One World Health and Wellbeing Festival
Description: The One World Festival is a truly magical mid-summer event. Individuals and families come together from all over the world to share in a unique atmosphere of rest and activity, fun and freedom, challenge and adventure. The One World Festival presents over 200 workshops and lectures throughout the week, with separate activity programs for teens and children of all age groups. All teachers are dedicated and experienced in a range of therapies, natural movement and dance forms, exercise for physical and spiritual development, holistic health, arts, crafts and sports, as well as in specialist areas such as Natural Cookery.
Type of Work: One World and the cultural of learning it brings together would not be possible without the help of its volunteers. They provide the behind the scenes work during the day that make it all happen. Volunteers arrive prior to the start and help set up various areas like the kid’s village, and site office. During the festival volunteers are split into teams. The largest being the catering team that prepares a macrobiotic menu for everyone on site. Managed by our resident Italian head chefs there are morning afternoon and evening shifts. We also have the site team that’s made up of a mix of permanent staff and volunteers. The roles will vary during the day depending on the needs of the festival. At the end the volunteers pack down the festival and tidy the site.
Study Theme: Time will be allowed for volunteers to have its own study session. The Festival itself has numerous workshops based around self development and volunteers are strongly encouraged to attend as many as they can. When not working, volunteers can and are encouraged to attend any of the workshops; yoga is always popular, both drumming workshops fill up fast and when the suns out everyone tries to hit the pool.
Accommodation: Camping: we will supply tents. Usually there are 2 or more people per tent. There are toilets, hot showers and hand basins. Indoor accommodation is available but must be booked separately on our website. Food is macrobiotic and there will be 3 meals a day. There will be an office on site for the charging of phones. There is wifi available.
Requirements: Interests in conservation, self-development health and well-being. Particularly vegans and vegetarians wanting to learn how to cook macrobiotic.
Notes: Whilst we do provide tents, we strongly encourage volunteers to bring their own. Please bring a warm sleeping bag and sleeping mat. There is a pool on site and a fancy dress night.
PLEASE NOTE: It is possible for children to attend. If the are over 16 with a responsible adult they can apply as a volunteer. If they are under 16, they will have to pay a fee and attend as a guest. This is negotiable and you should contact IVS to discuss.
