Journalism and photographing in Reykjavik
Every year WF Iceland hosts hundreds of international volunteers participating in projects all around the island. WF Iceland publishes a magazine called UNA, where people can read about the life of the organisation.
Renovation and Aurora hunting in East of Iceland
During this work camp volunteers will deal with different tasks related to renovation and maintenance of our houses in the east of Iceland. The work will depend on the skills and knowledge of each volunteer, but focuses mainly on tasks such as painting, cleaning, fixing small things, and acquires basic knowledge of carpentry and construction. During winter in Iceland the accommodations are prepared for the summer. This camp is extremely important for us and for our summer volunteers. In addition to the work, winter in Iceland also means AURORA HUNTING. If you like photography, having an amazing time with friends from all over the world and the northern lights, this camp will suit you perfectly. We will be on the lookout for Aurora Borealis at night throughout the whole camp, so that you will have the opportunity to take photos of this amazing and unique phenomenon. It is very important to bring your camera with you (only cameras that work in long exposure will catch those lights), so don’t forget your tripod and camera. The photos will be of your personal use, but we will also keep the best photos and use them in our brochures, on the website and on social media.
Hveragerði – Health and Environment
The name Hveragerði means ‘hot springs garden.’ Geothermal energy is Hveragerði’s lifeblood, and you probably won’t find such a natural wonder in the middle of a populated area anywhere else in the world.
Peace and children’s rights in the Eastern fjords
This camp focuses on human rights education activities that will be carried out by the WF volunteers in schools in East Iceland. The aim of this camp is to increase awareness about human rights among elementary school aged – children and early adolescents through a non-formal education approach
Discovering Icelandic landscapes
During the workcamps you will have the opportunity to discover Iceland in winter by travelling around in the south and the west
It is a privilege to get the chance to live inside another culture, take part in its day-to-day life, and get to know its people and their way of thinking. Voluntary work has been a part of almost every civilization and society. To work voluntary is an enriching experience, and already gave many people a powerful sense of personal fulfillment and growth.
