Maintenance of a nature trail for children and young people | ijgd 14031 | 2024-08-31 - 2024-09-14 | ENVI,CONS,MANU | Age: 16 - 26

Erlebnis Natur e.V. (ERNA) was founded 20 years ago to get children and young people excited about nature and to promote environmental education. The association offers various programs for groups, has its own children s and youth group and has created the extensive nature experience area ErNat(o)ur in Eutin with numerous learning and experience stations. The range of nature education topics includes the exploration of various biotopes, species protection and promotion, the sustainable use of our habitat and conscious nutrition. The ijgd has been organising volunteer service programmes since 1949. We are an independent, non-profit association for international youth work, a recognised independent youth welfare organisation, and one of the largest and oldest workcamp organisations in Germany. Each year, we assist around 5,000 young people into volunteer work in Germany and abroad. We give them the opportunity to be creative, act in solidarity, take responsibility for themselves, and discover their own true potential and strengths. Our principles: Ecological learning, voluntary contribution, self-organisation, social development, intercultural learning, gender equality, anti-racism/anti-discrimination and political education.

Work: During this workcamp you will make an important contribution to the preservation of a 2km long nature trail for students. The ERNat(o)ur nature trail (https://www.erna-eutin.de/ner/ (only in German)) consists of 16 learning and experience stations where children and young people can gain practical experience on the topics of biotopes, species conservation, sustainable use of our habitat and conscious nutrition. The aim is to encourage students to shape a sustainable environment by teaching them about nature and its interrelationships and raising their awareness of the inestimable value of nature. To ensure that the nature trail can continue to be used, intensive maintenance and care are required. Despite ongoing maintenance and renovation work by the supervising association Erlebnis Natur e.V. (ERNA) (https://www.erna-eutin.de/ (only in German)), there are always construction sites that cannot simply be renewed during ongoing operations. For example, a 100-metre-long boardwalk was completely demolished and rebuilt, and a small landing net pond was renewed and enlarged at the last workcamp in 2022. As part of this year s workcamp, weather protection roofs are to be erected in order to ensure safety for the organisation of around 100 events a year with around 3,000 visitors on the subject of education for sustainability. You will also be carrying out some work on the landing net pond, which will be renovated in 2022, repairing and replacing broken information boards on the nature trail, cutting and repairing paths and preparing two major festivals of the Erlebnis Natur e.V. (ERNA) association, the apple festival on 3rd of October and the 20th anniversary of the association on 7th of October. For the Erlebnis Natur e.V. (ERNA) association, your maintenance work on the nature trail is an important prerequisite for being able to fulfil its self-imposed task of education for sustainable development. he members of the association will of course also pursue this task during your work and provide you with a lot of theoretical and practical knowledge about nature, environment, species and climate protection, sustainable development and sustainable use of our habitat as well as conscious nutrition.
