Open Houses

TRAVAIL

The projects of Open Houses are based on sustainable principles. So also the activities at Lohra Castle combine aspects of cultural heritage preservation and aspects of natural heritage preservation. On one hand the volunteers participating at the Building Weeks restore the historical buildings of the castle complex, on the other hand the participants of the Workcamps carry out works in the green areas and the forests around the castle.Because around the outer walls of the castle trees had been grown up during the last two decades, actually the castle is partly not seen from the valley. So, besides taking care of green areas the volunteers will help to cut the trees around the walls in order to expose the view to the castle and will transport the wood to the storage place as well as splitting and stacking the wood.

LOGEMENT &NOURRITURE

Within the old service buildings of the castle, you will stay in four little houses with 3- and 4- or 6- bedrooms with showers (limited hot water) and toilettes. The equipment is simple but fair. The fully equipped kitchen, which is situated next to the accommodation houses, is a separate building with large tables and benches inside. The atmosphere is rustic and historic. No washing machines.The meals will be prepared together as they are part of the community life, what means that everybody will be responsible for the meal at least once during its stay. So it would be very nice if you could bring typical recipes from home in order to introduce each other to the preparation of food from all over the world.

SITUATION

Lohra Castle is situated in the heart of Germany in Northern Thuringia. The castle, which is surrounded by a scenic hilly landscape, is located on the edge of a nature reserve area. Being one of the largest castles in Thuringia, the history of the castle Lohra begins in the Middle Age. The castle is more than 1,000 years old. Today, it includes twenty buildings from different times: medieval fortifications, remnants of a tower from the 11th century, a Romanesque chapel, a manor house from the Renaissance period as well as stables and granaries from the 19th and the early 20th centuries. The ensemble is situated in the centre of a beautiful forest. For years Lohra Castle was vacant. In the 1990s Open Houses started to restore the castle and to revive it by cultural activities. Since that time, a large number of Workcamps, Building Weeks, exhibitions, concerts and other activities with international participants took place in the castle.The castle is situated next to a nature protected

The inhabitants here live in constant threat of volcanic eruptions and the area was covered by ashes during the recent eruptions in Eyjafjallajökull 2010 and Vatnajökull (Grimsvötn) in 2011. Vík is Iceland’s southernmost village. Mýrdalur is bordered by the glacial river Jökulsá to the west and the river Blautakvísl to the east. Its northern border is the Mýrdalsjökull 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, Vík is the only seaside settlement in Iceland left without a harbour due to natural circumstances. Among the many attractive aspects of Vík, are the trips to the South shore and to Mýrdalsjökull glacier.

Scoured by Ice Age glaciers, the dramatic east coast boasts long, narrow fjords with steep sides and jagged peaks which contrast with inland fertile farmlands. Natural harbours depict postcard-like fishing villages and seemingly never-ending roads cross the region, providing beautiful views. “Fjarðabyggð" is an association of villages in the Eastern fjords of Iceland. It includes the towns of Eskifjörður, Fáskrúðsfjörður, Mjóifjörður, Neskaupstaður, Reyðarfjörður and Stöðvarfjörður, all tiny fishing villages with steep mountains towering just behind the houses. In this area, you will see some of the features that make Iceland a unique place in the world: spectacular fjords with a rich sea life, a great variety of birdlife and countless breath-taking hiking paths.

TRAVAIL

Volunteers will have environmental tasks in different areas in Fjardabyggd, for example cleaning the coastline, planting trees, taking down old fences, removing lupines or other plants and fixing hiking paths. Our work will also depend on weather conditions, which is why we have to be flexible. You should be prepared for unfriendly weather, but hopefully, the weather will be nice most of the time. This is a perfect camp for people who like outdoor work and physical challenges. Working hours are about 6 hours a day, 5 days a week. In the beginning of the project, volunteers will receive an introduction about the tasks – afterwards we will choose a topic for the newsletter. This is a great opportunity to step into different projects and get to know Iceland even better. The group will take photos, create videos and conduct interviews with volunteers, local hosts and people living in the area. The outcome will be published in the WF UNA magazine. At the end of the project, we will prepare the final version of the magazine and publish it online. During this time of the year, the weather in Iceland can be very unfriendly and cold. We strongly recommend you to bring along warm and waterproof clothes. You should also be aware of the fact that the weather can get so extreme that it will not allow us to leave the accommodation for some days.

Reykjavik is a city full of energy, just waiting for you to experience it. Powered by heat from the earth below, with ever-changing weather sweeping across the landscape, its natural features are matched by the energy of its residents. Think of the denominators of a great city – fun, culture, nature, clean air – Reykjavik has them in spades. All the advantages of a modern, forward-looking society are complemented by the beautiful natural setting. In a country of only just over 300,000 people, the Reykjavik capital area has a population of about 200,000. However, since it’s the only major city in the country, Reykjavik has a lot of the amenities that you would only expect to find in a much larger center elsewhere in the world. Reykjavik is the world’s northernmost capital city. Arrive at the right time of year, and in favourable conditions you will see the city’s skyline silhouetted against the glowing, shimmering curtain of the aurora borealis, also known as the northern lights which can be seen from September until the end of April. Reykjavik is framed by the majestic Mt. Esja and the blue waters of Faxafloi Bay to the north, while rugged lava-fields spread to the southeast. On a clear sunny day, the Snaefellsjökull glacier glitters on the western horizon like a crystal.

TRAVAIL

The organisation has a farmhouse on the outskirts of Reykjavik, 15 km from the center of the capital. Since the creation of Worldwide Friends, the organisation has been looking for an opportunity to set up a project that aims to promote sustainable living. Volunteers will do some renovation in the house and on the property and take care of the work in the farm. We have chickens, a cat, a dog, a greenhouse for growing herbs and vegetables and a piece of land where we grow potatoes, carrots and lettuce. Volunteers will help with all tasks related to the farm, as the work varies depending on the season. This year, we will also have specific topics to discuss in the workcamps, such as “food waste”, “recycling” and “renewable energy”. We will go for visits related to those topics for example, a visit to the powerplant Hellisheiðarvirkjun https://www.geothermalexhibition.com/exhibition. The Exhibition is presented via interactive multimedia installations, wall displays and presentations. It allows visitors to examine Iceland’s geothermal energy utilization in a clear and illuminating fashion. We will also visit the recycle Center Sorpa where the volunteers will learn about recycling methods. The volunteers will also create documentaries, posters and brochures related to sustainable living, which will be introduced to children in Reykjavik.

LOGEMENT &NOURRITURE

Worldwide Friends volunteers will be staying in our house in Sveinsstadir, which is located on the outskirts of Reykjavik.

TRAVAIL

The Environment &Sustainability learning camp allows participants to share and learn about global &local issues through theory and practice. If you are concerned, for example, about climate change, waste management, animal protection, sustainable solutions &other environmental topics then this project is for you. Local Icelandic environmental issues as well as issues from the participants’ countries will be addressed. Please note this project is a learning/sharing camp, in which everybody is expected to contribute their own knowledge and experience, and not a standard workcamp. The main focus of this camp is to learn about different aspects of environmental and sustainability issues through a selection of workshops, discussions and visits. Topics may include issues like renewable energy, food waste, and sustainable practices such as collaborative consumption or veganism. The over 2 million tourists coming to Iceland every year leave a mark on the country. This camp will help you to be an environmentally aware traveller &consumer. Participants also get the chance to visit local projects focused on the environment, such as a visit to a local recycling centre whereby a tour of the plant is given and the activities are explained. The group will also visit a Geothermal power plant and have a guided tour of the facilities via interactive multimedia installations, wall displays and presentations to learn about Iceland‘s geothermal energy utilization.
