Online Project: 100 Years of International Workcamps
Description: If you have had a lot of workcamp experience and want to be involved with a special project in relation to the 100 year anniversary of the workcamp movement then this is for you. In a group of around 10 people, we will focus on how workcamps have influenced individuals, local communities and what the future of workcamps might look. We will also discuss the global impact of workcamps and in what ways they help to support and maintain Peace and Solidarity. In addition, we will discuss how the role of workcamps might change in the future and whether there may be an undiscovered potential to workcamps. In conjunction with this, we will further consider how the role of workcamps might change in the world following the Covid 19 pandemic.
Type of Work: The final aim of the project will be to produce a video which can be presented at a variety of events and conferences related to the 100th anniversary of workcamps. This video would be a summary of our discussions and collective thoughts on the ideas mentioned above and would encourage others to appreciate workcamps.
Accommodation: You stay safe and sound at home and meet other international participants in the digital space.
Requirements: You should have workcamp experience and believe that workcamps are beneficial and perhaps even underappreciated. You should be happy to share your ideas and be comfortable with being recorded and being a part of the final video.
