In March 2022, the non-profit organisation IBG e.V. and the Biosphaerengebiet Schwaebische Alb invite a group of 13-15 young volunteers from different countries to an international workcamp at the Forest School (“Waldschulheim”) Indelhausen in Southern Germany. In this camp, the volunteers will help with practical nature conservation tasks on the Swabian Alb and learn about nature conservation through forest management in workshops with the forest rangers and pedagogical staff of the Forest School.
IBG is a non-profit organisation based in Stuttgart Germany. It was founded in 1965 with the aim of contributing to peace and international understanding through international youth community services (workcamps). Under the motto “... peacing the world together!” IBG wants to empower young people around the globe to help build a more peaceful world. IBG wants to involve as many volunteers as possible to work together on making our world a better place. In 2022, the organization’s activities focus on the topic of climate protection in forests and bogs.
The Biosphere Reserve of the Swabian Alb covers an area of 85,270 hectares within the mountain range of the Swabian Alb, also called Swabian Jura. It was established in January 2008 as a biosphere area of the state of Baden-Württemberg. Since May 2009, the area has been recognised as a UNESCO biosphere reserve.
The Forest School “Waldschulheim Indelhausen” is a pedagogical institution founded in 1977. It is part of the regional State Forestry “ForstBW”, which is responsible for the entire state forest (a quarter of the forest area) in federal state of Baden-Wuerttemberg. The institution serves 1,000 students and teachers every year as a place for non-formal learning on the topic of forest and nature. Groups of students of all school types stay here for two weeks at a time to participate in different tasks of practical forest work, an educational program about the forest and excursions as well as games and sports activities.
