Content of the training
Are you interested in nature protection and international voluntary service? Would you like to lead an international workcamp in an environmental protection project yourself? Then join us in the Erasmus+ training course “Group Leading in Environmental Projects”! The main question of this training is: How do I lead an international group? We will have workshops on group processes, how to deal with conflicts and your individual leadership style. In addition, we will discuss topics such as environmental education, ecological sustainability and climate justice, as well as many practicaltips and tricks for organization and everyday life with larger groups. You will get to know other motivated volunteers who would also like to lead workcamps in nature protection, as well as the people behind IBG. Experienced team leaders give you insights into ‘their’ workcamps and tell how they overcame challenges or conflicts. The training is primarily intended for prospective workcamp leaders. Of course, the units will also help you outside of the wor camp cosmos, for example by leading youth exchanges or other groups.
