Carpe Diem – Seize the Day! (Lützensömmern)
Description: The 'Rittergut', a once agricultural estate is now an educational and meeting place and it is located near Erfurt. In the little, quaint village of Lützensömmern the „Rittergut“ – with his historical buildings and the big park, takes a dominant place. With approximately 20.000 accommodations in one year the estate is a far outside famous location. This location provides children and youth in the context of school trips and project days a lot of space for their personal development and non-formal education. People from all over Germany and Europe use the house with his extraordinary beautiful ambiance as a meeting place. Not only for the small and the big visitors of the estate, also for the employees and volunteers of the house, the motto is: Carpe Diem - Seize the Day!
Type of Work: The over 4 acres large land needs in many areas constant care, renewal and not least the expansion of the experiential and environmental education offers. The participants of the Workcamp will be guided in various manual working projects, which still have to be concretized and decided finally. The aim is to improve the attractiveness of the outside area.
