Beach cleaning where the road ends | WF412 | 2021-10-07 - 2021-10-21 | ENVI,STUD | Age: 18 - 99

Work: During the workcamp we will be cleaning the coastline in Strandir which is the most rural area in Iceland. Every day we will work 5 to 6 hours. During the coastline cleaning we will document the process by weighing the garbage we find as well as measure the meters and square meters of the coastline we cleaned. On days with very poor weather conditions, we will be sorting and cleaning the things we find with the goal of reusing and recycling. Our work will depend on weather conditions and that’s why we have to be flexible. Please keep in mind that the work might be physically hard, and you should be prepared for unfriendly weather. This is a perfect camp for people who like outdoor work and physical challenges. We will be doing workshops together every now and then about global warming and sustainability. If you have ideas for workshops that you would like to do yourself then that is always welcome

Accomodation and food: Worldwide Friends volunteers will be staying in a local building in Nordurfjordur. Beds are provided; however, volunteers should bring their own warm sleeping bags or borrow one from WF if they don’t want to bring it. Wireless internet access is provided free of charge. Food is included for the duration of the workcamp, however, everyone is expected to do their fair share of the cooking and cleaning. Since it is always nice to try new and different dishes, volunteers are encouraged to bring along their favourite recipes from home!

Location: Norðurfjörður is a part of Árneshreppur the least populous municipality in Iceland, with only 53 inhabitants. It stretches over a wide area, though, covering some 780 km2. The population density is thus only 0, 07 individuals per km2. The area does not enjoy any public transport, apart from one to two weekly flights from Reykjavik to Gjögur, a small settlement which is only inhabited during the summertime. The area is a paradise for hikers.

Location and Leisure: Worldwide Friends volunteers have free access to the local geothermal-heated swimming pool in the village. Traditionally, natural pools have played an important social role in Icelandic culture. Some leisure activities will also be organized. The area is one of the most popular in Iceland for hiking so please bring your hiking shoes.
