State Forestry – ‘Oudemolen’
Description: The ‘Drentsche Aa’ area is a varied old cultural landscape, shaped by age old interplay of agriculture and nature. The ‘Drentsche Aa’ is also the name of the stream that meanders through this area and creates a typical landscape that is declared National Park. It includes 16 authentic villages. The partner in this project is the Dutch State Forestry, commissioned by the Dutch government to manage a large part of the nature reserves in the Netherlands. In 2017 it will be the 10th Anniversary of this project in Oudemolen and they will organise some special activities to celebrate this.
Type of Work: The participants will do different activities of nature protection like cutting, dredging, pilling up the paths, haymaking and light construction work. You will also work together with other local people who do voluntary nature work. The local rangers are very supportive and looking forward to host you in their beautiful area.
Study Theme: During the 2017 international volunteering projects SIW aims to encourage a discussion focussing on climate and sustainability between the participants and the local community. Participants can choose one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals for 2030 (source: 2030 Agenda UN) that is most relevant to their project. After a group discussion participants are invited to find a creative way, such as a play/performance, song, poetry or art out of recycling materials, to promote the targets that are part of the chosen SDG and how people can contribute to reaching them.
Accommodation: Volunteers are expected to bring their own tent, airbed or matrass and sleeping bag. You will stay at the beautiful situated private campsite of the State Forestry location Oudemolen. The group will cook for themselves in a barn that is equipped with all cooking facilities. There is one shower and one toilet. Bicycles will we provided, this will be your transportation to the various worksites.
