Bear the peace 2018
Description: Velebit Association Kuterevo aims at preservation of natural and cultural heritage. For 16 years, the organization is running Refuge for bears and people, which provides opportunity for learning about and from bears and nature. The Bear Refuge has very simple living conditions, and we try to make as little impact on the environment as possible. You will find out about bears (biology, ecology and mythology) and about the history and coexistence of different nationalities in this region. The topic of peace will be more focused on peaceful actions to our planet and about peace as a form of balance in ecosystems. Peace, as a word, will take a step back from being used just for period without wars, and it will become the main focus between culture, civilization and wilderness.
Type of Work: The work will include creating messages of wholesomeness and harmony that human beings, other beings and our planet are together in.Volunteers will also make various other art pieces, and help with other work in the refuge, which might include light physical labor. It may include working with hay, cutting grass, branches, feeding the bears, some light construction work with fixing fences, wooden constructions, benches etc.
Study Theme: Sustainable lifestyle, learning how to live in harmony with nature, spiritual ecology, possibly learning what is permaculture.
Accommodation: Wooden house with common sleeping room. Mattresses will be provided, but a good sleeping bag is necessary. Outdoor shower powered by solar energy (which means that water is not always warm) andcomposting toilets. Volunteers will cook for themselves, vegan food with vegetarian option. Very limited Internet in order to connect with nature and each other.
Requirements: Be ready to live in very simple conditions, in a wooden house and with little privacy. Some artistic/creative skills are very welcome. Be ready to work and help.
