Promoting voluntarism through journalism and photography in the East of Iceland

  • Volunteer Opportunity posted by CADIP




Short-Term (few weeks/months)




Every year, hundreds of international volunteers visit Iceland and participate in volunteer projects all around the island. The volunteers in this project will create and put together a magazine promoting volunteer work, telling stories of volunteers' involvement and contribution to the environment of Iceland, and promoting the work of the organisers of these projects.

In the beginning of the project, volunteers will receive an introduction about the tasks. Afterwards, we will choose a topic for the newsletter. This is a great opportunity to step into different projects and to get to know Iceland in a better way. The group will take photos and make videos and interviews with volunteers, local hosts and people living in the area. The outcome will be published in the magazine. At the end of the project, we will prepare the final version of the magazine and publish it. Don't forget to bring your cameras and tripods because we will also go for some Auroras hunting. A laptop could be useful as well.

A part of this project will concentrate on intercultural learning and exchange. Every evening, a different country will cook for the rest of the group and will be in charge of presenting their culture and country of origin in a non formal way. It could be a presentation, games, theater or however you would like to show it. Therefore we recommend you to bring traditional food, photos or whatever you think is important and nice for the international evenings.

This project is a way to enjoy an amazing time in Iceland with other international volunteers and to have an incredible experience where participants share their knowledge with each other while they are exploring creativity, environmental issues and intercultural learning.
