About the volunteer workUnder the “Internationale Woche – Die Welt zu Gast” (International Week – 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.
Local accommodationThere 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.
About the project locationAs 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.
Extra info about the projectPlease bring waterproof clothing with you, since you will be working outside. You will be working 6.5 hour days, 4 times during the week.
