WORK: Maybe you were prepared to join an environmental workcamp and work in nature for two weeks. Maybe you wanted to help renovate an old castle or build a playground. Maybe you wanted to support a non-profit festival or a social project. You were probably looking forward to learning new skills and meeting new friends. At this moment, however, due to the spread of the new coronavirus, borders are closed, flights are suspended and entire countries are in lockdown. That means, of course, that it is impossible for many volunteers to travel. It also means that workcamps which were planned for the next weeks have to be cancelled. But let’s look on the bright side – it is still possible to meet people from all over the world online! So join this virtual workcamp and volunteer in a different way! What will we be working on together? Let’s find meaningful tasks that can be done online. Maybe you can help translate descriptions for a museum in another country into your language. Maybe you can teach cooking lessons via video. Maybe you can give non-formal language lessons on Skype. Maybe you can contribute to a citizen science project. And of course, you can exchange ideas, experiences, language, music, recipes and much more with the other online volunteers, just as in a real workcamp. Bring your own ideas and let’s be creative together!

ACCOMMODATION: Your own home. It might not be a brand new experience, but hey, you might be missing out on sleeping on hard field beds, sharing a room with the whole workcamp group or having to make a schedule for the showers. Is that really so bad...? Plus, in our virtual workcamp, you might have a chance to see how different homes all over the world look like!

LOCATION: This workcamp will be taking place entirely online. It is accessible to everybody with a working internet connection. No borders, no visa, no need to travel, so you are saving CO2-emissions which is really nice for our beautiful planet! While it is important to keep physical distance at the moment, we can create social proximity in the digital world.

PROJECT: We believe that especially in times as challenging as these, it is important to raise our voices for solidarity and international friendship. International workcamps were created 100 years ago to work towards mutual understanding, peace and solidarity beyond borders. Let’s keep this spirit, and find new ways to get to know and support each other. This virtual workcamp is organized by different workcamp organisations worldwide as an effort to keep up international volunteering, even if most of us cannot travel right now.

REMARKS: There is no fee for this workcamp
