Notre partenaire WF en Islande, qui a vu le jour en 2001, est une ONG sans but lucratif qui promeut des activités nature et pacifiques pour les personnes qui cherchent à devenir volontaires en Islande. WF envoie aussi à l’étranger des Islandais qui souhaitent faire du volontariat. Les principales activités offertes par notre partenaire local sont des chantiers, des programmes d’échange et des séminaires. Ces activités s’adressent aux majeurs d’âge.


Les chantiers durent généralement entre 10 et 14 jours, à raison de 20-35 heures de travail par semaine (5 jours par semaine).


De nos jours, la tentative d’atteindre une paix au niveau international est devenue une possibilité tangible et le développement et le renforcement de liens de coopération et d’amitié à travers le contact avec des personnes de pays et de cultures différents ont prouvé leur efficacité dans la compréhension et l’unité entre les nations. Le but de notre partenaire est d’améliorer la compréhension interculturelle en offrant aux volontaires étrangers l’opportunité de prendre part à des activités nature et pacifiques.


Les projets permettent aux volontaires non seulement d’explorer les paysages et d’interagir avec la culture islandaise, mais aussi de participer à des activités avec d’autres volontaires et des habitants locaux dans un contexte peu familier et difficile. Le contact direct avec une nature préservée et des individus d’origines différentes offre aux participants l’opportunité d’en apprendre plus sur eux-mêmes, les volontaires, les autres cultures et la richesse naturelle et humaine de notre planète. Toutes ces choses permettent de créer des liens entre les sociétés à travers le monde.


A propos du travail de volontaire


Tu coopères avec les organisateurs du festival de films Reykjavík International Film Festival. Tu effectues différentes tâches avant et pendant le festival. Tu collabores étroitement avec d’autres volontaires qui ont choisi le même projet que toi, mais également avec une équipe de volontaires d’Islande, principalement composée d’étudiants universitaires de Reykjavík.


En tant que volontaire, tu vas coller des affiches et distribuer des brochures un peu partout dans la ville avant le début du festival ; tu seras peut-être mené à aller chercher des invités internationaux à l’aéroport. Pendant le festival, tu vas vendre des tickets et passes, préparer les lieux avant et après les films et contrôler l’entrée, si besoin est. D’autres tâches sont possibles, il faut donc que tu sois flexible et disponible dès que l’on aurait besoin de toi.


Ce festival est l’un des évènements culturels les plus importants de Reykjavík, et les volontaires y contribuent considérablement. Cette expérience est très intéressante pour toi, et tu as la chance de t’imprégner de l’ambiance incroyable qui y règne.


A propos du logement sur place


Tu loges dans une maison dans des conditions basiques. Le lit et le drap de lit sont fournis, mais tu dois apporter ton propre sac de couchage ! Une connexion internet est disponible gratuitement. Le logement se trouve à 25 minutes à pied des commodités, dont des banques, pharmacies, supermarchés, piscines municipales, restaurants, cafés, bibliothèques, théâtres, magasins, musées, station de bus, etc.


A propos de l'alimentation


La nourriture est comprise durant toute la durée du chantier. Toutefois, chacun doit participer aux tâches comme la cuisine et le nettoyage. Comme il est toujours agréable de découvrir de nouvelles saveurs, tu es encouragé(e) à amener des recettes de chez toi.


Localisation du projet


Reykjavík est une ville pleine d’énergie qui n’attend que toi pour que tu en fasses l’expérience. Les caractéristiques naturelles de Reykjavík, ville puisant de la chaleur dans la terre et ayant un temps changeant sans arrêt, s’accompagnent de l’énergie de ses résidents. Loisirs, culture, nature et air sain : voilà toutes les qualités dont l’Islande dispose à la pelle. Tous les avantages d’une société moderne et prospective sont complétés par une nature magnifique. Dans un pays qui compte à peine plus de 300 000 habitants, la région de Reykjavík en recense environ 200 000. Toutefois, comme il s’agit de la seule grande ville du pays, Reykjavík possède toutes les infrastructures que l’on retrouve uniquement dans les grandes métropoles du reste du monde. Reykjavík est la capitale la plus septentrionale du monde et est située sur la péninsule de Seltjarnarnes. Si tu y vas à la bonne période de l’année, tu pourras y apercevoir des aurores boréales, aussi connues sous le nom de « lumières du Nord ». Reykjavík est bordée au Nord par le majestueux mont Esja et par les eaux bleues de la baie de Faxafloi et, au Sud-Est, par des champs de lave. Lorsqu’il fait beau et clair, le glacier Snaefellsjökull reluit à l’horizon tel un diamant.


A propos des activités de loisirs possibles


Le logement, situé dans un lieu propice, est parfait pour jouir de l’incroyable vie nocturne de Reykjavík, connue pour son large éventail de bars, boites de nuit et concerts.


Notre partenaire organise aussi des week-ends d’excursion à prix raisonnable vers les plus belles régions et merveilles naturelles que l’Islande a à offrir. L’excursion t’emmène voir des phénomènes et paysages propres à l’Islande : lagunes, chutes d’eau, régions volcaniques et géothermiques, glaciers, geysers, champs de lave, sources chaudes, chaînes de montagnes en rhyolite, trous de vapeur et même icebergs.


A propos du point de rencontre


Les vols internationaux arrivent à l’aéroport de Keflavík (KEF). WF propose une option minibus entre le lieu de rencontre et le logement (60 euros) qui inclut l’excursion du Cercle d’or.


Informations supplémentaires sur le projet


Frais de participation : 280 euros


Langue : Une connaissance élémentaire de l’anglais est nécessaire pour ce chantier.

A propos de l'organisation localeThe village of Raufarhöfn is the community that lies farthest north in Iceland. It is located in the eastern part of Melrakkasletta close to the Arctic Circle. The population of Raufarhöfn is about 200 and most of the people there earn their living from fishing and fish processing. The harbor is very beautiful and partly shaped by nature itself. A wide and untouched open area surrounds the village with a lot of birds and varied vegetation. In summer one will observe wild migratory birds within the village being a part of the village life with the villagers most often waking up in the morning to the songs of birds. The coastline with its inlets and creeks is filled with driftwood and reaches out into the Arctic Sea. Away and on the surface of the sea various sea-birds will be spotted and an occasional seal. On the beach waders strut and inland on the grassy moorlands there are dozens of lakes filled with trout. In the vicinity many species of ducks, waders and species that favor heaths and moorlands may be observed. Additional information: There is an extra participation fee of 450 euros for this workcamp. The fee includes the trip from Reykjavik to Raufarhofn and back again which is almost 1,600 km in total and takes 2 or even 3 full days (the first day of the camp and the last one). On the way to the camp, we will drive through the south to the east of the island. After the camp, we will drive through the north and west to Reykjavik (if road conditions are favourable). This trip includes several stops where you will discover unique Icelandic sights, such as glacial lagoons, waterfalls, volcanic and geothermal areas, glaciers, lava fields, hot-springs, rhyolite mountain ranges, steam-vents or even icebergs.

A propos du travail de volontaireThis camp has different kind of tasks. Some days we will focus on renovation, painting, cleaning and fixing things around the WF house. The house is around 450 m2 and through the years the volunteers have been making beautiful drawings and paintings on the wall of the house. We will continue with that art work and also we will make sculptures but otherdays we will clean the coastline in the north near to the arctic circle. Raufarhofn is in a rural area and very magical and full of energy and amazing landscapes. This is the right place to enjoy your free time taking photos and having walks around the coast line. For sure the inhabitants from the village will very interesting to get to know you and take part in some of our cultural dinners or even workshops which we can develop if volunteers are happy and dynamic enough. We will work about 6 hours a day in order to make our house in the North a much better place to This is the right place to enjoy your free time taking photos and having walks around the coast line. This work camp is a way to enjoy an amazing time in Iceland with other international volunteers and to have an incredible experience where participants share their knowledge with each other while they are exploring creativity, environmental issues and intercultural learning.

A propos du logement sur placeWorldwide Friends volunteers will be staying in the WF house in Raufarhöfn. The house is almost 450 m2 with several dormitories, two big living rooms, fully equipped kitchen, three showers and three toilets. Beds are provided; however, volunteers should bring their own warm sleeping bags or borrow one from WF if they don’t want to bring it. Wireless internet access is provided free of charge. Food is included for the duration of the workcamp, however, everyone is expected to do their fair share of the cooking and cleaning. Since it is always nice to try new and different dishes, volunteers are encouraged to bring along their favourite recipes from home! Please keep in mind that usually we have around 10 to 25 international volunteers in the house at the same time

Localisation du projetThe area in the North is also good for hiking, so please bring your hiking shoes.

A propos de l'organisation locale

L’hôte sur place est la Rehabilitation and Health Clinic, qui fait partie de la Natural Health Association of Iceland. Chaque année, environ 2 000 patients bénéficient des programmes de réadaptation de la clinique qui visent à restaurer la confiance en soi et la responsabilité personnelle du patient. Depuis sa fondation en 1955, la clinique jouit d’une solide réputation à l’échelle tant nationale qu’internationale. Il s’agit de l’une des deux plus importantes cliniques de réadaptation d’Islande.


A propos du travail de volontaire

La Natural Health Association possède un département d’horticulture et d’environnement qui comprend de la sylviculture, du jardinage et des serres : c’est là que prennent généralement place les activités des volontaires. Les activités consistent à cultiver des tomates, des concombres et préparer du thé à base d’herbes d’Islande. Tu fournis de l’aide dans la cuisine et, si besoin est, dans d’autres parties de l’association. Les activités dépendent fortement des conditions climatiques très variables. Apporte donc des vêtements adaptés aux activités en extérieur, mais aussi à celles dans les serres chauffées. La journée commence à 9h et se termine à 15h, et tu as droit à une heure de pause à midi pour manger.

A propos du logement sur place

Tu loges dans un bungalow équipé avec plusieurs chambres pour deux personnes et un salon. Avec les autres volontaires, tu t’occupes du nettoyage. Le lit est fourni, mais tu dois apporter ton sac de couchage. Le wifi est disponible le soir, mais tu dois apporter ton ordinateur portable pour pouvoir t’y connecter.

A propos de l'alimentation

La Rehabilitation and Health Clinic se charge des repas : le menu est principalement végétarien, mais il inclut deux fois par semaine du poisson local fraichement pêché. La cuisine de la clinique est réputée à travers l’Islande pour sa haute qualité. Tu ne peux trouver mieux en matière de cuisine et de logement.


Localisation du projet

Hveragerđi, qui signifie « jardin de sources chaudes », est un petit village d’environ 1 700 habitants situé à 45 kilomètres à l’Est de Reykjavík. Ce petit coin accueillant se trouve au sommet d’un champ géothermique très actif qui fournit du chauffage à des centaines de serres où poussent toutes sortes de fruits, fleurs et légumes. Même les bananes y sont cultivées ! L’énergie géothermique est l’élément vital de Hveragerđi, et tu ne trouveras probablement nulle part ailleurs dans le monde une telle merveille naturelle au milieu d’une région habitée. Près du village, il y a encore un autre site géothermique encore plus actif : Gufudalur, la « vallée de vapeur ». La vallée regorge de sources chaudes, de geysers, de puits de boue, de fumeroles et de trous de vapeur.


A propos des activités de loisirs possibles

En tant que volontaire, tu as accès aux piscines locales chauffées par géothermie. Coutumes islandaises, les piscines naturelles ont toujours joué un rôle social clé dans la culture du pays. La plupart des piscines permettent de nager à l’intérieur comme en plein air et disposent de jacuzzis et saunas ou hammams. Hveragerđi est réputé pour ses beaux paysages pour les randonnées, dont une rivière chauffée par des sources chaudes. Notre partenaire organise aussi des weekends d’excursion à prix raisonnable vers les plus belles régions et merveilles naturelles que l’Islande a à offrir. L’excursion t’emmène voir des phénomènes et paysages propres à l’Islande : lagunes, chutes d’eau, régions volcaniques et géothermiques, glaciers, geysers, champs de lave, sources chaudes, chaînes de montagnes en rhyolite, trous de vapeur et même icebergs.

une connaissance élémentaire de l’anglais est requise pour ce chantier

A propos du point de rencontre

Les vols internationaux arrivent à l’aéroport de Keflavík (KEF). WF propose une option minibus entre Reykjavík et Hveragerđi pour 60 euros et inclut une excursion Golden Circle et le trajet de retour vers Reykjavík après le chantier.

A propos de l'organisation localeScoured 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. This is one of the best places in Iceland to see the northern lights (Aurora borealis). “Fjarðabyggð" is an association of villages in the Eastern fjords of Iceland. It includes the towns of Eskifjörður, Fáskrúðsfjörður, Mjóifjörður, Neskaupstaður, Reyðarfjörður Breiðdalsvík 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 breathtaking hiking paths. There is an extra participation fee of 450 euros for this workcamp. The fee includes the trip from Reykjavik to Stodvarfjordur and back again which is almost 1,400 km in total and takes 2 full days (the first day of the camp and the last one). On the way to the camp, we will drive through the south to the east of the island. After the camp, we will drive through the north and west to Reykjavik (if road conditions are favourable). This trip includes several stops where you will discover unique Icelandic sights, such as glacial lagoons, waterfalls, volcanic and geothermal areas, glaciers, lava fields, hot-springs, rhyolite mountain ranges, steam-vents or even icebergs.

A propos du travail de volontaireDuring this workcamp, volunteers will deal with different tasks related to renovation and maintenance of our house in Stodvarfjordur in the east of Iceland. The work will depend on the skills and knowledge of each volunteer, but focuses mainly on tasks such as painting, cleaning, fixing small things, and does not require basic knowledge of carpentry or construction. During winter in Iceland the accommodations are prepared for the summer. This camp is extremely important for us and for our summer volunteers. If the weather conditions are good, we will also help the local community with various kind of environmental work. In addition to the work, winter in Iceland also means AURORA HUNTING. If you like photography, having an amazing time with friends from all over the world and the Northern lights, this camp will suit you perfectly. We will be on the lookout for Aurora borealis at night throughout the whole camp, so you will have the opportunity to take photos of this amazing and unique phenomenon. It is very important to bring your camera with you (only cameras that work in long exposure will catch those lights), and don’t forget your tripod. The photos will be of your personal use, but we will also keep the best photos and use them in our brochures, on the website and on social media.

A propos du logement sur placeWorldwide Friends volunteers will be staying in the WF house in Stodvarfjordur. The house is almost 500 m2 with several dormitories, big living room and another smaller one, two fully equipped kitchens, four showers and five toilets. Beds are provided; however, volunteers should bring their own warm sleeping bags or borrow one from WF if they don’t want to bring it. Wireless internet access is provided free of charge. Food is included for the duration of the workcamp, however, everyone is expected to do their fair share of the cooking and cleaning. Since it is always nice to try new and different dishes, volunteers are encouraged to bring along their favourite recipes from home! Please keep in mind that usually we have around 20 to 25 international volunteers in the house at the same time

In addition, please bring warm clothes with you since we are going to spend our time in an isolated place where the temperatures can get very low. If possible, please bring along traditional food, photos or anything interesting related to your country for intercultural evenings.

A propos de l'organisation locale

Notre partenaire WF en Islande est une ONG sans but lucratif créée en 2001. Elle promeut des activités autour de la nature et de l’environnement. WF envoie aussi à l’étranger des Islandais qui souhaitent faire du volontariat. Les chantiers s’adressent aux personnes âgées de 18 ans ou plus. 

Le but de notre partenaire est d’encourager les relations pacifiques entre les sociétés à travers le monde grâce à l’échange culturel. Les projets permettent aux volontaires non seulement d’explorer les paysages et d’interagir avec la culture islandaise, mais aussi de participer à des activités avec d’autres volontaires et des locaux. Le contact direct avec une nature préservée et des individus d’origines différentes offre aux participants l’opportunité d’en apprendre plus sur eux-mêmes, les volontaires, les autres cultures et la richesse naturelle et humaine de notre planète. 

A propos du travail de volontaire

Chaque année, WF Iceland accueille des centaines de volontaires sur de nombreux projets partout en Islande. L’association publie également son propre magazine, « UNA », dans lequel sont répertoriées les activités de WF Iceland. À leur arrivée, les tâches seront expliquées aux volontaires, puis un thème sera choisi pour la newsletter. Ensemble, le groupe de volontaires prendra des photos et rassemblera des témoignages pour les publier, à l’issue du projet, dans le magazine UNA.

A propos du logement sur place

Les volontaires seront logés dans le bâtiment de Worldwide Friends, à Sveinsstadir, en périphérie de Reykjavik. Conçu comme une ferme, il est l’endroit idéal pour apprécier à la fois le grand air et la capitale. Les volontaires devront apporter leur sac de couchage et leurs serviettes de toilette. Les matelas et les draps sont fournis. Les volontaires disposeront d’une connexion Wi-Fi gratuite.

A propos de l'alimentation

La nourriture est incluse pour toute la durée du séjour, bien que tout le monde doit de participer à la préparation des repas et aux tâches ménagères. Les volontaires peuvent ramener des recettes typiques de leur pays pour les faire découvrir aux autres.

Localisation du projet

Reykjavik est une ville débordante d’énergie qui n’attend que d’être découverte. Puisant son énergie dans la terre et changeant au gré de la météo, ses caractéristiques naturelles n’ont d’égal que le dynamisme de ses habitants. Reykjavik, capitale la plus septentrionale du monde, a beaucoup à offrir, tant au niveau des divertissements, que de la culture, de la nature et des activités de plein air. Sur les 300 000 habitants que compte l’Islande, 200 000 vivent à Reykjavik. À l’époque propice, il est possible d’admirer les aurores boréales depuis la ville.

A propos de l'organisation localeThe village of Raufarhöfn is the community that lies farthest north in Iceland. It is located in the eastern part of Melrakkasletta close to the Arctic Circle. The population of Raufarhöfn is about 200 and most of the people there earn their living from fishing and fish processing. The harbor is very beautiful and partly shaped by nature itself. A wide and untouched open area surrounds the village with a lot of birds and varied vegetation. In summer one will observe wild migratory birds within the village being a part of the village life with the villagers most often waking up in the morning to the songs of birds. The coastline with its inlets and creeks is filled with driftwood and reaches out into the Arctic Sea. Away and on the surface of the sea various sea-birds will be spotted and an occasional seal. On the beach waders strut and inland on the grassy moorlands there are dozens of lakes filled with trout. In the vicinity many species of ducks, waders and species that favor heaths and moorlands may be observed. Additional information: There is an extra participation fee of 450 euros for this workcamp. The fee includes the trip from Reykjavik to Raufarhofn and back again which is almost 1,600 km in total and takes 2 or even 3 full days (the first day of the camp and the last one).

A propos de l'organisation localeScoured 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. This is one of the best places in Iceland to see the northern lights (Aurora borealis). “Fjarðabyggð" is an association of villages in the Eastern fjords of Iceland. It includes the towns of Eskifjörður, Fáskrúðsfjörður, Mjóifjörður, Neskaupstaður, Reyðarfjörður Breiðdalsvík 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 breathtaking hiking paths. There is an extra participation fee of 450 euros for this workcamp.

A propos du travail de volontaireDuring this workcamp, volunteers will deal with different tasks related to renovation and maintenance of our house in Stodvarfjordur in the east of Iceland. The work will depend on the skills and knowledge of each volunteer, but focuses mainly on tasks such as painting, cleaning, fixing small things, and does not require basic knowledge of carpentry or construction. During winter in Iceland the accommodations are prepared for the summer. This camp is extremely important for us and for our summer volunteers. If the weather conditions are good, we will also help the local community with various kind of environmental work. In addition to the work, winter in Iceland also means AURORA HUNTING. If you like photography, having an amazing time with friends from all over the world and the Northern lights, this camp will suit you perfectly. We will be on the lookout for Aurora borealis at night throughout the whole camp, so you will have the opportunity to take photos of this amazing and unique phenomenon. It is very important to bring your camera with you (only cameras that work in long exposure will catch those lights), and don’t forget your tripod. The photos will be of your personal use, but we will also keep the best photos and use them in our brochures, on the website and on social media.

A propos de l'organisation locale

L’hôte sur place est la Rehabilitation and Health Clinic, qui fait partie de la Natural Health Association of Iceland. Chaque année, environ 2 000 patients bénéficient des programmes de réadaptation de la clinique qui visent à restaurer la confiance en soi et la responsabilité personnelle du patient. Depuis sa fondation en 1955, la clinique jouit d’une solide réputation à l’échelle tant nationale qu’internationale. Il s’agit de l’une des deux plus importantes cliniques de réadaptation d’Islande.


A propos du travail de volontaire

La Natural Health Association possède un département d’horticulture et d’environnement qui comprend de la sylviculture, du jardinage et des serres : c’est là que prennent généralement place les activités des volontaires. Les activités consistent à cultiver des tomates, des concombres et préparer du thé à base d’herbes d’Islande. Tu fournis de l’aide dans la cuisine et, si besoin est, dans d’autres parties de l’association. Les activités dépendent fortement des conditions climatiques très variables. Apporte donc des vêtements adaptés aux activités en extérieur, mais aussi à celles dans les serres chauffées. La journée commence à 9h et se termine à 15h, et tu as droit à une heure de pause à midi pour manger.

A propos du logement sur place

Tu loges dans un bungalow équipé avec plusieurs chambres pour deux personnes et un salon. Avec les autres volontaires, tu t’occupes du nettoyage. Le lit est fourni, mais tu dois apporter ton sac de couchage. Le wifi est disponible le soir, mais tu dois apporter ton ordinateur portable pour pouvoir t’y connecter.

A propos de l'alimentation

La Rehabilitation and Health Clinic se charge des repas : le menu est principalement végétarien, mais il inclut deux fois par semaine du poisson local fraichement pêché. La cuisine de la clinique est réputée à travers l’Islande pour sa haute qualité. Tu ne peux trouver mieux en matière de cuisine et de logement.


Localisation du projet

Hveragerđi, qui signifie « jardin de sources chaudes », est un petit village d’environ 1 700 habitants situé à 45 kilomètres à l’Est de Reykjavík. Ce petit coin accueillant se trouve au sommet d’un champ géothermique très actif qui fournit du chauffage à des centaines de serres où poussent toutes sortes de fruits, fleurs et légumes. Même les bananes y sont cultivées ! L’énergie géothermique est l’élément vital de Hveragerđi, et tu ne trouveras probablement nulle part ailleurs dans le monde une telle merveille naturelle au milieu d’une région habitée. Près du village, il y a encore un autre site géothermique encore plus actif : Gufudalur, la « vallée de vapeur ». La vallée regorge de sources chaudes, de geysers, de puits de boue, de fumeroles et de trous de vapeur.


A propos des activités de loisirs possibles

En tant que volontaire, tu as accès aux piscines locales chauffées par géothermie. Coutumes islandaises, les piscines naturelles ont toujours joué un rôle social clé dans la culture du pays. La plupart des piscines permettent de nager à l’intérieur comme en plein air et disposent de jacuzzis et saunas ou hammams. Hveragerđi est réputé pour ses beaux paysages pour les randonnées, dont une rivière chauffée par des sources chaudes. Notre partenaire organise aussi des weekends d’excursion à prix raisonnable vers les plus belles régions et merveilles naturelles que l’Islande a à offrir. L’excursion t’emmène voir des phénomènes et paysages propres à l’Islande : lagunes, chutes d’eau, régions volcaniques et géothermiques, glaciers, geysers, champs de lave, sources chaudes, chaînes de montagnes en rhyolite, trous de vapeur et même icebergs.


Exigences

une connaissance élémentaire de l’anglais est requise pour ce chantier

A propos du point de rencontre

Les vols internationaux arrivent à l’aéroport de Keflavík (KEF). WF propose une option minibus entre Reykjavík et Hveragerđi pour 60 euros et inclut une excursion Golden Circle et le trajet de retour vers Reykjavík après le chantier.

A propos de l'organisation localeReykjavik 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 330,000 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 and is centred on the Seltjarnarnes Peninsula. 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. Additional information: There is an extra participation fee of 350 euros for this workcamp. The fee includes a minibus trip from the meeting point of the camp to the accommodation and the Golden Circle South Iceland excursion.

A propos du travail de volontaireThis camp focuses on human rights education activities that will be carried out by the WF volunteers in schools in Reykjavik. The aim of this camp is to increase awareness about human rights among elementary school aged - children and early adolescents through a non-formal education approach. Through this camp volunteers will have the opportunity to explore first-hand the Icelandic education environment and put in practice their passion for human rights. The volunteers will be encouraged to learn more about them being human rights holders. This will bring them to learn also how to talk about human rights in an international environment using a communication that is accessible for children. WF camps are joined by all kind of people from any part of the world in any stage of their lives. The diverse environment of this camp represents a constant learning opportunity for the volunteers involved which will give the camp a very international and cross-cutting profile. The mutual exchange will enrich both the volunteers and the children. Volunteers will have the opportunity to challenge themselves about how to teach a topic like human rights to children. Structure of the activities: The volunteers and the camp leaders will spend the beginning of the camp discussing and planning the activities they would like to carry out in the school. To do this, training materials on human rights education will be consulted and they will receive inputs from the teachers about which topics to face during the activities with the students. Discussions and the free initiative among the volunteers will be encouraged in order to involve the volunteers as much as possible into the planning of the activities with students. Before their arrival, volunteers can be asked to consult some sources on their own too.

A propos du logement sur placeWorldwide Friends volunteers will be staying in our house in Sveinsstadir, which is located on the outskirts of Reykjavik. This place is like a farm in the city, so you can enjoy pure nature and the city life of the capital at the same time. Volunteers need to bring their own sleeping bags and towels, but beds/mattresses and bed sheets are provided. Wireless internet access is provided free of charge. Food is included for the duration of the workcamp, however, everyone is expected to do their fair share of the cooking and cleaning. Since it is always nice to try new and different dishes, volunteers are encouraged to bring along their favourite recipes (and spices) from home!

Localisation du projetOn weekends, the central location of the accommodations is ideal for enjoying Reykjavik ‘s amazing nightlife, which is world-renowned for its wide array of bars, clubs, and concerts. WF Iceland will also organise reasonably-priced weekend excursions to some of the most popular, beautiful areas and natural wonders that Iceland has to offer. Excursions include unique Icelandic sights, such as glacial lagoons, waterfalls, volcanic and geothermal areas, glaciers, geysers, lava forests, hot-springs, rhyolite mountain ranges, steam-vents or even icebergs.

A propos du travail de volontaireDuring this workcamp, volunteers will deal with different tasks related to renovation and maintenance of our house in Stodvarfjordur in the east of Iceland. The work will depend on the skills and knowledge of each volunteer, but focuses mainly on tasks such as painting, cleaning, fixing small things, and does not require basic knowledge of carpentry or construction. During winter in Iceland the accommodations are prepared for the summer. This camp is extremely important for us and for our summer volunteers. If the weather conditions are good, we will also help the local community with various kind of environmental work. In addition to the work, winter in Iceland also means AURORA HUNTING. If you like photography, having an amazing time with friends from all over the world and the Northern lights, this camp will suit you perfectly. We will be on the lookout for Aurora borealis at night throughout the whole camp, so you will have the opportunity to take photos of this amazing and unique phenomenon. It is very important to bring your camera with you (only cameras that work in long exposure will catch those lights), and don’t forget your tripod. The photos will be of your personal use, but we will also keep the best photos and use them in our brochures, on the website and on social media.

A propos du logement sur placeWorldwide Friends volunteers will be staying in the WF house in Stodvarfjordur. The house is almost 500 m2 with several dormitories, big living room and another smaller one, two fully equipped kitchens, four showers and five toilets. Beds are provided; however, volunteers should bring their own warm sleeping bags or borrow one from WF if they don’t want to bring it. Wireless internet access is provided free of charge. Food is included for the duration of the workcamp, however, everyone is expected to do their fair share of the cooking and cleaning. Since it is always nice to try new and different dishes, volunteers are encouraged to bring along their favourite recipes from home! Please keep in mind that usually we have around 20 to 25 international volunteers in the house at the same time

Localisation du projetThe area in the east is also good for hiking, so please bring your hiking shoes. WF Iceland will organise reasonably-priced weekend excursions to some of the most popular, beautiful areas and natural wonders that Iceland has to offer. Excursions include unique Icelandic sights, such as waterfalls, volcanic and geothermal areas, glaciers, lava forests, hot-springs, rhyolite mountain ranges, steam-vents or even icebergs. Take a look at http://wf.is/excursions/ We will also concentrate on intercultural learning and exchange. Every evening, volunteers from different countries will be in charge of presenting their country of origin and culture in an informal way. It can be a presentation, a game, theatre – the form of introduction is up to you! Therefore, we encourage you to bring along some food, photos or anything interesting related to your country for a fun and informative evening amongst other volunteers. This workcamp gives you the opportunity to spend an amazing time in Iceland with other international volunteers and to have an incredible experience where participants share their knowledge with each other while exploring creativity, environmental issues and intercultural learning. Keep in mind: If you own a camera and a tripod, please bring those with you. You can also bring your laptop, as it can come in handy. In addition, please bring warm clothes with you since we are going to spend our time in an isolated place where the temperatures can get very low. If possible, please bring along traditional food, photos or anything interesting related to your country for intercultural evenings.

A propos de l'organisation locale

Notre partenaire WF en Islande est une ONG sans but lucratif créée en 2001. Elle promeut des activités autour de la nature et de l’environnement. WF envoie aussi à l’étranger des Islandais qui souhaitent faire du volontariat. Les chantiers s’adressent aux personnes âgées de 18 ans ou plus. 

Le but de notre partenaire est d’encourager les relations pacifiques entre les sociétés à travers le monde grâce à l’échange culturel. Les projets permettent aux volontaires non seulement d’explorer les paysages et d’interagir avec la culture islandaise, mais aussi de participer à des activités avec d’autres volontaires et des locaux. Le contact direct avec une nature préservée et des individus d’origines différentes offre aux participants l’opportunité d’en apprendre plus sur eux-mêmes, les volontaires, les autres cultures et la richesse naturelle et humaine de notre planète. 

A propos du travail de volontaire

Chaque année, WF Iceland accueille des centaines de volontaires sur de nombreux projets partout en Islande. L’association publie également son propre magazine, « UNA », dans lequel sont répertoriées les activités de WF Iceland. À leur arrivée, les tâches seront expliquées aux volontaires, puis un thème sera choisi pour la newsletter. Ensemble, le groupe de volontaires prendra des photos et rassemblera des témoignages pour les publier, à l’issue du projet, dans le magazine UNA.

A propos du logement sur place

Les volontaires seront logés dans le bâtiment de Worldwide Friends, à Sveinsstadir, en périphérie de Reykjavik. Conçu comme une ferme, il est l’endroit idéal pour apprécier à la fois le grand air et la capitale. Les volontaires devront apporter leur sac de couchage et leurs serviettes de toilette. Les matelas et les draps sont fournis. Les volontaires disposeront d’une connexion Wi-Fi gratuite.

A propos de l'alimentation

La nourriture est incluse pour toute la durée du séjour, bien que tout le monde doit de participer à la préparation des repas et aux tâches ménagères. Les volontaires peuvent ramener des recettes typiques de leur pays pour les faire découvrir aux autres.

Localisation du projet

Reykjavik est une ville débordante d’énergie qui n’attend que d’être découverte. Puisant son énergie dans la terre et changeant au gré de la météo, ses caractéristiques naturelles n’ont d’égal que le dynamisme de ses habitants. Reykjavik, capitale la plus septentrionale du monde, a beaucoup à offrir, tant au niveau des divertissements, que de la culture, de la nature et des activités de plein air. Sur les 300 000 habitants que compte l’Islande, 200 000 vivent à Reykjavik. À l’époque propice, il est possible d’admirer les aurores boréales depuis la ville.

A propos des activités de loisirs possibles

Le week-end, les volontaires pourront profiter de la vie nocturne de Reykjavik dans ses nombreux bars, boîtes de nuit et autres salles de concert. WF Iceland organise des excursions à des prix raisonnables dans les lieux mythiques et incontournables du pays (cascades, zones volcaniques et géothermiques, anciennes coulées de lave, sources chaudes, rhyolites, trous de vapeur, icebergs, etc.).

Exigences

Connaissances de base en anglais. 
Les volontaires devront avoir de bonnes connaissances en informatique et s’intéresser au journalisme et/ou à la photographie.

Informations supplémentaires sur le projet

Les frais de participation s’élèvent à 350 € et inclus une excursion d'une journée au "golden circle" en car privé.
