This project will allow you to learn about both global and local environmental issues through theory and practice as well. If you are concerned, for example, about global climate, waste management, animal protection, sustainability and other topics, this project might be the best for you. Local Icelandic environmental issues as well as issues from the participants' countries will be addressed through discussions. Becoming one of more than one million tourists coming to Iceland every year might leave a mark. Do you want to know how to diminish your environmental impact as a traveller?

We will start with the state of the environment in general; then we will make an overview of the environment in Iceland - issues that regular visitors may not get to know or learn about by travelling around Iceland (like the ecological footprint and energy use). We will then have workshops about human needs - difference between 'wanting' and 'needing' something for a 'happy complete' life. During these days, debates about consumerism, recycling, society and empowering will come up. Some days we will have workshops on global issues, and we will have documentary nights where we discuss the issues close to our heart among friends… Our participants usually also learn how to make things independently in a simple and easy way, for instance seed-bombs to grow trees, cheese, humus and bread. Some of our study visits may include one of the garbage collection/recycling centres of SORPA in Reykjavik or the geothermal power plant!

Each of our Environmental Awareness Workshops will get a chance to improve the local environment through hands-on activities. The specifics of the work might depend on weather conditions and schedule of our partners.

Please note that this project is more a learning/sharing camp and not a standard workcamp. We may be able to organize some voluntary service activities.
