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.
“What we are waiting for is not as important as what happens to us while we are waiting. (Mandy Hale)
We all have one thing in common right now: we are waiting for the pandemic to end. But what if instead of waiting for an end, we start a new beginning? We can start to broaden our perspective.
This workshop is not only about waiting together, but also about thinking and discussing. Let’s be honest: Have you ever thought about waiting? Somehow it permeates our whole life, doesn’t it?: We wait for our food to finally be ready to eat, for a new day to make everything different then the day before, to go out and see our friends and families again, a new stage of life, a graduation and so much more. So while we are waiting for this pandemic to end, let’s talk about something we do almost on a daily basis but never thought about.
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.
