FINLAND – Solidarity work camps

Emmaus Åland

Emmaus Åland, located on the demilitarized and neutralised Åland Islands in the Baltic Sea, is pleased to welcome applications for the two week summer camp of 2018. More information about Emmaus Åland: http://www.emmaus.ax

  • Where?

The Åland Islands, Finland (Locate this place thanks to Google Maps)

  • When?

From July 30th to August 12th

  • What for?

The volunteers will collect and sort second-hand goods, work in our garden, help organize the Emmaus Åland festival and discover and learn about the Emmaus movement together. Sport and cultural activities will be an integral part of the work camp.

This year, the focus of the camp will be on cross-border social sustainability. In order to forge new bonds and strengthen and deepen cooperation, we invite primarily activists from our partner groups and other Emmaus groups.

We welcome 10-15 participants. Our goal is diversity in participation when it comes to country of origin as well as gender. Emmaus Åland will cover any costs incurred by the presence of the volunteers, such as accommodation and food. In case the sending organisation has difficulties in covering the travel costs of the participants, we will also cover travel costs.
