In tents on the festival grounds. Please bring your own tent and camping equipment (sleeping mat, sleeping bag). Depending on the current pandemic regulations, we can arrange in advance for volunteers to share a tent if you don't have one. The camp will be held in the open air for the entire duration.
The sanitary infrastructure on the campsite is self-organised and self-built (separating toilets, washbasins, showers). All volunteers are responsible for the communal maintenance or, if necessary, the construction of this infrastructure.
The common workcamp language is English. All volunteers should have a good command of this.
Interest in climate protection and climate activism; high willingness to self-organise; acceptance of simple living conditions; manual skills are helpful. Bringing a bike can be useful, but is not a prerequisite. As the workcamp takes place outdoors, it is essential to bring a sleeping mat, a sleeping bag, sun and rain protection and a drinking bottle.
