02.05. - 09.05.2020
This project is actively working for SDG 13 (Climate Action) and SDGs 15 (Life on Land),
organized together with MCE (Mongolian workCamps Exchange) since 2002. Before 1990,
the forests were covered with 10% of land, but 7% today, caused by cutting trees without
any controls and forest fire. There are increasing activities by some organizations to plant
trees, but it takes a long time here to grow trees and the current and water level of river has
been decreased. So, we should also join this movement and summer workcamps of MCE
keep watering, so the forests have been grown quite well. As this project originally started
with targeting Japanese people who has series of the national holidays in 04/29 and 05/04-
06, be ready to have many Japanese joining partly!
We will plant trees in MCE orphanage project site by digging holes, planting trees and
watering the plants. May is the best and only season to plant trees in Mongolia. We may
also visit the orphanage, World Tanabata Action, plant vegetables in the orphanage farm,
etc. depending on the situation.
The future plan of international workcamps in Mongolia and Greening Asia. Bring some
GER (Mongolian traditional tent) and Youth hostel. Very warm sleeping bag is needed!
Meals will be cooked by volunteers by turns. Sleeping bag is necessary.
Cultural exchange program, excursions, etc.
English (Mongolian is also welcomed!)
