Coastline cleanup on the island of Videy - Iceland

The city of Reykjavík will once again be our host for this project and the international volunteers will have the opportunity to work on the historical island of Viðey for the 14th year in a row! Viðey is a popular destination during the summer among Icelandic and foreign visitors. Volunteers will beautify the surroundings by cleaning up the area, especially along the coastline, hand-picking garbage or collecting trash blown by the wind or brought by the sea to the shores and the surroundings. Volunteers may carry out some gardening activities as well and possibly make and maintain walking paths. Well maintained paths enable people to visit the area without damaging it and this important work also helps improve visitors' safety. Depending on the advance of the project, volunteers may have other possible tasks such as checking up and repairing garden furniture.

The working day normally runs from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm with breaks for lunch and coffee; however, please be prepared for some flexibility due to the nature of Iceland's changeable weather.

Location: Viðey or “Wood Island” is the largest island in the Kollafjord Bay, just outside Reykjavík, the capital of Iceland. The island is covered by many species of plants and at least 30 species of breeding birds have been counted here.

There is a regular boat connection between the island and the harbour of Reykjavík. The trip takes just about 10 minutes. This makes Viðey so special, it is a peaceful place, very close to the busy city life of the capital.

There are hiking and cycling paths around the island and there is no motor traffic allowed. It also hosts intriguing sculptural art work, among them all nine pairs of basalt pillars that comprise Richard’s Serra’s work Áfangar and Yoko Ono’s “Imagine peace” column, a tower of light in memory of John Lennon.

Project dates:

  • May 12 - May 21, 2020
  • September 15 - September 24, 2020
