Worldwide Friends (WF), was founded in 2001 as a non-profit organization promoting nature and peace-oriented activities for volunteers wanting to spend some time in Iceland. Our main theme for this year is to give education about the 17 Sustainable Goals of the United Nations and to clean the whole coastline of Iceland. The main activities that we offer are workcamps, seminars, local events, and exchange programs suitable both for young people and adults.

Work: The workcamp leaders will work as a team under the supervision of the Project Manager of the organization. They will be involved in preparing, organizing, running, and evaluating Nature-oriented, Educational, and Environmental Protection Projects in Iceland. Tasks: coordinate the work, organize house schedule, and leisure activities, shop, supervise cooking sessions and plan excursions. Organize Workshops. Apart from these additional responsibilities, you will participate in general activities as a volunteer. In each group, there are two or three leaders from the organization. Projects are organized with international volunteers Main Project Activities: Beach Cleaning, Forestry, Agriculture, Creative Art, Recycle & Renovation. The main goal of this project is to improve the environmental education and consciousness of the project’s participants. Please note that this project is a learning/exchange project where everyone is expected to contribute their own knowledge and experience and not a standard work camp.

Accomodation and food: During the workcamps the leaders will share a double and quadruple room in a house fully equipped. Beds are provided, however, volunteers should bring their own warm sleeping bags. Food is provided and everyone is expected to do their fair share of the cooking and cleaning. We provide a well-balanced and healthy variety of food products that includes a wide variety of whole grains, seasonal fruits & vegetables, pantry staples, dairy products, and vegetarian/vegan options.

Location and Leisure: Weekends are free. Try to plan activities with the volunteers. Usually, the excursions take place during the weekends. Excursions include unique Icelandic sights, such as waterfalls, volcanic and geothermal areas, glaciers, lava forests, hot springs, rhyolite mountain ranges, steam vents, or even icebergs. The area around the house is also great for hiking. Plan ahead, share your travel plans, stay on the trail, properly dispose of waste, leave areas as you found them, and do not approach or feed wildlife. Don t go for high and steep mountains without a professional guide.
