Under the aeurooeInternationale Woche aeuro( Die Welt zu Gastaeuro (International Week aeuro( the world as our guest) in the area of Bamberg, you will be building a multi-generational playground in the Stegaurach community. We envisage a meeting place for people, both young and old, with both quite zones as well as more active activities. Our current ideas are a boules court, a sensory garden, a barefoot walk, and balancing games. You will be guided through the on-site work by local builders. You will be building playground equipment, laying down paths and planting things, distributing gravel, plastering as well as building a seating area and an area with protection from the sun.
There will be two rooms sectioned off from the rest of the town hall in order for you to sleep there. You will receive beds with covers and pillows. There is a kitchen in the building. Showers are in the sports hall, located next door. Meals will be prepared and cooked in groups together.
As part of the International Week from 22nd until 30th September there will be many events taking place in the region, in which you can take part. The group will receive two minibuses, so that you are able to travel around. In the sports hall and on the sports fields you can play sports and games. 10km away from your accommodation is a beautiful natural lake. You can also take the minibuses and travel to the UNESCO World Heritage Site in Bamberg.
After Worldwar II pupils from Hanover organised the first workcamps aiming to promote reconstruction, to reduce negative stereotypes through international encounters and to envisage new democratic forms of living together. In addition to workcamps, other activities have become part of the work over time. These are organised by six offices of ijgd and additional project offices. Young people can take part in mid-term and long-term voluntary services in Germany and abroad. The fields of activity include social and ecological service as well as heritage protection.
The work of ijgd is funded by state and federal subsidies as well as from other public institutions.
Encouraging intercultural understanding has remained one of the main focuses. Ijgd enables people to actively create community life while giving them the opportunity to broaden their horizons.
Ijgd invites all interested people to join projects working for the communal good!
Self-Organization is spelt with a capital S at ijgd! It purposely foregoes a camp day that is organized by its participants in lieu of a completely pre-organized one. A readiness for active participation in the group is expected from all participants. The group organizes everything about the camp, this includes grocery shopping, cooking, deciding what to do with free time, as well as all other activities of the camp.
