Duration

Short-Term (few weeks/months)

Address

Reykjavik
Capital Region
Iceland

Description

The main idea of this initiative is to celebrate Christmas together and to promote peace and friendship among the international volunteers through intercultural learning and exchange. Volunteers will live together and create a cozy atmosphere in the House on the Hill in the outskirts of Reykjavik by putting up lights and Christmas decorations. We will learn Christmas songs from all over the world from each other and, if weather permits, we will sing in the streets of Reykjavik and other public places in town as a sign of peace and multiculturalism. We will also create a Christmas postcard together.

For New Year's Eve, we will organize a small party for the volunteers and we will enjoy Reykjavik´s spectacular fireworks in front of the cathedral. We will also arrange a visit to the 'Imagine Peace Tower' which was designed by Yoko Ono in memory of John Lennon.

Project highlights:

❉ Spread some cheer and share the joy of Christmas with international volunteers this holiday season.

❉ Help promote peace and understanding in a multicultural environment.

❉ Catch a glimpse of the spectacular Northern lights' (Aurora borealis) glowing curtain of greenish yellow lights, dancing in the distance to a spectacular, multicolored fusion stretching across the sky.

❉ Visit the Imagine Peace Tower, composed of 15 large searchlights surrounded by a number of prisms that act like mirrors, reflecting the light vertically into the sky, usually reaching an altitude of at least 4000 meters.


Project dates: December 23, 2018 - January 2, 2019
