This is a joint project of many workcamps organisations worldwide. We believe that especially in times as challenging as these, it is important to raise our voices for solidarity and international friendship. International workcamps were created 100 years ago to work towards mutual understanding, peace and solidarity beyond borders. Let’s keep this spirit and find new ways to get to know and support each other. This virtual workcamp is organized by different workcamp organisations worldwide as an effort to keep up international volunteering, even if most of us cannot travel right now.
Description: Music connects people from all over the world: it speaks in emotions and doesn’t know boundaries. Through songs from different countries or regions, we can get to know interesting aspects of other cultures – therefore we will do a one-week challenge, in which we will choose one genre for each day, and we will present our favourite songs from our home countries to the other participants. In order to do that, we will first get to know ourselves and decide on the genres we are interested in (from Indie, Pop, Oldies, Hip Hop to Classical or Electronic music etc., we can be creative here!). In the following 6 days, we will talk about 5 different songs each session – before playing the songs, the presenters will be always invited to tell some interesting and fun facts about the artist, the context and the lyrics of the song (ca. 5 min).
With that challenge, we can broaden our horizons and add amazing new music to the soundtracks of our daily lives that help us to get over the time staying at home.
We will meet in Zoom or Skype. All music lovers or open-minded people in general are very welcome to join!
Your own home. It might not be a brand new experience, but hey, you might be missing out on sleeping on hard field beds, sharing a room with the whole workcamp group or having to make a schedule for the showers. Is that really so bad...? Plus, in our virtual workcamp, you might have a chance to see how different homes all over the world look like!

This workcamp will be taking place entirely online. It is accessible to everybody with a working internet connection. No borders, no visa, no need to travel, so you are saving CO2-emissions which is really nice for our beautiful planet! While it is important to keep physical distance at the moment, we can create social proximity in the digital world.
