Volunteering in Sieben Linden Ecovillage
Location: Poppau, Gemeinde Beetzendorf – Germany
Period: Start during April 2017, if possible, duration 8 months
Deadline: 31 March 2017
Are you a Swedish resident/citizen between 18 – 30 years, interested in environment, community living, sustainable lifestyle, personal and social development (and more), willing to go on a life-changing adventure?
How about taking the big step and becoming an active member of the ecovillage community in Sieben Linden Ecovillage, Germany?
Sieben Linden Ecovillage is an intentional community in a very rural area in the North of Germany. We are living with 140 people of all ages in a newly-built village where we strive to organize all aspects of our life in a way that we have a low ecological footprint.
The volunteer will experience living and working in the community of Sieben Linden Ecovillage. The volunteer can choose among a wide variety of ecovillage-related tasks, like garden-work, supporting ecological construction, working with the guests, or working with kids.
The volunteer will work for an average of 15 hours a week in our guest-service team (mostly household-work) and experience working in the biggest work-team of the Sieben Linden community.
The volunteer will be part of the international young-people‘s group in Sieben Linden and join into the common activities of this group.
Together with the other young volunteers, the volunteer will take responsibility for a one-week workshop for young people that will be held in May 2017 in Sieben Linden
Besides this, to complete the 35 working hours a week, the volunteer is free to choose work fields in Sieben Linden that suit their interests and capacities and that support the goals of Sieben Linden. This could be activities like developing educational inputs for kids, supporting the integration of young migrants in the region or in Sieben Linden, working in the garden, working in ecological construction, supporting the website and PRteam, or other self-chosen activities that are related to Sieben Linden Ecovillage.
