Wir sind die deutsche Entsendeorganisation für ein sehr spannendes EFD-Projekt auf einer finnischen Insel vor Turku!

Es geht um einen Platz für 7 Monate in einer Ökö-Community. Das Projekt heisst “Island of Opportunity” und Start ist am 01.04.2016. Neben der/dem Freiwilligen aus Deutschland sind noch Freiwillige aus Bulgarien, Lettland und Portugal dabei.


Hier ein paar Kurz-Infos: Livonsaaren yhteisökylä is an ecovillage. We are about 40 people who live in this ecovillage. We are located in the countryside, in the coastline of southwest Finland. More specifically, we are located on the island of Livonsaari, which is in the back country of the municipality of Naantali, 22 km west from Naantali town and 35 km west from the city of Turku. There is a bridge to this island. Location in Google maps: Traveling between the ecovillage and the city is arranged by bus, by an EVS car, and by rideshare. So far our EVS volunteers have among other things taken part in cultivation of vegetables in our organic garden cooperative, taken part in maintenance, renovation, and development of our communal buildings, helped in building new houses, making firewood, cleaning, cooking, creating big and small events, promoting the ecovillage in a variety of public events, and hosting our visitors. We expect that our future volunteers will be doing similar tasks and possibly an even wider range of tasks. The volunteers will be living in one of our communal houses. This one is a conventional residential house built in the 1970’s. It has a big kitchen and a big living room with fireplace. Four bedrooms have been reserved for EVS volunteers. The ecovillage has communal spaces mainly in our other buildings, which are nearby. Website: Detail-Infos gerne auf Anfrage per e-mail.
