Zlatna Na Ostrove
Description: The partner of the project is the Regional Association for Nature Conservation and Sustainable Development (BROZ), established in 1997. The activities of BROZ are focused on practical nature conservation and supporting the sustainable development mostly in the region of southwestern Slovakia. The activities of BROZ focus on Danube river restoration projects and rehabilitation of adjacent waterways and wetlands.
Type of Work: The work will be done at the local Eco Farm and Eco Center, where the volunteers will spend time helping with the renovations. Participants will take care of the animals (sheep, horses, cows, goats), help with cleaning the stalls and will help with the environmental conservation efforts of the local nature protection areas. Volunteers will help with preparation of the event horse day.
Study Theme: The workcamp will be visited by INEX Messenger who will organize a workshop focused on current issues in Europe. The volunteers will prepare the "Feast of cultures", an international food festival for the local community, and will join the “volunteering footprint” workshop. Our camps follow the rules of the Sustainability campaign.
Accommodation: The volunteers will stay in the local farm house where beds for sleeping are provided. A sleeping bag is needed. The house has fully equipped kitchen, toilets and showers. The volunteers will prepare food by themselves (breakfasts, dinners) and the lunch will be provided by the local partner. On demand, vegetarian meals can be provided.
Requirements: You should bring a sleeping bag, warm clothes, raincoat, working clothes and gloves, rubber shs, swimming suit, repellent, pictures, recipes and songs from your home country. Any cultural items will be used at a multicultural evening event.
Approximate Location: The workcamp place is on a 3 km long Velkolelsky island near the village Zlatna na Ostrove. The Danube region offers many ways for volunteers to spend their free time. Volunteers can swim, do horseback riding, go birdwatching, fishing and kayaking. There are also thermal swimming pools in nearby Komarno, Velky Meder and Kolarovo.
