in the schools with the help of other volunteers, a field assistant and teachers. Being creative, innovative and loving towards children is important to work in this project. You will also get the chance to work with the local community in order to organize some outdoor events for the children.

There is an ample opportunity to work with the local community where our volunteers try and create model streets. The local community is introduced to Solid waste management, building of compost pits and the separation of bio-degradable material. There is a lot of scope for interested volunteers who have prior experience to bring in their ideas and implement them in the project.

The Info-sheet will have more information regarding the individual projects with schedules, and activities.

Note: Minimum application for Environmental Education is for two months

The Participation Fee is 14,500 Indian Rupees for each month (approximately 200 Euros per month, depending on the exchange rate)

Health and sanitation is the priority areas in development, both in rural and urban areas. Especially, in rural areas open defecation is quite common and sanitation is very poor. Lack of Proper education and an understanding about the need for hygiene and sanitation and a general lack of awareness are the main culprits.

FSL-India is making its share of contribution to address this problem by implementing Water and Sanitation based programs through multiple interventions that includes 'Dream Village Project', Environment Education Project and also through volunteer service in various locations.

These projects along with other objectives, support construction of toilets in the villages and generate widespread awareness on various potential diseases due to want of proper hygiene and sanitation.

A sustainable future for the planet can only be achieved if both animals and people are part of the solution. However, it is not at all uncommon to see animals - domestic, stray or wild often exploited and taken for granted. It is a forgotten fact that even they need food and water. Conservation and management of animals have a significant bearing on the survival of every species by helping in promotion of rational use of environment to provide a high quality of living for mankind. Animal care and conservation envisages not only the protection of the existing populations of animals and their habitats, but also the breeding and farming of rare animals.

As a volunteer you will be assigned to work with organisations involved in the field of impacting political and economic climate, habitat protection, breeding and farming, special wildlife projects, legislative measures, nurse ailing and injured animals. The major activities that you may be assigned are: Providing care and treatment, conducting surveys, documentation, policy advocacy, designing appropriate IEC (Information, Education and Communication) materials, community awareness and education.

DATA FINE: 31 / 12 / 2016

The challenge of food security, especially in the face of rising food prices, places a serious responsibility before the country. Despite immense advances in the agriculture sector, many people still sleep hungry or live under the threat of food shortage. The degradation of natural resources is also a major concern as it severely impacts the livelihoods of poor and backward communities in rural areas. In this backdrop, sustainable agriculture is one of the most effective ways to respond to the challenges of the rural community. In essence, Sustainable Agriculture refers to a set of practices adopted for cultivation that are least harmful to the environment while also ensuring a good crop. It involves crop production methods that support sustainable natural resource management to increase crop productivity, maintain biodiversity, and also are economically viable and socially acceptable.

Organic farming is generally sustainable; however, organic produce can also be cultivated on large scale industrial farms that are not sustainable. Soil and water management, organic farming, integrated pest management, and integrated nutrient management are common practices promoted under sustainable agriculture. Sustainable agricultural development, as well as employing organic farming methods, seeks food and nutritional security, improved livelihoods for our people, safe ecosystems, and sustainable economies of agriculture.

As a volunteer in this field of work you will -

Work with the farming community and the associated organisations that assist in sustainable agriculture and/or organic farming.

Conduct community awareness on the importance of sustainable agriculture.

Facilitate training and capacity building on crop productivity, how to maintain biodiversity, water management, organic farming, integrated pest management, and integrated nutrient management, surveys, documentations etc.

Indian society is characterized by discrimination, deprivation, exploitation, subjugation and marginalization, particularly on the basis of caste and ethnicity. The Scheduled Tribes (STs) in India suffer from exclusion, neglect and under-development due to their geographical and cultural isolation and separation from the mainstream. The greatest challenge that India has been facing since independence is the proper provision of social justice to the scheduled tribe people, by ameliorating their socio-economic conditions. Scheduled Tribes, Scheduled Castes and de-notified tribes constitute the weakest section of India's population, from the ecological, economic and educational angles. They constitute the matrix of India's poverty.

Healthcare and the lack of easy access to it prevent people from upward social and economic mobility in India. Healthcare facilities in India are difficult to access. Government hospitals, though technically free, are so overwhelmed by the incongruity between the massive population of patients and the deficiency of qualified medical staff that they cannot cope with the load. Rates of children suffering from under-nutrition in India remain high despite the economic growth. In India 20 per cent of children less than 5 years of age suffer from wasting due to acute under nutrition. More than one third of the world’s children who are wasted live in India (UNICEF).

Under-nutrition is substantially higher in rural than in urban areas and is responsible for 35% of deaths among children under 5 and 11% of the total global disease burden. Under nutrition often an invisible problem jeopardizes children’s survival, health, growth and development, and it slows national progress towards development goals.

According to the World Health Organization, a majority of the top 10 causes of death in India are both treatable and preventable. Therefore, to supplement the effort of the Government, many organisations are working in India to provide health care to people and improve the nutritional status of the children.

As a volunteer you will be working with healthcare centres or community based organisations and tasks will include :

Catering to the healthcare and nutritional needs of the rural community.

Organising health camps; providing health and nutritional education to children, youth/adolescent and community.

Conducting community awareness; facilitate training and capacity building for the health workers, community mobilisers on preventive, curative and rehabilitative health intervention.

Conduct surveys; documentations; designing appropriate IEC (Information, Education and Communication) materials on health and nutritional aspect.

Background:  This is a mountain area where more than 70% population lives in rural areas and agriculture is the main stay of their survival.  Off late, due to deforestation and land degradation, population pressure, unrestricted grazing by animals and indifferent attitude of people towards their environmental sanitation, the people feel the pinch of global warming and climate change.   Some recognize the changes and consequences but the majority fail to understand and correlate it to their life style.  Since they still stick to the traditions and follow the age old farming practices their income levels are going down.  

Changes in climatic conditions affect their farming and living conditions adversely.  The green cover in mountains maintains the environmental balance and controls the climate in the whole country.  The resources are sufficient but the people, due to lack of education and awareness, fail to conserve and preserve these resources.  

This project is designed to work on these issues and volunteers are required to work with RUCHI team and local people to address some of them.

Work: Volunteers will be involved in environmental education in the same area and work with youth workers and community leaders to initiate  actions aiming at environmental sanitation, improve climatic changes and restrict global warming.  Basically that will include education and awareness creation using various tools but any physical action leading to check Global warming, climate change, depletion of natural resources will be highly appreciated.

Project Needs:

Growing population and increasing demand for food has led to industrial farming practices, which are detrimental to both the environment and to our health.  Sustainable farming is the way forward as it takes into consideration of our health, the environment, local communities and animal welfare.  It produces food in a way that allows for ecological balance and maintenance of biodiversity. 


Plants, animals and humans are all part of nature and we rely on each other to survive.  Climate change, loss of biodiversity, soil degradation, depletion of resources and extinction of species are devastating results of our exploitation of nature.  Rethinking our role in nature and our footprint on this planet is key to the survival of future generations.   


Project Aims:

Provide a unique experiential learning opportunity to enrich knowledge of sustainable farming and animal care 

Increase awareness of the negative impact of industrial farming on our health and on the environment 

Encourage volunteers to engage with nature, physically, mentally and spiritually

Cultivate a sustainable and harmonious co-existence with plants, animals and all others members of our ‘earth community’ 

Spread the principles of environmental sustainability and raise active citizenship committed with a fairer society

Inspire future changemakers who are impactful towards sustainable farming and animal care issues (Changemakers are individuals who gain skills and resources they need to collaborate on solving complex social problems)

DATA FINE: 14 / 7 / 2016

DESCRIPTION: PARTNER DESCRIPTION: Volunteer Forest Firefighter Society was established in 2008 by the group of active people who were alarmed by the situation with fires at the Ladoga-Lake region. Local governmental services of natural area protection was not able to handle fire extinguishing at the numerous islands scattered on the lake surface. The project is aiming for prevention and extinguishing the fire, education of local community, pointing out the problem. Also recognition the value of this area and National Park status assignment for it, as long-term goal. The islands of the lake have unique vegetation. It is home for many rare species of animals, birds and plants; fragile ecosystem which takes several hundred years to recover from the fire. That’s why we consider that this place needs to be protected and saved for next generations. The people of our organization are engineers, biologists, teachers, architects, students etc. Now it has become a pretty big community that unites very different people with diverse backgrounds and quite wide geography. All participants are volunteers ready to spend their vacation or weekend for the purpose of environmental protection. Since 2008 we had increased our skills and capacities on field of prevention and fighting the fire. We educate and prepare our volunteers through different trainings and practical seminars right at the campsite. We’ve gained a lot of experience on how to make our project more sustainable and effective and will be glad to share it with new motivated volunteers. WORK DESCRIPTION: Normally there are 10-15 Russian volunteers in the camp but their number changes all the time. There are no any fixed groups: people come for as long as they can according to the needs of the camp. The leader of the camp is the person who is in charge for functioning the camp. It is not permanent position, and usually every two weeks he or she passes the duties to next leader. There is large variety of tasks: − Detecting and putting out fires; − Monitoring the land from motor boats. − Monitoring the land through binoculars from various islands. − Running the camp (housekeeping tasks, help with meal preparation) − Also we organise Islands Cleaning Events: group of our volunteers (rubbish tream) goes by boat to some popular island often visited by tourists and clean it up from rubbish, install info boards. Working hours: 3-8 hours/day, however it can vary depending on weather, current tasks and number of people. When it’s dry and hot we focus on patrolling and observation of the area. Each volunteer should be ready to move if the alarm appears. It is important to keep in mind that the main goal of this camp is to detect and extinguish forest fires - it is priority task and rest of work, day routines and discipline are built around it. ACCOMODATION AND FOOD: Since there are already 8 years the project exists, we’ve manage to organize our life in the camp in most convenient way. We have electricity from the generator: every tree or two days batteries, accumulators and other items may be charged. There is free wi-fi and even water tab made by our ingenious volunteers. We use organic hand-made wash up liquid or purchase eco-friendly one. We separate our rubbish and transport it to St.Petersburg for recycling. The laundry can be done in the lake or we have several basins and soap. There is sauna-tent with a stove and hot stones. We use wood to heat it up and make washing process comfortable and pleasant. The wood is taken from the nearest island, which was affected by the fire about 10 years ago and has plenty of dead dry trees. There are tents for 2-4 people in the camp. Please, bring your own mat and sleeping bag. If you have your own tent, please bring it with you. If not, we will manage to find the tent for you but be ready for neighbors. Food is cooked on bonfire and on gas stove. Many of our participants are vegetarians and all the dishes made without meat, but if you like you may add can-meat or fish to your plate. We use water from the lake for cooking. This year we’ve published Ladoga Cook Book, which is about how we make our menu more interesting and diverse within the limits of low budget and remoteness from supermarkets. But anyway you should be ready for porridge! There is no way to avoid it☺ And of course if you want bring some specialties from your country you’re warmly welcome! ATTENTION! Alcohol in the camp is strictly forbidden! LOCATION AND LEISURE: Ladoga is one of the biggest fresh water lake in Europe. It is situated in the Republic of Karelia in the north-west of Russia. Closest big city is Saint. Petersburg which locates about 2,5 hours by train South direction. The camp is based on the island Pieni-Hepposaari in 30-40 minutes from the mainland by boat. One of our coordinators will assist the new volunteers with arrival to the camp. Free time activities: The amount of free time strongly depends on weather. There may be three days raining, and that case volunteers have plenty of free time to sleep, read, chat, or play games. We like gather around bonfire for singing with guitar. For newcomers we organise different trainings and practical seminars: - Sailing a boat; - How to work with water pumps and different equipment; - Fire trainings; - Orienteering: how to use GPS, work with maps, define azimuth; - First aid; - Knots; - What to do if you or your fellow dropped overboard? It’s literally practical; - Radio: how to use walkie-talkie, number codes. This year in beginning of July we will be hosting Greenpeace firefighters training camp. It's an educational event annually happening in our camp. It is aimed for those who already involved in firefighting protection or want organise volunteer group in their regions, so the event gathers participants from different parts of Russia. The volunteers may joins Greenpeace sessions if the weather allows it. The nature is very specific Nordic type and it’s incredibly beautiful! Sometimes you may spend hours just watching the waves or observing birds. Also swimming is nice especially if you like cold water☺ In July it’s usually warm enough already for people, not only for seals who are our close neighbors. IMPORTANT: In the hot time there might be a lot of fires which means free time for sleep only. REQUIREMENTS: For those who have no camping experience, life at the island far away from civilization without some regular facilities may be too tough and stressful. Also the weather may be severe and unpredictable what should be taken into consideration. As the activities taken at the firefighter’s camp associates with danger, the insurance is obligatory! To sum everything up, for this project we seek for motivated volunteers with outdoor camping experience, ready for challenging and sometimes very demanding conditions. Also it’s better to have at least basic knowledge of Russian language or be ready to learn it right in the camp. Also we ask the applicants to send the letter of motivation. NOTES: AIRPORT: LED STATION: The nearest terminal is in Saint-Petersburg where we usually have the meeting point. From Saint-Petersburg 2 hours by train to Priozersk, then by bus or by taxi to the boat station where our boat will wait for volunteers in agreed time. 30-40 minutes takes the trip to the camp island by boat.

Plemmirio, un tuffo in un mondo antico

PAESE: ITALIA
CONTRIBUTO: 500
TARGET: Ragazzi
DATA INIZIO: 11 / 7 / 2016
DATA FINE: 20 / 7 / 2016

PROGETTO: durante il campo i volontari acquisiranno conoscenze relative ai sistemi ambientali,  alla biologia marina, al mondo subacqueo e alla storia del territorio. I corsi di immersione subacquea e biologia marina completeranno un percorso di sensibilizzazione verso i problemi ambientali e di ecosostenibilità; irripetibili immersioni presso secche e relitti, escursioni nella città antica e le visite presso siti archeologici immersi nella natura, lontani dal turismo di massa, consentono di apprezzare l’altra protagonista delle nostre attività, l’archeologia. 

CIRCOLO: il Circolo Chico Mendes di Siracusa si è costituito nel 1995 e nel 1998 è diventato Onlus. Dalla sua costituzione ha promosso la partecipazione dei cittadini alla difesa e alla definizione della qualità della vita nel proprio territorio. Ha realizzato numerose iniziative di denuncia di fenomeni d’illegalità contro l’ambiente come l’abusivismo edilizio e l’irregolare gestione del ciclo delle acque e dei rifiuti; grazie a questo attivismo Legambiente Siracusa è diventata un punto di riferimento per i cittadini nelle lotte ambientali e un interlocutore serio per le istituzioni locali.

LUOGO: Siracusa è un’antica città della Magna Grecia fondata nell’VIII sec. a.C. le cui gloriose vestigia testimoniano il suo passato di potente megalopoli. Si possono infatti ammirare fra i tanti monumenti: il teatro greco, il tempio di Apollo, l’ara di Ierone e il castello Eurialo. Il centro storico è situato sull’isoletta di Ortigia in cui strette viuzze e palazzi di stile barocco fanno da scenario a caratteristici locali frequentati da molti giovani e turisti. A sud dell’isola di Ortigia vi è l’Area Marina Protetta del Plemmirio, le cui alte falesie cadono su un mare profondo e attraversato da correnti, che rendono l’acqua limpida e ricca di pesce.

L'Area marina protetta Plemmirio si trova sulla costa orientale di Siracusa ed è stata istituita nel 2004. È classificata come Area Specialmente Protetta di Interesse Mediterraneo. Una delle peculiarità delle regole dell AMP è quella di limitare le attività di pesca e prelievo con delle regolamentazioni specifiche, ma anche quella di promuovere ed effettuare dei programmi di studio, ricerca e ripopolamento abbinati a dei programmi didattici ed educativi che permettano la maggiore conoscenza e sensibilità nei confronti della natura.


 

LAVORO: pulizia di alcuni tratti di costa e di fondale anche all’interno dell’AMP del Plemmirio. Sensibilizzazione dei turisti e dei locali alle tematiche ambientalistiche.

I volontari hanno l’opportunità di avvicinarsi a pratiche di ecologia domestica quali la raccolta differenziata, il risparmio idrico ed energetico, l’alimentazione basata su prodotti locali e di stagione. La vita di gruppo è un aspetto fondamentale, essa favorisce lo scambio culturale e la scoperta del territorio.

ATTIVITA’ FORMATIVE: 

Immersioni guidate per brevettati. 

Corso di Sommozzatore 1° Grado AR e 2° Grado AR, con rilascio di brevetto internazionale. 

Corso di Apnea 1° Grado e 2° grado. 

Seawatching e snorkeling (per chi non interessato alle immersioni con autorespiratore). 

Escursioni in barca. 

Nozioni di arte marinaresca. 

Escursioni presso riserve naturali e nei siti archeologici della città antica. 

Ingressi autorizzati all’interno della Zona A (zona di riserva integrale) dell’AMP del Plemmirio. 

Pulizia di alcuni tratti di fondale. 

Corso di decorazione della ceramica. 

Osservazione delle costellazioni.

ALLOGGIO: Villa di sei vani, a 200 m dal mare, con terrazza, veranda ed ampio giardino alberato. I tre servizi sono forniti di acqua calda, luce e docce. Le tre camere da letto sono da sei persone ciascuna, con letti a castello. La villa è ubicata presso la zona balneare di Ognina a 15 km a sud di Siracusa.

REQUISITI RICHIESTI: Per iscriversi è necessario possedere e inviare la copia del certificato di idoneità sportiva non agonistica.

Brevetto subacqueo per coloro che intendono effettuare le immersioni guidate o prendere il brevetto di 2° grado.

Caretta Caretta sull'isola dei conigli

PAESE: ITALIA
CONTRIBUTO: 250
TARGET: Adulti
DATA INIZIO: 12 / 7 / 2016
DATA FINE: 21 / 7 / 2016

PROGETTO: I campi di volontariato si svolgono nella spiaggia dell’Isola dei Conigli, zona A di Riserva Naturale, in quanto sito di ovodeposizione della tartaruga marina Caretta caretta, specie protetta perché rara e minacciata di estinzione.

I campi hanno una duplice finalità:

- contribuire alla tutela della spiaggia, intensamente frequentata a fini balneari, in modo da garantire il mantenimento delle condizioni ambientali idonee all’ovodeposizione di Caretta caretta, controllando e limitando l’impatto antropico sul sito;

- sorvegliare e proteggere i nidi di Caretta caretta, dalla deposizione alla schiusa.

Questi campi sono una grande occasione per quanti, appassionati della natura, vogliono prendersene cura svolgendo attività utili e insieme entusiasmanti, in uno dei luoghi più belli di Lampedusa e del Mediterraneo, meritevole di essere salvaguardato per la sua bellezza e per la sua grande importanza naturalistica. Sono diverse centinaia i volontari che ogni anno hanno contribuito in modo attivo e determinante alla tutela della spiaggia dei Conigli che, fino alla data dell’istituzione della Riserva, versava in grave stato di degrado. I visibili risultati positivi raggiunti nel corso del tempo, sono stati possibili anche grazie all’insostituibile ruolo del volontariato ambientale.


CIRCOLO: Il Circolo Legambiente Esther Ada nasce a Lampedusa nel 2011 ed è principalmente coinvolto nell’organizzazione delle campagne nazionali di Legambiente e nella realizzazione di progetti relativi a problematiche di carattere ambientale e sociale. In collaborazione con la Riserva Naturale “Isola di Lampedusa” propone attività di educazione ambientale agli studenti delle scuole dell’isola e si occupa dell’organizzazione dei campi di volontariato per la tutela della Spiaggia dei Conigli, sito di deposizione della tartaruga marina Caretta caretta.

LUOGO: Molto più vicina all’Africa che alla Sicilia, Lampedusa appartiene all’Arcipelago delle Pelagie. Nel 1996 la Regione Siciliana ha istituito la Riserva Naturale Orientata “Isola di Lampedusa”, affidata in gestione a Legambiente Sicilia. L’area protetta si estende per circa 360 ettari lungo un’ampia fascia incontaminata della costa meridionale dell’isola ed è finalizzata alla conservazione delle espressioni più significative della fauna e della flora presenti sul territorio, comprendenti numerosi endemismi e specie note solo per Lampedusa. La spiaggia dei Conigli, uno dei luoghi più significativi e visitati della riserva, è stata per anni oggetto di ogni forma di abuso e degrado, ma grazie ai numerosi interventi di recupero ambientale, controllo e sensibilizzazione effettuati dall’Ente Gestore fin dall’istituzione della riserva, oggi rappresenta un modello di gestione e di promozione di un turismo sostenibile, che ha saputo coniugare la conservazione della natura con la fruizione del territorio.  

LAVORO: Il campo prevede lo svolgimento di turni giornalieri di 6 ore e turni notturni di 8–10 ore.

I turni giornalieri sono finalizzati al controllo della balneazione, mediante sorveglianza ed attività di informazione e sensibilizzazione dei bagnanti, in modo da far rispettare i regolamenti vigenti nella riserva. Dalle 8 alle 20.00 i volontari si alterneranno per coprire due postazioni fisse: una all’ingresso della Riserva e una sulla spiaggia. All’ingresso, i volontari forniranno informazioni e materiali divulgativi ai visitatori e faranno in modo che attrezzi ed oggetti dei quali è vietato l’ingresso o l’uso nella Riserva, vengano depositati prima di accedere in Riserva.

In spiaggia, i volontari sorveglieranno i nidi deposti, saranno punto di riferimento per quanti vogliono conoscere la biologia riproduttiva di Caretta caretta e svolgeranno attività di sensibilizzazione per orientare la fruizione della spiaggia verso forme compatibili con l’importanza del sito (distribuiranno posacenere per evitare l'abbandono di mozziconi sulla spiaggia, inviteranno al rispetto delle norme comportamentali da osservare, contribuiranno alla tutela dello specchio acqueo antistante la spiaggia mediante una canoa, ecc.).

I volontari, inoltre, collaboreranno nelle attività di rilevamento dei dati sulla fruizione e saranno di sostegno agli operatori addetti al monitoraggio per il rilevamento dei dati sui nidi di tartaruga e sui piccoli. I turni notturni si svolgeranno presso la struttura ubicata all’ingresso della riserva e sono finalizzati ad impedire l’accesso in spiaggia di eventuali visitatori durante la notte, che potrebbero pregiudicare gli eventi di nidificazione della tartaruga.

ATTIVITA’ FORMATIVE: All’inizio di ogni campo i volontari parteciperanno ad un incontro formativo presso la sede della Riserva (tenuto dal personale della Riserva), durante il quale verranno fornite le principali informazioni sull’area protetta (storia, caratteristiche, regolamento, ecc.)  e sulla biologia della tartaruga marina.

ALLOGGIO: I volontari saranno ospitati in una casa poco distante dal centro del paese, con cucina attrezzata, due bagni e camere dotate di letti a castello.  

REQUISITI RICHIESTI: Buona attitudine a camminare; capacità di svolgere le attività anche in presenza di particolari condizioni climatiche (essere in grado di trascorrere diverse ore sotto il sole, ma anche in presenza di vento, umidità, pioggia, zanzare…). Non costituisce un requisito obbligatorio, ma per chi ne ha le capacità, è richiesto l’utilizzo di una canoa e saper montare una tenda da campo. Il campo non è adatto a persone con disabilità (fisiche o psichiche)

TARGET: Adulti
DATA INIZIO: 18 / 7 / 2016
DATA FINE: 30 / 7 / 2016

PROGETTO:  Il campo vedrà i volontari impegnati in diversi progetti che nell'insieme mirano a preservare, e in qualche caso a ripristinare, l'ambiente naturale di una delle zone umide più importanti del Tirreno. La tenuta di San Rossore, inserita nel Parco regionale MSRM, dopo essere stata destinata a tenuta di caccia per regnanti e presidenti, è dal 1989 il nucleo centrale di un grande parco costiero. Anche nell'ambiente protetto del parco, tuttavia, sono a volte necessari interventi che facilitano le specie più delicate, che rischiano di soccombere per cause umane, come ad esempio la crescita di altre specie alloctone invasive, la mancanza di microclimi /o di microambienti di cui necessitano. Poichè tutti gli spostamenti del campo si effettuano in bicicletta, è previsto anche un breve corso di manutenzione di base della bicicletta.

CIRCOLO: Il Circolo Legambiente Pisa da ormai 20 anni è protagonista di molte attività in città: dall'educazione ambientale per bambini e adulti, alle battaglie per le aree verdi, passando per la protezione civile, l'informazione su temi di interesse generale (rifiuti, acqua, verde, mobilità ecc.), le campagne, le escursioni nel territorio, e molto altro. Il tutto in costante e proficua relazione con le molte associazioni ed attività che animano Pisa.  

LUOGO: La tenuta di San Rossore, inserita nel Parco regionale MSRM, dopo essere stata destinata a tenuta di caccia per regnanti e presidenti, è dal 1989 i nucleo centrale di un grande parco costiero che costituisce un vero gioiello sia per la fauna (in particolare l'avifauna che vi trova un'oasi di tranquillità -sia essa stanziale o di passo), sia per le specie vegetali, tra cui diversi relitti e specie endemiche, che qui hanno trovato un ambiente in cui sopravvivere e svilupparsi. La tenuta si trova a distanza ciclabile dalle città di Pisa, e Lucca, due centri che non hanno bisogno di descrizione; dal campo è anche facile raggiungere altri centri di interesse, quali Livorno, Calci (con la Certosa ed il museo di Storia Naturale), il Lago di Massaciuccoli, e le Alpi Apuane, che, se fa molto caldo, potranno essere meta per un'escursione del fine settimana centrale.

LAVORO: I volontari utilizzeranno semplici strumenti quali cesoie, accetta e segaccio per eliminare la vegetazione invasiva, registreranno i dati per confrontare la situazione presente e verificare l’efficacia dell’azione. Saranno possibili, su richiesta del Parco, interventi per facili operazioni di manutenzione di aree di interesse naturalistico più interne. Lo studio di impatto prevede l'osservazione di due aree (una sottoposta all'evento e una di controllo), e la registrazione delle specie presenti (identità, quantità e dimensioni)Tutti gli spostamenti avverranno con biciclette, di cui i volontari effettueranno anche la manutenzione, con l'aiuto della locale ciclofficina. 

ATTIVITA’ FORMATIVE: Manutenzione e piccole riparazioni delle biciclette (a cura della ciclofficina); visite guidate nel parco (a cura dei dipendenti del Parco);  visita guidata nella città di Pisa e zone limitrofe (a cura del Circolo)

ALLOGGIO: appartamento in cascina nella Tenuta di San Rossore

REQUISITI RICHIESTI: Saper andare in bicicletta (si percorrono circa 10-20 km al giorno), e voler imparare a effettuarne la manutenzione.

PROGETTO: Legambiente Lecco ha in gestione l’ostello nel Parco Regionale del Monte Barro, una realtà intorno alla quale il circolo sviluppa numerose attività, tra cui Festambiente Monte Barro. Essa si sviluppa su 4 giorni ed occupa i nostri volontari in una attenta e laboriosa preparazione che copre ogni aspetto della festa. Talvolta però un aiuto in più è ben gradito soprattutto quando i visitatori si contano a centinaia se non migliaia.

CIRCOLO: Legambiente Lecco (https://www.facebook.com/legambiente.lecco) è una realtà radicata sul territorio della provincia, collabora con numerose amministrazioni locali in progetti di grande rilevanza. Tra tutte le attività svolte dal circolo sicuramente la gestione dell’Ostello Parco Monte Barro ha il peso maggiore, dando anche lavoro ai giovani del territorio, in un’ottica di economia civile e approccio ecocompatibile al fare impresa. Non sono da dimenticare poi i campi internazionali di volontariato, le collaborazioni con i parchi regionali e tante altri ambiti che rendono il circolo vivo e vissuto da numerosi volontari lecchesi.

LUOGO: Il Parco Regionale del Monte Barro è una piccola area protetta lombarda che si affaccia sul Lago di Como e la città di Lecco. L’Eremo del Monte Barro è una struttura situata a 700 metri di quota ed ha una ricca storia alle sue spalle. Il Monte Barro è abitato sin dai primi anni del medioevo, la struttura dell’Eremo fu prima un monastero francescano, poi un hotel e quindi un sanatorio. Legambiente Lecco ha collaborato nel recupero di quello che un tempo era un edificio considerato ecomostro per farlo diventare un esempio di sostenibilità con l’apertura dell’Ostello Parco Monte Barro.

LAVORO: I volontari dovranno collaborare nella realizzazione di Festambiente Monte Barro, la manifestazione ha bisogno di molte persone per funzionare efficacemente e i soli volontari locali spesso non bastano. I compiti sono numerosi e comprendono sia il prima che il durante Festambiente: allestimento del palco per gli artisti, controllo della fruibilità dei sentieri intorno all’ Eremo, accoglienza dei visitatori, approntamento dei cartelli per segnalare le varie attività, pulizia dei luoghi, vigilanza sulla corretta fruizione delle aree verdi, banchetto informativo, partecipazione ad attività di animazione.. 

ALLOGGIO: I volontari saranno alloggiati nell’Ostello Parco Monte Barro gestito dal circolo Legambiente Lecco. Vi sarà una camerata a loro riservata con cucina e bagni al piano.

REQUISITI RICHIESTI: Entusiasmo, condivisione dei valori di Legambiente, predisposizione al lavoro di gruppo e alla condivisione degli spazi.

The « 7th continent » is the name given to a huge amount of waste which covers an area of 3,5 million km² in the Pacific Ocean. Through our daily consuming practices, especially the use of packaging, we are involved in this worldwide natural disaster. Even if the region of Lozere is one of the most protected and preserved area in France, and is part of a national park, the inhabitants of this region are also concerned by this problem and should think about a sustainable solution to the management of rubbishes and wasted packagings.

This project of youth exchange is integrated into the continuity of the reflection committed within the Passadou association : what do we set up so that every citizen of the world becomes aware of current environmental stakes? It seems within the competence of the association to educate and to raise awarness the youth towards a sustainable development, and to give them the ways to their level, to act in knowledge and in conscienceness.

The topic about the waste management is for Passadou a priority point to tackle, because, besides provoking in the oceans, the death of million birds, fishes and marine mammals every year, the plastic waste affect human populations today. On one hand, waste at sea increases the difficulties for fishing, and on the other hand, the human being at the end of the chain food, ingest fragments of plastics which can have ill effect on the health.

Workshops : The activities break down into three phases :

A phase of discovery, exchanges and reflection about the theme

The second phase of meeting and creation of a communication medium

A last phase focused on the sharing of knowledges and the valuation of the project

For these three weeks, you will meet inhabitants, elected representatives and local actors, with whom you will set up various workshops. As well, visits will take place in a waste reception center and an office of sortings and waste recycling. 

With a professional in communication, you will think about the realization of a communications tool to raise awarness on the waste problem.

The youth exchange will end in a festival organized by the association Passadou and an other local association, where you will present the work realized during these 3 weeks.

Leisure activities : You can take advantage of your leisure time to discover natural resources and local traditions of the Mount Lozère and in sources of the Tarn, swim in river, make some hike, participate in festivities...

Situation : Le Pont de Montvert(48),from 25 km of Florac, 45 km of Mende, 55 km of Alès

Plemmirio, un tuffo in un mondo antico

PAESE: ITALIA
CONTRIBUTO: 500
TARGET: Ragazzi
DATA INIZIO: 21 / 7 / 2016
DATA FINE: 30 / 7 / 2016

PROGETTO: durante il campo i volontari acquisiranno conoscenze relative ai sistemi ambientali,  alla biologia marina, al mondo subacqueo e alla storia del territorio. I corsi di immersione subacquea e biologia marina completeranno un percorso di sensibilizzazione verso i problemi ambientali e di ecosostenibilità; irripetibili immersioni presso secche e relitti, escursioni nella città antica e le visite presso siti archeologici immersi nella natura, lontani dal turismo di massa, consentono di apprezzare l’altra protagonista delle nostre attività, l’archeologia. 

CIRCOLO: il Circolo Chico Mendes di Siracusa si è costituito nel 1995 e nel 1998 è diventato Onlus. Dalla sua costituzione ha promosso la partecipazione dei cittadini alla difesa e alla definizione della qualità della vita nel proprio territorio. Ha realizzato numerose iniziative di denuncia di fenomeni d’illegalità contro l’ambiente come l’abusivismo edilizio e l’irregolare gestione del ciclo delle acque e dei rifiuti; grazie a questo attivismo Legambiente Siracusa è diventata un punto di riferimento per i cittadini nelle lotte ambientali e un interlocutore serio per le istituzioni locali.

LUOGO: Siracusa è un’antica città della Magna Grecia fondata nell’VIII sec. a.C. le cui gloriose vestigia testimoniano il suo passato di potente megalopoli. Si possono infatti ammirare fra i tanti monumenti: il teatro greco, il tempio di Apollo, l’ara di Ierone e il castello Eurialo. Il centro storico è situato sull’isoletta di Ortigia in cui strette viuzze e palazzi di stile barocco fanno da scenario a caratteristici locali frequentati da molti giovani e turisti. A sud dell’isola di Ortigia vi è l’Area Marina Protetta del Plemmirio, le cui alte falesie cadono su un mare profondo e attraversato da correnti, che rendono l’acqua limpida e ricca di pesce.

L'Area marina protetta Plemmirio si trova sulla costa orientale di Siracusa ed è stata istituita nel 2004. È classificata come Area Specialmente Protetta di Interesse Mediterraneo. Una delle peculiarità delle regole dell AMP è quella di limitare le attività di pesca e prelievo con delle regolamentazioni specifiche, ma anche quella di promuovere ed effettuare dei programmi di studio, ricerca e ripopolamento abbinati a dei programmi didattici ed educativi che permettano la maggiore conoscenza e sensibilità nei confronti della natura.


 

LAVORO: pulizia di alcuni tratti di costa e di fondale anche all’interno dell’AMP del Plemmirio. Sensibilizzazione dei turisti e dei locali alle tematiche ambientalistiche.

I volontari hanno l’opportunità di avvicinarsi a pratiche di ecologia domestica quali la raccolta differenziata, il risparmio idrico ed energetico, l’alimentazione basata su prodotti locali e di stagione. La vita di gruppo è un aspetto fondamentale, essa favorisce lo scambio culturale e la scoperta del territorio.

ATTIVITA’ FORMATIVE: 

Immersioni guidate per brevettati. 

Corso di Sommozzatore 1° Grado AR e 2° Grado AR, con rilascio di brevetto internazionale. 

Corso di Apnea 1° Grado e 2° grado. 

Seawatching e snorkeling (per chi non interessato alle immersioni con autorespiratore). 

Escursioni in barca. 

Nozioni di arte marinaresca. 

Escursioni presso riserve naturali e nei siti archeologici della città antica. 

Ingressi autorizzati all’interno della Zona A (zona di riserva integrale) dell’AMP del Plemmirio. 

Pulizia di alcuni tratti di fondale.

Caretta Caretta sull'isola dei conigli

PAESE: ITALIA
CONTRIBUTO: 250
TARGET: Adulti
DATA INIZIO: 21 / 7 / 2016
DATA FINE: 30 / 7 / 2016

PROGETTO: I campi di volontariato si svolgono nella spiaggia dell’Isola dei Conigli, zona A di Riserva Naturale, in quanto sito di ovodeposizione della tartaruga marina Caretta caretta, specie protetta perché rara e minacciata di estinzione.

I campi hanno una duplice finalità:

- contribuire alla tutela della spiaggia, intensamente frequentata a fini balneari, in modo da garantire il mantenimento delle condizioni ambientali idonee all’ovodeposizione di Caretta caretta, controllando e limitando l’impatto antropico sul sito;

- sorvegliare e proteggere i nidi di Caretta caretta, dalla deposizione alla schiusa.

Questi campi sono una grande occasione per quanti, appassionati della natura, vogliono prendersene cura svolgendo attività utili e insieme entusiasmanti, in uno dei luoghi più belli di Lampedusa e del Mediterraneo, meritevole di essere salvaguardato per la sua bellezza e per la sua grande importanza naturalistica. Sono diverse centinaia i volontari che ogni anno hanno contribuito in modo attivo e determinante alla tutela della spiaggia dei Conigli che, fino alla data dell’istituzione della Riserva, versava in grave stato di degrado. I visibili risultati positivi raggiunti nel corso del tempo, sono stati possibili anche grazie all’insostituibile ruolo del volontariato ambientale.


CIRCOLO: Il Circolo Legambiente Esther Ada nasce a Lampedusa nel 2011 ed è principalmente coinvolto nell’organizzazione delle campagne nazionali di Legambiente e nella realizzazione di progetti relativi a problematiche di carattere ambientale e sociale. In collaborazione con la Riserva Naturale “Isola di Lampedusa” propone attività di educazione ambientale agli studenti delle scuole dell’isola e si occupa dell’organizzazione dei campi di volontariato per la tutela della Spiaggia dei Conigli, sito di deposizione della tartaruga marina Caretta caretta.

LUOGO: Molto più vicina all’Africa che alla Sicilia, Lampedusa appartiene all’Arcipelago delle Pelagie. Nel 1996 la Regione Siciliana ha istituito la Riserva Naturale Orientata “Isola di Lampedusa”, affidata in gestione a Legambiente Sicilia. L’area protetta si estende per circa 360 ettari lungo un’ampia fascia incontaminata della costa meridionale dell’isola ed è finalizzata alla conservazione delle espressioni più significative della fauna e della flora presenti sul territorio, comprendenti numerosi endemismi e specie note solo per Lampedusa. La spiaggia dei Conigli, uno dei luoghi più significativi e visitati della riserva, è stata per anni oggetto di ogni forma di abuso e degrado, ma grazie ai numerosi interventi di recupero ambientale, controllo e sensibilizzazione effettuati dall’Ente Gestore fin dall’istituzione della riserva, oggi rappresenta un modello di gestione e di promozione di un turismo sostenibile, che ha saputo coniugare la conservazione della natura con la fruizione del territorio.  

LAVORO: Il campo prevede lo svolgimento di turni giornalieri di 6 ore e turni notturni di 8–10 ore.

I turni giornalieri sono finalizzati al controllo della balneazione, mediante sorveglianza ed attività di informazione e sensibilizzazione dei bagnanti, in modo da far rispettare i regolamenti vigenti nella riserva. Dalle 8 alle 20.00 i volontari si alterneranno per coprire due postazioni fisse: una all’ingresso della Riserva e una sulla spiaggia. All’ingresso, i volontari forniranno informazioni e materiali divulgativi ai visitatori e faranno in modo che attrezzi ed oggetti dei quali è vietato l’ingresso o l’uso nella Riserva, vengano depositati prima di accedere in Riserva.

In spiaggia, i volontari sorveglieranno i nidi deposti, saranno punto di riferimento per quanti vogliono conoscere la biologia riproduttiva di Caretta caretta e svolgeranno attività di sensibilizzazione per orientare la fruizione della spiaggia verso forme compatibili con l’importanza del sito (distribuiranno posacenere per evitare l'abbandono di mozziconi sulla spiaggia, inviteranno al rispetto delle norme comportamentali da osservare, contribuiranno alla tutela dello specchio acqueo antistante la spiaggia mediante una canoa, ecc.).

I volontari, inoltre, collaboreranno nelle attività di rilevamento dei dati sulla fruizione e saranno di sostegno agli operatori addetti al monitoraggio per il rilevamento dei dati sui nidi di tartaruga e sui piccoli. I turni notturni si svolgeranno presso la struttura ubicata all’ingresso della riserva e sono finalizzati ad impedire l’accesso in spiaggia di eventuali visitatori durante la notte, che potrebbero pregiudicare gli eventi di nidificazione della tartaruga.

ATTIVITA’ FORMATIVE: All’inizio di ogni campo i volontari parteciperanno ad un incontro formativo presso la sede della Riserva (tenuto dal personale della Riserva), durante il quale verranno fornite le principali informazioni sull’area protetta (storia, caratteristiche, regolamento, ecc.)  e sulla biologia della tartaruga marina.

ALLOGGIO: I volontari saranno ospitati in una casa poco distante dal centro del paese, con cucina attrezzata, due bagni e camere dotate di letti a castello.  

REQUISITI RICHIESTI: Buona attitudine a camminare; capacità di svolgere le attività anche in presenza di particolari condizioni climatiche (essere in grado di trascorrere diverse ore sotto il sole, ma anche in presenza di vento, umidità, pioggia, zanzare…). Non costituisce un requisito obbligatorio, ma per chi ne ha le capacità, è richiesto l’utilizzo di una canoa e saper montare una tenda da campo. Il campo non è adatto a persone con disabilità (fisiche o psichiche)

PROGETTO: Legambiente Paestum si è fatta carico di trasformare un’area degradata - il tratto di duna costiera a valle dell’area archeologica - in un laboratorio open-air per la conoscenza dell’ecosistema costiero visitato da ricercatori, scolaresche e turisti. La duna, infatti, costituisce l’elemento di maggior pregio ambientale dell’ecosistema per la presenza della vegetazione psammofila, in particolare del giglio di mare, che in questo tratto di costa fiorisce in grande quantità. Denominata oggi “Oasi Dunale”, l’area è al contempo esperimento di laboratorio sociale che nella bella stagione organizza performances artistiche, concerti, cineforum, presentazioni di libri, campi e progetti di volontariato.

Legambiente Paestum collabora all’inclusione sociale dei migranti ospiti del centro di accoglienza di Paestum. Molteplici sono le attività messe in campo per favorire l’inclusione sociale dei migranti, si va dai corsi di lingua, alla condivisione di momenti di socializzazione, alla partecipazione attiva dei migranti ad attività finalizzate al miglioramento della fruizione dei beni comuni, tra cui la cinta muraria di Paestum e l’Oasi dunale gestita dal Circolo. Il progetto si propone di far sentire i migranti che parteciperanno alla vita del campo protagonisti di un progetto di valorizzazione del territorio che li ospita. Condividere con loro un’esperienza di vita quotidiana aiutandoli anche nell’apprendimento della lingua e a valorizzare le loro competenze e capacità.  Farli sentire partecipi alle dinamiche che si sviluppano in un campo di volontariato.

CIRCOLO: A Paestum Legambiente è in azione tutto l’anno svolgendo attività di tutela e valorizzazione della natura e dell’ambiente. Nato nel 1987, il circolo Freewheeling è attualmente impegnato nel progetto "Paestumanità" teso alla valorizzazione dell’area archeologica, con cui si pone la bellezza al centro dell’agire socio-politico. Un altro progetto in corso è "Bellezza Italia" che con il sentiero degli argonauti mira a ricomporre il rapporto tra la città antica e il mare. Inoltre il circolo è impegnato nella campagna "No Tonz" contro l'artificializzazione della costa.

LUOGO: Paestum (comune di Capaccio) è un piccolo centro con un’importante area archeologica. Fu fondata durante il VI secolo a.C. dai Greci che costruirono i templi che ancora oggi sono tra i meglio conservati dell’area mediterranea. Le sue belle spiagge, il clima mediterraneo, l’area archeologica con i suoi templi monumentali sono un’attrattiva per molti turisti e visitatori. La città antica è strategicamente posizionata a pochi chilometri a sud della costiera Amalfitana e a nord della costiera Cilentana, fungendo da porta del Parco Nazionale del Cilento. 

LAVORO: attività di bonifica ambientale  dell’Oasi dunale, accoglienza dei fruitori, cartellonistica, preparazione terza edizione Festambiente Paestumanità, condivisione attività con i migranti.

ATTIVITA’ FORMATIVE: i volontari parteciperanno ad attività formative sui temi dell’inclusione sociale dei migranti e della conservazione dell’habitat costiero.

ALLOGGIO: casa privata/foresteria. Strutture Oasi dunale sul mare. 

REQUISITI RICHIESTI: apertura mentale e forte spirito di condivisione. Conoscenza di base dell'inglese o francese.

DATA INIZIO: 23 / 7 / 2016
DATA FINE: 30 / 7 / 2016

PROGETTO: Swimtrekking significa letteralmente trekking a nuoto: è un modo originale per vivere e sentire l’ambiente, un viaggio in mare con maschera, boccaglio, pinne, muta, portando con sé tutto il necessario per l’escursione in un piccolo scafo in vetroresina da trainare: il barkino. 

L’attività di swimtrekking migliora la propria tecnica individuale nel nuoto, sviluppa l’autocontrollo e la conoscenza di sé e di una serie di tecniche quali l’apnea e il salvamento, studia la flora e la fauna, il moto ondoso, i venti e le correnti, rafforza e accresce le dinamiche del gruppo. 

Attraverso la guida di un istruttore ogni 6 partecipanti, i volontari esploreranno e monitoreranno i fondali marini e i tratti costieri partecipando alla raccolta dati FOCUS Meteo Meduse e recupereranno i rifiuti che saranno poi utilizzati per la realizzazione di opere artistiche. Queste saranno fotografate e poi distrutte, quindi smaltite e, ove possibile, differenziate. I volontari saranno di volta in volta addestrati dai responsabili dell'associazione a riportare - tramite Focus-Meteomeduse o via e-mail - le osservazioni sulla presenza, abbondanza, e identità specifica di meduse rilevate durante le escursioni in mare. Le segnalazioni contribuiscono tuttora ad arricchire il database delle segnalazioni che è ora utilizzato per lo sviluppo di un modello statistico per la previsione delle proliferazioni di meduse nei mari italiani. 

Gli istruttori della ASD Swimtrekking hanno una formazione specifica per guidare le varie fasi di un campo che abbracciano competenze tecniche dello swimtrekking, della biologia marina e dell’ambientalismo, oltre alle fasi di recupero e riciclaggio artistico dei rifiuti.

I volontari affronteranno le seguenti tematiche:

1) Conoscere il mare

2) Flora e fauna del mediterraneo – Focus Meteo Meduse

3) Fotografare in acqua

4) Riciclo artistico dei materiali di rifiuto 

5) Marine and beach litter

6) Nuotare in mare - Conoscenza del nuoto e degli aspetti relativi alla sicurezza in mare e al salvamento, alle situazioni meteo-marine, ai venti, alla forza del moto ondoso, alle correnti

7) Aspetti pratici e teorici dello swimtrekking

8) Ecologia domestica


CIRCOLO: La ASD Swimtrekking è una associazione sportiva dilettantistica affiliata alla UISP che da oltre 20 anni organizza il trekking a nuoto in varie località del Mar Mediterraneo e del mondo. 

L’attività dello Swimtrekking nasce con l’intento di esplorare e monitorare l’ambiente marino e si sostanzia nella realizzazione di corsi e stage, sia in piscina che in mare, le cui tematiche spaziano dalla tecnica dello Swimtrekking e dell’allenamento agli aspetti teorici e pratici della sicurezza in mare, della conoscenza della flora e della fauna, della tutela e salvaguardia dell'habitat marino, dello studio e della conoscenza dei venti, delle correnti e delle condizioni meteo-marine esclusivamente in funzione dell’attività stessa che porta. Le attività Swimtrekking coinvolgono bambini, adolescenti, famiglie, adulti e diversamente abili e seguono un progetto ambientale e sociale condotto da un team di educatori e tecnici del settore. 


LUOGO:  La Riserva naturale statale Torre Guaceto è una riserva naturale statale situata sulla costa adriatica dell'alto Salento, a pochi chilometri dai centri di Carovigno e San Vito dei Normanni e 27 km da Brindisi. Questo tratto di costa, lungo sei chilometri, comprende un paesaggio dai forti caratteri mediterranei che dal mare scivola oltre le dune, attraverso la macchia mediterranea e le paludi, fino ad un uliveto secolare. L’estensione della riserva è di circa 1.200 ettari. I volontari avranno il compito di contribuire alla tutela ed alla salvaguardia di questo territorio attraverso il lavoro che oltre al monitoraggio delle varie specie marine ed in particolare delle meduse (FOCUS METEO MEDUSE), si occuperà di pulire le spiagge ed i fondali situati all’interno dell’Area Marina Protetta e nelle zone adiacenti. 


LAVORO: I volontari rimuoveranno i rifiuti dai fondali e da tratti di costa e li trasporteranno sull’isola. Al termine delle attività in acqua si progetteranno e realizzeranno delle opere artistiche, utilizzando solo i materiali recuperati dal mare e dalle coste. Ispirandosi al progetto Waste-land dell’artista brasiliano Vik Muniz, i rifiuti saranno assemblati per riprodurre una o più foto fatte dai volontari che rappresentino il campo. La riproduzione sarà poi fotografata dall’alto. Le opere verranno poi distrutte e smaltite e, ove possibile, differenziate. I volontari si occuperanno inoltre dell’attività di Marine and beach litter indagando sulla quantità e tipologia di rifiuti raccolti sulle spiagge raggiunte durante il campo al fine di contribuire alla Direttiva europea sulla Marine Strategy. Tutte le attività del campo, il lavoro in mare e il lavoro artistico saranno documentate con una macchina fotografica compatta scafandrata messa a disposizione dall’organizzazione insieme a un computer. A fine campo sarà realizzato un video con tutti i contenuti delle attività svolte e consegnato ai partecipanti (se muniti di penna USB). Altro aspetto fondamentale del campo sarà il censimento di specie marine e in particolare delle meduse. l’Associazione ha collaborato al progetto MED-JELLYRISK della ENPI CBCMED (Integrated monitoring of jellyfish outbreaks under anthropogenic and climatic impacts in the mediterranean sea – coastal zones - ) per il 2012 – 2015 http://jellyrisk.eu/it/. Compito della ASD Swimtrekking è stato quello di monitorare la presenza di meduse lungo le zone costiere di tutte le località del mediterraneo in oggetto catalogandone le diverse specie e la quantità. Le attività inerenti il censimento delle meduse restano comunque attive attraverso il Focus Meteo Meduse che ha come partner scientifici: CIESM, Università del Salento, CoNISMa, Vectors, CoCoNet, Perseus, CNR ISMAR, Marevivo, Stazione di biologia marina di Porto Cesareo, Lega Navale Italiana, Museo dell’Ambiente. 


ATTIVITA’ FORMATIVE: I volontari, adeguatamente formati per l’osservazione delle meduse, avranno il compito di censire, catalogare e studiare i comportamenti delle meduse incontrate durante le attività di esplorazione in mare lungo le coste. I volontari seguiranno inoltre le direttive tema del progetto marine and beach litter per la conservazione dell'ambiente naturalistico. 


ALLOGGIO:  Situati all’interno della Riserva Naturale di Torre Guaceto, gli alloggi  che ospiteranno i volontari sono case rurali di contadini locali. Si tratta di 5/6 strutture fornite di camere da letto, cucina, servizi e aree comuni. La Posizione è invidiabile visto che ci troviamo nel cuore della riserva naturale di Torre Guaceto ed alle numerose attrattive della zona (Ostuni, Alberobello, Lecce, Valle D'Itria, ecc.). L’aeroporto di Brindisi dista 25 km. La zona mare dove si svolgeranno le attività del campo, è in gran parte caratterizzata da scogliera bassa e piccole zone di sabbia ed abbraccia anche il tratto costiero al di fuori della Riserva Marina di Torre Guaceto.


REQUISITI RICHIESTI: L’attività dello Swimtrekking si basa sul nuoto. Sarà quindi fondamentale che tutti i volontari sappiano nuotare i due stili principali: lo stile libero e lo stile dorso. Specifichiamo inoltre che non sono assolutamente importanti i tempi di percorrenza e la tecnica individuale ma una discreta capacità di resistenza. Si richiede quindi una certa consuetudine con l’attività sportiva di qualsiasi genere sia pur blanda. Le persone molto sedentarie non sono adatte a questo tipo di esperienza. L’attività di Swimtrekking migliora la propria tecnica individuale nel nuoto, sviluppa l’autocontrollo e la conoscenza di se, fa conoscere una serie di tecniche quali l’apnea e il salvamento, studia la flora e la fauna, il moto ondoso, i venti e le correnti, rafforza e accresce le dinamiche del gruppo. Chiunque può quindi affrontare in maniera positiva l’esperienza di un campo Swimtrekking se interessato a sperimentare le conoscenze da noi proposte.

PROGETTO: Il campo si propone come obiettivo principe la condivisione di abitudini sostenibili. Attraverso la condivisione, i volontari avranno modo di confrontarsi e interagire. Inoltre avranno modo di lavorare e condividere l’esperienza con le altre realtà associative presenti nel territorio.

CIRCOLO: Il circolo Ancipa nasce nel 2001. A partire dalla fondazione avvia una serie di campagne di sensibilizzazione e attività di collaborazione con le scuole di ogni ordine e grado. Si è fatto promotore di diverse battaglie locali, e attualmente collabora con il comune in diversi progetti. Gestisce, attraverso un progetto finanziato dal ministero, un centro di educazione ambientale. Collabora con altre realtà associative. Gestisce il sentiero dell’Ancipa.

LUOGO: Troina è un comune dell’entroterra siciliano situato in provincia di Enna. Sorge a 1120 m. s.l.m. e gode di un maestoso paesaggio. Dotato di circa 4200 ettari di terreno, è un comune sito nel cuore del Parco dei Nebrodi. Testimonia i fasti di un passato glorioso: prima capitale normanna e prima sede vescovile. Il Conte Ruggero la scelse come caposaldo per la liberazione della Sicilia dal dominio arabo. Qui infatti sorge la prima cattedrale normanna di Sicilia, distrutta a seguito dei terremoti del 1600 e poi ricostruita, e sono presenti i ruderi dei primi monasteri basiliani. A seguito dello spostamento della capitale, Troina nonostante ciò conservò la prerogativa di città demaniale per tutto il periodo moderno.  Tuttavia le origini della città sono antichissime. La recente scoperta di una fattoria preistorica risalente al 3400 a. c. rivelò la presenza di insediamenti antropici risalente al periodo castellucciano.  Diversi storici sono concordi nell’affermare che Troina corrispose all’antica città greca di Engyon, sede del tempio delle Dee Madri. Nel periodo contemporaneo durante la seconda guerra mondiale ha vissuto la tragica Battaglia di Troina. 

LAVORO: Sentiero circumlacuale Ancipa: sentieristica, cartellonistica, pulizia ambientale, realizzazione di piazzole soste, ripristino archeologico e infine attività di antincendio. I volontari saranno impegnati nel ripristino del percorso intorno al lago e nella continuazione del percorso di costruzione di naturalistico. Inoltre saranno coinvolti anche nella ristrutturazione di una vecchio mulino a vento. Il lavoro consisterà nella pulizia della zona da materiale di risulta. Attraverso il campo di volontariato, l’associazione si occupa della manutenzione del sentiero per permettere la fruizione ai cittadini del luogo e ai visitatori.

Ripristino dello spiazzo in cui è sito un Mulino a Vento medievale: pulizia, realizzazione di panche per creare un piccolo parco urbano, ripristino architettonico e organizzazione eventi. I volontari, attraverso l’ausilio di figure specializzate e con la collaborazione di altre associazioni, saranno impiegati nella realizzazione di un parco urbano.

ALLOGGIO: I volontari saranno ospitati presso un edificio scolastico dotato di una cucina e dei servizi. L’istituto si compone i circa 5 stanze.

DESCRIPTION: Yes, you too can contribute to building peace -at the heart of a large, green enchanted forest is an old stone bridge! Today, we can say that it is a symbol of peace between people as it was thanks to 3 years of collective and intercultural construction works that it was saved. Morlhon-Le-Haut hosts a group of international volunteers for the fourth time, this year focused on the reconstruction of this bridge. Perched on a hill surrounded by woods, the village housed this almost forgotten little heritage site. One of the two arches of the bridge was destroyed by a flood fifty years ago; its reconstruction started two years ago and it is now finished thanks to the intervention of two groups of international volunteers. In 2015, the third group of volunteers started the finishing works and it is now up to you to raise this monument for peace! PARTNER DESCRIPTION: WORK DESCRIPTION: You will work in a wonderful natural environment in the fourth and last phase of the reconstruction of the bridge. The previous works allowed the bridge to be able to stand again. Now the goal is to make it completely feasible by executing finishing works. These include laying reinforcement stones and building security low walls on both arches as well as the installation of outside equipment such as a picnic table and paneling for the future visitors. Another component of the workcamp will be dedicated to the creation of pedestrian trails conducting to the bridge. A municipal worker, who is both very passionate and knowledgeable of masonry techniques, will be at your side to introduce you to traditional stone bridge building techniques. ACCOMODATION AND FOOD: In dormitories in the village’s events hall LOCATION AND LEISURE: Leisure activities : Outside the work time, you will have the opportunity to discover this little part of the Northwest of Aveyron which is rich in natural wonders such as the Aveyron and Doulouze Canyons, and in architectural patrimony : bastides, abbeys, castles. You will also be able to participate in local festivities such as the “Festival on Bastides” about the street art in the surrounding medieval cities and specially the Morlhon’s “Lake Party” where the “Classards” -local youth- traditionally go around the village offering flowers in each house. And of course, you will enjoy the enriching encounters with the local residents who, used to welcoming international volunteers, will regularly offer to teach you about their local traditions and the unique story of their village.

CONTRIBUTO: 730 Euro
TARGET: Adulti
DATA INIZIO: 29 / 7 / 2016
DATA FINE: 7 / 8 / 2016

PROGETTO: Swimtrekking significa letteralmente trekking a nuoto: è un modo originale per vivere e sentire l’ambiente, un viaggio in mare con maschera, boccaglio, pinne, muta, portando con sé tutto il necessario per l’escursione in un piccolo scafo in vetroresina da trainare: il barkino. 

L’attività di swimtrekking migliora la propria tecnica individuale nel nuoto, sviluppa l’autocontrollo e la conoscenza di sé e di una serie di tecniche quali l’apnea e il salvamento, studia la flora e la fauna, il moto ondoso, i venti e le correnti, rafforza e accresce le dinamiche del gruppo. 

Attraverso la guida di un istruttore ogni 6 partecipanti, i volontari esploreranno e monitoreranno i fondali marini e i tratti costieri partecipando alla raccolta dati FOCUS Meteo Meduse e recupereranno i rifiuti che saranno poi utilizzati per la realizzazione di opere artistiche. Queste saranno fotografate e poi distrutte, quindi smaltite e, ove possibile, differenziate. I volontari saranno di volta in volta addestrati dai responsabili dell'associazione a riportare - tramite Focus-Meteomeduse o via e-mail - le osservazioni sulla presenza, abbondanza, e identità specifica di meduse rilevate durante le escursioni in mare. Le segnalazioni contribuiscono tuttora ad arricchire il database delle segnalazioni che è ora utilizzato per lo sviluppo di un modello statistico per la previsione delle proliferazioni di meduse nei mari italiani. 

Gli istruttori della ASD Swimtrekking hanno una formazione specifica per guidare le varie fasi di un campo che abbracciano competenze tecniche dello swimtrekking, della biologia marina e dell’ambientalismo, oltre alle fasi di recupero e riciclaggio artistico dei rifiuti.

I volontari affronteranno le seguenti tematiche:

1) Conoscere il mare

2) Flora e fauna del mediterraneo – Focus Meteo Meduse

3) Fotografare in acqua

4) Riciclo artistico dei materiali di rifiuto 

5) Marine and beach litter

6) Nuotare in mare - Conoscenza del nuoto e degli aspetti relativi alla sicurezza in mare e al salvamento, alle situazioni meteo-marine, ai venti, alla forza del moto ondoso, alle correnti

7) Aspetti pratici e teorici dello swimtrekking.

8) Ecologia domestica


CIRCOLO: La ASD Swimtrekking è una associazione sportiva dilettantistica affiliata alla UISP che da oltre 20 anni organizza il trekking a nuoto in varie località del Mar Mediterraneo e del mondo. 

L’attività dello Swimtrekking nasce con l’intento di esplorare e monitorare l’ambiente marino e si sostanzia nella realizzazione di corsi e stage, sia in piscina che in mare, le cui tematiche spaziano dalla tecnica dello Swimtrekking e dell’allenamento agli aspetti teorici e pratici della sicurezza in mare, della conoscenza della flora e della fauna, della tutela e salvaguardia dell'habitat marino, dello studio e della conoscenza dei venti, delle correnti e delle condizioni meteo-marine esclusivamente in funzione dell’attività stessa che porta. Le attività Swimtrekking coinvolgono bambini, adolescenti, famiglie, adulti e diversamente abili e seguono un progetto ambientale e sociale condotto da un team di educatori e tecnici del settore. 


LUOGO:  La bella e tranquilla isola di Itaca, famosa per essere stata la patria di Ulisse, è separata dall’isola di Cefalonia da un canale di 3 km di larghezza. La costa orientale è aspra e a strapiombo, mentre quella occidentale è verde e leggermente inclinata verso il Mar Ionio. L’interno è montuoso, ricoperto da pini, cipressi, olivi e vigneti. L’isola è ricca di piccoli villaggi e numerosi siti archeologici. Il mare dalle acque cristalline che si esplorerà in questo campo è ricchissimo di flora, fauna e reperti archeologici. Kioni è la località dove avrà sede il campo, un pittoresco villaggio di pescatori, con un grazioso porticciolo commerciale, caratterizato da stradine, negozi, taverne e café. Incantevoli calette rendono il luogo un vero e proprio paradiso terrestre. Nonostante ciò, determinati punti dell’isola di Itaca, sono particolarmente esposti alle correnti che depositano sulle spiagge e lungo la costa un notevole quantitativo di rifiuti con una altissima percentuale di polistirolo (si tratta delle casette in cui i pescherecci conservano il pescato e che poi finiscono in mare). In accordo con il Sindaco di Itaca sarà quindi compito dei volontari pulire le spiagge inaccesibili da terra. A completamento della pulizia effettuata dai volontari, sarà l’amministrazione locale a provvedere alla rimozione della spazzatura. 


LAVORO: I volontari rimuoveranno i rifiuti dai fondali e da tratti di costa e li trasporteranno sull’isola. Al termine delle attività in acqua si progetteranno e realizzeranno delle opere artistiche, utilizzando solo i materiali recuperati dal mare e dalle coste. Ispirandosi al progetto Waste-land dell’artista brasiliano Vik Muniz, i rifiuti saranno assemblati per riprodurre una o più foto fatte dai volontari che rappresentino il campo. La riproduzione sarà poi fotografata dall’alto. Le opere verranno poi distrutte e quindi smaltite grazie alla collaborazione con l’amministrazione locale di Itaca. I volontari si occuperanno inoltre dell’attività di Marine and beach litter indagando sulla quantità e tipologia di rifiuti raccolti sulle spiagge raggiunte durante il campo al fine di contribuire alla Direttiva europea sulla Marine Strategy. Tutte le attività del campo, il lavoro in mare e il lavoro artistico saranno documentate con una macchina fotografica compatta scafandrata messa a disposizione dall’organizzazione insieme a un computer. A fine campo sarà realizzato un video con tutti i contenuti delle attività svolte e consegnato ai partecipanti (se muniti di penna USB o hard disk esterno). Altro aspetto fondamentale del campo sarà il censimento di specie marine e in particolare delle meduse. l’Associazione ha collaborato al progetto MED-JELLYRISK della ENPI CBCMED (Integrated monitoring of jellyfish outbreaks under anthropogenic and climatic impacts in the mediterranean sea – coastal zones - ) per il 2012 – 2015 http://jellyrisk.eu/it/. Compito della ASD Swimtrekking è stato quello di monitorare la presenza di meduse lungo le zone costiere di tutte le località del mediterraneo in oggetto catalogandone le diverse specie e la quantità. Le attività inerenti il censimento delle meduse restano comunque attive attraverso il Focus Meteo Meduse che ha come partner scientifici: CIESM, Università del Salento, CoNISMa, Vectors, CoCoNet, Perseus, CNR ISMAR, Marevivo, Stazione di biologia marina di Porto Cesareo, Lega Navale Italiana, Museo dell’Ambiente. 


ATTIVITA’ FORMATIVE: I volontari, adeguatamente formati per l’osservazione delle meduse, avranno il compito di censire, catalogare e studiare i comportamenti delle meduse incontrate durante le attività di esplorazione in mare lungo le coste. I volontari seguiranno inoltre le direttive tema del progetto marine and beach litter per la conservazione dell'ambiente naturalistico. 

ALLOGGIO:  Captain’s Apartmenst sono dei confortevoli e graziosi appartamenti (monolocali e bilocali, attrezzati di cucine e ampi spazi comuni), situati nella parte alta del villaggio a pochi minuti a piedi dalla marina e dal caratteristico porticciolo turistico di Kioni. 

REQUISITI RICHIESTI: L’attività dello Swimtrekking si basa sul nuoto. Sarà quindi fondamentale che tutti i volontari sappiano nuotare i due stili principali: lo stile libero e lo stile dorso. Specifichiamo inoltre che non sono assolutamente importanti i tempi di percorrenza e la tecnica individuale ma una discreta capacità di resistenza. Si richiede quindi una certa consuetudine con l’attività sportiva di qualsiasi genere sia pur blanda. Le persone molto sedentarie non sono adatte a questo tipo di esperienza. L’attività di Swimtrekking migliora la propria tecnica individuale nel nuoto, sviluppa l’autocontrollo e la conoscenza di se, fa conoscere una serie di tecniche quali l’apnea e il salvamento, studia la flora e la fauna, il moto ondoso, i venti e le correnti, rafforza e accresce le dinamiche del gruppo. Chiunque può quindi affrontare in maniera positiva l’esperienza di un campo Swimtrekking se interessato a sperimentare le conoscenze da noi proposte.

DESCRIPTION: PARTNER DESCRIPTION: The history of Open Houses dates back to the mid-1980s, when a group of young people began to restore actual disused village churches. The focus lies on restoration and public use of historical monuments, which allows a long-lasting and effective recovery of the buildings. Currently Open Houses has several historic buildings in its care. All of them are attractive ensembles which display centuries of history. But most of them stood vacant for a very long time and suffered serious structural damage. WORK DESCRIPTION: Continuing the World Heritage Volunteers projects having taken place since 2012 at the World Heritage site Classical Weimar the project will support the revitalisation of abandoned parts of Belvedere Park. The volunteers will – based on historical plans and in intensive cooperation with the site management – uncover and restore historical paths which had been disappeared some decades ago. A part of the group will – alternating from day to day – carry out different gardening and preservation works in other parks belonging to the World Heritage site in mixed groups of international volunteers and local workers, in the same time enabling the participants to get to know the diversity of the World Heritage site Classical Weimar. In these parks are many sloping areas where it is only possible to deal with manual work. The volunteers will support the works as cutting grass, cleaning paths, etc. The study part will give the theoretical background for the project. Depending on the interests of the volunteers there will be lections and guided tours about Classical Weimar mostly organised by Classic Foundation Weimar, the main project partner. The study part will also bring the project and the World Heritage Volunteers programme in general into a wider public. It will include meetings with the press and presentations held by the participants about World Heritage sites of their home countries. In their spare time the volunteers will have the possibility to visit museums and exhibitions – for the duration of the project they will have free entrance to all museums managed by Classic Foundation Weimar. The best way to be mobile in a town like Weimar with a lot of gardens and parks is to discover it by bike. Therefore the participants will have during their stay bicycles for their disposal, which they also have to use to reach the different working places. Depending on the interests of the volunteers an excursion to another historical complex will be organised on the weekend – to Gotha Residence Castle with its park, which is one of the biggest parks in Germany and includes the eldest English garden outside Great Britain. ACCOMODATION AND FOOD: shared 6- or 8- bed-room in a hostel in the city LOCATION AND LEISURE: Weimar is a beautiful small city, located in the middle of Germany in the state of Thuringia. In the late 18th and early 19th centuries this small town saw a remarkable cultural flowering. Enlightened ducal patronage attracted many leading German writers, composers and artists to the town, including Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Friedrich Schiller and Franz Liszt, thus making Weimar the cultural centre of Europe at that time. This development is reflected in the high quality of many of the buildings and parks in the surrounding area. “Classical Weimar” was added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1998, the 20th site in Germany to be recognised as World Heritage. “Classical Weimar” comprises twelve individual buildings and ensembles, all of which portray tangible and intangible elements of Classical Weimar’s cultural heritage. Weimar’s City Castle, the Duchess Anna Amalia Library, Goethe’s and Schiller’s residences, the Town Church, the Ducal Vault with the Historic Cemetery and many others are included on the World Heritage List. Weimar’s historical parks and gardens connect the historical buildings and their surrounding grounds and are a key feature in the “Classical Weimar” collection: the Park on the Ilm with the Roman House and Goethe’s Garden House, Belvedere Park with its Castle and Orangery, Tiefurt Park and Castle and Ettersburg Park and Castle. During the 20th century Weimar became the birthplace of the Modern Movement in architecture and aesthetics. “Bauhaus” was developed by merging the Grand Ducal School of Arts and Crafts and the Weimar Academy of Fine Arts. “Bauhaus” had, and still has, a profound influence upon developments in art, architecture, design and typography. The “Bauhaus and its Sites in Weimar and Dessau” are listed as UNESCO World Heritage, too. For all this historical marks Weimar became in 1999 European Capital of Culture.

Please note !

This is not a classical Workcamp, the project is part of an international Youth Meeting 


Good knowledge of English or German and interest in the topic is required.



Project: For 34 years, the International Youth Meeting is a place for young people from all over the world to discuss issues concerning the past, the present and the future. Young people will look at the history of the concentration camp at Dachau, National Socialism and present forms of exclusion, racism and discrimination. The principles of exchanging ideas, experiencing different cultural backgrounds, as well as Holocaust education are the core ideas of the International Youth Meeting. It is primarily organized by a team of volunteers. Many survivors of the National Socialist regime will talk about their personal experiences of persecution, whether in the concentration or labour camps or working in the resistance. 

Background: In March 1933 one of the first Nazi concentration camps was established in the town of Dachau, near Munich. The Dachau concentration camp became a model for other concentration camps and also a place of the Nazi SS. Over 200.000 people from different countries were imprisoned in Dachau between 1933 and 1945. Thousands of prisoners died from terror and the consequences of inhuman practices, diseases, exhaustion and hunger. In 1965 as a result of the initiative of some survivors of the concentration camp the place became a memorial place. And in 1983 there was offered the first youth meeting organized by young people of the region.

Program: To remember – to meet – to understand and to work for the future will be our guiding slogan in these two weeks. We will learn about the history of the concentration camp Dachau and other aspects of the Nationals Socialism in Germany. We will always ask: What did we learn about this? Where do we find racism, antisemitism and discrimination today? The program consists of different workshops, discussions with eye-witnesses and Holocaust survivors, guided tours through the Memorial Site, tours in Dachau and Munich, day trips. There is also time for personal conversation, sports, parties and the chance to experience the historical sites from at the present time.

Leisure time: There will be free time for fun and games, day-trips, entertainment, getting to know the people, going to cafés, etc. However, please notice that there is not enough free time for self-organized day trips during the IYM. 

Accommodation: Accommodation is at the Dachau Youth Guest House in rooms for four people. The participation fee includes: full board and lodging, together with the cost incurred by the program.

Region: Dachau is very close to Munich

Remarks: Please bring clothes which suit the work and the weather, musical instruments, games, songbooks or whatever you want for the leisure time... Materials of the study part of the camp, a map of your country, photos and things that help you to describe your country to other participants of the workcamp.

You should have a working knowledge of English and/or German to communicate without any difficulties. You should be interested in various subjects and in taking part in workshops.

A letter of motivation is needed!

Additional costs: Additional fee of 160, - is including boarding, lodging and the program. To be payed upon arrival.

Project: In Spangenberg, a small village south of Kassel, in the middle of Germany, there is the „Himmelsfels“ (Heavensrock), a rock with an area of 8 hectares attached to it. Placed on this area there are so called embassies of different countries - caravans that have  been modified artistically by international guests of the Himmelsfels. Every year at Himmelsfels there are offered events concerning art, culture, gospel and youth encounter. This summer season there will be arranged several international youth camps for teenager and a special arts-project with the Nigerian artist Olayanju Dada. This project is called “the archive of dreams” and participants are invited to create an interactive intercultural library in an artistic way. At the moment building of the library is still under construction. The roof is made of a former radar dome and naked walls are waiting for the volunteers to be designed. The library is supposed to be the place where kids can write down their stories and their dreams. After some years it will be like an “Archive of Dreams”, full of testimonials of hundreds of peoples and ready to enjoy as interactive art exhibition. 

Beside this, volunteers will help us to enrich the current youth camps by supporting the activities run for the kids. The program will take place on the “Himmelsfels” itself.

The “Himmelsfels” foundation is a Christian organization which aims to developing spaces for intercultural and ecumenical exploration, as well as to motivating people for a life characterized by equality and common values. The project is especially directed to young people who support and are eager to join the community of Christian spirituality. For more information please see: http://www.himmelsfels.de/

Work: Workcamp participants are invited to work in different fields: Manual, artistically, pedagogical. There is manual work to be done by building the Archive of Dreams together with the artist. At the same time you can already design parts of the library. During the youth camps, you will have contact with kids from diverse background and join their activities as well. You are requested to be prepared as “ambassador” of the peoples living in your country. For this you will get a caravan, as home of your “embassy”. It would be helpful to be prepared to offer your own workshop artistically, musically or athletically at home and bring lots of ideas. In addition all volunteers will have the chance to introduce their country in an open evening. You should gather ideas at home and bring material for creating this evening. Further information will be prepared after the placement in the workcamp. Beside the announced activities help of the volunteers is also needed in the catering for all guests of the “Himmelsfels”.

Study part: The study part of this workcamp will be dominated mostly by the question about life between past and future, tradition and modernity, small-town-life and global correlations. Working on the “Himmelsfels“, always encourage encounters between people from different cultures and diverse background.

Remarks: Basic knowledge in German language is helpful in the contact with the Kids. Volunteers with interest in performing arts are very welcome and it would be great if you are interested in Christian spirituality. After confirmation, you will have to sign a self-commitment statement in terms of legal protection for children and young persons. Please bring a sleeping bag. As some summer nights can get cold in Germany, please bring some warm clothes and raingear! 

Accommodation: There will be basic accommodation. You will be sleeping in caravans. Please bring a sleeping bag. As some summer nights can get cold in Germany, please bring some warm clothes and raingear!

Project: The Peace Studies Center Sievershausen (Antikriegshaus Sievershausen) was established in the rooms of the Sievershausen Lutheran Church community almost 50 years ago. Those were the times when the Vietnam War escalated. Constant expansions followed, now there are several buildings, surrounded by a nice park, including a guest house and a museum with an assembly hall. The peace center shows within its diverse programme, that peace work has political, historical, pedagogical and cultural aspects. Through the year one can visit exhibitions, literary readings, lectures and many cultural events. In the seminar house students get trainings in nonviolent conflict resolution and every year an international workcamp is offered. For further information please visit http://antikriegshaus.de/.

Work: Volunteers are invited to redesign and repair a big mural in the village. It was first created by international volunteers as a triptych in the years 1983 – 84. Aim of the mural is to promote peace and to show different aspects of peace work. First version referred to the impact of „cold war”, later in the year 2000 there was added the importance of justice as basic principle for a peaceful society. This year we will add some more aspects and topics and it is also necessary to renovate some parts of the mural. Doing this requires some talent for designing and painting.

Participants who prefer to do manual labour, are invited to do some garden work or help with renovating another room in the center. 

Study: We will learn some essentials of peace work and get basic non-violent conflict management training. In the second week we will visit the former concentration camp of Bergen Belsen, and have some lessons on European history in the first part of the 20th century. 

Volunteers will have the opportunity to spend an evening in a German family and reverse, the group will invite the people of the village and region to an “Evening of encounter” (Abend der Begegnung) in the rooms of the Peace Center.

Leisure Time: In the leisure time, the group can use facilities of the seminar house and make an excursion to Hannover or Braunschweig.

Accommodation: The accommodation of the participants is carried out in rooms with 4 beds each. There are bed sheets available. Food is prepared together in the kitchen of the seminar house. 

Region: The Peace Center is at the verge of a village with about 2500 inhabitants. The Peace Center is near the historical location where in 1553 a battle took place. Sievershausen lies 30 kilometers east of the Lower Saxony provincial capital Hanover on the freeway to Berlin.

Diversamente Marinai propone un campo della durata di una settimana in barca a vela nell’Arcipelago Toscano. L’obiettivo è quello di promuovere la tutela del territorio marino e, contemporaneamente, sviluppare il senso della bellezza che la vita a bordo di un imbarcazione può trasmettere. Non ci può essere vera salvaguardia dell’ambiente senza la capacità di poter apprezzare il paesaggio naturale. Il campo di lavoro vuole realizzare interventi concreti per migliorare la qualità ambientale, mostrando all’equipaggio come vivere sul mare e con il mare sia un’esperienza unica e indimenticabile. La pulizia delle spiagge inaccessibili a piedi, il monitoraggio dei materiali inquinanti presenti nelle acque dell’Arcipelago sono integrate dall'avvistamento dei cetacei, dalla  pratica quotidiana della riduzione degli sprechi che la vita di bordo comporta, dalla possibilità di spostarsi utilizzando soltanto il vento. 

CIRCOLO: L’A.S.D. Diversamente Marinai è stata fondata nel 2011 ed ha come obiettivo principale quello di rendere accessibile il mondo della vela e della navigazione a tutti, integrando le marginalità sociali e le disabilità. Nel corso di questi anni ha promosso diverse iniziative, collaborando con la Regione Toscana ed il Progetto GiovaniSì con associazioni locali e nazionali. Le rotte percorse dalle nostre imbarcazioni hanno solcato l’Arcipelago Toscano portando nei porti equipaggi misti, progetti scolastici e percorsi di trekking ambientale.

LUOGO: L'Isola del Giglio, situata nell'arcipelago della Toscana di fronte al Monte Argentario, è davvero una perla tutta da scoprire. Giglio offre agli appassionati del mare bellissime spiagge e insenature. Le sue limpidissime acque sono un affascinante mondo subacqueo per gli amanti delle immersioni e il suo territorio (per il 90% ancora selvaggio) invita ad avventurarsi per i percorsi pedonali. Dinnanzi al promontorio di Monte Argentario, sorge la più meridionale delle isole dell'arcipelago toscano: l'isola di Giannutri con la sua forma inconfondibile di una mezzaluna. Dista 12 miglia marine dall' Isola del Giglio, il suo punto più elevato è Monte Mario 83 metri sul livello del mare; ha una superficie di 260 ettari e uno sviluppo costiero di 11 chilometri. La bassa macchia mediterranea regna ancora con i suoi colori e profumi. Meta di passo per una miriade di uccelli che raggiungono l'Europa per nidificare, è la terra d'elezione per il rondone pallido ed è colonizzata sulle coste dai numerosi gabbiani reali. La natura calcarea e l'eccezionale trasparenza dell'acqua, la straordinaria diversità biologica e la presenza di relitti, rendono unici questi fondali, richiamando ogni anno migliaia di subacquei. Certamente fu abitata già nella preistoria (come testimoniano i numerosi ritrovamenti di armi e utensili) e fu frequentata da Etruschi e Romani. Giacciono ancora sui fondali di questo tratto di mare alcuni relitti di navi mercantili, testimoni di antichi traffici marittimi.

Didattica della vela e la vita di bordo

L’attività prevede un corso di secondo livello di navigazione a vela e conduzione di un’imbarcazione, attraverso la sperimentazione diretta delle nozioni acquisite.

Pulizia delle spiagge accessibili solo dal mare

Il progetto prevede la pulizia delle spiagge inaccessibili via terra, attraverso la raccolta dei rifiuti di materiale inquinante. 

Avvistamento cetacei

Il monitoraggio di delfini e balene è da anni di interesse centrale per la salvaguardia delle specie mediterranee che vivono nelle acque dell’Arcipelago.

Monitoraggio dell’inquinamento del mare

I partecipanti saranno impegnati nel monitoraggio di alcune zone costiere particolarmente inquinate da oggetti galleggianti e riporteranno dati e riflessioni su appositi moduli convenzionati con Legambiente, fornendo dati che potranno essere utilizzati per scopi scientifici.


ATTIVITA’ FORMATIVE: 

Conoscenza della biodiversità della Zona umida di Mola (Porto Azzurro, LI) e della zona sotto tutela delle Dune di Lacona (Capoliveri, LI) tramite attività didattiche realizzate in collaborazione con il Circolo Legambiente dell'Arcipelago Toscano.

ALLOGGIO:  partecipanti saranno imbarcati su due cabinati a vela della lunghezza di 12-14 m, divisi in due gruppi da n. 8 o 6 persone.

DATA FINE: 14 / 8 / 2016

DESCRIPTION: PARTNER DESCRIPTION: The history of Open Houses dates back to the mid-1980s, when a group of young people began to restore actual disused village churches. The focus lies on restoration and public use of historical monuments, which allows a long-lasting and effective recovery of the buildings. Currently Open Houses has several historic buildings in its care. All of them are attractive ensembles which display centuries of history. But most of them stood vacant for a very long time and suffered serious structural damage. WORK DESCRIPTION: Restoration of the roof of the Youth Accommodation House The roofing of Rathewalde Youth Accommodation Houses is by now 50 years old and has to be renewed. Under the professional guidance of a carpenter the participants of the Building Weeks will remove the old roofing, repair the roof construction and afterwards reroof the house. Although the roofing - bituminous sheeting – is not a traditional one the works will be interesting because the combination of the different roof constructions of the different parts of the house dating back to different times will generate the need to find intelligent detail solutions. Because it will be sometimes not possible that the whole group will work on the roof at the same time the other volunteers will carry out in these times small renovation works at the house and on the ground. They will renew fences as well as painting doors and windows of the Youth Accommodation House. ACCOMODATION AND FOOD: shared rooms with 4-6 beds, limited warm shower and toilet LOCATION AND LEISURE: Rathewalde Youth Accommodation House is situated at the traditional health resort Rathewalde in Saxony. The building is located at the end of the village, directly at the border of the National Park Sächsische Schweiz (Saxon Switzerland). The mountains are famous for their typical formations of sandstone with lots of small caves and overwhelming views from the tops of the mountains. The National Park offers various possibilities of hiking and climbing tours of different levels as well as cultural events like theatre performances at the open air theatre “Felsenbühne Rathen” (cliff stage Rathen). The house was originally built around 1880, in the following decades it had been extended step by step. When Open Houses overtook the responsibility for the house it was partly in a really bad condition; during the past years countless volunteers restored and renovated the building. The house is surrounded by a beautiful garden with old rhododendrons. From the garden there is a fascinating view into the neighbouring valley and on rock formations.

PROGETTO: Legambiente Sernaglia ha preso in concessione dall'Intendenza di Finanza di Treviso un'area demaniale di 35 ettari nel cuore delle Fontane Bianche di Sernaglia dove ha allestito il percorso ecologico "Fontane Bianche" che cura e gestisce dal 1991. L'area ha bisogno di una costante manutenzione  soprattutto per ciò che riguarda le passerelle sui corsi d'acqua, il controllo delle piante invasive, il mantenimento in buono stato dei sentieri percorribili.

CIRCOLO: Istituito nel 1988, il circolo si è fin da subito impegnato nella sensibilizzazione alla raccolta differenziata.

Dal 1989 organizza con le scuole primarie la "Festa degli Alberi", dal 1998 la festa degli aquiloni.

In collaborazione con il Comune di Sernaglia, Legambiente ha realizzato e gestisce il Centro di Educazione Ambientale "Media Piave". Il CEA e il percorso delle "Fontane Bianche" sono meta ogni anno di migliaia di studenti guidati dagli esperti del circolo.

Da numerosi anni il circolo ospita volontari dei campi di lavoro internazionali o nazionali e volontari SVE.

LUOGO: Fontane Bianche di Sernaglia si trova nella regione del Quartier di Piave, in provincia di Treviso, nella pianura compresa tra le Prealpi e la collina del Montello. L'area delle Fontane Bianche è un sito di rilevanza europea (area ZPS).

Fontigo, luogo dell'alloggio (frazione di Sernaglia della Battaglia), si trova a circa 180 m sul livello del mare; siamo quindi in Pianura Padana, a qualche chilometro dalle colline trevigiane e a circa un chilometro dal fiume Piave. Sernaglia della Battaglia è un paese ricco di storia, cultura e natura. Ogni piccolo paesino della zona è ricco di ricordi e monumenti storici (specialmente relativi alla Grande Guerra); ci sono inoltre numerose testimonianze romane e dell'età della pietra. 

LAVORO: I volontari saranno impegnati in interventi di manutenzione dell'area d'entrata delle Fontane Bianche. Tra i lavori più importanti c'è la sistemazione di alcune passerelle e dei sentieri; a questo lavoro principale si aggiungeranno lavori di manutenzione ordinaria dell'intera area, come lo sfalcio dei sentieri, il recupero dei rifiuti, la pulizia della tabellonistica, il controllo delle piante invasive. 

Ci si sposterà in bici verso il luogo di lavoro (3 km dall'abitazione).

ALLOGGIO: La sistemazione sarà presso una casa privata. 

REQUISITI RICHIESTI: è necessario saper andare in bicicletta

DATA INIZIO: 1 / 8 / 2016
DATA FINE: 8 / 8 / 2016

PROGETTO: Promozione e rivalutazione del patrimonio ambientale, culturale, archeologico e gastronomico dei Campi Flegrei. Promuovere il rapporto genitori e figli per condividere il rispetto della natura ma anche della storia e far nascere un senso di appartenenza verso il patrimonio culturale. Promuovere, inoltre, l'importanza del "mangiar bene" e della sua buona influenza sulla salute.  Sottolineare che tutti questi obiettivi possono essere raggiunti anche divertendosi e imparando tutti, anche i più adulti, qualcosa dagli altri.

CIRCOLO: Il circolo Legambiente Pozzuoli lavora in partenariato con i comuni dei Campi Flegrei con i quali condivide assiduamente eventi e azioni sul territorio atte alla sensibilizzazione autoctona della protezione dei patrimoni naturali e storici ivi ubicati. Presente nelle scuole con varie proposte inerenti progetti PON interni e manifestazioni che coinvolgono intra ed extra moenia gli scolari. E’ anche responsabile dell’organizzazione di eventi nella Foresta di Cuma "Silva Gallinaris" in partenariato con associazioni archeologiche ed ambientaliste.

LUOGO: Il lago d’Averno è uno specchio di acque cupe dalla forma ellittica, un lago di origine vulcanica profondo al centro circa 34 metri, che occupa un antico cratere dove gli antichi romani posero l’ingresso agli inferi. Il lago di Averno giace all'interno dell’omonimo cratere vulcanico spento, nato 4.000 anni fa. Il lago d'Averno è il secondo per dimensione, dopo il Fusaro, dei laghi presenti nei Campi Flegrei. Le sue acque sono immote e scure, le ripide pareti che lo circondano sono coperte da boschi mentre quelle a pendenza dolce sono occupate da vigneti a terrazza. In passato si racconta che le acque esalassero acido carbonico e gas che non permettevano la vita agli uccelli: da qui il nome Avernus, dal greco Aornon, luogo senza uccelli. In epoca romana sotto Agrippa il lago fu trasformato in uno dei porti di Cuma, il porto Julius, in aggiunta all'altro preesistente che si trovava sul mare, ove è l'attuale lago di Lucrino. Contemporaneamente alla creazione del nuovo porto furono scavate altre due gallerie: l'una , la Grotta di Cocceio, collegava il porto Julius alla città bassa di Cuma mentre l'altra è rappresentata dalla grotta della Sibilla , scavata nella collina che separa il lago di Averno dal lago di Lucrino. Nulla rimane degli impianti portuali lungo la riva dell'Averno; ad una delle ville aristocratiche che ne presero il posto appartiene la magnifica rovina nota come Tempio di Apollo, che in realtà è una grande sala termale, la flora comprende lecci, salici bianchi, cannucce, salicornie, ginestre, pini marittimi e sparti. La fauna è composta da pesci e rane nello specchio d'acqua, da rettili (biacco e cervone), mammiferi (varie specie di pipistrelli) e uccelli (gabbiano corso, cormorano, martin pescatore, gabbiano corallino moriglione, gabbiano reale e folaga).  Attualmente il sito non risulta bene valorizzato ne dal punto di vista naturalistico ne archeologico si effettuano alcune visite guidate ma c’è una mancanza di un percorso turistico ben definito. Per quanto riguarda la foresta regionale di Cuma, o “SILVA GALLINARIS” invece,  si trova a pochi minuti da Napoli, zona B del Parco Regionale dei Campi Flegrei, un’ampia area sempreverde, culla di antiche civiltà. Passeggiando lungo i sentieri di questa meravigliosa foresta è possibile immergersi in una atmosfera incantata, godendo di meravigliosi panorami e accompagnati dal suono delle onde del mare. Le condizioni in cui si trova la foresta sono buone grazie all’impegno delle associazioni che gestiscono l’area e creano eventi ed iniziative chiamate il Bosco e la Duna , purtroppo quest’importante area naturalistica è poco conosciuta e spesso vi è la necessita di ripulire le aree verdi dai rifiuti versati li da balordi ed incivili. Cuma, la vicina acropoli con il famoso “antro della Sibilla”  dove Enea si recò ad ascoltare i vaticini della Sibilla Cumana, sarà meta di escursione extracampo. 

 “Excisum Euboicae latus ingens rupis in antrum, quo lati ducunt aditus centum, ostia centum, unde ruunt totidem voces, responsa Sibyllae. Ventum erat ad limen, cum uirgo 'poscere fata tempus' ait; 'deus ecce deus.' cui talia fanti ante fores subito non uultus, non color unus, non comptae mansere comae; sed pectus anhelum, et rabie fera corda tument, maiorque videri nec mortale sonans, adflata est numine quando iam propiore dei.”

 (Eneide liber VI) 

LAVORO: Il campo vedrà i volontari impegnati nella pulizia di siti di importanza culturale e ambientale, manutenzione aree circostanti verdi, ricerche naturalistiche su flora e fauna, l’ ideazione di nuovo materiale promozionale anche con l’uso del riciclo, momenti di gioco e laboratori creativi volti all'interesse costruttivo dei bambini e del rapporto con i genitori sul tema del mito e della tradizione orale. Prove pratiche e laboratori di agricoltura, manutenzione dell'orto all’interno del lago.  Redazione di schede digitali e cartacee adatte al monitoraggio turistico nelle aree di interesse e una schedatura anche dei siti di interesse archeologico. Attività di riciclo creativo anche per la relazione, da parte dei bambini, dei contenitori utili a fare la differenziata nel luogo del campo. 

Inoltre, nei periodi di relax, sarà possibile scegliere tra visite tra monumenti di interesse archeologico, paesaggistico o eno-gastronomico  presso i Campi Flegrei, Napoli o le vicine isole di Ischia, Procida e Capri; si potrà visitare Baia,  la famosa “città sommersa” con immersioni in snorkeling e, per i brevettati, con le bombole. Inoltre si organizzeranno cene ed eventi serali; momenti di balneazione presso i vicino ed attrezzatissimo “Lido Giardino Beach resort & SPA,  animazione e relax presso il luogo di soggiorno con laboratori di Agricoltura, archeologici. Le attività extracampo sono a pagamento ed acquistabili in sito, a costi scontati per i volontari. 

ATTIVITA’ FORMATIVE: i volontari parteciperanno ad attività formative sulle tematiche dell’alimentazione, sulla realizzazione degli orti e sull’agricoltura. Inoltre vi saranno lezioni frontali sulla definizione, importanza e valorizzazione del patrimonio ambientale, archeologico e enogastronomico e sui siti di interesse del campo. Lezioni sul “mito” mezzo della tradizione orale adatto a conoscere davvero il territorio come veniva visto e vissuto dagli antichi.

ALLOGGIO: in tende da 30 mq, il sito ospitante è quello del “giardino dell’orco” grande fondo terriero che insiste dentro il cratere dell’Averno, adibito a coltivazione biologica a Km 0, con limonaie , agrumeti, vigneti e apicoltura. Nello stesso si possono frequentare laboratori di orto botanica.  

REQUISITI RICHIESTI: Buona attitudine a camminare e alla vita di campeggio in tenda.

Project summary: In a very beautiful environment at the feet of the Alps, volunteers will work for the nature’s safeguard in the Regional Park Campo dei Fiori.

Description

Project: Legambiente has been collaborating with the natural park Campo dei fiori for many years, with volunteers programs and environmental education. The Park is a beautiful woods area really important for all the region as a source of biodiversity.

The project’s aim is the preservation and the improvement of an area, called “villaggio Cagnola”, important to promote “green” tourism in the park.

Legambiente local group: Legambiente Varese Onlus, besides giving contributions to main Legambiente national campaigns, cares about the environment of the district of Varese since the eighties.  Legambiente Varese coordinates 14 local groups of Legambiente volunteers and is the connection between local, regional and national offices of the association.  It carries out several activities such as the management of natural areas, the organization of workcamps,  environmental education addressed to youngest generations and promotion of environmentally friendly lifestyles.

Work: Volunteers will work mainly in “Villaggio Cagnola”, that is a place of great historical and natural importance used by the Park to create a centre for environmental education and nature's preservation. The work will be: footpaths cleaning and maintenance, removing weeds from grassland at the top of the mountains. 

We'll use bicycles for moving between camp and working place.

We'll work  with local volunteers and citizens on Saturday and Sundays

Study part: Part of the time will be dedicated to study the natural characteristic of the Park  specially focused on biodiversity and on the protection of water springs. 

Accommodation and food: Volunteers will be hosted in a common room with camp-beds and they'll use a camp-kitchen. There will be an environmental friendly diet with local products and little meat.

Location and leisure: The natural Park “Campo Dei Fiori” overlooks the hills of the Province of Varese and the Po Plain. In the area there are several interesting natural and  historical  sites. "http://www.parcocampodeifiori.it".

The particular geographical location and the geological features favored the presence of a various vegetation, with chestnut tree and beech tree woods, typical fora of the rocky areas, marshy and peaty zones rich in wildlife. Brinzio is a little village (about 880 inhabitants) in the center of the Park.

Specific Requirements: Volunteers need good skills in bicycle riding

The project : The castle of the Avant-garde, presents an interesting plan, with still massive square towers, many internal arrangements, but it is suprising because of the fragility of his walls. The long-term objective is to highlight this castle by integrating a discovery route, one viewpoint indicator and a space scenography.

Works : The workcamp consists in the consolidation of the walls and the resumption of a part of the rampart between the towers. The middle term objective is to resume this whole rampart. It is for use as bottom and as set to the project of open-air theater aspired by Pompey's City hall.

Activities : On your arrival, leaders will propose several activities; your ideas are welcomed and everything can be discussed. So be imaginative, the workcamp is a place for having fun! We don’t expect you to do activities on your own, you will live an experience in a group !

Accomodation : In a tent, close to the site.

DESCRIPTION: PARTNER DESCRIPTION: Municipality of Ierapetra – Department of Environment & Culrural Association of Stavrochori & Koutsouras villages. Local partners believe that international volunteers are an incentive to the whole local community to get involved in the solution of local problems. Last year, because of the International workcamp, a very vast network of local people has been mobilised and have been involved in all phases of the camp life. This involvement had a positive impact not only in terms of work but also in the community cohesion and initiated an interesting dynamic. WORK DESCRIPTION: Volunteers will be involved in forestry work. In cooperation with local environmental groups and villagers they will a) prune the trees in the forest area of Koutsouras b) open a fire protection zone c) prepare the soil for the planting activities planned for next Autumn and finally d) help in the organisation and off course participate in the Stavrochori village traditional Cretan party of the 15th of August. Volunteers will work 5 hours per day, 6 days per week. We might need to adapt the daily schedule (e.g start working at 6 in the morning or work in the morning and afternoon) in order to avoid the hottest hours of the day. Any changes in the working schedule and/or type of work will be discussed and decided as a group and in close cooperation with the local host. The Forest Park of Apigania is in need of care in order to continue developing in a healthy way after the disastrous fires of the past. ACCOMODATION AND FOOD: Volunteers will be hosted in a school near Koutsouras village by the seaside. Volunteers are expected to sleep on the floor on mattress provided by the local host. Showers and warm water as well as all basic facilities are provided. Volunteers will be given all necessary equipment and materials from the local host and they will prepare their meals in shifts. We cook using local products and donated row or cooked supplies and we adapt our menu to the supplies we have. LOCATION AND LEISURE: The Forest Park of Apigania in Ierapetra (5000 acres) consists of the Koutsoura woods (100 acres), with infrastructure for miscellaneous educational and leisure activities and an afforested land of 300 acres, where the creation of a Botanical Garden of Apigania is planned, with species of Cretan and Mediterranean flora. In the broader region of 5000 acres nature trails can be designed (which include The Butterflies’ Gorge that ends up to a small cascade), climbing fields as well as religious tourism trails (churches, monasteries etc). The region was burnt down in 1993 but then thousands of school children and citizens of the Ierapetra Municipality planted more than 10.000 trees of local Cretan flora. Last year two international workcamps have been hosted in the area and volunteers have pruned more than 8000 trees (pine trees, cypresses, locust trees, cedars and others) as a fire protection and supporting healthy growth measure. Oreino village on Thripti mountain is surrounded by walnut, pine and plane trees. In the area there are also many fresh water springs. Oreino is at the top end of the Canyon while the Kourtouras forest and entrance of the Gorge is 4 hours walk south. Oreino, is a very small mountainous village with very friendly and hospitable community. The school is next to the see side, so swimming on a daily base is one of the main free time activities. Ierapetra is a town in the south east of Crete Island. The forest park of Apigania where the camp will take place is 30 min by car way from Ierapetra. Visits and environmental education excursions to the most important sites of the area are going to take place, including an excursion to the island of Chrysi, one of the most important environmental protected areas of Greece. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to visit and participate in some of the cultural events organised in different parts of the area. Camp-leaders will organise free time activities in co-operation with the volunteers and the local partner. Host organization does not cover free time activities expenses. REQUIREMENTS: The work will be physically demanding mainly because of the weather conditions (sun, high temperatures and wind). The best travel option would be to arrive in Heraklion before 12:00pm and depart from Heraklion after 12:00pm. This workcamp is accessible to A4A volunteers (no wheelchair). NOTES: SUMMARY: An important environmental workcamp will take place in the Greek Island of Crete, in collaboration with the Municipality of Ierapetra and local cultural associations and local volunteers. The Forest Park of Apigania is in need of care in order to continue developing in a healthy way after the disastrous fires of the past.

Salvaguardia dell’ambiente costiero a Marina di Camerota

PAESE: ITALIA
CONTRIBUTO: 220
TARGET: Adulti
DATA INIZIO: 1 / 8 / 2016
DATA FINE: 10 / 8 / 2016

PROGETTO: Marina di Camerota da anni ha intrapreso un percorso di valorizzazione del proprio patrimonio storico, naturalistico e ambientale, attraverso scelte spesso coraggiose, che si sono rivelate utili ed efficaci.  Accanto alla promozione di un turismo sostenibile, legato alla bellezza dei luoghi, alle tradizioni locali, alla cultura eno-gastronomica (fortemente indirizzata verso la riscoperta della dieta mediterranea), è stato fatto un importante lavoro sulla raccolta differenziata, sulla gestione delle acque reflue e sulla promozione culturale. Questo forte impegno è stato premiato nel 2015 con le 5 Vele, il massimo riconoscimento che Legambiente e Touring Club Italiano assegnano alle eccellenze balneari italiane (nel 2015 erano 15 le località premiate). 

LAVORO: I volontari saranno impegnati in una serie di attività finalizzate alla tutela e salvaguardia del territorio di Camerota, e iniziative di informazione e sensibilizzazione indirizzate a turisti e cittadini verso una corretta fruizione dell’ambiente. In particolare, con l'ausilio di un banchetto informativo presente in prossimità della Spiaggia del Cefalo e della retrostante Pineta di Sant'Iconio, i volontari forniranno informazioni dettagliate circa la rilevanza ambientale dell'area e i comportamenti indispensabili per salvaguardare l'ambiente costiero. Nella stessa pineta i volontari installeranno pannelli esplicativi e realizzeranno percorsi per passeggiate. Inoltre saranno impegnati in attività di supporto nella realizzazione di eventi culturali organizzati dall'amministrazione di Camerota.

LUOGO: Famosa per la produzione artigianale di anfore e di corde della pesca, questo piccolo centro situato nel basso Cilento, si trova al limite del Golfo di Policastro. Camerota è meta di turisti diretti soprattutto sulla costa nota per gli approdi, dove si trova Marina di Camerota con splendide spiagge affiancate da torri e grotte sommerse ed emerse e la stazione balneare con il porto. Tra le grotte più famose che caratterizzano questa località, c’è la grotta della Cala, dove sono stati rivenuti resti umani preistorici, e la grotta sepolcrale dove invece venivano sepolti i defunti. Per chi è appassionato di speleologia, a Marina di Camerota si trova l’Ecomuseo Virtuale Paleolitico che permette di esplorare, grazie alle moderne tecnologie, il territorio costiero durante il periodo della preistoria. Finalmente, quest’anno, è stata tolta l’enorme gru per l’alaggio delle barche che campeggiava sul porticciolo rovinando lo skyline del borgo marinaro.

ALLOGGIO: il gruppo di volontari sarà ospitato in una scuola elementare, fornita di brandine e materassi.

REQUISITI RICHIESTI: attitudine alle relazioni e a parlare con le persone.

PROGETTO: 

Da oltre 15 anni il circolo Legambiente della Carnia organizza una forma alternativa di vacanza che ha come meta una delle aree meno note del nostro Bel Paese. Si tratta di un territorio di “confine” sotto molti punti di vista. Chi ha potuto visitare questi luoghi ha così scoperto una realtà sorprendente, fatta di un’eccezionale biodiversità naturale, di paesaggi sempre diversi, di storia, tradizioni e cultura davvero unici. Coinvolti nel progetto sono alcune amministrazioni comunali, associazioni ed enti parco che, attraverso il ripristino e la manutenzione di vecchi sentieri e di siti di interesse storico ed archeologico, sono riusciti a rendere più qualificati l’ambiente e la loro offerta turistica.


OBIETTIVO:

Da un lato ci si propone di far conoscere una parte delle Alpi Orientali, ricca di storia e di biodiversità, valorizzando le sue peculiarità e dando risalto ad iniziative di sviluppo turistico sostenibile, come dimostra l’esperienza degli “alberghi diffusi”, che è basata sul recupero delle vecchie case non più abitate in seguito all’emigrazione. Dall’altro si intende ripristinare e sistemare una importante rete di percorsi di montagna che rischiava di scomparire in seguito all’abbandono delle attività agricole tradizionali.


CIRCOLO: 

Il circolo Legambiente della Carnia è attivo dalla fine degli anni Ottanta. Il suo impegno principale è rivolto alla difesa del territorio e del paesaggio, che si è concretizzato, ad esempio, nelle battaglie contro la realizzazione di discariche in siti a rischio idrogeologico e contro assurdi progetti di autostrade ed elettrodotti che avrebbero un impatto devastante sull’ambiente. Tra le altre problematiche affrontate ci sono: la difesa dei corsi d’acqua, interessati da sconsiderati prelievi a scopo idroelettrico e la lotta contro la cementificazione del territorio, cui si contrappongono progetti di turismo sostenibile e rispettoso della tradizione e dei luoghi.


LUOGO: 

Rigolato si trova nell’Alta Valle del Degano, uno dei principali affluenti del Fiume Tagliamento, in Carnia, la regione montuosa della Provincia di Udine che confina con il Cadore e l’Austria. Si tratta di un territorio ricco di storia, tradizioni e cultura, che, per il particolare clima, si caratterizza d’estate con una vegetazione lussureggiante che la rende il luogo ideale per chi cerca la tranquillità ed il fresco. Rigolato si trova in una bella posizione, ad un’altitudine di circa 750 m.slm, ed è circondata da splendidi boschi di faggio e di conifere.  


LAVORO: 

I volontari, utilizzando attrezzi tradizionali e pratici tronca-rami, saranno impegnati in primo luogo nella manutenzione di alcuni sentieri facenti parte di una rete che collega il capoluogo con le altre frazioni. Un secondo impegno riguarderà la bonifica di piccole aree degradate dall’abbandono di rifiuti.



ATTIVITA' FORMATIVE: 

Uno degli obiettivi che il nostro circolo si è posto è quello di far conoscere ai volontari il territorio, guidandoli nella lettura di alcune problematiche ambientali e sociali. Oltre al lavoro nei boschi per recuperare e sistemare vecchi sentieri, ci sarà così spazio per apprezzare le bellezze naturali della zona e per riflettere sull’utilizzo di una delle poche risorse di questi territori – l’acqua – che è stata sottratta in modo indiscriminato ai fiumi e ai torrenti per la produzione di energia elettrica. Verranno inoltre presentate alcune delle esperienze che hanno segnato la storia di questa parte delle Alpi: dalle vicende del primo conflitto mondiale, agli ideali ereditati dalla repubblica partigiana, alla esemplare ricostruzione seguita ai terremoti che colpirono il Friuli esattamente 40 anni fa (significativa, in questo senso, sarà la visita al Museo e al borgo medievale di Venzone).


ALLOGGIO:

La ex Canonica, ora di proprietà comunale, è un vecchio edificio un po’ spartano, ma dotato comunque di tutto l’occorrente per assicurare un soggiorno confortevole e dignitoso.


REQUISITI RICHIESTI: 

Data anche l'intenzione di effettuare alcune escursioni guidate in montagna, attorno ai 2000 metri di altitudine, è opportuno un discreto allenamento e la capacità di percorrere con sicurezza terreni sconnessi.

The station takes care of growing flowers and edible plants, trees for the city s green areas and the educational school gardens of Reykjavik. The station aims at maintaining Icelandic species and to increase those who have adapted well to the Icelandic climate. The station also tries to experiment with new species to increase variety and quality of plants that are grown in the gardens and recreational areas of the city.SEEDS volunteers will be doing general garden work in the station, attending the flowers, trees and other plants and clearing out weed. Part of the work may take place in green houses. The work can be repetitive as general gardening tasks tend to be. The project starts early every week day, working hours are from 8:00 - 15:30, so volunteers have to be motivated to work early in the morning, but they will have more free time in the afternoon. ACCOMODATION AND FOOD: SEEDS volunteers will stay in an equipped house that is situated in the middle of the gardening station about 4 kilometres from the city centre.

Volunteers will receive food supplies and be in charge of the cooking and cleaning.Do not forget some traditional/typical food from your home country for the international evening. LOCATION AND LEISURE: The population of Iceland s capital Reykjavik is over 200,000 including the metropolitan area, so two thirds of Iceland s inhabitants live here. It is a dynamic, modern city which lives in harmony with beautiful nature, using renewable energy sources - geothermal power and glacial rivers. The world s northernmost capital bridges the Atlantic, between Europe and North America. Reykjavik is spread across a peninsula with a panoramic view of the mountains and the Atlantic Ocean on almost all sides.Visitors to Reykjavik experience easily the pure energy at the heart of Iceland s capital city -whether from the boiling thermal energy underground, the natural green energy within the city and around it, or the lively culture and fun-filled nightlife. The location of the camp is close to the geo-thermal beach Nautholsvik, as well as the protected natural area of Ellioaardalur which has wild berries, salmon fishing, semi-wild rabbits and a waterfall all within the city limits.In the area closer than 100 Km from Reykjavik, there are several spectacular waterfalls, geysers, impressive coastline and the well-known geothermal Blue Lagoon spa to visit. REQUIREMENTS: Volunteers in this camp will have a free pass to one of the largest swimming pools in Iceland, situated some 3km from the camp. Excursions (Blue Lagoon, Golden Circle, South shore, etc) can be arranged at discount fares.Volunteers have to bring good working shoes and clothes, even though summer is coming, it might still be cold and hats and gloves might be necessary.

Background/Project: Okhaldhunga, District of the Himalayas - This small paradise on earth is close to Everest Region.  It is located in Sagarmatha zone in the North-East part of Nepal. It is one of the beautiful places of Nepal if Okhaldhunga is viewed with sacred vision. It has numerous sights which are fascinating. VIN’s Project site (Taluwa VDC, Bhadaure VDC and Thulachhap VDC) is on South-East part from the district headquarters, Okhaldhunga. From Kathmandu, the short bus route is about 250 km which is a rough trip that takes one day and takes one day. VIN has started to work at Okhaldhunga recently. VIN implements integrated approach for community development. 

Because of the geographical situation, it has limited developmental activities and facilities. Unlike Kathmandu, Okhaldhunga has numbers of illiterate people. Okhaldhunga lacks proper education facility. Due to Lack of education facilities, young people move from Okhaldhunga to cities like Kathmandu or fly abroad to secure proper education. There are schools but they don’t have standard education due to which they face comparative disadvantage in their academic and professional career. The existing education standard of Okhaldhunga is not good and compatible with the other community.

According to VIN’s baseline survey 2012, there are only 91.56% children who have been attending school regularly, but 1.44% children are not regular in school. Similarly, 10.42% students dropout of the school. There are 2.99% families which are well aware about child rights and 20.69% families know a fair amount about child rights. But, 76.30% families know very little about child rights. Most children who drop out are involved in household work, field/farm work, households ploughing, labour in agriculture, collect grass/firewood, graze to cattle etc. They do these all because there is no good infrastructure, child friendly classes and teaching in the schools. 

Workcamps will be organized with the cooperation of local community schools for community development, education and working together with local teachers/children/ villages in community development projects. Most of the schools lack basic infrastructure like school building, education material, playground and drinking water. Volunteers can make a big difference in the daily lives of these children by providing the necessities listed above and educating through fun and creative ways.

The workcamp will also involve teaching children from poor and marginalized community in the formal and non-formal schools about Basic English and Mathematics, Health and Hygiene, and Environmental protection through creative learning methods like art, music, games etc. There will also be house visits and meetings with local people as part of inter-cultural learning and to give awareness on health and hygiene. In addition, volunteers also will get a chance to take part in simple renovation work at local schools and engage in activities like painting, tree plantation, protecting from landslides etc. As part of the cultural exchange, volunteers will witness and participate in the available cultural programs with local community.

Multipurpose farming project

PAESE: NEPAL
CONTRIBUTO: 120 Euro
TARGET: Adulti
DATA INIZIO: 4 / 8 / 2016
DATA FINE: 18 / 8 / 2016

Project Background: Nepal is an agricultural country. About 80% of the people’s occupation is agriculture. Trade is also mainly of agricultural products. Agriculture provides raw materials for the industries. With the help of good manure, seeds, equipment and irrigation the growth of crops is increased in large quantity. Agriculture is known as the backbone of economy of Nepal. Agriculture occupation consists of three types: food crops, cash crops and mixed crops. Beside this, there are Livestock, Horticulture and Fishery. 

VIN’s Multi-Purpose Farm (MPF) concept is based on low-external inputs and sustainable farming practices, which allow farmers to integrate different technical elements into the MPF system. It will support to produce crops for both, home consumption and cash income generation. Adopting diversified agricultural activities, mono-cropping (rice or maize or wheat or millet) fields converts into integrated farms, which included fish ponds, fruit trees, cash crops, vegetable gardens and domestic animal husbandry. 

It is a five-year plan in Taluwa community, and is in partnership with local youths, which we aim to develop as a teaching farm to the villagers. Modern technologies will be used and it will be developed and become a complete Multi –purpose farm in five years. Modern and proved agricultural techniques will be adapted to the particular situation of the project site and specific farm layouts, species composition, cropping patterns and cultivation techniques will be introduced and monitored following the technical advice of agricultural technicians.  

In Nepal agriculture is the main source of income of the people. However farmers are unaware about modern technology and multiple farms. A group of youth and women are migrating to other countries for labour. There is a big force of unemployed youth in the country. The main aim of the multiple farming is to provide opportunity to youth to get involved into the project. It will enhance the entrepreneurship skills among youth and women on agriculture.

PROGETTO: Legambiente ValPellice ha avviato il progetto “SIC est Val Pellice” per acquisire dati floristici e faunistici sul SIC fluviale (torrente alpino, tratto di media quota) IT1110033 “Stazioni di Myricaria germanica”. I dati raccolti serviranno per promuovere la gestione del SIC, sia aggiornando la bozza di Piano di Gestione elaborata dagli Enti Locali nel 2005 (e non ancora divenuta un Piano cogente), sia integrando la richiesta di ampliamento del SIC avanzata da Legambiente Val Pellice. I rilievi eseguiti saranno inoltre impiegati per valutare le condizioni ambientali del SIC a seguito di importanti fenomeni alluvionali susseguitisi negli ultimi 10 anni.

Infine il campo prevede di fornire supporto all’attività di due eccellenze naturalistiche del territorio: il Giardino Botanico “Peyronel” (area di elevatissima biodiversità floristica ai 2400m di quota del Colle Barant a Bobbio Pellice) e il Museo di Scienze Naturali di Pinerolo (noto per una delle più importanti collezioni micologiche d’Italia).

CIRCOLO: Il Circolo Legambiente Val Pellice è attivo sul territorio fin dagli anni ’90. Come circolo di montagna persegue non solo la difesa dell’ambiente (gestione del paesaggio, delle acque, della mobilità e delle biomasse forestali), ma anche la promozione di una nuova cultura di tutela e promozione del patrimonio natura, nonché di una fruizione turistica che coniughi riscontri economici, valorizzazione dei territori e tutela ambientale.

Legambiente ValPellice da alcuni anni sostiene una importante iniziativa per l’ampliamento del SIC “Stazioni di Myricaria germanica”, mirata a tutelare il tratto di fondovalle del torrente Pellice più conservato sotto il profilo naturalistico. I dati naturalistici aggiornati raccolti nei campi consentiranno di accelerare e chiudere tale percorso. 

LUOGO: La Val Pellice è la valle più a sud della provincia di Torino, al confine con la Francia e la provincia di Cuneo. E’ nota per essere stata terra di lotta per le libertà religiose ed è tutt’oggi il principale centro della Chiesa Valdese. Si tratta di una valle breve, che in circa 30km converge dalla pianura verso il massiccio del Monviso, con numerose cime che superano i 3000m. I campi si svolgeranno nel SIC Stazioni di M. germanica, in aree di greto e prative poco antropizzate, lungo il torrente Pellice tra 550 e 750 metri di quota. Brevi attività sono previste ai 2400m del Giardino Botanico “Peyronel” nel SIC Oasi del Prà Barant (esteso SIC alpino, caratterizzato da numerosi endemismi ed elevata biodiversità) e nel museo naturalistico di Pinerolo. 

LAVORO: I volontari saranno impegnati in una campagna di monitoraggio e mappatura della specie M. germanica (tamerice di fiume) all’interno del SIC e delle aree di ampliamento. Il monitoraggio sarà inoltre esteso ad altre specie inserite in Direttiva Habitat, in particolar modo: lepidotteri, specie vegetali legati alla conduzione tradizionale dei prati perifluviali, fauna omeoterma e fauna ittica.

Come attività secondarie (2-4 giornate/campo) sono previste: 

- Attività di allestimento del giardino botanico Peyronel per le visite estive (posa di cartellini identificativi, manutenzione sentieri e staccionate, cura dei passaggi e degli abbeveratoi per il bestiame)

- Attività di allestimento della sezione didattica del Museo di Scienze Naturali di Pinerolo.

ATTIVITA’ FORMATIVE: I volontari seguiranno brevi seminari sulle specie da censire tenuti dai referenti scientifici del progetto (ecologi, botanici, faunisti, entomologi) e dai membri dell’Associazione Botanica Alpi Cozie (ideatrice del giardino Peyronel) e con l’Associazione Naturalistica Pinerolese (gestrice del Museo SN Pinerolo). Sono previste alcune attività in collaborazione con università italiane ed estere. 

ALLOGGIO: Struttura foresteria polisportiva (in alternativa: scuola elementare). 

REQUISITI RICHIESTI: Interesse per le tematiche naturalistiche (la formazione avverrà comunque in loco). Predisposizione per il lavoro in ambienti naturali (sole, vento, insetti, erba alta). Buona attitudine e allenamento nel camminare (spostamenti giornalieri di alcuni km; salita al giardino botanico con 1400m di dislivello).

Alla scoperta della biodiversità. I viaggi della bellezza in barca a vela

PAESE: ITALIA
CONTRIBUTO: 840
TARGET: Famiglie
DATA INIZIO: 7 / 8 / 2016
DATA FINE: 14 / 8 / 2016

PROGETTO: 

Un campo di volontariato in barca a vela è un modo eccezionale di promuovere la tutela del territorio marino e, contemporaneamente, sviluppare il senso della bellezza che la vita a bordo di un imbarcazione può trasmettere. Non ci può essere vera salvaguardia dell’ambiente senza la capacità di apprezzare il paesaggio naturale. 

Durante il campo si realizzeranno interventi concreti per migliorare la qualità ambientale, mostrando all’equipaggio come vivere sul mare e con il mare sia un’esperienza unica e indimenticabile. 

CIRCOLO: 

L’A.S.D. Diversamente Marinai è stata fondata nel 2011 ed ha come obiettivo principale quello di rendere accessibile il mondo della vela e della navigazione a tutti, integrando le marginalità sociali e le disabilità. Nel corso di questi anni ha promosso diverse iniziative, collaborando con la Regione Toscana ed il Progetto GiovaniSì. Le rotte percorse dalle nostre imbarcazioni hanno solcato l’Arcipelago Toscano portando nei porti equipaggi misti, progetti scolastici e percorsi di trekking ambientale.

LUOGO:  L'isola d'Elba, posta a circa 10 chilometri dalla costa, è la più grande delle isole dell'Arcipelago Toscano, e la terza più grande d'Italia (223 km²).

Insieme alle altre isole (Pianosa, Capraia, Gorgona, Montecristo, Giglio e Giannutri), l’Elba fa parte del Parco Nazionale dell'Arcipelago Toscano, le cui acque rappresentano il più grande Parco marino d’Europa. I suoi fondali sono caratterizzati da un’ampia varietà di habitat. La grande diversità biologica dell’Arcipelago è dovuta, anche, alla diversità delle coste e dei fondali.

LAVORO:

- Pulizia delle spiagge accessibili solo dal mare, attraverso la raccolta dei rifiuti di materiale inquinante;

- Avvistamento cetacei: Il monitoraggio di delfini e balene è da anni di interesse centrale per la salvaguardia delle specie mediterranee che vivono nelle acque dell’Arcipelago.

- Monitoraggio dell’inquinamento marino di alcune zone costiere particolarmente interessate dall’inquinamento da oggetti galleggianti.

ATTIVITA' FORMATIVE:

Verrà affrontato il tema della biodiversità della flora e della fauna dell'Arcipelago Toscano. I partecipanti saranno coinvolti in percorsi formativi sulle caratteristiche del territorio tenuti dai volontari di Legambiente Arcipelago. 

La didattica sarà incentrata sulla vela e la vita di bordo,  prevedendo l’insegnamento delle basi pratico-teoriche della navigazione a vela e della conduzione di un’imbarcazione, attraverso la sperimentazione diretta delle nozioni acquisite


ALLOGGIO: 

Da poppa a prua sarà contenuto il tutto il mondo che ospiterà le avventure dei partecipanti. Le imbarcazioni da 12 a 15 metri sono dotate di spazi comuni, cucine spaziose, cabine e cuccette. 

REQUISITI RICHIESTI: 

Particolare spirito di adattamento in spazi ristretti e amore per il mare.

Per i soggetti disabili si prega di contattarci per verificare la compatibilità tra il tipo di disabilità e i limiti architettonici delle imbarcazioni, con l’obiettivo di rendere possibile il soggiorno.

CONTRIBUTO DI PARTECIPAZIONE:
Il contributo (a cui va aggiunto il contributo per la tessera associativa Legambiente 2016) comprende vitto, alloggio e assicurazione e dipende dalla composizione del nucleo familiare. La partecipazione di fratellini/sorelline che abbiano un’età inferiore ai 5 anni è gratuita.

ULTERIORI INFORMAZIONI

L’imbarcazione salperà dal porto di Porto Azzurro, noi consigliamo di prendere la nave che collega Piombino a Portoferraio dove ci sono autobus che portano a Porto Azzurro. Questa è la migliore soluzione per risparmiare sul costo del traghetto, venire con l’automobile ha un costo abbastanza elevato. A Piombino ci sono parcheggi a pagamento proprio sul porto o parcheggi liberi però più distanti.

DESCRIPTION: PARTNER DESCRIPTION: The local project is called “magic garden”. This former school garden of around three hectares in the city of Leipzig has been disused. In 2007 a local initiative started to revive it and create a place for children of all ages to enjoy nature and play and learn outdoors, be creative and have fun. Individual children from the neighborhood, whole families, groups from kindergartens or primary schools use this offer to run projects, celebrate birthday parties or other events. Today you find there a safe space for city children to play outdoors and to experience and learn about nature. They built a bread oven, a treehouse, wooden huts and areas to stay and have a rest or make a campfire. You can hear the buzzing of bees, enjoy the beauty of flowers and butterflies and smell herbs. WORK DESCRIPTION: You will support the local team building an Indian village with several tepees. This will be the new attraction of the garden. You will first prepare the material, then construct the tepees and other elements and finally set up the village. Other tasks to maintain the magic garden will be added. Please be aware that work can be physically hard in parts and that you will work outside even if it is rainy. In case of longer periods of rain some tasks may be realised in a former circus tent which is part of the magic garden. Please make sure to bring adequate clothes and shoes. On several days you will run activities together with local pupils aged 14-18. So please be also prepared for this exchange and to present your country. ACCOMODATION AND FOOD: The accommodation is basic in tents in one part of the garden. Tents with camping beds will be provided. A small kitchen (and a campfire) is provided for cooking, there are toilets but only outdoor solar showers (!). LOCATION AND LEISURE: Even though the place looks rural and you are doing camping, you will be in the city of Leipzig; the tram stops just in front of the magic garden and you have many opportunities. Leipzig has 560.000 inhabitants and was the centre of the peaceful revolution in Eastern Germany in 1989. Today it is called the “boomtown of the East”, university and industry are growing, many artists live here and you can find plenty of clubs, social initiatives…. At the same time Leipzig is surrounded by small lakes where you can swim, most of them leftovers from open-cast coal mining.

DESCRIPTION: The Clausonne Abbey is situated in the Saix, a small village in the canton of Veynes in the Hautes-Alpes. Today, only the remnants of this 12th century building are found as the abbey was destroyed, burnt, rebuilt and finally used as a farm and school in the 19th century. Clausonne remains however a remarkable site, sharing the beauty of the wildness that surrounds it : situated at 1200m of altitude, in the heart of a vast « circus » of mountains, the abbey became the route point for numerous hikers who visit the Haute vallée of Maraize. Thus, rather than letting the vegetation cover the ruins of Clausonne again, the inhabitants of Saix founded an association 20 years ago in order to highlight this site. Progressively, thanks to numerous international workcamps that have worked there, this place lives again and is currently open from April to October. The workcamps organised at the Clausonne site are received by the hosting centre of the Faï farm, not far from there. The Faï is an extraordinary place, where you will find young people in difficulty, employees in training, professional artists or long term volunteers. We hope that during your stay at the Fai, you will bring your willingness and good humour to bring the spirit of encounter to life and to work together to animate this place. PARTNER DESCRIPTION: WORK DESCRIPTION: In 2016, the action will concern the accessibility of the site and his visibility for hikers. You will highlight the ruins of the abbey's mill and will realize a flooded pasage through the Maraize. You will make a path in the abbey's ruins and discover the technical creation of a calade path. You will participate in the preservation of the carved stone. A final phase will emphasize a former barn from the abbey in which will be set up a technical room. ACCOMODATION AND FOOD: In rooms at the Faï farm LOCATION AND LEISURE: Leisure: Situated in a remarkable natural environment, Clausonne is an exceptional place to discover the pleasures of mountain hiking and life in a rural area, with its local markets and producers.

WORK: Group-focused enmity, social injustice and ecology – what’s the link? Industrial companies have almost always exported their social costs to developing and third-world countries. Because of this, habitats and livelihoods in under-developed nations are destroyed. This, in turn, leads to the suffering population in these countries migrating in the direction of the western industrial nations themselves. As a result, the current existing social injustices arise, as well as the consequent fears of increasing hostility towards migrants and foreigners. In the study part of the camp, we want to critically analyse this distressing development and reflect on our own behave with regards to this topic. In the working part of the camp we will be carrying out maintenance work and extension work on the infrastructure of the education establishment where we’ll be staying. Overall, we will be trying to change our view of the social processes in our society, to discuss alternative ways of dealing with this topic, and to work on the utopian idea of a heterogeneous social area of society. The well located grounds of the Göhrde train station education establishment is a place of learning for socially critical and ecological thoughts and actions.

ACCOMODATION: You’ll be staying in an educational establishment, in a restored, listed train station building. You’ll cook your own meals together.

PROGETTO: Il campo prevede la pulizia di un antico sentiero che collega il paese di Castilenti alla frazione Casabianca. Le attività in programma prevedono il posizionamento di steccionate laddove necessario, cestini, sfalcio erba e cartellonistica. Il tutto è organizzato dal circolo Legambiente Valfino in sinergia con l’amministrazione comunale di Castilenti.

CIRCOLO: Il Circolo Legambiente Valfino esiste da due anni e opera nel territorio bagnato dal fiume Fino. I comuni interessati sono Castilenti, Castiglione M.R., Arsita, Bisenti e Montefino, tutti in provincia di Teramo. L’area è ricca di verde e ci sono molti antichi sentieri che collegano i centri storici alle frazioni. Ci battiamo per la corretta raccolta differenziata, tutela ambientale, turismo lento e sostenibile. Collaboriamo con le scuole del territorio per le campagne di Legambiente e per sensibilizzare sui temi ambientali. La sede operativa del circolo è nel palazzo De Sterlich a Castilenti. 

LUOGO: Il campo è stato individuato in un antico sentiero che collega il centro storico di Castilenti alla frazione Casabianca. Lo scopo è quello di rendere percorribile, sicuro e ben segnalato il percorso di circa tre km che anticamente veniva usato anche con buoi e mezzi agricoli. La strada è in discrete condizioni, ma necessita di staccionate su alcuni punti, sfalcio erba e insegne specifiche. 

LAVORO: I volontari dovranno collaborare per fissare steccionate, sistemare i cartelli che indicano il percorso, sfalciare erba, raccogliere rifiuti. 

ATTIVITA’ FORMATIVE: Faremo visitare la valle del Fino con attenzione alle sue bellezze artistiche e naturalistiche e dei suoi prodotti tipici.

ALLOGGIO: L’alloggio prescelto è l’ostello che è stato creato nell’ex convento dei frati minori di Santa Maria del Colle Uliveto che si trova sempre a Castilenti. La struttura dispone di bagni, docce, camere e cucina attrezzata ed è gestita dal comune di Castilenti. Ai volontari saranno forniti i materiali per operare nel campo di volontariato.

PAESE: ITALIA
CONTRIBUTO: 250
TARGET: Adulti
DATA INIZIO: 10 / 8 / 2016
DATA FINE: 19 / 8 / 2016

PROGETTO: l’isola di Ustica è diventata Area Marina Protetta 30 anni fa; da allora è stato realizzato un importante percorso di conservazione della biodiversità e della tutela del mare. Negli ultimi anni l’amministrazione locale sta dedicando risorse allo sviluppo di un turismo sostenibile e responsabile, puntando quindi sull’uso rispettoso del mare e del territorio da una parte, e sulla valorizzazione del patrimonio culturale e delle piccole economie locali dall’altra. I campi di volontariato che Legambiente realizza quest’estate, in collaborazione con l’AMP e il comune, si inseriscono in questo contesto; gli obiettivi sono di sensibilizzare gli abitanti e i turisti a una fruizione corretta dell'ambiente marino e costiero, e di migliorare l’offerta di turismo sostenibile sull’isola, attraverso la sorveglianza dell’area protetta, il monitoraggio e la pulizia dai rifiuti e la creazione di nuovi percorsi di snorkeling. 

LUOGO: Ustica, la perla nera del Mediterraneo, è una piccola isola di origine vulcanica situata nel Tirreno meridionale, a nord di Palermo e a nord-ovest dalle isole Eolie. E’ considerata il regno dei subacquei, grazie alla sua fauna e flora sottomarina, ineguagliabile patrimonio ambientale salvaguardato dalla Riserva Naturale e Area Marina Protetta lungo tutto il periplo dell’isola. La sua ricchezza naturalistica è data anche dalle coltivazioni locali che ne fanno una terra di pregi gastronomici: lenticchie e ortaggi, vigneti e uliveti sono testimonianza di un uso agricolo del territorio che resiste all’incuria e all’abbandono.

LAVORO: I volontari garantiranno un presidio costante dell’AMP e svolgeranno le seguenti attività: pulizia delle coste dalla presenza di eventuali rifiuti spiaggiati, monitoraggio e catalogazione dei rifiuti raccolti negli specchi d'acqua, individuazione di percorsi snorkeling, presidio dei punti informativi dell'AMP.

ATTIVITA’ FORMATIVE: ai volontari verranno fornite tutte le informazioni necessarie sull’Area Marina Protetta e sulla Marine Strategy, la strategia internazionale per la riduzione dei rifiuti marini.

ALLOGGIO: appartamento privato. 

REQUISITI RICHIESTI: confidenza col mare e buona acquaticità.

DATA FINE: 18 / 8 / 2016

PROGETTO: Swimtrekking significa letteralmente trekking a nuoto: è un modo originale per vivere e sentire l’ambiente, un viaggio in mare con maschera, boccaglio, pinne, muta, portando con sé tutto il necessario per l’escursione in un piccolo scafo in vetroresina da trainare: il barkino. 

L’attività di swimtrekking migliora la propria tecnica individuale nel nuoto, sviluppa l’autocontrollo e la conoscenza di sé e di una serie di tecniche quali l’apnea e il salvamento, studia la flora e la fauna, il moto ondoso, i venti e le correnti, rafforza e accresce le dinamiche del gruppo. 

Attraverso la guida di un istruttore ogni 6 partecipanti, i volontari esploreranno e monitoreranno i fondali marini e i tratti costieri partecipando alla raccolta dati FOCUS Meteo Meduse e recupereranno i rifiuti che saranno poi utilizzati per la realizzazione di opere artistiche. Queste saranno fotografate e poi distrutte, quindi smaltite e, ove possibile, differenziate. I volontari saranno di volta in volta addestrati dai responsabili dell'associazione a riportare - tramite Focus-Meteomeduse o via e-mail - le osservazioni sulla presenza, abbondanza, e identità specifica di meduse rilevate durante le escursioni in mare. Le segnalazioni contribuiscono tuttora ad arricchire il database delle segnalazioni che è ora utilizzato per lo sviluppo di un modello statistico per la previsione delle proliferazioni di meduse nei mari italiani. 

Gli istruttori della ASD Swimtrekking hanno una formazione specifica per guidare le varie fasi di un campo che abbracciano competenze tecniche dello swimtrekking, della biologia marina e dell’ambientalismo, oltre alle fasi di recupero e riciclaggio artistico dei rifiuti.

I volontari affronteranno le seguenti tematiche:

1) Conoscere il mare

2) Flora e fauna del mediterraneo – Focus Meteo Meduse

3) Fotografare in acqua

4) Riciclo artistico dei materiali di rifiuto 

5) Marine and beach litter

6) Nuotare in mare - Conoscenza del nuoto e degli aspetti relativi alla sicurezza in mare e al salvamento, alle situazioni meteo-marine, ai venti, alla forza del moto ondoso, alle correnti

7) Aspetti pratici e teorici dello swimtrekking.


CIRCOLO: La ASD Swimtrekking è una associazione sportiva dilettantistica affiliata alla UISP che da oltre 20 anni organizza il trekking a nuoto in varie località del Mar Mediterraneo e del mondo. 

L’attività dello Swimtrekking nasce con l’intento di esplorare e monitorare l’ambiente marino e si sostanzia nella realizzazione di corsi e stage, sia in piscina che in mare, le cui tematiche spaziano dalla tecnica dello Swimtrekking e dell’allenamento agli aspetti teorici e pratici della sicurezza in mare, della conoscenza della flora e della fauna, della tutela e salvaguardia dell'habitat marino, dello studio e della conoscenza dei venti, delle correnti e delle condizioni meteo-marine esclusivamente in funzione dell’attività stessa che porta. Le attività Swimtrekking coinvolgono bambini, adolescenti, famiglie, adulti e diversamente abili e seguono un progetto ambientale e sociale condotto da un team di educatori e tecnici del settore. 


LUOGO:  L'Asinara è un isola che da una centenaria storia carceraria è passata nel 1997 a Parco Nazionale. Questo isolamento ha provocato da un lato la nascita del fascino e del mistero dell'Isola e dall'altra l'indiretta conservazione di alcune aree integre e vergini, rendendola un patrimonio unico e d’inestimabile valore a livello internazionale. I volontari avranno il compito di contribuire alla tutela ed alla salvaguardia di questo territorio attraverso il lavoro che oltre al monitoraggio delle varie specie marine ed in particolare delle meduse (FOCUS METEO MEDUSE), si occuperà di pulire le spiagge meno accessibili della costa dell’Asinara considerando anche l’impervietà del suo territorio e l’impossibilità di accedervi via terra.


LAVORO: I volontari rimuoveranno i rifiuti dai fondali e da tratti di costa e li trasporteranno sull’isola. Al termine delle attività in acqua si progetteranno e realizzeranno delle opere artistiche, utilizzando solo i materiali recuperati dal mare e dalle coste. Ispirandosi al progetto Waste-land dell’artista brasiliano Vik Muniz, i rifiuti saranno assemblati per riprodurre una o più foto fatte dai volontari che rappresentino il campo. La riproduzione sarà poi fotografata dall’alto. Le opere verranno poi distrutte e smaltite e, ove possibile, differenziate. I volontari si occuperanno inoltre dell’attività di Marine and beach litter indagando sulla quantità e tipologia di rifiuti raccolti sulle spiagge raggiunte durante il campo al fine di contribuire alla Direttiva europea sulla Marine Strategy. Tutte le attività del campo, il lavoro in mare e il lavoro artistico saranno documentate con una macchina fotografica compatta scafandrata messa a disposizione dall’organizzazione insieme a un computer. A fine campo sarà realizzato un video con tutti i contenuti delle attività svolte e consegnato ai partecipanti (se muniti di penna USB). Altro aspetto fondamentale del campo sarà il censimento di specie marine e in particolare delle meduse. l’Associazione ha collaborato al progetto MED-JELLYRISK della ENPI CBCMED (Integrated monitoring of jellyfish outbreaks under anthropogenic and climatic impacts in the mediterranean sea – coastal zones - ) per il 2012 – 2015 http://jellyrisk.eu/it/. Compito della ASD Swimtrekking è stato quello di monitorare la presenza di meduse lungo le zone costiere di tutte le località del mediterraneo in oggetto catalogandone le diverse specie e la quantità. Le attività inerenti il censimento delle meduse restano comunque attive attraverso il Focus Meteo Meduse che ha come partner scientifici: CIESM, Università del Salento, CoNISMa, Vectors, CoCoNet, Perseus, CNR ISMAR, Marevivo, Stazione di biologia marina di Porto Cesareo, Lega Navale Italiana, Museo dell’Ambiente. 


ATTIVITA’ FORMATIVE: I volontari, adeguatamente formati per l’osservazione delle meduse, avranno il compito di censire, catalogare e studiare i comportamenti delle meduse incontrate durante le attività di esplorazione in mare lungo le coste. I volontari seguiranno inoltre le direttive tema del progetto marine and beach litter per la conservazione dell'ambiente naturalistico. 

ALLOGGIO: Ostello di Cala d’Oliva. I partecipanti alloggeranno in 2 camerate spaziose (10 persone a camerata). Al piano degli alloggi sono disponibili i servizi igienici (bagni e docce), la mensa dove saranno serviti i pasti  (colazione, pranzo e cena) e una sala comune. 

REQUISITI RICHIESTI: L’attività dello Swimtrekking si basa sul nuoto. Sarà quindi fondamentale che tutti i volontari sappiano nuotare i due stili principali: lo stile libero e lo stile dorso. Specifichiamo inoltre che non sono assolutamente importanti i tempi di percorrenza e la tecnica individuale ma una discreta capacità di resistenza. Si richiede quindi una certa consuetudine con l’attività sportiva di qualsiasi genere sia pur blanda. Le persone molto sedentarie non sono adatte a questo tipo di esperienza. L’attività di Swimtrekking migliora la propria tecnica individuale nel nuoto, sviluppa l’autocontrollo e la conoscenza di se, fa conoscere una serie di tecniche quali l’apnea e il salvamento, studia la flora e la fauna, il moto ondoso, i venti e le correnti, rafforza e accresce le dinamiche del gruppo. Chiunque può quindi affrontare in maniera positiva l’esperienza di un campo Swimtrekking se interessato a sperimentare le conoscenze da noi proposte.

Salvaguardia dell’ambiente costiero a Marina di Camerota

PAESE: ITALIA
CONTRIBUTO: 220
TARGET: Adulti
DATA INIZIO: 11 / 8 / 2016
DATA FINE: 20 / 8 / 2016

PROGETTO: Marina di Camerota da anni ha intrapreso un percorso di valorizzazione del proprio patrimonio storico, naturalistico e ambientale, attraverso scelte spesso coraggiose, che si sono rivelate utili ed efficaci.  Accanto alla promozione di un turismo sostenibile, legato alla bellezza dei luoghi, alle tradizioni locali, alla cultura eno-gastronomica (fortemente indirizzata verso la riscoperta della dieta mediterranea), è stato fatto un importante lavoro sulla raccolta differenziata, sulla gestione delle acque reflue e sulla promozione culturale. Questo forte impegno è stato premiato nel 2015 con le 5 Vele, il massimo riconoscimento che Legambiente e Touring Club Italiano assegnano alle eccellenze balneari italiane (nel 2015 erano 15 le località premiate). 

LAVORO: I volontari saranno impegnati in una serie di attività finalizzate alla tutela e salvaguardia del territorio di Camerota, e iniziative di informazione e sensibilizzazione indirizzate a turisti e cittadini verso una corretta fruizione dell’ambiente. In particolare, con l'ausilio di un banchetto informativo presente in prossimità della Spiaggia del Cefalo e della retrostante Pineta di Sant'Iconio, i volontari forniranno informazioni dettagliate circa la rilevanza ambientale dell'area e i comportamenti indispensabili per salvaguardare l'ambiente costiero. Nella stessa pineta i volontari installeranno pannelli esplicativi e realizzeranno percorsi per passeggiate. Inoltre saranno impegnati in attività di supporto nella realizzazione di eventi culturali organizzati dall'amministrazione di Camerota.

LUOGO: Famosa per la produzione artigianale di anfore e di corde della pesca, questo piccolo centro situato nel basso Cilento, si trova al limite del Golfo di Policastro. Camerota è meta di turisti diretti soprattutto sulla costa nota per gli approdi, dove si trova Marina di Camerota con splendide spiagge affiancate da torri e grotte sommerse ed emerse e la stazione balneare con il porto. Tra le grotte più famose che caratterizzano questa località, c’è la grotta della Cala, dove sono stati rivenuti resti umani preistorici, e la grotta sepolcrale dove invece venivano sepolti i defunti. Per chi è appassionato di speleologia, a Marina di Camerota si trova l’Ecomuseo Virtuale Paleolitico che permette di esplorare, grazie alle moderne tecnologie, il territorio costiero durante il periodo della preistoria. Finalmente, quest’anno, è stata tolta l’enorme gru per l’alaggio delle barche che campeggiava sul porticciolo rovinando lo skyline del borgo marinaro.

ALLOGGIO: il gruppo di volontari sarà ospitato in una scuola elementare, fornita di brandine e materassi.

REQUISITI RICHIESTI: attitudine alle relazioni e a parlare con le persone.

Thanks to the local association “Friends of the Mill”, visitors can discover the various steps of making bread, a pedagogical process that started in 2011. Quickly after its inauguration in June 2013, the site became a key element in the touristic development of the city. Many renewable energies-related events are organized there, such as the “Fête des Céréales” and the organic market, therefore developing a new attractive side related to the heritage of the Loir valley area. The association is more than 25 years old and the mill project brought a new vitality to it, mainly thanks to the intergenerational exchanges, the involvement of the volunteer and the great dynamism of the current facilitator. The Friends of the Mill association has been linked to the Jinov network for more than a year. Jinov aims at promoting youth initiatives and intergenerational cooperation with the purpose of the implementation of a youth center in the Mill. Concordia has been organizing international workcamps in the Sarthe department for many years, and it is thanks to this involvement that the second international workcamp will take place in August. Therefore, international volunteers and local youth will get to communicate and work together, animating the local community and strengthening the attractiveness of the territory. The workcamp will allow the area to be more outward looking, through the valorization of the local heritage and the preservation of the Mill.

Background/Project:  Youth development is an unconditional posture for nation building as the strength of future development of a nation depends solely upon it. The future of any country is always predicated on its present youth productive force.

The United Nations recognizes youth as the age group of people between 15 to 24 years of age, the Ninth plan of Nepal has mentioned the age group of 15-29 and, recently, National Youth policy has considered youth as the age group of people between 16-40 years of age. According to this National Youth Policy all Nepali citizens aging 16-40 years shall be treated as youth.

In Nepal, youths constitutes 38 percent of the total population of Nepal. More than 3 million youths are working as migrant workers in countries except India. The number of migrant Nepalese working in India is even larger. The reasons behind migration are almost same in Nepal as in other parts of the world. Poverty, limited employment opportunities, deteriorating agricultural productivity, and armed conflict are some of the motives behind international labour migration. According to statistics, about 400,000 youths hit the employment market every year. 

The major problems faced by the youths of Nepal could be many. Some of them are, Different types of Unemployment, Less scope for self-employment, Poor Practical education, Incompletion of formal education, Involvement in antisocial activities, including AIDS and drug addiction, Unawareness in health care , Imbalanced education and training, Inadequate opportunities for participation in public decision-making, Inadequate facilities for recreation and creative work, Alcoholism and drug dependence, Less knowledge about modern technology, Inefficiency in IT, Absence of conducive environment of sports and games, Lack of sense of accountability and responsibility to family and society, Moral degradation, Less aware about their rights 

The situation of youths is different in accordance with social, economic and geographical context. There is difference between the youths in urban and rural areas in terms of their access to services, facilities and resources. The youths of the rural areas have very limited resources, means and opportunities.

Objectives:

To promote a culture and solidarity among the participants.

To inspire and equip young people in the local community to learn and succeed through interaction and activities. 

To stimulate entrepreneurial thinking amongst young people 

To help young people become enterprising - help them establish business and social enterprises in the community

DESCRIPTION: PARTNER DESCRIPTION: - WORK DESCRIPTION: This is the ninth year that SEEDS organizes series of International Photo marathons Every two weeks throughout the year volunteers from all over the world come to Iceland for an intensive Photo marathon project. SEEDS coordinators work with the participants to develop their unique photographic voice through workshops and feedback sessions on technical settings, compositional considerations as well as developing conceptual frameworks which progress the participants individual style. When the workshop ends, we gather as a group to select some of our best pictures from the trip and prepare those images for an informal group exhibition locally. While learning more about photography the participants explore Icelandic culture by taking part in it, capturing it and also by working for the City of Reykjavik. One of our objectives is to deliver messages and draw the attention to the local population through pictures and photos made during the camp.Participants should arrive ready to shoot and should bring with them their own digital cameras, lenses and laptops if possible. Volunteers should be prepared for walking and visually exploring the city streets and working within a flexible time schedule. Participants will be photographing in their free time outside of workshop hours with images to be discussed at group feedback sessions.We will also be able to join the happenings of Menningarnott (The Culture Night) on August 20th. Menningarnott is a yearly event held in Reykjavik. It was created by the Reykjavik city council, and has now become the largest festival in Iceland, rivalling the celebration of Iceland s national day on June 17th. During Culture Night a carnival atmosphere reigns. The festival consists of a main stage in the centre and many smaller events spread over the city. The highlight is an outside concert by few of the popular musicians in Iceland followed by a glamorous fireworks show.Please note that this project is more of a learning/sharing camp and not a regular work camp; we may be able to organize some outdoor voluntary service but it depends on our partners and weather conditions. SEEDS also organises excursions outside of the city, which gives the chance to see more of what this beautiful country has to offer at a discounted price. ACCOMODATION AND FOOD: SEEDS participants will stay in a house in Reykjavik. The facilities are basic with a shower, washing machine, kitchen and everyone is expected to show consideration for their companions. We will sleep in shared rooms in a sleeping bag accommodation.

Do not forget some traditional/typical food from your home country for the international evening. LOCATION AND LEISURE: Reykjavik is a dynamic, modern city which lives in harmony with beautiful nature, using renewable energy sources - geothermal power and glacial rivers. The world s northernmost capital bridges the Atlantic, between Europe and North America. Reykjavik is spread across a peninsula with a panoramic view of the mountains and the Atlantic Ocean on almost all sides.Reykjavik is often called the nightlife capital of the north .

The Grayhill project is an historical restoration and re-enactment project based in a re-created 16th century landscape near Chepstow in Monmouthshire, they have been hosting international volunteers since the project began in 1987.

Grayhill Historical Farm was bought by the Historical Land Group Trust and renovation of the entire 15.5 acre site to its late 16th early 17th century condition began in 1987. There are 30 fields in the 15 acres which have been returned to their historical land uses, hay meadows, pasture, woodland, arable, gardens and orchards.

Ten collapsed period buildings have been restored so far, from Longhouses to pig sties. Much of the 3 miles of field boundaries have been reinstated along with ponds and wells. The site provides the ideal background for film shoots and educational courses as well as the production of period foodstuffs. The BBC historical documentary TV series 'Tales from the Green Valley' was set here.

We realise that these conditions can seem intimidating to many people, but we will assure you that it is not as scary as it seems. The art of living simply is often lost but we strive to create a humble, peaceful place full of natures wonders in which you can have a complete break from reality. Who knows... you might never want to leave!

DESCRIPTION: PARTNER DESCRIPTION: - WORK DESCRIPTION: Our host for this project is a farmer s family on the south shore of Iceland, who cultivates carrots and keeps cows. This is the fifth year that SEEDS participants will have the unique opportunity to get to know and explore this traditional Icelandic vegetable and dairy farm.The main tasks in this project will be connected with the carrot cultivation. Volunteers will be in the fields, covering the garden beds. Volunteers might get the chance to help harvest the carrots, clean and wrap them. There will be some cleaning tasks too, for instance cleaning the garden beds and beautifying the area around.Those who are interested in farm animals are invited to take a look at the cows in the stalls, assist in milking them if they are interested or just tend to them in general.Iceland is highly dependent on imports for its fruit and vegetable consumption. Only about 1 of the total land area is under arable cultivation. The cool climate and restricted growing season only allow for the cultivation of food crops such as carrots, potatoes, turnips, cabbage, and cauliflower. ACCOMODATION AND FOOD: SEEDS volunteers will stay in a fully equipped flat, in a sleeping bag accommodation sharing rooms. Please bring your own sleeping bag.Volunteers will receive food supplies and be in charge of cooking and cleaning. Do not forget some traditional/typical food from your home country for the international evening. LOCATION AND LEISURE: The farm is located in the South of Iceland, a beautiful area surrounded by mountains and glaciers to the north and near the Atlantic Ocean to the south. The inhabitants here live in constant threat of volcanic eruptions, the area was covered by ashes during the recent eruptions in Eyjafjallajokull 2010 and Vatnajokull 2011.Vik, the closest town, is Iceland s most southerly village. Mirdalur is bordered by the glacial river Jokulsa to the west and the river Blautakvisl to the east. On the northern border is Mirdalsjokull glacier, which caps the volcanic Mt. Katla, while its southern limits are the black sand beach and the rolling Atlantic waves. The district lives mainly by agriculture. Although this community of 600 inhabitants faces the open Atlantic, Vik is the only seaside settlement in Iceland left without a harbour due to natural circumstances. Among the many aspects of Vik that make it attractive are the sea-and-land trips and trips on the Mirdalsjokull glacier to list a few. The natural beauty of the area is spectacular. Just east of the village s outskirts lies one of Europe s biggest arctic tern breeding grounds. South of Vik is a beautiful beach which has its very own charm with the black sand and the drastic coast line. A short hike within the close vicinity of Vik is sure to satisfy all serious nature lovers and bird watchers. Vik and its surroundings is one of the main bird life areas in Iceland.Our host will organise free time activities in the area, depending on the weather conditions. REQUIREMENTS: Participation fee EUR 200 (Euros). Please note that these fees are to be paid to SEEDS on arrival in either Euros or Icelandic kronas.Volunteers should have a motivation for getting to know ways of living in rural areas in Iceland.

PROGETTO: Il circolo Legambiente occhi verdi organizza nell’area del Parco Eco Archeologico un campo di volontariato che ha come obiettivo la riorganizzazione del giardino di piante aromatiche e della macchia mediterranea (giardino dei cinque sensi) utilizzato nei percorsi didattici dal CEA attivo all’interno del Parco e  la collocazione di cartellonistica descrittiva della flora del suddetto giardino. Costruzione di cassoni per la coltivazione ortiva rivolta ai soggetti con disabilità motoria da posizionare all’interno dell’orto didattico e della serra didattica. Allestimento delle strutture dell’orto didattico. Costruzione di una compostiera. 
Le attività sono finalizzate ad una maggiore conoscenza botanica e ad un approfondimento della tematiche legate alla biodiversità. Si approfondirà il valore terapeutico dell’orticoltura come strumento per riavvicinarsi alla terra e come strumento per migliorare l’inclusione sociale di soggetti svantaggiati.

CIRCOLO: Il circolo Legambiente occhi verdi è attivo sul territorio da circa trent’anni e da 17 anni gestisce il Parco Eco Archeologico, sottratto all’incuria ed all’abbandono con un’azione di “Puliamo il mondo”. A questo è seguita una collaborazione proficua con la Sovrintendenza ai beni archeologici, proprietaria dell’area, che ha portato il circolo alla tutela attiva del luogo. Dal 2001 il circolo ha posto in essere un’esperienza, pioniera per la Legambiente, di realizzazione e gestione di orti urbani. Il circolo si impegna da sempre perché il territorio conosca uno sviluppo più sostenibile possibile, in quest’ottica è in prima linea nella lotta al progetto di artificializzazione del tratto di costa da Pontecagnano a Capaccio promosso dalla Provincia di Salerno.

LUOGO: Il Parco Eco Archeologico di Pontecagnano-Faiano sorge sull’antica città di Picentia e si estende per 12 ettari. All’interno di esso è presente uno scavo archeologico che ha riportato alla luce una abitazione di epoca romana e negli anni sono state ritrovate testimonianze della civiltà etrusca. Intorno allo scavo archeologico si estende un frutteto. Nella restante parte dell’area si trovano gli orti urbani, che ad oggi sono 78 ed il Centro di educazione ambientale che opera con le scuole di tutta la regione. Pontecagnano sorge  ai piedi dei monti Picentini ed ha da sempre una vocazione agricola. Ospita un museo archeologico nazionale (Etruschi di frontiera) che custodisce una delle collezioni più importanti di reperti archeologici della civiltà etrusca. E’situato a metà strada tra la costiera amalfitana e quella cilentana.

LAVORO: Riorganizzazione del giardino di piante aromatiche e della macchia mediterranea (giardino dei cinque sensi), costruzione di cassoni per la coltivazione ortiva rivolta ai soggetti con disabilità motoria, costruzione di una compostiera artigianale.

ATTIVITA’ FORMATIVE: Laboratorio di conoscenza delle piante spontanee e di quelle aromatiche con particolare attenzione alle proprietà curative con la preparazione di tisane.

Laboratorio di agricoltura biologica: fertilità del terreno, consociazioni, rotazioni, pacciamatura, focus sui macerati.

Laboratorio sulla panificazione: dalla preparazione della pasta madre alla cottura nel forno a legna, conoscenza dei grani antichi.

Partecipazione al “pummarola day”, attività promossa dal circolo “Legambiente Leonia” nella valle del Sarno, terra del pomodoro per eccellenza, alla riscoperta della tradizione del “buccaccio”

ALLOGGIO: L’alloggio dove i volontari soggiorneranno è una scuola elementare all’interno della quale sono presenti le aule che verranno utilizzate come camerate per i volontari, i bagni sia per i maschi che per le femmine, una cucina attrezzata ed una sala mensa, un ampio cortile esterno.

Background/Project:  Nepal is a beautiful mountainous country. More than 80 % of the population live in rural areas with over 35% of the population living below the poverty line. Access to proper health and sanitation facilities is often very limited and awareness of correct hygiene practices is low. Only 46% of the population has access to toilets, leaving 54% to practice open-air defecation. 

Due to lack of awareness, the community site has to deal with environmental problems such as water pollution, air pollution, noise pollution, solid waste management, open deification etc. Recognising these concerns, VIN organises camps to address these environmental and educational issues.  It focuses on Workcamps/ short-term projects which include environmental protection, tree planting, working along with local partners and community people to spread health and hygiene awareness among the community people. The work will vary largely in the camps and will include some simple physical work.

 The implementation of the Total Sanitation Project is expected to generate a significant improvement in the health and sanitation conditions of the community and protect the environment as a reduction in the occurrence of sickness within the community and an improved quality of life.

Our aim through this project is to construct toilets, create awareness among the people and to give them more instruments to feel confident and feel free to decide for their future, and for the future of a new generation. VIN cooperates with several local partners in assisting various government schools by creating awareness about the environment; health and hygiene; working with local schools in teaching basic English through creative learning methods; simple renovation activities like painting, cleaning or  constructing toilets, tree planting etc.

DESCRIPTION: PARTNER DESCRIPTION: - WORK DESCRIPTION: Around 200 years ago, as a result of an increasing need for energy and a shortage of wood, humans started using peat as an energy source. Throughout Germany, almost 99 of the original moors were destroyed due to draining and degradation. In Raubling, over the last 8 years, there has been the largest moor-renaturalization project in central Europe. The drainage ditches in the former peat bogs have been closed and walls made of peat have been built in order to keep rain water within the moor. In the most re-wetted areas, both plant growth and biodiversity are now on the rise. Besides this, these efforts have aided in both climate and flood protection (due to a reduction of greenhouse gases). In this workcamp you have the opportunity to ensure that the original nature of the moors, and conservation work itself, is ecologically sound, accessible and tangible. You ll be building a footpath, thinning out shrubbery, putting up screening fences, as well as taking care of the plants and the dam. And all of this with a lovely view of the mountains ACCOMODATION AND FOOD: You ll be sleeping on gym mats at the sports centre in Raubling. You ll cook your own meals together. LOCATION AND LEISURE: You can experience one of the prettiest Bavarian natural countrysides, go swimming, take a mountain tour or go on a day trip to Neuschwanstein, Munich or Salzburg. It s possible to go swimming in lakes, in an outdoor swimming pool and in the moor. You could also visit a typical Bavarian autumn festival in Rosenheim. REQUIREMENTS: You must be able to ride a bike, because you ll cycle to work. Strong shoes, waterproof clothing and clothes for swimming are absolutely necessary NOTES: This camp is partly supported by the Umwelt-, Kultur- und Sozialstiftung (environmental, cultural and social foundation) of the Rosenheim district. The work is sometimes physically demanding. AIRPORT: MUC STATION: Raubling MAX TEENAGERS: 0 ACCESSIBILITY: 0 PROJECT SUMMARY:

DESCRIPTION: PARTNER DESCRIPTION: The partner is the Dutch State Forestry, commissioned by the Dutch government to manage a large part of the nature reserves in the Netherlands. Working towards a sustainable living environment for man, plant and animal is central to their mission. It is a social organization, working for and on behalf of society, cooperating actively with Dutch citizens and the organisations and institutions that represent them. WORK DESCRIPTION: The volunteers will work in the area surrounding Twijzel, a small village in Fryslân, known for its cultural-historic and blooming blue-grass landscapes and swamp forests. The participants will play an important role in the preservation of the flora and fauna of the area. Together with the state forest rangers participants will do different activities such as cutting, dredging and maintaining the paths. Because of the unique status of the area this is work that cannot be carried out by machines. So the volunteers will play a vital role in the nature preservation. ACCOMODATION AND FOOD: Volunteers will stay in small bungalows with 6 beds per bungalow. Each bungalow has its own bathroom, toilet and kitchen with equipment. The group will cook together for themselves. LOCATION AND LEISURE: The working area of ‘State Forestry Noard-Fryslân’ offers a various landscape with a rough swamp nature. It is a perfect area to walk around so you can see the various landscapes. There are a lot of little lakes here in the north of Fryslân. Together with the camp leaders the volunteers will discuss the recreational program. For example they can explore the area by bike, go swimming, visit a museum or other places in the Netherlands, such as Leeuwarden, a city nearby. The camp leaders will have some ideas, but of course it is possible for the volunteers to put forward their own ideas for this program! Leisure time will also be spent on the theme: “Cross your borders!”. During this activity, the participants will interact with local communities, share cultures and have fun! REQUIREMENTS: • Old/working clothes • Rubber boots (working fields can be very muddy!) • High top sneakers • Rain is spread out over the year, so bring warm clothes, a raincoat and a swimming suit!
