Live Big in a Tiny House (Glücksburg near Baltic Sea)
Climate for Peace Programme
Description: Build a Tiny House together with other volunteers and learn more about minimalist lifestyles. The Tiny House will later be used as an information mobile on sustainable housing and renewable energy. At the end of the work camp, the participants may have acquired some skills to plan their own Tiny House. The individual building steps will be explained and put into practise. Depending on work phases there are parallel maintenance activities in the climate park of the centre: the work camp will take place on the grounds of the artefact climate park https://www.artefact.de/, where visitors explore the "fossil" greenhouse effect at more than forty stations and develop ideas for building, living and working in a "sustainable" way.
Type of Work: Under expert guidance, the house walls are manufactured and installed, windows and doors are built-in and the roof construction is built. The wooden post-and-beam walls are insulated and covered with wood on the inside and outside. Other work on the grounds of the "Climate Park" visitor centre: woodwork, painting, gardening and other maintenance work.
