“Pewobe” is a local registered organization in the youth welfare service in Frankfurt/Oder. Since 1996, Pewobe is running kindergartens, youth clubs, assisted living for youngsters, child emergency service as well as assistance for families in need. All projects of this association aim to have an international orientation and promote education for tolerance. They already have established many contacts for international cooperation in several countries. Since 1999, Pewobe hosts international youth meetings where young people from Frankfurt (Oder) and Słubice (situated in Poland, the town next to Frankfurt) are volunteering to make these projects a reality.
During the 14 days of the workcamp the volunteers will participate, organize and implement several activities around the topic of Peace. The workcamp will be part of a campaign called “Frankfurt macht Frieden” – translated as Frankfurt creates peace: https://www.facebook.com/FFmachtFrieden/
In order to commemorate the anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, two larger events are planned that will be supported by the workcamp volunteers. Together with our local team, the volunteers will help with all the preparation for the two events and organize their own side activities and small workshop in different institutions, like Kindergarten, day care center, etc. One of the main events will be probably on 6th of August, a German-Polish Peace Festival for families where we will celebrate together with the inhabitants, bring together people with different backgrounds and organize activities for them. The other one will probably be on 9th of August, where we will try to build the longest chain of paper cranes along the border. The side events will be developed and implemented in co-ordination with all the volunteers. Besides that, the volunteers will supervise the information center and contact point for the events, and promote the activities. Please note: The activities might be adapted based on the situation in summer 2021.
The workcamp will take place in the center of the city. Therefore, the accommodation will be located close to the center as well. The accommodation will be in a flat with several rooms. You will be asked to bring your own sleeping bag and isolation sheet. The volunteers will prepare their meals together. Please note: The accommodation might be adapted based on the situation in summer 2021 and the then required hygienic concepts.

The volunteers will have a chance to get to know different concepts for peace and the reason we commemorate the end of the Second World War. We will arrange a guided visit to the former concentration camp Sachsenhausen (nearby Berlin), as well as visit to different places in Berlin that are connected to the topic. Volunteers will be able to get to know Frankfurt (Oder) and Słubice (Poland) and the life at the border. Together we can explore the local sights and historical places. The city has a famous lake called “Helenesee”, which you can visit during the leisure time.
Frankfurt (Oder) is located east of Brandenburg and is a town of around 58000 inhabitants. It is located on the west side of the Oder River, around 80km east of Berlin. Before the end of the Second World War, the city of Słubice in Poland has been a part of Frankfurt (Oder). At the end of the war the Oder River, which was passing through the city, became the border. Nowadays the cities have decided to work closely together as a European Twin Town that make decisions together and cooperate in all areas of life.
Please note: Venue of the camp is not Frankfurt/Main but Frankfurt/Oder in the East of Berlin. After registration, we require a self-declaration concerning the children and youth protection. Please bring clothes for warm and cold weather, raincoat, sleeping bag, camping mat, bathing suit, your ideas, your talents and something specific about peace from your country.-Special notes on the COVID 19 pandemic-
