Popis

The workcamp is organized in cooperation with the local NGO Cmelak - Friends of Nature Society whose activities are focused on the support of a sustainable way of life, practical nature protection, and environmental education. They transform environmentally damaged and abandoned areas into locations that are attractive for both people and nature. In one area of the Jizera Mountains, they create a New Virgin Forest - a location where unnatural spruce tree monoculture is being replaced by seedlings of original trees. In another area, they maintain wetlands. The aim of this workcamp is to help at a summer camp for children that focuses on practical nature protection in several different locations that Cmelak takes care of (both forests and wetlands). Volunteers will learn about the local region and its flora and will spread the idea of volunteering among locals. Cmelak has organized 18 workcamps so far. In this workcamp, you are actively working for the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal of Life on Land (UN SDG15).
