Duration

Short-Term (few weeks/months)


If you are concerned about climate change, waste management, animal protection, sustainable solutions and other environmental topics, then this project is the one for you. Local Icelandic environmental issues as well as issues from the participants’ countries will be addressed. Becoming one of over 2 million tourists coming to Iceland every year will leave a mark. This project will help you to be an environmentally aware traveler and consumer.

The Environmental Awareness Workshops will get a chance to improve the local environment through hands-on activities. Our groups usually join a whale protection and awareness campaign run in cooperation with IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare). It may also be possible to organize a visit to a local recycling centre where a tour of the plant is given and the activities are explained. There is a selection of workshops where a deeper understanding of issues can be studied and discussed. Topics can include issues like animal farming, food waste, and sustainable practices such as collaborative consumption and veganism.

Participants should have a motivation to learn and share on environmental and global issues, and should be open to new cultures. All volunteers are encouraged to bring environmental and sustainability suggestions to the group and collaborate with the leaders in planning activities.
