Welcome to the European Amazon
Description: Special Nature Reserve “Gornje Podunavlje” that surrounds Backi Monostor is one of the most valuable flood-prone areas throughout the course of the Danube River. It is distinguished by its exceptional biodiversity. The rich flora and fauna of the reserve are also important due to the current process of establishing Transboundary Biosphere Reserve “Mura-Drava-Danube”. The Mosaic of Water and Forest is an important basis which is used to form a way of life for the inhabitants of Backi Monostor. To a large extent, the village is still highly represented by traditional crafts, all kinds of different products created by materials from the natural environment (wood, reed, and mud, rushes).
Type of Work: Throughout the camp, you will help improve the condition of the Special Nature Reserve, improve the eco-tourism infrastructure, advance the eco-touristic promotion of the village, raise the awareness on environment protection, and provide quality cultural programs during the 2-day cultural festival “Bodrog fest”. Work will be done in shifts and there will be a variety of different work types: physical work in the Reserve, development of promo materials (website translation, leaflets and maps design) and organizing the festival.
Study Theme: Exploring the village and the culture – traditional crafts, national costumes, traditional houses, and excursions to nature with camping in the forest, educational and artistic events during the festival.
Accommodation: Volunteers will be accommodated in the Center of Civil Activities, with toilets and kitchen provided. The CCA is located in the center of the village. Showers are located in a separate facility, but near the volunteers' working place. Bicycles will also be provided for faster transportation. All volunteers are kindly asked to bring their own sleeping bags.
Requirements: Since the workcamp envisions development of promo materials, having experience and knowledge in IT and tourism marketing and promotion is an asset. The organizers will provide a camera in case that volunteers don’t have one. If possible, you should bring your own lap-top.
